MicroXP & tiny core dualboot
« on: March 03, 2016, 12:08:16 AM »
Don't tell me there is a topic of it! So, How can i boot MicroXP v0.82 with tiny core, if my netbook has no CD-ROM(flash or iso booting will be alternative).
And is it possible to dual boot side by side(like Virtualbox does ,when you start two OS'es simultaneously).
I have tried Installing MicroXP with rufus,unetbootin(both on one Windows host) ,installation has been started , when it needs to reboot inside installation, it returns to installation again :'( :'(

grub2 will boot an iso directly, there are a couple of threads on the subject in these forums or you can look at the grub documentation.

When i used rufus,for instance, got common error 'no previous version of NT can be found'(tested with both ntfs,fat32).Might grub4dos work with microxp?

You should probably ask in an NT forum.

This isn't a tinycore issue.

Hi gerald_clark
While I agree this isn't a Tinycore issue, the description for  Off-Topic - Tiny Core Lounge  states:

"Whatever" area - Hardware, Politics, Love&War, What's on your mind, etc..
In my opinion, that means his question can be posted here.

I don't disagree about posting here.
The answer is that configuring a bootloader to load MicroXP is an XP issue, not a tinycore issue.
He will have better luck asking in an XP forum.
As for configuring a bootloader to boot tinycore, that is amply covered in the wiki.

No problem.  I wasn't really too verbose because I recommend asking in an XP forum two posts up.
Now I see I said NT when I meant XP.

SORRY FOR NT-related! So i got MicroXP working 8) (OH MY GOD IT WAS INTENSIVELY HARD) using WinSetupFromUsb on WIndows hostwith options 'format as NTFS','install NTLDR'(but shows grub4dos screen with 2-part installation) ,and i need advice  on dualbooting with tc. Is EasyBCD appropriate for making dualboot possible(tc might use syslinux or grub).,if yes,what further hints you can give me.
Code: [Select]
menu.lst:


#graphicsmode 0x6A
graphicsmode -1 640 480:800 24:32 || graphicsmode -1
## Menu AutoNumber
write 0x8274 0x2001
 
#graphicsmode -1 800:640 -1 24:32 || graphicsmode -1
#font /unifont.hex.gz
 
 
#clear mappings and set root in case we return from bootmgr
map --unmap=0:0xff
map --unhook
map --rehook
ls /usbdrive.tag > nul || find --set-root --devices=hf /usbdrive.tag > nul
ls /default > nul && default /default

map --unmap=0:0xff
map --unhook && map --rehook

ls /usbdrive.tag > nul || find --set-root --devices=hf /usbdrive.tag

configfile /winsetup.lst




ls /mnt/sdc1
grldr menu.lst plpbt.bin...
grub4dos conf to boot MicroXP:

Code: [Select]

All that is too much effort..  Learn to use grub2 which can detect then boot Windows and Linux from their separate partitions

PLEASE DON'T DELETE THIS,IT MIGHT WORK FOR OTHERS WHO HAS SUCH NEED!
I did not use GRUB2,instead i used non-sleek WIndows's boot.ini method according to these guides http://www.highlandsun.com/hyc/linuxboot.html, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/suse-opensuse-60/boot-linux-suse-using-boot-ini-from-windows-xp-244728/, and it WORKS! :)
