I've created an image of my windows XP primary partition using using "Selfimage". I now have a 2 GB myxp.img file. Before doing that I have installed Firadisk driver on the xp system. So the myxp.img is a bootable image that supports RAMDISK..
I want to burn this myxp.img on a blank DVDR and make this DVD a bootable dvd using grub4dos and load the myxp.img image into RAM using grub4dos. I have a bootable floppy image with grub4dos (grub.ima) that has 2 files in it: GRLDR and MENU.LST. I used UltraISO and edited the MENU.LST as follows:
map --mem (cd0)/myxp.img (hd0)
I used Nero to create a bootable DVDR and used the grub.ima with the modified menu.lst above as boot image for nero and placed myxp.img on the DVDr root.
I booted my machine using thus DVDR but got the following error from grub4dos:
"Error 23: error while parsing number"
What am I missing here?
According to the grub4dos tutorial my menu.lst is correct, or isn't it?
First line mapping myxp.img from first cdrom device (i only have one).
Then map-hook (whatever that means)
then setting root as first hard drive and first active partition (this is where i suspect that causing the error, maybe I should hide my physical hd0.0 partition? This is my physical C hard drive.. I'm a newbie to rgub4dos, so I'm not sure)
last line chainloads to ntldr that exists inside myxp.img...
