    Hi!
    anybody had a look at how to get the new Backtrack 4 to work? I know, it's not final but only rc right now, but I thought I'd ask anyway... If my dl finishes I'll try to figure out how to modify the bt2 multiboot plugin, but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask beforehand...

    BTW it might be a good idea to put a note on the How to include a custom image to tell people what they can actually use... for instance, I found out that it seems I can use my Acronis True Image Home 2009 Rescue Medium (.iso) while most live cds etc won't work... Which is not really surprising but giving some pointers would be nice...

      I think I got this to work now... I changed some filenames in the inf file and some options in the ini...
      The only problem i had was that the bt2 plugin used isolinux.bin which was no longer on the bt4 cd... trying the iso in a vm, it seems to work non-the-less which might be cause by me having a isolinux.bin from knoppix or something...
      Oh, end the options used in the menu.lst from the bt4 iso were quite different then the ones in the plugin... i just used the ones from the menu.lst and appended the proper initrd= part, but i'm not sure if that was the right way to pass the options or if they might be different now...

        Okay, all my tests seemed to work. I just uploaded my modified plugin to MegaUpload. It includes the isolinux.bin from knoppix in it's files folder. This folder is also the place where you should place either the iso (untested cause i have problems with unisofs) ot all the files from the dvd. I tested it with bt4-pre-final.iso from Remote Exploit.

          I'm receiving an error message up on boot up of the Backtrack 4 Pre-Final image. The error is "alert! dev/ram0 does not exist". I'm guessing this probably has something to do with how my syslinux.cfg is setup. Any info would be helpfull.:)

          Here's my menu.lst config for backtrack4

          title BackTrack 4 Pre Final
          kernel /BackTrack4/files/boot/vmlinuz vga=0x317 ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw quiet
          initrd /BackTrack4/files/boot/initrd.gz

            Try this instead:
            title BackTrack FrameBuffer (1024x768)
            kernel /BackTrack4/files/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper nopersistent rw quiet vga=0x317 
            initrd /BackTrack4/files/boot/initrd.gz
            

            If you're afraid of taking any chances then the chances are great that you will never learn anything

              Sorry No Joy Joy. I'm receiving a different error message now which mean that we're making progress.

              ERROR:
              hda_request: I/O error, dev, hda, sector 4

              Now I'm getting stumped

                That looks like a problem with your hard drive. You might want to run some drive diagnostics from UBCD4Win like HDTune.

                You could try running it from RAM:

                title BackTrack Graphical Mode from RAM
                kernel /BackTrack4/files/boot/vmlinuz BOOT=casper boot=casper toram nopersistent rw quiet
                initrd /BackTrack4/files/boot/initrd.gz
                


                BTW. I haven't had time to test any of this yet.

                  I'm running BT4 from a 16GB thumb drive. I know that the HDD is good. I'll try these parameters.

                      It is very cool that one can make a plugin for Back Track 4 (BT4). However, this is a big Linux distro that has far different purposes than UBCD4WIN.

                      In my small-world viewpoint, I would prefer to place BT4 on USB with UNETBOOTIN. I have done this, and it works great.

                      Cheers

                          I am trying this now. Thanks for your hard work.
                          One thing I noticed is, many of the plugins have a file named something like:
                          'Copy the contents of the ISO here'
                          or
                          'Copy the ISO here.'

                          I am guessing I need to extract the contents of the ISO to the files dir. We'll see if that was right! :-)

                            I'm having issues with this plugin. I use it as well as BT3 because this has more tools, but won't connect to the internet. However, when I burn the cd, it only shows BackTrack 3 on the menu. No BT4. Why not?

                              Ok. I fixed it so that BT4 shows up, but I get an error. I would give a prtscn but it won't work. So here's what the screen says when I boot BT4:
                              IO APIC Resources could not be allocated.
                              Loading, please wait...

                              BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)
                              Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

                              What's up here? What does this mean? If it makes any difference, I'm using Sun VirtualBox to boot it.

                                Most likely this is a conflict. Did you add other multi boot plugins?
                                Add one filesystem.squashfs only.
