    Ok I have been trying to add some other boot options and for some reason have been having some issues.

    I started with an issue where my xxx_bcdw.ini lines were running on top of eachother where I would try to execute it from the menu and it would say not found and I could see it calling:
    /images/xxx.iso ; Some commented out text.
    Not found. It think because it was trying to execute this commented out text. Well I think I fixed this by just putting an Enter after the line in xxx_bcdw.ini's this would then cause the code in these files to move down a line when starting a new file.

    I tested this and was finally able to get some of these to load.

    Well I have one that still will not load and I don't understand what is failing it. In fact I wonder if it is even running the image file I defined.

    See the screen shows this when running:
    starting cd....  OK.
    Bootable CD wizard v.2.0a1 copyright (c)2004 by Alex Kopylov
    Error loading Operating System.


    I don't understand where it is getting this code. As my autoexec.bat doesn't contain a echo starting cd... ok

    Any ideas??

    Here is what some of my bcdw.ini looks like:
    [MenuItems]
    C:\                    ; Boot from drive C:
    \i386\setupldr.bin    ; Launch "The Ultimate Boot CD for Windows"; ^ Runs a pre-installed Windows environment, loaded with diagnostic tools.

      I believe the text: starting cd.... OK. originates from \plugin\Multiboot-003\bcdw\files\loader.bin
      and gets written to BOOTSECT.BIN

      make sure the last line of any of the the XXX_BCDW.INI is an empty one as you mentioned

      the program Agent Ransack is excellent when searching for text in files, and it is swift, use it all the time ^_^

        Keep in mind that a semi-colin is not a comment in BCDW. These are used as seperators and as already mentioned you must make sure the last line of all seperate MYPROGRAM_BCDW.INI files is a BLANK LINE or it gets appended to the same line as the last file and causes nothing but trouble including that menu entry asking for a password.

        Each entry has 5 sections
        ;path to image ;menu entry ;description of program ;special commands for linux ;password

          Yeah I figured out that this line is part of the bcdw plugin.

          starting cd...



          Must be with my image file. I will have to look into this.
