I was wondering if you could Install MenuetOs to an empty harddrive and make it so it boots up when you start the computer

when it's the first partition on the drive, and it's a fat32 partition you can let menuet read the files of harddisk at boot time (read ramdisk from /hd/1) their are som programs here also that let you boot menuetos from dos or from the os menu that comes with windows nt (and clones) if you install more than one os, but i tried the last one without sucess..
look in the forums and maybe on [url]meosfiles.narod.ru/index_eng.htm[/url]

any easy way or HDD-distro in there?

Plus, it will be more good if it supports GRUB.

BTW, i heard there is some tech to enable to boot any area on HDD, i can't remember it now

Hi,

Found that booting from cd "EZ" "el torito" standard works best and having hd parameters pre-set gives Meos on powerup and HD data available.

HD booting using Menuet.img and Meosload prog by Trans will work with image written from GridWorks "EZ" distro.

Autoexec.bat for HD boot.
should have M.com or Meosload.com (depending on distro) and menuet.img must be on FAT32 primary drive.



go to distro area other forum or "new Stuff for .77 on this forum.


get "EZ" distro @ www.geocities.com/wemakeitbig

run tinypad

read instructions
