  • Hi, i’m trying to do this but i can’t find the menu.lst file. Where would that be?

  • You have to create menu.lst by yourself.
    While saving in notepad give the filename as menu.lst and enclose it with double quotes .Like this “menu.lst”

  • Holy do-do cakes! Thank you for this tip!

    I accomplished this on Vista SP2 Home Premium.
    I tested it and it really works!
    I was let down when I found out that I could only download and not burn the ISO to the USB.
    Also I have a problem burning data on CDs/DVDs on my computer, it can only read data.
    There is also a tutorial on the web to install Windows 7 from a USB by Grub4Dos! Amazing!
    I think USB/Flash methods are a messiah to computers than to clunky CDs.
    Thank you very much!!!

    • I am glad that you liked my tip.
      I agree with you.USB Flash Drives are much better than CD/DVDs

  • Thanks! This also works for the latest (as of this posting) version of Partition Wizard, 6, too

  • i keep getting bootmnger not found hmmmm

    • Can you please post the exact error message that you are getting?
      A screenshot would also be helpful.

  • Thanks very much for this tip. Made life much easier! I can think of lots of useful other ISOs to boot using this method. I guess the menu.lst file can be modified to include as many items as you like.

  • Thank you very much!!!

  • Hi, I can’t get this to work. Sorry, not familiar with RMPrepUSB, but using XP/BartPE bootloader option, FAT32, and boot as HDD selected, I get “error grldr failed to copy to drive G: bad file name or number” (G: is my usb stick).

    Do I need to select some different options to get this to work?
