I just encountered my only bug w/ the ISOLINUX+VESAMENU combination
from 3.52-pre5. Updated a *working* CD project w/ the new
ISOLINUX+VESAMENU combo just last week. Booting my preferred Linux
distro (Slax-6) from my custom CDs work perfectly, however when I
updated a CD project that includes BartPE/WinPE, BartPE fails to
boot w/ 'CDBoot can not boot CD: error 4" msg. For the record, the
stanza that fails:
MENU LABEL ^BartPE/WinPE
Boot the ultimate power tool for repairing Windows 2K/XP/2K3/Vista....
I realized almost immediately what was wrong and rolled back to the
modules from 3.50 and the boot error went away. In anticipation of
pos follow-up questions: did not forget the -boot-info-table
option; problem isn't media-related as I was testing under VMWare;
generating ISOs w/ UltraISO (reliably for *many* months now.)
This isn't an urgent issue for me, as I updated just for the
helluvit. Just trying to be a good citizen, as you asked others to
check out MENU HSHIFT/MARGIN/etc. Wouldn't have hurt to include a
couple lines about the behavior of these cmds, just to cut down on
some of the trial-and-error cycles, specifically the ones that position
in relative terms (like HSHIFT+VSHIFT.) Can kinda see the utility of
HSHIFT, but VSHIFT seems that it could really make a mess of things.
