Windows XP Pro SP3

Hi Yronith!

As far as I know, it can be installed on any device... If you have access to a linux machine, you can follow the steps described here: gujin boot/system loader: FAQ / HOWTO use Gujin

In any other case, you will have to Google for a solution.

Good luck!

I've managed to install Windows 7 using a boot manager floppy (you can use other media but you will need knowlege on how to make CD's or USB's booteable from a floppy image).

This method uses a linux boot manager called Gujin to "emulate" BIOS functions for booting media (any media).

Here are the steps I followed to build it:

- Download "Standard" version of Gujin from sourceforge (the latest is 2.4)
- Use your favourite decompressing software to unGzip/unTar (I recommend 7-zip, it's free)
- Inside the uncompressed folder, you will find a file named "full.img.gz", unGzip this file too.
- Now you will have a file named "floppy.144", this is the floppy image.
- Download a "Floppy Image Writer", for exmple RawWrite (or WinImage).
- Grab a floppy and write the file "floppy.144" to it.
- Put the Windows 7 Beta DVD in the drive.
- Boot your PC with the floppy, it will show a screen searching for boot records in your computer, follow the instructions about the video resolution.
- Once you are inside the GUI, there will be a list of supported booteable media, press the "F" key corresponding to the one that reads "no emul" or "no emulation" (it should be your DVD)
- Pay attention to the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", so do it!
- Yeah! Windows 7 installer is running!

Hope this helps you a bit with the beta testing...


PS: For instructions on how to make a booteable CD in Nero with a floppy image, read this. For Gujin documentation, troubleshooting and screenshots read this.
I tried this, but there is no option "no emul" or "no emulation" in my list. Any idea, please?

Windows 7

I have solution.

You need Vista install DVD. Boot Vista Installation, choose Language press next and than press "Repair my computer". On next window u will have few options, choose "command promt". Remove Vista DVD and insert Windows 7 Install DVD. Navigate to DVD (for example d: or e:, depends on your drives setting, than go to folder sources (type "cd sources"), and type "setup". Installation will start shortly. Now just follow instructions

Good luck

XP / Windows 7 Pro RTM

When I boot from the Gujin disk, right after press pause it turns my monitor off.

I think the problem lies with the UDF file system on the DVD. If I boot from a DOS floppy with CD-ROM support, I can navigate to my DVD drive, type dir and get a listing that only contains the Readme.txt located in the ISO portion of the DVD.

The DVD works fine on my moms computer so it must have something to do with the bios/drive not being able to read UDF file systems.

Win 7
did not try to boot with the feature your describe jet

Hi ten,
I did not try to boot with the feature g., but I do also think was you describe is the problem. Yes maybe is dos a possibility, but actually I dont know how to get dos(wich files do you copy). I did install win 7 on another computer and there it went fine no problem at all, the only thing is it dont delete/format the HD so my old xp files is still there togetter with win 7. Another problem I ran after the installation is that the screen solution is only 640x440 and no possibilities for more, so i guess for that you need a better "grafic card", but I do not know if you put a better grafic card if you need also a better transformator.

XP / Windows 7 Pro RTM

After posting, I did some messing around with Gujin in a virtual machine to see what's supposed to happen after my screen goes blank.
I deduced that F1 would boot drive 0 (the cd-rom) and sure enough it booted the UDF file system without issues.

Ifete, try making the Gujin disk. It worked for me. Hopefully it will work for you.
