    I can not write the image win10 nor win7. Although earlier on the same computer recorded the same images.

    • It’s Microsoft’s default files and locations, not mine.
      That source uses heavily modified/customized boot structure which cannot be easily supported in multiboot, plus that structure can change at any moment wasting all eventual efforts to support it.

  2. Sir
    I want to rename the winsetup folder to the custom folder ….

    For this I have changed the path of Windows ISO through winpeshl.ini

    And the path of boot.Wim is changed through the change in the bcd file.

    But the path of imdisk is not changing.

    I think this is possible after the change to winpresetup.

    Sir please guide me how i can do this?

  3. Is this software still being update?

    If so, can MS-DOS 6.22, Windows 3.1 Windows 95 And Windows 98 Second Edition be added to the next update?

    • It is, when needed and when possible.
      Have you tried adding these as Linux/Other ISO?
      If that doesn’t work, I doubt these will be prioritized and included in next work.
      You can also get you going by googling grub4dos + windows 3.1/95/98. Think there were some caveats but don’t recall the details.
