Installation Option

Postby grisu70 » Mon Oct 01, 2012 5:02 am

Hi,
if i well remember with bootitNG it was possible to create a *.txt file with Name and registration key , and the Imagedisk automatically retrieved this info, during install. Is it possible to do the same with Boot it bare metal ?

when you run makedisk it asks for the name/key and applies it to the
bootitbm.ini file automatically for you.

TBU support, that is not the same thing. I would also appreciate the facility to have a text file import of reg details. It is a relative PITA to a) find my reg details and b) copy and paste 2 separate pieces of info each time I want to make a disk.

I vote for bringing back the text file import of reg details too.

One of the fields is your name, so shouldn't have to copy/paste that,
however you can leave it all blank if you're just upgrading. You can also
always create a custom bootitbm.ini and leave it there and choose that.

True about the name field, duh! That's what happens when one is sitting by a pool in Florida in the last few minutes of a holiday before setting off to the airport and heading home to London.

Personally, I still think the txt file approach is easier [wink].

That is a great piece of information.
I know you can use an ini when running makedisk.exe with both IFD versions but an ini doesn't work with IFL makedisk. Am I doing something wrong or is IFL an exception?

ifl is different, you'd have to have a custom .cfg file.
