Easy2Boot v1.20 now available

v1.20 is now available, changes are:
  1. Now should work with Win8.1 Retail install ISOs which use \sources\install.esd instead of install.wim
  2. Option to erase partition 4 if detected on the E2B drive when booting (use with care!)
  3. 64-bit XP install ISOs will now not use DPMS2 (which is 32-bit only) if there is '64' in the ISO name - so you can now press F6 and install the firadisk and winvblock 64-bit drivers. 
  4. 3rd level folders now removed except for a single MNU folder - e.g. \_ISO\MAINMENU\MNU and Sample .mnu files changed to use \_ISO\xxx\MNU folders.
  5. 8.1 Enterprise 90-day Eval product key added so you can install from the free M$ downloadable ISOs. 
  6. Windows Vista+ ISOs are now only loaded using ImDisk and not Firadisk - the Firadisk drivers are no longer used and have been removed (but still used for XP using an F6 floppy image).
  7. Memtest86-5.0.0 ISO added to Utilities - Memory Test menu

Note: You can still use any name for the 3rd level folders instead of MNU, and you can overwrite your E2B drive with v1.20 and it will still work.

Please let me know if there are any problems with this new version (and any successes you have too!)
