  1. has someone done similar thing without modification to of wim file?
  2. it should work... I do not know how does the Windows server 2k8 boot wim is built, it could be possible that it uses different PE than PE 3.x which is on win7. Is it x64 bit system? If all fails you can try using same boot.wim from windows 7 x32 install to deploy Windows server 2008 x32/64, it might work as a workaround. I do not have any version of Windows server 2k8 at the moment, but if you upload boot.wim somewhere, I could take a look.
  3. Making boot.wim Read Only in virtual XP machine at he end did the trick... I'm adding APPENDIX 1
  4. jaclaz! Help! 1) After doing some more tests I've noticed that after installing Windows for the first time from the USB boot time of installation gets much slower than the first time.) I believe that is because Windows PE makes changes to the registry of the image instead in the memory while loading drivers (unlike DVD version, DVD is Read Only). 2)Disk gets fragmented. How to prevent it? I'm testing for the solution. Making boot.wim Read Only in virtual XP machine at he end could do the trick... Is that true? Do you know the answer?
  5. Well when you put it that way.... yes, you are probably right. Let people discover things by them selves, things are out there, and they might stumble on some interesting topics in the process. I was thinking (I should stop doing that...) boot.wim seems to be windows OS. Or some small version of it. It should be possible to preinstall user software on it. Hence it could be possible to reprogram install procedure and customize it according to ones needs. Install other software maybe during OS install with selection screen in the beginning... Hm ... I see I'll be making an other tutorial and an
  6. jaclaz! Thank you for your rich reply! Yust the kind of mean i wanted to provoke with my post! I've been reading your posts for a while now, and liked them. About the reasons to use cfadisk.sys on XP and dummydisk.sys: I did not know they exist until two days ago, i just wanted to try them both. Second one was simpler to install in the image, because it does not care about the device name at all and works with all of them. About using GRUB or GRUB2: One can use either, but if you want NTFS, GRUB2 is the choice. About nativeex.boot...x/WimCaptEx.htm and reboot.pro/9765/: Great! Beautiful! Ab
  7. Have 16 GB USB stick, need all sort of systems to boot from it. One of them is Windows 7 installation with WIM larger than 6 GB hence i need NTFS to put it on (or simply because I cann). First partition of USB is not an option for number of reasons (I do not want it to be) . Not using ISO because there is probably not enough RAM on host machine to extract it. I've made it work after some exploration. Used software: Windows 7 ultimate 64bit desktop computer with WAIK and VmWare 7.1 Workstation installed Plop Boot Manager (to boot virtual machine from USB) Virtual machine with Windows Xp 32 bi
  8. ... and it's true, it can not be integrated in xp as if slipstreamed, but it has to be installed silently as nlite plugin at T13 phase of windows installation. You can allso use this plugin to install .net 3.5 with updates on to xp after windows was installed, just run exe. And, this is 32 bit plugin, not x64, and not vista, but xp only.
  9. i've compiled .net framework 1.1-3.5 nlite plugin with most updates integrated download it from http://ibach.quotaless.com and integrate with nlite.
  10. what i did? just old net framework 2.0 trick and it works.
