  1. Thanks. I tested it and it works fine. Can you add a warning or error if the wofadk services is not running ?
  2. @JFX I see that you have updated WofCompress as well - http://jfx.cwcodes.net/ What are the new changes ? Were you able to fix the hardlinks and the exclusion list issues ?
  3. @JFX I tried your tool WofCompress. I got a corrupted winload.exe error when i tried booting from the compressed VHD. Maybe your program does not handle filters of type *winload.*. *winresume.* ? Also the uncompress option does not work. I wanted to uncompress and compress again by excluding winload.exe explicitly
  4. @JFX, A quick question, why doesn't WimBootCompress.ini include \Boot\* and \bootmgr ? Shouldn't they be skipped from compression ?
  5. Thanks JFX, I will try it out this weekend. Do you mind sharing the source of WofRecompress? Maybe you can commit the code on Github ?
  6. Thanks. Does this skip the files in Windows\System32\WimBootCompress.ini ?
  7. Is there a way to manually re-compact? One possible option is to capture the contents of the VHD to a wim and reapply with the compact option,but this is too much hassle. I am looking for a way manually re compact either a live OS or an offline OS ( mounted VHD ).
  8. Thanks. The wofadk is not a problem. I rechecked. After applying in compact mode, I am booting Windows 7 from a VHD ( native VHD boot). Do the new files added here get automatically compacted ? Which process is responsible for that and how does it know which compression algorithm to use ? Also how is that NTFS compression is still able reduce disk space used in-spite of using compact:LZX mode ?
  9. Is there any setting to disable this block ? I am trying to apply using compact:LZX mode and I know the space is sufficient on the VHD. For now I have worked around this limitation by creating a larger VHD and then later shrinking and resizing it. Additionally, when I use compact:LZX mode to install Windows 7 to a VHD, I need to manually install wofadk.sys and the necessary registry settings. Is there any option in WInNTSetup to install wofadk.sys after applying the wim image if the mode is Compact ?
  10. JFX, Thanks for this wonderful tool. Is there is a checkbox in the GUI for forceunsigned and testsigning ? ( I cant seem to find it ) Or is it only a command line option ? Any plans of making the code open source and maybe hosting it on github ? I would love to contribute to this project.
  11. Please update the guide with support for vista and 7,
  12. VMLite (a virtualization technology based on VirtualBox ) can run XP Mode in Windows even if your processor is not capable of Hardware Virtualization. Its a tweaked version of VirtualBox and can run XP Mode even in Windows Vista.

  14. Thanks. I found what I wanted. I will test it and post my feedback here.
  15. I want to avoid clicking on Load Driver(and load the driver from a secondary medium) in the Disk Partitioning part of the Vista Setup. The following Links contain the almost all the Mass Storage drivers. http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/windows...ss-storage/9.01 http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?pid=32980 I want add one of these or both of these drivers to my Vista Setup's boot.wim This will make sure that the Vista Setup will detect and recognize any kind SATA/RAID hard disk during installation. Can anybody please help me?
