    No I tried with the preview and now with 8.1 RTM There are some problems with explorer and the system account especially the taskbar that is locked. also, Ex7forW8 does not work in 8.1, by cons, StartIsBack+ works well but with the same concern for the taskbar. For information, we have nearly the same problem with explorer (a little better in PE) and the system account in the true Win8.1. To test it, Kill explorer and then launch PsExec.exe -i -d -s explorer.exe It could be a challenge for a guy like Tihiy or others Currently, with 8.1 RTM, it could work with BsExplorer as shell, or with ObjectDock and SIB+ But until there is no solution for Explorer, I do not see the interest compared to Win8PESE (with win8 RTM) or Win7PESE. I am at an impasse for now and so I have not looked further for other concerns.

    Since we are in the acknowledgments, BIG Thanks to The Great Lancelot, for all the help, support, knowledge and work done on PE for years. I added a control on the successful integration of drivers sought in setupapi.offline.log. In case of Failure, a warning message is displayed with the number of error and written to the log. If needed, there is allready a checkbox 'pause', to keep on screen the dism result. The Driver Integration script is on server.

    a return trip, without spam As I said above, it is really great to see wimlib, I take my hat and I would be happy to get rid of Waik/ADK Tools but unfortunately there are some limitations which prevent me to look at it more closely in this project. Chris
  5. ChrisR

    Win8PE SE

    Wimlib is an excelent initiative and a great challenge (ps: the link to http://sourceforge.net/projects/wimlib/ is enough ). with each windows version (Win7, 8, 8.1) there is some changes in the wim format. although I appreciate this initiative, I think that it is safer for the moment to use MS Waik/ADK Tools in this type of project. I use the great JFX's GetWaikTools to download only the needed tools (~6/10 Mb) and not the full Waik or ADK. http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=287.0 http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/156869-get-waik-tools-wo-downloading-the-huge-isos/ Also, from wimlib Documentation http://wimlib.sourceforge.net/ wimlib Limitations wimlib does not provide a clone of the PEImg tool, or the Dism functionality other than that already present in ImageX, that allows you to make certain Windows-specific modifications to a Windows PE image, such as adding a driver or Windows component. Such a tool could be implemented on top of wimlib. In win7(8)pese, I need some of these missing features, like /Add-Driver, /Add-Package, /Enable-Feature and others in addition to Mount, Capture, Unmount... So I can not, I do not take

    I have not had much feedback on DirMove errors, but this is not the first one to be safer, it is indeed perhaps good to use a distributable 3rd party (Yes), when I have free time, there is no emergency. I mostly know Olof Lagerkvist for its great imdisk : strarc does not seem to have any Move option but it could be done with Copy + if success cmd.exe,"/C rd /s /q Sourcedir" it is an option It can also be done on the principle of the Call,DirCopy that has been done previously I will remember for free time ps: Robocopy was the faster to write for me to do a simple test;) , gotenks98 found the reason before Yep, It is a good option to display a warning in the log, I like the idea :, but unfortunately with the dism.exe.mui resource file it is difficult to get the return code (by using tee.exe) for each driver (Error : 2 or in french Erreur: 2 or ...) dism.log is difficult to read, already for human eyes By cons it could be done more easily with setupapi.offline.log by searching "<<< [Exit status: FAILURE" I'll see, thanks
  7. ChrisR

    Win8PE SE

    Good that you found the reason, good research to see where the problem lies I was in the process of changing the script to use Robocopy sourcedir destdir /MOVE /MIR /FFT instead of the WB DirMove command. if you need, tell me, I can go on, it is maybe safer and we can have the log on screen About AV: I do not think necessarily has an x-ware or a false positive, but at a timeout issue which could be related. Good continuation
  8. ChrisR

    Win8PE SE

    Hi gotenks98, I do not really know, difficult to know why it blocks on a simple DirMove command, it runs on those just before, Maybe AV related! In this step, error in postconfig, you do not need to rebuild the whole project, in Final\PostConfig uses the "Create new Target Image and ISO" button. Maybe try without your AV or add an exception on your Win8pese base folder. Not great but I do not know how to help you.

    I tried to see but without success . The DWMGlass.dll (0.7) is well called with a message in x86: DWMGlass.dll may not be compatible with the version of windows... in x64 it gets better but without the Glass implementation. As it is not really important in a recovery environment, I'm not going further.

    Project Updated: Win8PE_SE_2013-02-11 There have been many updates, improvements since the initial release, It would take too long to explain all changes Thank you all for your feedback (mainly at TheOven.org , they were valuable and useful.

    Thank you very much Atari800XL It is a lot of time, sacrifice, freely given, So I really appreciate, thank you for those kind words. Indeed, JFX really deserves it, it is a real pleasure to see him around for all critical cases and more . About, msvbvm60.dll and asycfilt.dll required for XYPlorer, they will be present present if you use "Common files" plugin in Build folder.

    Automatically generated PStart.xml from the exe in subfolders, yes, it would be a good option indeed. Currently, this is not done, pstart.xml is only extracted (if not already present in source folder) from the script with only explorer++ entry inside, as example. It is unfortunately not generated. The xml configuration must be done manually before or after build, if writable media, as for StartMenu shortcuts (entered on the interface) before build. I have other subject but I keep it as a good additional option when I will have some timeee.

    It was a wink, but it is well, thanks Otherwise, In point 3.2 ... change VMWare Emulation setting to NAT rather than Auto it is no longer needed with the latest VMware Emulation script, Nat was defined as default If auto is selected now. And for PStart, following your feedback, I improved the script with a new option "Run from ISOboot", It uses here a Launcher to search PStart.exe. With this option PStart exe, xml and portable applications are on the outside of the ISO and you can easily add more apps on a USB key, disk (writable). The others options remain available for the non-ISO boot. Thank you for this good tuto, Chris

    A little feedback on your tuto Indeed, the main page of the project would be good. Win8PE SE HomePage No problem with Yahoouk, I am grateful for his Multi 7PEs (-> JFX's Multi7PE SE -> Win7PE_SE), but he has not really participated in Win8PE here;). You could add a few words about GetWaiktools, it allows the user to have a building "Out of the Box". Without the need to download windows ADK and being legal, ie without sharing the required files. It downloads the wim tools Once in only 6Mb. In Modifying the build, you can add a little thing on the driver integration, good to know, I believe. Driver integration for windows 8 under windows XP, was a pleasure, thanks Bill for the XP support! A useful trick to get a faster and more reliable building is to use Once, the Extract Wim Folders script, for the next build.. It Extracts boot.wim and install.wim to folders, there is no need then to mount, Unmount the 2 wim files at each build (2, 5 mn or more). For those who want to go further. In addition to portable apps with Pstart or others, it is possible and easy to share Apps scripts with other projects, like with Gena which has more than 100 apps script compatible. Up to you, for these additions, it is already very good I will put your link on the first post of Win8PESE Homepage and here. If you allow me.

    Good I just read your tutorial, very well , I will make you few returns, in my next post. PS: You do not have another little tutorial to write first, before publishing. I don't know, How to make a bootable Windows 7 USB drive for the UEFI... Like that, "Boot from Win8PE_SE ISO file" is the tutorial n° 100 and I win bottle of champagne or a USB key

    Win8PE SE

    The verification of windows 8 RTM was added at the beginning of building, with: A first control on the version of install.wim (/Info) in image configuration plugin. An additional check, a little later, has been added in Pre-Config script (Install.wim mounted) on the version of several files frequently modified by Windows update. The modified scripts are on the server.
  21. ChrisR

    Win8PE SE

    Did you have time to try the ISO boot with the CDDrive_X_Y.script corrected. I would look at your tutorial, but it's late here now zzzz:::::: Here a batch that I use _mksiofs_ISOBoot.cmd for testing easily the ISO Boot in VMware by changing the ISO folder. ::Set ISODir= Set ISODir=ISODir ::Set ISODir=IMAGE\WINPE MakeNewISO_for_ISOBootTest.7z To put in ISO folder next to the ISO and Win8PESE.ini. Feel free to modify it or to improve it for me
  22. ChrisR

    Win8PE SE

    I see what you mean with the correction of CDDrive_X_Y.script, it should already be better. PStart is one of the first plugin I've written. It would need a refresh for the ISO Boot. Currently, It is not intended for the ISO boot but it works well with both CopyToUSB plugin in Write media folder. With the folder ISO\WIM directly copied on USB key, disk. [boot] [efi] (x64] [Programs] [sources] |-- boot.wim BOOTMGR CdUsb.y menu.lst (title Win8PESE | chainloader /BOOTMGR) In this case PStart.xml can be created with relative links before building in Source folder (button) or after, in programs folder if writable media. For ISO Boot, I write it in my todo, A small PStartLauncher should do the trick. With a research of PStart.exe at the root (or path: root - .\pstart - .\programs) of a ready drive. Wimb does a trick like this I believe in MakePE3. ps: too bad that he does not make an evolution for Win7 SP1,but I understand that he may prefer W7 VHD compact. Edit: I have an old program cdusb.exe (it search for CdUsb.Y file for remount the USB/CD drive on Y:). With some small editing and an improvement of PStart plugin, it should do the trick. I look next week if I have some time.

    Yep, TBlauncher from Terabyte Unlimited available in both architecture. An alternative to the very good Pstart, I have not tested. However no problem here for 32 bits Pstart in Win8(7)PESE with the great JFX's Wow64 plugin. It provides support for running 32bit programs in a 64bit environment.
  24. ChrisR

    Win8PE SE

    Oups I better understand your concerns. Thank you for having insisted on MountPEmedia There has been a missed on CDDrive_X_Y.script during the recent synchronization between Win7PESE and WIN8PESE. This shall be corrected (MountPEmedia sought the Win7PESE.ini file instead of Win8...) CdDrive - X: - Y: v16 is on server to put on .\Projects\Win8PESE\Build folder or "Update Win8PE SE (Exact and Secure)"

    Salut Ludo, Ca fait plaisir de te voir, le temps passent mais les passions, passe temps ne se perdent pas. Je suis sûr que ton ami Kullenen_Ask a déjà son Win8PE multimedia. Mais faute de moteur qui lui convienne, il le construit manuellement, dommage pour le partage. Avec JFX, Lancelot, Galapo nous avons une équipe gagnante pour construire cette base. J'ai, Nous avons passé beaucoup de temps ce mois sur Win8PE et La base devient de plus en plus stable de jour en jour. Je ne trouverais pas toujours autant de temps pour la suite. Ensuite, il n'y a rien d'urgent pour ajouter de nouveaux composants (IE10, Audio ...) Sachant que beaucoup de script Win7PeSe doivent être compatible (VC++, paint, Calc, Photo Viewer...) N'hésite pas, a nous rejoindre sur TheOven.org pour partager. PS: Nothing secret, just a small French exchange @Steve I answer you soon about pstart in ISO boot.
