  1. And since we are completely off thread topic now, I can't think of anything better than loading CD's into this Lego PC We should start work on "Lego PE"
  2. Yes, it is possible with a few tweaks needed Read this thread Post by kyor with many follow-ups
  3. Yes, The startnet.cmd is the name of the file that autostarts (which you can customize) Also, the default behavior of WINPE 2.0 is to load a "WIM" file into RAM, so CD Swapping is allowed (by a human of course, WINPE 2.0 doesn't swap the CD's for you ).
  4. Link to Some Vista Documentation EDIT --> link is goofy, search for the "HorizontalResolution" <-- EDIT For example, you can specify the display resolution of Windows PE, where to save a log file, and other Windows PE-related settings. - <Display> <ColorDepth>32</ColorDepth> <HorizontalResolution>1280</HorizontalResolution> <VerticalResolution>1024</VerticalResolution> </Display> Drop that into the UNATTEND.XML that is used when WINPEINT runs
  5. So, this worked (having the i386 source on the RAMDrive). However, I did not have the option of a USB Key ... So, I created an ISO I added the logic to get the "WINSRC" directory on the RAMDrive to the batch file I have to create WinPE 2.0 Should be adble to modify the SET statements here to make it work for you SET ARCH=x86 SET UFDRIVE=G: SET WAIKTOOLS_DIR=C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools SET PETOOLS_DIR=%WAIKTOOLS_DIR%\PETools SET PEROOT_DIR=D:\WINPE2.0 SET PETEMP_DIR=%PEROOT_DIR%\winpe_%ARCH% SET WINSRC_DIR=D:\2003R2 SET STARTNET_FILE=D:\STARTNET.CMD IF EXIST %PETEMP_DIR% (RD /S /Q %PETEMP_DIR%) MD %PETEMP_DIR% MD %PETEMP_DIR%\ISO MD %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT COPY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\BOOTMGR" "%PETEMP_DIR%\ISO" COPY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\BOOTMGR.EFI" "%PETEMP_DIR%\ISO" COPY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\BOOT\ETFSBOOT.COM" "%PETEMP_DIR%" COPY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\BOOT\EFISYS.BIN" "%PETEMP_DIR%" XCOPY /CHERKY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\BOOT" "%PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\BOOT\" XCOPY /CHERKY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\EFI" "%PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\EFI\" MKDIR "%PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\SOURCES" COPY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\WINPE.WIM" "%PETEMP_DIR%\WINPE.WIM" COPY "%PETOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\WINPE.WIM" "%PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\SOURCES\BOOT.WIM" "%WAIKTOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\IMAGEX" /MOUNTRW %PETEMP_DIR%\WINPE.WIM 1 %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT "%PETOOLS_DIR%\PEIMG" /install=WinPE-HTA-Package %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS "%PETOOLS_DIR%\PEIMG" /install=WinPE-MDAC-Package %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS "%PETOOLS_DIR%\PEIMG" /install=WinPE-Scripting-Package %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS "%PETOOLS_DIR%\PEIMG" /install=WinPE-XML-Package %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS "%PETOOLS_DIR%\PEIMG" /LIST %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS COPY "%WAIKTOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\IMAGEX.EXE" %PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\ ECHO D|XCOPY /CHERKYS "%WAIKTOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\SERVICING" %PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\SERVICING COPY %STARTNET_FILE% %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 MD %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINSRC\I386 ECHO D|XCOPY /CHERKYS "%WINSRC_DIR%\I386\*.*" %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINSRC\I386 "%PETOOLS_DIR%\PEIMG" /PREP /F %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT\WINDOWS :UNMOUNT "%WAIKTOOLS_DIR%\%ARCH%\IMAGEX" /UNMOUNT %PETEMP_DIR%\MOUNT /COMMIT COPY %PETEMP_DIR%\WINPE.WIM %PETEMP_DIR%\ISO\SOURCES\BOOT.WIM :COPYUFD XCOPY /CHERKYS %PETEMP_DIR%\*.* %UFDRIVE% GOTO :END :MAKEISO OSCDIMG -N -M -O -B%PETEMP_DIR%\ETFSBOOT.COM %PETEMP_DIR%\ISO %PETEMP_DIR%\WINPE_%ARCH%.ISO :END Here would be the line(s) that I added to my custom STARTNET.CMD CD /D X:\WINSRC\i386 WINNT32.EXE /DUDISABLE /SX:\WINSRC\i386 /SYSPART:C /TEMPDRIVE:C /MAKELOCALSOURCE /UNATTEND:C:\UNATTEND.TXT
  6. What functionality are you trying to reproduce? Your post is fairly cryptic ... so, here is a go at the answer: For Compression, you could use .CAB Files (There is a support tools utility that will help with creating these called CABARC.EXE, and I think EXPAND.EXE is included in PE) For Sending Keystrokes, you could write a WSH Send Keys .VBS
  7. Did you try just creating another folder in your mount or mount\Windows folder before the Prepare your image step? This would compress it on the .WIM file ... it ceratinly would increase the boot time. I haven't seen if there is a maximum size for the RAM Drive used (I don't think that information is in TFM) I am actually going to try this today.
  8. Just a thought ... I use HP SCSI drivers integrated into PE Could it be you have a poor performing HD driver?

    Shrink PE2.0?

    From my reading in the WINPE.CHM peimg /prep You can also see what is/isn't going to be installed by using peimg /list pe-folder\mount\Windows
  10. I have built hundreds of new servers with the "quick" option ... no issues at all However, I did use the format command from PE ... not the diskpart option.
  11. Ugh ... just found out the solution ... don't run the step to remove the files in SERVERSP1-REMOVELIST.TXT supplied in the OPK ... I guess it removes something that the factory.exe uses. TO get this functionality I guess I'll have to use the 150MB version of PE instead of the 95MB version
  12. Anyone used this option in the WINBOM.INI (Restart = Poweroff)? WINBOM.INI is at the root of my PE CD [Factory] WinBOMType = WinPE Reseal = No [WinPE.Net] StartNet = No [WinPE] Quiet = No Restart = Poweroff With a Startnet that looks like this Factory -WinPE You would think the machine does it's thing then shut's down ... so I can box it up and ship it out. I would love to hear anyone else's experience with this ... or even alternatives ... I tried copying shutdown.exe to my PE i386\system32 folder, but that didn't work either.
  13. These settings in the answer file you supply tell windows (the version that is booting now off the hard drive at this point) in "text mode setup" to install "OEM" drivers ... makes you wonder where they got the name TXTSETUP.OEM I am doing this same thing ... Boot to PE ... Copying over ... running setup ... and I don't use DOSNET.INF
  14. Are these sections in you answer file now? [Unattended] UnattendMode=FullUnattended OemPreinstall=Yes [MassStorageDrivers] "Dell Controller"=OEM [OEMBootFiles] txtsetup.oem dell.sys dell.inf dell.cat With the [MassStorageDrivers] section matching what is in your Dell supplied textsetup.oem [OEMBootFiles] containing the names of driver file. These sections take the place of pressing F6 to add additional drivers during that portion of the setup ...
  15. Sounds like your on your way but as to a question you raised I did find some debugging options in PE 2005 help files
