Hi,

i am using BCD for my PXE Environment in order to have 2 multiboot windows pe 2.1 (32 and 64 bit).

Everything works besides that I dont know how I add localboot as default boot to the BCD...

When the timer runs down it boots the Windows PE...

my Configuration looks like this

bcdedit -store c:\BCD -enum all

Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier {bootmgr}
description W.H.A.T. BootManager
default {default}
displayorder {625f9b00-ec81-11dd-b5f9-0019b9464270}
{77c871b0-ebc3-11dd-b5f9-0019b9464270}
timeout 10

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {625f9b00-ec81-11dd-b5f9-0019b9464270}
device ramdisk=[boot]\Boot\boot32.wim,{ramdiskoptions}
description Windows PE 2.1 (x86)
osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\Boot\boot32.wim,{ramdiskoptions}
systemroot \Windows

winpe Yes

Setup Ramdisk Options
---------------------
identifier {ramdiskoptions}
description 32 Bit PE 2.1 OBEN, 64 Bit PE 2.1 UNTEN

ramdisksdipath \boot\boot.sdi

The question is how do I add an GENERIC localboot entry as default? I only have the choice to make a default vista/2008 boot or {ntdlr} for xp/2003

but we have all kinds of servers (2003 and 2008) so I need a generic localboot entry...

Anyone an idea?

Hi

Can you show me how to add two Ramdisk entries ?

I've tried the following under Vista SP1

bcdedit -store C:\TEMP\BCD -create {bootmgr} /d "Boot Manager"
bcdedit -store C:\TEMP\BCD -set {bootmgr} device boot
bcdedit -store C:\TEMP\BCD -create {ramdiskoptions} /d "WinPE1"
bcdedit -store C:\TEMP\BCD -create {ramdiskoptions} /d "WinPE2"

The last command gives an error. I cant add two ramdisk optitions

can you give me the commands to add two WinPE entires ?

perhaps you can send me your bcd file

Greetings
