Make_PE3 Program to Create Portable Windows 7 PE

Recommended Posts

Thanks, I see the setup.bmp and missed viewing that one on X:. I originally looked in the \PE3_mod and did not find an image that matches the setup.bmp. I still don't know how this file ends up in x.\windows\system32

 

Do you happen to know?

setup.bmp is present in boot.wim that is used as source in Make_PE3

Use 7-zip to look in boot.wim e.g. win7pe_x86\boot.wim\2\Windows\System32\setup.bmp

 

It can be modified by adding your setup.bmp to folder PE3_mod\PE3_add\x86\Windows\System32

I have a Desktop (create shortcut).DeskLink in P:\Make_PE3\PE3_mod\PE3_add\x86\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo, but it does not show up on the context menu, so I can't create shortcuts on the desktop via SendTo. Is this supposed to be supported with PE?

 

All other files I have there show up fine in the context menu. Any idea what might keep the Desktop(shortcuts) from appearing?

 

I saw this, but I don't know if this relates to Make_Pe3 too.

 

Edit: I found it - sendmail.dll is missing in \system32

Can anyone tell me how startnet.cmd is auto started during the PE Boot?

 

startnet.cmd is launched silently by PEShell

 

See Boot Sequence description in Customize_Info.txt in PE3_mod folder

 

Good find - sendmail.dll will be added to the list

Hello,

I have some questions about the customization with Make_PE3.

1) How to change the wallpaper ?
    I see a lot of questions about it but nothing really work
    
    If I change in the file : Make_PE3\PE3_mod\PE3_reg\x86\PE3-USER.reg line 88
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PE3-USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\General]
    "WallpaperSource"="X:\\windows\\system32\\winpe.bmp"
    by
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\PE3-USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\General]
    "WallpaperSource"="X:\\windows\\system32\\MYwinpe.bmp"

    And I place "MYwinpe.bmp" in the folder > Make_PE3\PE3_mod\PE3_add\Common\Windows\System32\
        
    = Doesn't work, I have a instead the default Win 7 wallpaper.
    but in the Desktop Manager MYwinpe.bmp is set as my default wallpaper ??? :crazy:
    
    If I resize the winpe.bmp 1400x900 to 1280x1024
    = Same as above.
    
    The only way I find to change it's replace winpe.bmp by another BMP file with the exact same size.
    
    Where I'm doing something wrong ?
    
2) I would like to change the theme to Windows Classic but I can't find any tutorial about how to do it. :no:

That all for now !! I have many more questions about customization :w00t:

Thanks

Nexus :dubbio:

Hi Nexus,

 

The wallpaper is set by a program, properly in startnet.cmd or any other batch file launched on PE start.

Themes are enabled by a tool call UX.exe, if you delete it the PE should stick with classic theme.

Hi JFX !!

 

Thank's.

 

Delete UX.exe works well but that not a pretty way to do, isn't it ? :dubbio:

 

Or maybe that the only way  ? :blink:

 

Anyway I will use it. :rolleyes:

 

For the background I will try to remember my DOS and use the startnet.cmd. That not going to be easy, last time I used frequently DOS was on my Amiga 4030 :D

 

Now I have to find how change the windows background color, set small icons on the menu etc etc .... :crazy:

 

Best Regards

 

Nexus

Well there's something I do not understand.

 

Can I add or change some registry instructions on file like PE3-USER.reg or Add a .reg file ?? :blink:

 

I ask because each time I make small change who have nothing to do with the wallpaper "winpe.bmp" this one is replace by the win7 default ??

 

And my changes are not add of course !! :no:

 

I began to be a little lost with Make_PE3 :crazy:

Ok !! I'm not lost anymore !! :w00t:

 

Make_PE3_48.exe is buggy !! When the 7pe_x86.iso is build the file startnet.cmd is sometime corrupted. :blink:

If you like to create a customized winpe, Win7PE SE is much easier to configure.

Is not easy or not it's just have the same result with the same source. If it's never twice the same result it's complicate to code something for.

 

I know Win7PE SE and it's look like a gaz factory for me :D

Hi I'm really interested to make a USB bootable on all systems especially the ones that can only run on USB drives configured for x64 or UEFI 

 

for now IM only using the Microsoft windows setup (x86) wim for running a script that uses imagex

on those systems (the USB drive isn't recognized after boot, ..before Setup)

 

My first question is: must I have to acquire a x64 boot wim for the process

And if don't:

What files do I need to include on the USB root, are they the ones found in "C:\Make_PE3\win7pe_x86\*" ?

 

Or if I do need to build "C:\Make_PE3\win7pe_amd64\*"  .. How do I populate it with needed files

 

So Im really looking for hints on how to make this all work

 

TIA

Hi I'm really interested to make a USB bootable on all systems especially the ones that can only run on USB drives configured for x64 or UEFI 
 

 

For this purpose you should not use Make_PE3

 

You should first make Win8.1SE x64 boot.wim and then use UEFI_MULTI.exe to make USB-drive booting with that boot.wim

 

Procedure Info UEFI_MULTI - http://reboot.pro/topic/18182-uefi-multi-make-multi-boot-usb-drive/#entry168079

 

1. Download Win 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation x64 ISO from - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-8-1-enterprise

2. Then make Win8.1SE x64 boot.wim - http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/170546-win81se/

3. Use UFD_FORMAT.exe and UEFI_MULTI.exe to make USB-stick bootable with x64 boot.wim
