Thanks for replying,

i have that partition, it's called System.

Do i need to copy the files to that partition?

If so, can you tell me what are the files?

Well it is a bit more complex than simply copying a few files.

The default (or "failover") EFI boot files are:

\efi\boot\bootia32.efi <- for 32 bit UEFI

\efi\boot\bootx64.efi <- for 64 bit UEFI

For windows you will need to get from the install .wim the file \source\bootmgrfw.efi (but then there are all the "localized" files or get it and all the other files from the installed system, usually C:\Windows\Boot\EFI\) and rename it to either bootia32.efi or bootx64.efi,

BUT a normally installed windows will have that file as:

\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi

then you will need to have (actually create) a (proper) BCD as \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD, *like*:

or:

http://www.hasper.info/repair-a-destroyed-windows-7-uefi-boot-sector/

And then you will need to add the boot entry to the NVRAM. How? :unsure:

But that's where the BCDboot tool comes handy:

I didn't know that we need to make lots of thing just to boot to UEFI :(

So, when i format with normal UEFI setup and install Windows on C: it will auto create everything like that?

Well, i will try does batch files with bcdedit too.

Thank you.

First of all, congratulations for this nice tool :D

 

I'm creating UEFI partitions with diskpart then format C: drive and then i use this tool to restore the WIM to C:.

After rebooting, the Windows doesn't start given boot error :(

If i create the same partitions, but next install with normal setup and then there format C:, after reboot it start Windows.

Does anyone know what can be? i know that GPT partitions doesn't have boot flag, so i don't know what is happening :(

Thank you

Could you give more detail about what error is shown.

 

You diskpart option are correct.

In WinNTSetup the boot partition should be auto selected to S: and all icons should be green.

I just to thank you again,

it works flawless with S: :D

 

I've created a Recovery Partition, Is there any way to hide before first Windows Startup?

If i use diskpart on WinPE it only hide on WinPE, but i want to hide in Real Windows.

thank you

Good to hear it works now.

 

I'm no expert about GPT, but maybe this diskpart options should hide the volume

rem telling Windows this volume is the WinRE location

set id="de94bba4-06d1-4d40-a16a-bfd50179d6ac"

 

 

if it still not helps, maybe also use this on your recovery volume

 

rem telling Windows to not assign a drive letter by default
gpt attributes=0x8000000000000000

Just want to thank you for all the help and such a great tool.

The code to hide is this: gpt attributes=0x8000000000000001

I'm now making Windows XP setup.

Does anyone what is the command to inject the MassStorage drivers from Driverspack?

I'm using this command to setup and it works well but without Sata drivers.

 

%usb%\WinntSetup\WinNTSetup_x86.exe NT5 -source:l:\ -syspart:C: -tempdrive:c: -setup -reboot

 

Thank you

The driverpacks need to decompressed to let's say D:\Drivers.

 

%usb%\WinntSetup\WinNTSetup_x86.exe NT5 -source:l:\ -syspart:C: -tempdrive:c: -setup -reboot -drivers:D:\Drivers

I will decompress the masstorage drivers to my USB and then use this command that i've tried but without decompressed drivers.

i will use this:

 

%usb%\WinntSetup\WinNTSetup_x86.exe NT5 -source:l:\ -syspart:C: -tempdrive:c: -setup -reboot -drivers:%usb%\Drivers

 

But it will inject the drivers in textmode to work after reboot to recognize sata?

 

thanks

Yes, the MSSTMake tool will scan the complete folder tree for Sata drivers and WinNTSetup will merge it's output into the new install.

 

There are only a few sata drivers that doesn't work with that method. I plan to address these in Version 4.

It just works perfect!!!

Man, congratulation for you software, it's amazing the things we can do with it :D

Now i've a WinPE with all windows version to install on any pc :D

Now i will try to find a way to have WinPE working in CSM and UEFI mode at the same time!!

 

Thank you once again for your amazing software.

You might like to also check out WinSetupFromUSB and Easy2Boot which can install 32-bit XP from an unmodified XP install ISO. It automatically adds the correct SRS Mass Storage Driver. No need to modify the ISO or add SRS drivers yourself.

Not as versatile as WinNTSetup, of course!

I'm using Easy2Boot, but because of UEFI, and Easy2Boot it's a little bit complicated when working with that, i'm making my WinPE that will install both, i hope.

But thanks for sharing

AFAIK  XP does not boot from UEFI systems. So why would you want to UEFI-boot to install XP?
