Yes, your shortcuts issue is indeed related to your USB drive not automatically assigned at startup and so not remounted on drive Y:

In this case, you should have a "Win8.1SE warning" icon on desktop, shortcut to MountPEMedia.log

 

I do not know for these USB stick/disk not mounted at startup, it has always works well here but you're not the only one with this concern, it must related on your hardware.

A solution is to activate the checkbox "Run ALL programs from RAM (bbot.wim)" in "build\CdDrive - X: - Y:"

You will not have the concern with your USB drive not mounted at startup and shortcuts will be OK.

But with this option, you can not use the Hiren's plugin, it is not planned to run from inside boot.wim.

I do not have better.

One last question I wanted to ask? Does the hyper-visor you use matter with this? I have been using Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac. I have not tested the ISO on a bare metal machine yet, only in virtual machines.

Hello 'ChrisR' .............................

 

First tons of thanks for 'Win8.1SE' .

 

I found a DVD from Microsoft which contains 'install.esd' file. And I am unable to use 'Win8.1SE' with my

Win 8.1 ISO (install.esd)  becasue 'Win8.1SE' is currently not supporting 'install.esd' files. I want to create both 'Win8.1UpdateSE x64 boot.wim' and 'Win8.1_x64.iso' by using your 'Win8.1SE'. I do not want to convert 'install.esd' to 'install.wim' because of low storage problem.  Current 'WinNTSetup 3.6.1' also support 'install.esd' files. so please provide support of 'install.esd' files in the next release of 'Win8.1SE'.

 

I highly need standalone 'Win8.1UpdateSE_x64_boot.wim' file. If you don't have any problem then please share a Resumable Download link of standalone 'Win8.1UpdateSE_x64_boot.wim' file with me. So that I can use both 'Win8.1UpdateSE_x64_boot.wim' and 'Easy2Boot' together in my USB Drive.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If possible then please add support of 'install.esd' in next version of 'Win8.1SE'

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Thanks in Advance...............

Hello 'ChrisR'

 

Please add a script for 'cfadisk' windows disk driver in next release of 'Win8.1SE' so that we can access both 'Partition 1' and 'Partition 2' of 'Removable USB Drive within from running 'Win8.1SE_x65_boot.wim'.

 

If you like then you can also add 'Fab's AutoBackup 5 Pro script V4' script within 'Win8.1SE'.

 


 

 

Thanks in Advance

devdevadev, please stop polluting this and other topics on every forum you see.

Currently most people taking summer break or watching football.
As you seem to have way much time, why not try to do something on your own?

 

As for your questions:

- esd files are not supported, so get a normal sources with install.wim or learn how to convert esd to wim.
- reconsider why you need to have two partitions available at the same time, or try karyonix diskmod

Hello 'JFX' Sir,

 

First thanks for your precious reply...........

 

1-  Actually I know how to convert '.install.esd' to 'install.wim' . I also know that there are lots of tutorial in the Internet for the same. But I still want 'install.esd' support in 'Win8.1SE' because I always download 'ESD based ISO's' due to it's compression size.

If I convert 'install.esd' files to 'install.wim', then i always have to face shortage of storage problem.

Currently most of the USB booting tool support 'install.esd'. It's why I request to add support of 'install.esd' in 'Win8.1SE'...

 

2-  Actually I do not want two partitions available at the same time, But I want 'Partition 2' of 'Removable USB Drive' which normally become 'Invisible to Windows'. I want to access 'Partition 2' because I always put my all '.imgPTN files, ISOs, all Important software and tool and Boot files' within hidden 'Partition 2'. I do not want to put any software/Payload file within 'Partition 1'. I want to use 'Parition 1' only for DATA Storage purpose. Sometime I use 'Partition 1' for copying Important files and Data form corrupted Windows PC during emergency.

                 I want to use 'WinNTSetup_x64.exe' in order to mount 'Win_7/8/8.1_Inst.imgPTNLBAa' (within from \_ISO\WIN folder of Partition 2) in ImDisk Virtual Drive. 

 

Actually I want optimum utilization of each and every Tools and Resources at low cost and quick time.............

 

Thanks for Everything...............

:hello: Hello Everyone  :hello: 
 Specially 'ChrisR', 'JFX' & 'wimb'................................
 
AFAIK,
 
For UEFI + BIOS booting from USB then Windows 8.1 x64 need to be used as Source.
There are now three Universal solutions for booting from USB on UEFI + BIOS computers:
- Win8.1SE x64 boot.wim of size 400 MB booting from RAMDISK
- Portable W864USP1.vhd of size 3.5 GB booting as FILEDISK
- Full Windows 8.1 Pro installed in 15 GB VHD or any Windows 8.1 on USB SYSTEM partition of size 50 GB
 
According to 'wimb' - Windows 8 VHD files make use of Microsoft VHD driver which allows in Boot Manager Menu to boot VHD as FILEDISK. Booting VHD files from Grub4dos Menu as FILEDISK or as RAMDISK requires to Install in Source VHD either FiraDisk Or WinVBlock driver. Additinally Installed Programs and Drivers and Settings are remembered in FILEDISK just like in normal Windows OS. Loading the VHD into RAMDISK is much faster when the VHD file is located on the internal NTFS harddisk drive.
 
1- FiraDisk Or WinVBlock driver can be Installed in Source for booting Win 8 VHD from RAMDISK using Grub4dos Menu
 
2- Grub4dos Menu for booting Win8 VHD as FILEDISK or as RAMDISK is made when FiraDisk or WinVBlock driver is found in Win8 Source.
 
 
So, Finally I want to ask some questions which are as follows-
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is 'FiraDisk Or WinVBlock driver' already installed in the Source of 'Win8.1SE_x64_ _boot.wim' ?
 
Does 'Win8.1SE' already contains a script for installing 'FiraDisk Or WinVBlock driver' into  Source of 'Win8.1SE x64 boot.wim' ?
 
Is it possible to make a Grub4dos Menu for booting 'Win8.1SE x64 boot.wim' as FILEDISK or as RAMDISK ?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Actually I want to use 'Win8.1SE x64 boot.wim' in the 'Easy2boot' as a Payload file.
 
Is it possible ?
 
 
Thanks in Advance.......

Actually, you want someone else to create that, and you hope to obtain this by nagging half the internet, taking bits a pieces that you don't fully understand out of context, resubmitting them together with fragments of often crazy ideas in the vain hope that someone will take the time to make a mix of all (often different/incompatible) booting methods/approaches known to mankind into your dream of a Ultimate-Super-Smart-Secret 'Removable' USB Drive with Mega-Booting:

http://reboot.pro/topic/19868-ultimate-super-smart-secret-removable-usb-drive-with-mega-booting/

 

Is it possible ?

Yes.

http://homepage.ntlworld.com./jonathan.deboynepollard/FGA/questions-with-yes-or-no-answers.html

Is it probable that it will happen (or that it will happen soon) if you insist enough? :unsure:

No. :no:

You are welcome. :)

Crossposted to theoven.org forums since I'm not sure if different users might visit one or the other forum:

 

Hi All!

Running latest version of Win8.1 SE and have integrated the Clearlock script. (Can't link since I'm new here!)

I know the script looks to be abandoned for quite awhile now but thought I'd try it out anyway since I really need this type of functionality and can't seem to find anything else.

The script runs fine with no errors generated in the log and the .exe and .ini files are placed in System32 by the script as they should be. The problem I'm seeing is when the PE is booting and it gets to the Win8 Administrator "Welcome" screen it will sit and spin the dots on that screen for a good 5 mins when Clearlock is enabled for the build. It WILL eventually present the Clearlock lock screen, accept the password and boot into the OS. If Clearlock is NOT enabled for the build, the Administrator "Welcome" screen shows for about 5 secs and then it boots into the OS fine.

The extra weird thing is that after the long delay and once in the OS, I can find the clearlock.exe file and launch it and the clearlock screen comes up immediately, no issues.

I thought about checking Windows log files to see if anything stood out but it seems the Event Viewer .msc is not included in the build. :)

Any thoughts on this?

 

Is there anyone who would be willing to add this script to their build and confirm this behavior?

Thanks!
Mike
