boot bart pe to ramdisk

Recommended Posts

sorry if this has been asked before, but the only stuff i can find on it is from the 911cd.net forums, which are down from that hack last week.

i am trying to boot bart PE to a ramdisk. the /inram switch does not accomplish what i need. i've found several things to try, but nothing much works. i have WinPE 2005, so i could theoretically use their ramdisk boot method, but i need to use the actual BartPE builder.

whenever i try to use the WinPE 2005 ramdisk method, i get a blue screen 0x0000007B error, inaccessible boot device. i assume i'm missing some mass storage controllers...can anyone point me in the right direction for this method, or suggest one of their own?

thanks,

Andrew

i figured it out. for anyone trying this, be sure to use the bootloader files from a PE 2005 CD, not from a bart build. they're not quite the same, apparently.

What are the licensing implications of using the PE 2005 bootloader files? I recently found out that my company isn't licensed for WinPE (3 weeks after I was told we were). My first thought is that using the PE 2005 bootlader = using PE 2005. If that's the case, it's not valid for those of us that aren't licensed for WinPE. Are there any other methods for booting BartPE from a ramdisk?

Everytime I buy an OEM 3 pack or 10 pack I get a Win PE disk.

Did I miss something in your posts !!!!

To avoid licensing issues you can use a windows 2003 R1 or R2 install CD as source.

If you don't have a win2003 available, then you can use a trial version available from the MS site, the trial is valid for 180 days (6 months) - after this period your build will still work, but you'd be breaking the trial license..

Thanks for the info. I don't pretend to understand any of Microsoft's licensing practices. Everytime I think I do, it changes.

In any case, I'm looking at AIO this morning. It looks pretty cool so far.

Nuno is saying if you use the trial of srv2k3 you'll get the same build as with the retail verson, and no need to download some warez AIO CD. Now that's pretty cool.
