Load Vista's PE from HDD

Recommended Posts

:D Windows Vista beta1 has been release for a long time. And, I had tried to

use its new WimPE from my Hdd. It is very fast than WinPE. For, it is using the

new Wim tech + bootmgr (1st coming from Vista, it is maybe a new loader for NT).

. Of course, we may cannot load it from traditional ntldr env. But we can * Crack * it. ;-(

:thumbup How2do

===============

. 1st, please get a copy of Vista beta1; copy these files to your c:\

\boot\boot.sdi

\sources\boot.wim

. 2nd, download ximage and avldr.exe from bellow:

. 3rd, put "WimPEsc_Build_env.zip\SysRoot\avldr.exe" to your c:\avldr.exe,

and then, edit your boot.ini, add

ramdisk(0)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows Honghorn Env" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /DETECTHAL /MININT /rdpath=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\boot.wim /RDSDIHDRPATH=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\boot.sdi /USENEWLOADER

C:\Avldr.exe="Launch Vista's BootMgr"

*note*

===========

* modify the 'timeout=0' to 'timeout=5', if you want to view the menu ;^)

* when you in the ntldr's menu, please select "Launch Vista's BootMgr" item

then, you will get a new menu poped by bootmgr. At this point, you should

select the 'Microsoft Windows Longhorn Env' item. Good Luck!

. 4th, using xImage to edit the default boot.wim:

A. mount the boot.wim to C:\Wim_Vol as Read&Write mode

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

ximage /mountrw c:\Wim_Vol c:\boot.wim 2

B. modify the boot options(important!!)

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

crate a new file named winpeshl.ini, with the following contents:

[LaunchApp]

AppPath = "cmd.exe"

save it, and copy it to c:\Wim_Vol\windows\system32

C. unmount and commit the changes

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

ximage /unmount /commit c:\Wim_Vol

OK, that's all. Of course, you can even using this in your CD/DVD media. ;-)

Here is my snapshoot for it:

It's great!!!!!!!!

a u chinese...i need talk to u~~

You can msn me: jsf_f22@msn.com ;-)

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

. I meet two problem:

A). I cannot modify the IP address to be static mode after I 'startnet' , even

use the tcpipcfg/penetcfg; But Original WinXP's PE can be done.

B). After the network is availble, the WimPE can ping others, but others cannot

ping this WimPE. What I'm sure is, this is not caused by the Windows Firewall.

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

Any suggestion?

I'm excited now, any idea how ?

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

Here is my solution for editting the Vista's media:

1. extract the DVD's boot sector(2kb) named 'Bootsect.cdr';

2. extract the folowing files to d:\workspace\

+/

|--- boot.ini

|--- bootmgr

|--- bootsect.bin ( using isobuster to get it)

|

+---/boot

| |--- boot.sdi

|

\---/sources

|--- boot.wim

3. mount the /sources/boot.wim and modify it as your purpose.

4. unmount and commit the changes of boot.wim

5. create a bootable iso file, using WinISO/UltraISO and set the

boot mode is non-emu using 'bootsect.bin';

6. try it on your VM software, e.g. Virtual PC, Bochs, Qeum or VMWare.

P.S. just you see, there is a boot.ini, we can put many other items in it.

such as Acronis's, cdshell, even a tradational WinPE loader: setupldr.bin.

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

I know a tool named 'Reatogo', it has a plug-in, which can extract your

drivers from your current Windows XP system. I mean, by using it, we can

modify the registry of boot.wim, put the proper files in it and get the device

work for us. ;^). But, I only have tested a network card, and get it working.

Wish the Wim OPK can help us out!

I want to do the same for Vista beta 2, but I don't see any way of getting any version of the Ximage utility to work on any of my Longhorn builds. I'm pretty much going to have to get beta 1 to extract a 5xxx built LonghornPE. Is there any way of getting the bootmgr to point to an already open LHPE? I believe the contents are in the open as soon as you boot the DVD and can be copied to a network share. Has anyone tried extracting LHPE from builds later than beta 1?
