Win7PE source!


Only AIK 3 is needed:
http://www.microsoft...11-39C26D3B3B34
Download and mount the ISO with a mounting tool like Daemon Tools or MagicDisc for example.

Note: This aik needs to be installed:
http://www.microsoft...A5-5B50C657DE08
Can also be used as source!


And the small 10MB project:
http://al-jo.99k.org/wbpe3waik.7z
Or here:
http://al-jo.zxq.net/wbpe3waik.7z
Unzip, start Winbuilder.exe, point to the mounted AIK3 iso and click on the big blue “play”.

It is based on the Vistape project by Nightman, JonF and many other script developers.
Optimized and updated with latest Runscanner25v42 and Common_Capi v25rev61.

Note: No Internet included!
512MB Ram is enough on the running machine!

Building time with no app scripts: ~ 2 minutes.
Building time with all 20 app scripts: ~ 5 minutes.
Booting (UFD) time with 20 apps: ~ 3 minutes

It’s made as small as possible but have some system app scripts included and checked by default:
FreeCommander 2009.02b
CloneDisk 1.8.3
USBDeview 1.83
Runscanner25v42
MemTest4
Produkey1.46

Result is a 95MB bootable ISO.

With optional app scripts included:
Avira Virus scanner. Will add about 60MB to the build.
EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition 7.0.1.0 = 12MB
CPUID-HardwareMonitor 1.17
Recuva 1.39
AgentRansack 762
NTPWEdit 0.3
Sala-PasswordRenew 1.1beta
FastStoneViewer 4.3
Autoruns 10.06
ProduKey 1.46
HDDScan (latest)
Topalas Sysinfo (latest)

Result is a 200MB bootable ISO

Runing a Universal windows xp VHD from a usb stick

Runing a Universal windows xp VHD from a usb  stick



Just because I guess I'm not the only one that burned on it many hours I am happy to share all what I could finally understand and make it works for me...



From my experience I can say the most comfortable system for pc repairs/virus cleaning/portable os for internet/multimedia/mail/Quick work with files... is this xp.vhd .
* its small (lass than 1 gb)
* its boot very fast (11 sec with ewf - 19 sec without ewf)
* full multimedia support so you can Immediately play your media
* full printing support
* your anti virus always up to date (no need wait for updates like in pe builds )
* your anti virus real time protection work (Unlike pe builds)
* easy to install driver from driverforce or driver geek including all type of drivers (better than pe builds)
* with ewf you are protected - only when you need to update or install something you commit write to disk and return to ewf protection
* all portable apps are works (i has 8gb collection i made with Thinstall )



Of course our cool developers deserve thanks for there wonderful tools and deep explanations they give here all the time. :thumbup: Just a few steps I incorporated different guides to get the desired result
I can say I tried all the "usb xp" guides we have here in forum,I spent many hours on this :wodoo:

My conclusion until last week was the only way that really works is to go with wimb's Tool, step by step and create xp_ram.img and update it on many computers

But still it did not satisfy me because of the prominent faults
- You can not run on computers with little memory
- takes too much time on computers with slow usb boot
- I wanted to boot immediately to work rather than to dwell with the learning process, etc ...

Then thankfully I read here a few things and added a few things in my mind
Anyone who wants can try the great success: real universal xp.vhd without learning process needed work from winvblock file disk & g4d ram disk from usb without tne BSOD 0x7B i tried on 9 pc's only i get error But I fixed that too (see Part 13) Since I try it on every computer that I just met all work well!!

my steeps are:

1. make file cald xp.vhd on your local drive(fixed, not dynamic!) [i prefer .vhd instead of img for use with virtual pc if i want later ] {I disabled free space checking with nlite so i use 1gb .vhd}

2. make xpsp3.iso with full "chipset"+"mass storage"+"cpu" drivers integrate and Reduced size by removing Unnecessary components (my .iso is 410mb)

3. run this setup command
title start setup xp on img
map --mem /winvblock.ima (fd1)
map --mem (md)0x6000+800 (fd0)
map /xp.vhd (hd0)
map --mem /IMAGES/xpsp3.iso (0xff)
map --hook
dd if=(fd1) of=(fd0) count=1
chainloader (0xff)



title continue setup xp on img
map --mem /winvblock.ima (fd1)
map --mem (md)0x6000+800 (fd0)
map /xp.vhd (hd0)
map --mem /IMAGES/xpsp3.iso (0xff)
map --hook
dd if=(fd1) of=(fd0) count=1
root (hd0,0)
chainloader /ntldr


4. boot from the vhd from your local disk with this command

title Boot XP from image file 
map /xp.vhd (hd0)
map --rd-size=2048
map --mem (rd)+4 (0x55)
map --hook
write (0x55) #GRUB4DOS\x00v=1\x00xp.vhd\x000x80\x00
root (hd0,0)
chainloader /ntldr


5. connect your usb disk to the pc for the system to recognize it ..reboot when steel connect

6. use wim'b IMG_XP package to Reduced windows size & use all wimb's registry_tweaks (no need to create .img but use the tweaks.reg...) do not install firadisk! winvblock already installed!

7. open device manager and change all "ide&usb" drivers to "standard..." and computer to "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface"... reboot pc...

8. Optional, use "XPlite Professional 1.9" to Reduce your windows (Very significantly)

9. download UsbBootWatcher.zip from here:
Also download usb_xp_init.cmd from here:
Unzip UsbBootWatcher.zip and put usb_xp_init.cmd into the folder we have just extracted UsbBootWatcher. The directory structure should look like this:
amd64 - directory
x86 - directory

10. Boot into other Windows so you can edit your xp.vhd windows (you can mount the xp.vhd as local drive from windows7/Win7PE disk mangment or boot it on virtual pc)

11. Run usb_xp_init.cmd and type the path of system32 directory of the mounted vhd. (for examle D:\Windows\system32)
When it completed unmount the vhd

12. now you be able to boot this xp.vhd from your usb drive on different machines Without any additional actions (At least I can)

13. If you still encounter screen of death (happened to me once of 9 computers) Copy the .vhd file to the local drive and run it from there (or add --mem to map entry and run from ram disk)
after you boot to desktop wait for system finish the automatic drivers instantiation, then copy the vhd back to usb (or use IMG_XP_Update.exe to update your .vhd that placed on your usb) now its can safely boot from it

14. Optional, use ewfmgr To protect your disk and to improve performance Especially if it is a flash drive that his writing is very slow
how to install ewfmgr?

There may be other ways, my way is to boot the system with ewfmgr.iso (thanks to etboot project) its works in xp rc environment . (in our case we can boot it from virtualpc or from g4d + map vhd ) I brought up for you
select 1 to install ewf
select drive {c:}
select win folder {windows}
restart
after we boot into windows run cmd >
ewfmgr c:\ -enable = protection on
ewfmgr c:\ -disable = protection off
ewfmgr /all = all comand line




15. enjoy!

mixing Win PE 3 and Linux.

The last days I enjoyed myself by

mixing Win PE 3 and Linux

.
I wanted to use these o/s simultaneously,so this is the result.

-------------------------------
1) Get the ISO image file of WInPE 3.0 and open it
2) On the root of the ISO image put these file and folders :
a) Colinux
a1) Colinux-0.7.8 from here :

http://www.fileserve.com/file/RWfFP2X/coLinux-0.7.8.exe

a2) Compressed Linux filesystem from here :
http://www.fileserve.com/file/5QrvKD6/Ubuntu-9.04-1gb.7z
Unzip the the Ubuntu-9.04-1gb.tz file to C:\coLinux. This will take a while (unpacked it will be 1G). Unzipped, the file will have the name Ubuntu-9.04.ext3.1gb.fs.
The images that coLinux provides may not be big enough for our needs, especially if we plan to install Gnome or KDE. Here's a nifty little program we can use to increase the size of the image file: toporesize.zip. Toporesize can be found on Colinux Image Tools.
a3) Edit the colinux.conf file like this :
CODE
kernel=vmlinux
initrd=initrd.gz
cobd0=Ubuntu-9.04.ext3.1gb.fs
root=/dev/cobd0
mem=512
eth0=pcap-bridge,"LAN"
eth1=tuntap
b) tools
b1) 7z files from here :
http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
b2) NXclient client / server for Windows / Linux files from here :
http://www.nomachine.com/download.php
b3) Wincap-nmap-4.11.exe file
c) script.bat
edited script.bat like this and put it on the root of the ISO image
CODE
@echo off
set tagsource=\colinux
for %%i in (c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z) do if exist "%%i:%tagsource%" set cddrive=%%i:
set tagdest=\"autoexec.bat"
for %%i in (c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z) do if exist "%%i:%tagdest%" set drivedest=%%i:
echo %cddrive%
echo %drivedest%
%cddrive%
cd \tools
winpcap-nmap-4.11.exe /s
%drivedest%
cd \
if exist %drivedest%\colinux echo You already have an old installaion of Colinux,starting...
if exist %drivedest%\colinux goto start_colinux
mkdir colinux
%cddrive%
cd \colinux
xcopy *.* %drivedest%\colinux /S
cd \tools\7z
copy 7z*.* %drivedest%\colinux
%drivedest%
cd \colinux
7z e Ubuntu-9.04-1gb.tz
:start_colinux
%drivedest%
cd \colinux
colinux-daemon.exe --remove-driver
colinux-daemon.exe --install-driver
start /MIN colinux-daemon @colinux.conf
%cddrive%
cd \tools\nxclient
start nxclient
that's all. I attached a screenshot to show how works WinPE and Linux together,some time ago enemies,now friends :)
