Win7PE SE HomePage / Re: boot.wim size and 0xc0000017 error
« on: November 11, 2017, 07:27:44 AM »
So I am making some progress. It turns out the reason some of the plugins not showing up was because they just weren't working correctly. Also, I renamed the "programs" folder because I also have an old BartPE system on the bootable USB and I didn't want them to overwrite each other. Fortunately editing the Win7PE.cfg file was unnecessary as it appears to build correctly and I managed to get several of the plugins to work with the "run as normal" option. I've been tweaking thisa for so long that I don't even remember all of the options and combinations of options I have made or changed anymore but it is finally looking much better.

This is probably a topic for another thread but where is the default PATH set and is it easily accessible? I'd like to include some of the dircopy_* directories so they are in the default path.

I've tried changing the settings on almost all of the plugins (Chrome,ACronis,Firefox  many more) to NORMAL but after building, there are no links on the desktop or in start->programs.  The only way I have gotten any of them to be visible was to make them "run from RAM".  To be clear, I am not booting the ISO from grub4dos. I am copying all of the contents of  Win7PESE\ISO\TI\WIM to the root of the USB drive and the menu.lst entry looks like:
title Windows 7 PE
chainloader /BOOTMGR
The folder structure on the bootable USB looks like:
/Boot
BOOTMGR
bootmgr.efi
CdUsb.Y
/efi
/Intel
/Programs_SE_x64
/sources
TheOven_Startup_CD.cmd
Win7PE.cd

I've built this over and over (easily hundreds of times) while changing the options for many of the plugins from RAM to NORMAL, trying basically every plugin with both options. In fact, the only plugins that seem to work well with the NORMAL setting, are HWINFO, BGINFO and CHM.
I've been at this for months. I've tried a complete fresh install and building the whole thing from scratch.
I just don't think there are any other settings I can try as I think I have toggled everything.

Win7PE SE HomePage / boot.wim size and 0xc0000017 error
« on: November 10, 2017, 08:23:52 PM »
I've been successfully building a WINPE system but because of the large number of drivers and the plugins I have been including and the size of the boot.wim file, I am getting a "Error Code 0xc0000017, There isn't enough memory available to create a ramdisk device " immediately on boot.  I'm trying to build a bootable USB that has several utilities but because I am using grub4dos as the boot loader, I have to use the "run from RAM" option for my plugins. This also increases the size of the boot.wim file. What I am looking for is some way to avoid the RAMDISK error by increasing some parameter but I'm not really sure where to look. I tried changing the SCRATCH space which appears to be 256 but changing to 512 didn't help.
Anyone have any ideas?

Plugins / Re: Acronis True Image - Prz42

I got the plugin to install and load but I am having the exact same issue you are having where it will not backup to a mapped drive. I will try your workaround though. I'm also hoping someone who is subscribed to this thread found a solution.

Ok, as a temporary workaround I added the following to penetwork_after.cmd:
mkdir /D b:\backup m:\

This creates a symbolic link in the ramdrive that tricks Acronis into thinking it's backing up to a local drive.  If anyone has any idea on how to get it working without doing this I would greatly appreciate the tips.

I managed to get most of the issues worked out. The main issue I am having now is with plugins that don't seem to work correctly (can't get Acronis Disk Director 12 to work no matter what!) , or that even though the proper files are copied during the build, there are no shortcuts created (GHOST L plugins for instance) regardless of the settings (desktop etc) I choose before the build. All of these are fairly minor but I will keep trying.

Yes. And I finally had success. I had to change the Windows 7 x64 source ISO to one with SP1 integrated but with no additional patches like a newer version of IE. I kept getting missing DLLs (api-ms-win-downlevel-user32-l1-1-0-011) but after I changed source to en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso, every started working. Now to go back and try to get some of the important plugins and see if I can get them to work.

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish...?? :confused:

Are you trying to make a Win7x64PESE to run on your Alienware machine?

Not having much luck except changing the build to use "In RAM", at least got me to a functioning (non blue screen) bootable USB. It still has several errors and only a cmd prompt after booting, I think I am getting closer.

The actual blue screen error is 0x0000007b.

So after using the ISO that was created from NTLITE that had all of the necessary drivers like the USB and m.sata drivers which work fine as an installable source, I get a 0x000000f error almost immediately when booting the from the USB created by copying the ISO from winbuilder. That usually means a missing driver but I can definitely see the drivers on the USB.  I'm not quite sure where to go from here.


Sorry this is so disjointed. I just stated the whole process from scratch just in case I missed something. Is there a preferred process for copying a WinBuilder ISO to a USB stick? I've been using RUFUS.

Can't edit original post so:
Some of the things I have tried are:
manually adding the USB 3 and m7.sata drivers with DISM.EXE into both boot.wim and install.wim.
Toggling every combination of the USB3 and driverpack plugins in Winbuilder.

I used to use BartPE to build custom ISOs/USB back in the XP days, and now I am looking to build a custom Windows 7 ISO for my Alienware 17 R3 laptop. Unfortunately windows 7 is not really supported as Dell/Alienware really wants to try and force everyone to go to Windows 10. I really don't like Windows 7 and I managed to install Windows 7 x64 after following some others guides on including the necessary drivers via integrating them via NTLITE. The custom USB I created boots up and sees all of the necessary devices and drive after adding lots of missing drivers. I tried using the same custom ISO as the source for WinBuilder but it either blue screens almost immediately on boot complains about a missing CDROM.SYS. I used RUFUS to copy the ISO built by WinBuilder which seemed to work ok without errors. I"m not really sure where to go from here as I just assumed a custom ISO from NTLITE with added patches and drivers, would work correctly with WinBuilder as the source. More details to follow with specific errors.
Two of the main drivers that I had to integrate into the customized ISO were a driver for the M7.sata drive and the USB 3 ports which can not be disabled or forced to be USB 2 ports.
