Development and code snippets / USB7ice
« on: January 19, 2017, 02:15:04 PM »
Here is a tool to create a bootable USB drive from an ISO.
Starting from an ISO to extract (copy) files is much faster than copying from a folder or from a mounted ISO.

It is faster than the Copy To USB plugins but a little slower than the very good Rufus.
However, depending on the ISO used, it is compatible with BIOS/UEFI (Sadly, Rufus does not allow), as SE projects allow.
FAT32 is required for UEFI and the dual boot mode.

Well, a screenshot is better

Plugins / Still a new Mozilla Firefox plugin
« on: March 17, 2016, 05:46:17 AM »
Opera 12 as the default browser in WinPESE has probably had its day  :wink:
I built this Mozilla Firefox plugin with options that suit me, as a possible replacement in SE.

Thanks to Mikka, Kyhi. I was inspired by their plugins, still active of course  :thumbsup:
To avoid confusion, I named it Mozilla Firefox CR.

Does anyone know how to change the default Search Engine ? I try with

Win10PE SE HomePage / Fix some issues with integrated drivers
« on: September 04, 2015, 05:45:42 AM »
For the proper functioning of drivers integration, You must update 1-files.script and 2-Config.script.
Or take all the updates to enjoy the others improvements  :wink:   

After reading some posts with worries about wireless drivers, I did some further tests.

Currently with the drivers hive coming from Install.wim, Drivers integration does not work properly for drivers already registered (drivers that already exist in Win10 source DriverStore).
For those drivers, Dism /Add-Driver says that the operation completed successfully after checking the registry but in fact the Inf file and the DriverStore folder are not copied and not here.
There is no chance to operate  :embarrassed:
The only way in that case, is to copy the Inf file and the DriverStore folder.

By using Boot.wim Drivers hive, the drivers registry match the target Driver Store. So no worries, All goes well  :cool:

Shortly: Win10pese Uses boot.wim Driver Hive now. It should Fix some issues with some integrated drivers  :thumbsup:

Notes: No change in "Original NET drivers" which proceeds differently and does its job whatever the hive used.
The easiest way for most LAN and WLAN drivers. Tell me for missing Net drivers.

By The way, really excellent job, project work very efficiently. I will always use X86 source of Windows 10, so I hope, that NVDA script could be make. But I really do not know, how to repair it myself.........
Thank You very very much for Yours developers help.
With kindness regards.

You also know that I prefer a topic or post than a personal message. So it is here  :thumbsup:

I just updated the old NVDA plugin with latest version 2015.3 inside and 2,3 little things.
it works well here in Win7 to Win10pese even though I am unable to use it by closing my eyes  :wink:

Win10PE SE HomePage / Win10PESE Preview
« on: June 19, 2015, 09:19:49 AM »
Hi guys,

A little busy with other things, It's been a while since I'm out of PE :embarrassed:

Recently, I tried to play around with Windows 10 preview (10074, 10122, ... ,10162, 10166) and 10240 now.
Here is my beginning with Win10PESE x86/x64, pure 64-bits, without the great WoW64 support.
It seems that we will have to do without, unfortunately  :sad: and to use 64-bit apps for x64 building.

ila_rendered


Few notes:
Great work Chris  :thumbsup:

Not sure I can help with WOW64. Looks like the problem is smss.exe again, but sadly this file is protected since Win8.
Thanks JFX  :thumbsup:

I use 7zip to extract what I think might be useful from winsxs, (may be possible to do that with wimlib, not sure how). Then use wimlib to delete winsxs from winre.wim, and extract the rest.
Thanks SIW2 for this "less slow" tip,  for the extraction for the SmallFull choice (1-Copy Files)  :thumbsup:


At first build, the registry is prepared then saved in Shell & Config with time savings for the next builds.
Registry files are saved in Workbench\Win10PESE\%WIMName%_%WIMEditionID%_%OSVersion%_%SourceArch%_%DistLang%

Virus Removal Tool is a utility designed to remove all types of infections from your computer.
It employs the effective detection algorithms used by Kaspersky Anti-Virus and AVZ.
It cannot substitute a resident antivirus application.

There is no update function built-in. It is regularly updated, even several times per day, but it requires to download ~145 Mb whenever we want to have the latest updates.
What a pity, the rest is great for PE (Eset online scanner is great too and it has the update function).
Index Download  or  ftp link: devbuilds.kaspersky-labs.com/devbuilds/AVPTool/index.txt


When running the Project or the plugin with the small green play button,
The latest avptool11 package version is downloaded.
and Kaspersky VRT is launched, it is first extracted in %temp%\RARSFX0 then install in %temp% with a 7 digit folder name generated.
In the same time, the plugin displays a message which is used to wait the end of Kaspersky virus removal tool installation:
Wait until you see the Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool License agreement windows.
Before leaving Kaspersky or to continue by accepting the license, Press OK on the message.

It allows the plugin to get the folder name (7 digit generated) and the started program name inside (7 digit genereted too) and to copy this folder in the project.
Once copied by the plugin, you can continue with Kaspersky VRT or exit.
When you exit Kaspersky, cleaning up files and registry is complete.

Plugins / Acronis Disk Director 12
« on: August 27, 2014, 10:53:30 AM »
I made a plugin for Acronis DiskDirector 12 based on the nice 2aCD plugin for DiskDirector 11 :thumbsup:

Acronis DiskDirector is an easy tool for harddiskdrive-management.

Features:

  • resize, split and merge volumes
  • create, convert, copy and move partitions
  • support for x86 and x64 sources
  • the script support version 11.0.216...2343
  • also run as shell only (without other shell for minimal cd)

Requirements:

you need an installed version on one PC to import the license key


Confirmed working with:

  • Win7PE_SE
  • Win8PE_SE
  • Win8.1SE

It is recommended to download the latest version from Acronis website.
Script is required in addition the WinPE Program Folder.
Copy WinPE32.zip file from the following folder:

on x86: c:\program files\common files\acronis\DiskDirector\WinPE
on x64: c:\program files (x86)\common files\acronis\DiskDirector\WinPE

to your BuildPC and select this folder inside the script.
Then copy the REG_SZ-Data from following regkey:

on x86: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\acronis\DiskDirector
on x64: Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\acronis\DiskDirector
Value: enterprise

and put it into the textbox. If you install Acronis Diskdirector on your BuildPC, you can import the serialnr. with script.
And now you start build.

Best Regards and happy testing
2aCD
Note that WinPE32.zip is used (not WinPE64.zip), it remains compatible with x64 build.

As for 2aCD's TrueImage plugin, it should be possible to make a plugin compatible with the 2 versions. I have not done.

The laucher was reviewed for Backupper v2.0.1 with the use of 32 or  64 bit version and the copy in RAM if the disk is not writable, is no longer really required.
It is just an option to use it or not, now.
     For History:
     This plugin have a laucher inside for copying, renaming: LoadDrv, X.exe, vss, X.dll, vsscom, X.exe Following OS and Architecture x86/x64 at runtime.
     With the copy of Aomei Backupper folder in RAM if the drive is not writable (CD/DVD,VM).
     It allows to have the same folder for XP, Win7, Win8 PE and x86,x64 for multi-boot CD/USB.
     On Writable media (USB), there is no copy in RAM.
     It Load Drivers (LoadDrv.exe) and then run Backupper.exe.
     After closing, it deletes the copied folder in RAM, if previously copied, to save space.



FYI, there is another plugin written by Aeolis, Here, deserved for this great Free software . :great:
AOMEI Backupper is user friendly and easy to use with all needed features, it is lightweight and fast and seems very reliable.

v5: It uses now the native Winpe64 for the 64-bit building.
v6: Added a checkbox, to use the starter or not. With v2.0.1, the copy in RAM if the disk is not writable, is no longer really required.

Win8.1 SE HomePage / Windows 8.1 Update 1 compatibility
« on: April 10, 2014, 12:06:52 PM »
First tests, Win8.1SE seems compatible with Windows 8.1 Update Release Tuesday  :cool:

I made a change in 1-Copy Files,
If Install.wim updated, compared to boot.wim, instead of copying boot.wim files/folders, the files are copied from Install.wim
For folders, I create a list of boot.wim files and then I copy these files from Install.wim. It allows to have files, drivers updated, but it is longer.

With official msdn Windows 8.1 with Update, boot.wim is up to date and the process is done as before.
It may be good to keep it for other updates of Install.wim, I'm not sure.


if someone has a trick to make it faster. Here an example of what is made for the Drivers folder:
Code: [Select]
If,Not,%InstallWimUpdated%,Equal,Yes,FileCopy,%b32%\drivers\*,%t32%\drivers
Else,Begin
  //- Copy Drivers files and mui from Install.wim following the existing boot.wim files
  Set,%LF%,%ProjectTemp%\ListFilesPlugin\Drivers_list.txt
  If,ExistFile,%LF%,Shellexecute,Hide,cmd.exe,"/C del /q /f #$q%LF%#$q"
  Shellexecute,Hide,cmd.exe,"/C dir /A:-D /B /S #$q%b32%\Drivers\*.*#$q >#$q%LF%#$q"
  TXTReplace,%LF%,%b32%\Drivers\%distlang%\,"DoNothing,"
  TXTReplace,%LF%,%b32%\Drivers\en-US\,"DoNothing,"
  TXTReplace,%LF%,%BootSRC%\,"CopyLFileMui,"
  TXTAddLine,%LF%,[Process],Prepend
  Run,%LF%,Process
  //If,ExistFile,%LF%,Shellexecute,Hide,cmd.exe,"/C del /q /f #$q%LF%#$q"
End

Plugins / PowerShell
« on: April 07, 2014, 11:53:34 AM »
I adapted 2aCD's PowerShell plugin from Win7pese to make it compatible with Win8.x.
PowerShell is a command-line shell and associated scripting language built on .NET Framework which is thus required.
A feedback is welcome. If anyone is interested by and want to test.

Win8.1SE project is based on PE5 environment and will use a Windows 8.1 DVD and supports both x86 or x64 architectures.
It is better (recommended) to have the DVD copied in a folder on your hard drive.

Win8.1SE is Based on the experienced organisation and reliability of Win7PE SE and Win8PE SE. It comes as a base with only a minimal of applications.
Take pleasure to personalize it and to add your components and applications.

Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool  :thumbsup:

Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation


2 types of constructions are possible in Win8.1SE.
- OS in RAM: to build a lightweight Win8.1 OS in RAM with the Administrator login and the full Windows 8.1 registry.
- PE in RAM: to build a PE5 environment based on Windows 8.1 with the Sytem account.
  The options "Refresh / Reset your PC" of the recovery environment works in the PE Mode but not in the OS build type.
  * Be careful with the option "Refresh your PC", there are a lot of posts about it on the net.


Thank you very much to sp_star for his idea and his great work on Win8.1 RamOS and to Doberman for all improvements provided on his Win8.1 RamOS  :great:

History:
A big thanks to the precursors on Win7PESE: Yahoouk's and JFX's.
Besides JFX continued help on numerous critical PE3 building cases and on PE4 as with WoW64 (running 32bit programs in a 64bit environment) and others...  :worship:  We are happy to see him around.
A huge thank you to those who have actively supported the Win7pese and Win8pese project JFX, Lancelot, Galapo, 2aCD and ALL others  :clap:

Thank you very much to ALL who help to make live this project and to make it better :thumbup:
