Win10PE SE HomePage / Re: Problem with TreeSize Free
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:48:57 PM »
slightly OT.

I just came across WizTree.

Similar to TreeSize. Single exe, portable OOB.
Not sure if it has any dependencies like .NET or VC. Still no option to change font size (small now). E-mailed dev with suggestions.

Edit: Just 1.3M / 1.8M after UPXing.

One by one:
Following topic, when you use CreateISO + grub4dos + isoboot , with a successful boot, you do not have "Error: no tag file found" anymore?

Used Create ISO. These plugins:

G4D menu :

System Intel Haswell + Z87.

g4d 4.6a and no usb thumb drive attached - BSOD 7B
g4d 4.6a and usb thumb drive attached - BSOD 7B

g4d 4.5c and no usb  thumb drive attached - boots OK
g4d 4.5c and usb  thumb drive attached (first boot after starting up system) : BSOD 7F
g4d 4.5c and usb  thumb drive attached (subsequent start ups) : boots OK.

That is, if the system was shut down and then I start it up and try to boot from the ISO with a UFD attached  I get a BSOD.
But the system was booted OK from another windows or pe, then I restart the system and try to boot the ISO with a UFD attached , then it works OK.
Both the above with g4d 4.5c.

haven't had the time, I'll do it this week end.

... as much as I do :

- download Ribbon Disabler from here :

- boot to Win10PE SE and run that program

- save file explorerframe.dll from system32

- include that file in future builds ( I use Additional Files )

Since you will using the same ISO in future builds, this is a one time job.

I noticed that when I run Win10PE SE I can access/delete/rename any file on any partition.

I can't do that with regular Windows, lited windows, even Win7PE SE or GENA (I think).

Can I duplicate that 'feature' on a lited Windows 10 ?

with WinVBlock and  v0.4.6a 2016-12-24 of grub4dos, using wimboot I get the "Error: no tag file found". I need a small ISO thats why I use wimboot.


I'll try with createiso later.

If you use grub4dos to boot a GENA ISO and you get the "Error: no tag file found" message it could be due to grub4dos.

I was using v 0.4.6a 2016-12-24 of grub4dos on one of my systems and got that error. In fact GENA could not read the contents of the WinPE (CD) drive - it said unrecognised file system. I could not understand why. It worked OK on another system. Then it occured to me it might be grub4dos. When I installed grub4dos-0.4.5c-2016-01-18 it worked OK.

In fact the problem I mentioned here : might also be due to that.

grub4dos download :

I was getting the BSOD even without USB 3 drivers.

I'll try what you reco.

I had a GENA that was made from and it works OK in the Intel system. So I made the GENA mentioned above with that build. Only used the plugins mentioned above plus USB3 with small build. It works OK.

So, maybe, the Removable devices combo and/or DPs Mass Storage drivers are the cause. Can't be 100% sure :-) Edit : Or USB3.

I got a nice small 50MB GENA with ghost that I wanted. Thanks to The Oven. I boot to memory from a USB 2.0 UFD - larger ISOs take longer to load.

btw :  Removable devices combo is v23
 DPs Mass Storage drivers is v73
 USB3 is v9

I'm making a small wimboot Gena with only Ghost. Only plugins are :
 Removable devices combo
 DPs Mass Storage drivers

The PE was made on a AMD system where it runs fine. I boot from memory using grub4dos.

On a Intel (Haswell) system it runs OK. But if a USB flash drive is present when booting I get a BSOD 7F. Happens when booting from HDD or UFD.

What could be the reason?

Because small build breaks some other programs.

Ok, thanks. Forgot that.

Is there a way to reduce the size of the system32\MUI folder in GENA if the user only wants a English lang PE?
Just noticed it is 42MB. Trying to make a small GENA.

EDIT : If the PE is going to be used on relatively modern hardware, is it worth using the DPs Mass Storage drivers plugin?
EDIT1 : Yes DPs needed.

I wanted a easy way to enable/disable network connections.

SetIfaceState here :

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Warning : this program may not work for non-English Windows. It also has a few 'bugs'.

Is it better disable access to the internet when booting from a PE?

Is there any tool to indicate if your system is vulnerable to such malware ?

Plugins / Re: Still a new Mozilla Firefox plugin

I just updated the Win10PE SE I have and built a new Win10PESE_x86.ISO. Thanks.

I added the Firefox plugin v14 (v51.0 FF). If possible, please add a option to associate files ( .htm etc) with FF - like the Opera plugin does.

Sendto works OK.

Version 2.1 (23 Sep 2016)

    Minor modifications to the user interface.
    New action: Clear file list.
    Minor bug fixes and enhancements.

not sure if this is a solution. long back when parted magic was freeware. i remember a similar error.

did you see a "vmalloc should be 32 mb greater than ..." error message  ?

i increased vmalloc=nnnMiB in syslinux.cfg and it worked. i had to rebuild the iso, i was booting via grub4dos.
