Well, you can include Gena as one of favorite PE, pe1 still many peoples favorite PE and Gena is The Only active one
"Victoria" (HDD diagnostics). Some of it's functions won't work in PE3/PE4 environments. Since disk diagnostic is one thing i have to do daily in my line of work, Gena is Indispensable for me.
Kinda funny you mention disk related tasks, because I remember one of the reasons I left Gena behind [for a while] was that XP disk management had some trouble with my multiboot setup. I'd have to look up some notes to see what the exact problem was, but I'm sure you can tell me how Gena performs in that respect. Have you run into that problem as well? Do you use third party HD managers?
If you find the time, maybe you can share some details on which particular tasks only Gena (and Victoria) can do?
Yes, there are known issues with "PE 1" disk management. You can delete partitions but you won't be able to create and format new ones. You will receive some sort of error message which i don't exactly remember. Also WinXP by default doesn't have support for GPT disks ( there is a workaround by using "disk.sys" from 2003 server )
As Lancelot said in http://theoven.org/index.php?topic=1143.msg13222#msg13222, use Server 2003 SP2 as source and disable "Small Core build" to enable full file copy.
one thing missed, I can not get usb sticks work, they need to be formatted (big/small ,during boot, 2k3/sp, all result same) well, accessing harddrive has top priority, I can live with that
IntroductionThis topic is mainly for announcing new versions of Disk imaging software ("imagers"), that can be built into your favorite PE (Using a "special" PE project from TheOven.org, of course).It is also for sharing tips on where you can find ready-made scripts to do the work for you, and for going "behind the scenes" a bit, to see how those scripts actually work: which files are needed to make the imagers work in PE ("dependencies"), are extra drivers needed, what has changed between versions, etc.- Terabyte Image for Windows (same)
EDIT: I was thinking a bit about your Terabyte Image script, the fact that you can't share the files, and the license key needed to make it run. Maybe you can make a new script, like others have done for Acronis/ Macrium etc, that takes the original download, then extract it, copy the needed files for PE, and add some GUI elements to add the license info?The official download is here: http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/downloads/ifw_en_ifdgui_trial.exeit's only a 14mb download and all files can be easily extracted with innounp.
