Plugin VirtualBox on Win10PESE: (very fast; x64 + x86)

Status: Far away from 'complete'; for demonstration purposes only. 1 button 'Launch program' implemented. No Registry-keys. (VirtualBoxPortable.Script 124.99 kB)

In progress/next steps: Recreate Plugin-surface; 1 button 'Configure your VM' (starts VirtualBox' configurator). And 1 more button 'Start VM with your personal settings'  (->VirtualBox.xml)
Add a possibility to integrate your previously made settings in final PE-build. Including the acquisition of bootable media (ISO, hdd.vhd, ...) into your PE-Build (either CDVD or boot.wim). For example, a Win7-PE.iso 800MB.

I spend a few nights with testing XML-edit, controlled by plugin script. I had success. But now I have decided: Let's do the configuration work by VirtualBox.


^^Win10PESE_x64.ISO 1.265 GB, no hdd, 3D-acceleration 256MB GFX, 2500MB assigned RAM. Desktop ready after a few seconds.

Suggestions & co-workers welcome  :smile:

This script follows licence approval: No changes to company's programm/package files ! To get the whole thing working in Win10PE, we implement their files in PE as they are given!

And many thanks to Oracle for this exquisite program.

->BIOS-settings: Enable VT-x (Intel-CPU) or AMD-V (AMD-CPU). If your CPU has not this capability, VirtualBox runs only 32-Bit Virtual Machines.

1. Look for 'Portable VirtualBox'  ( --> you get a file named  Portable-VirtualBox_v5.0.26-Starter_v6.4.10-Win_all.exe
 -> Run this or un-zip it:


2. Run Portable-VirtualBox.exe
 -> Check 'Extract the files for a 64-Bit system'
 -> Download newest Oracle VirtualBox 5.1.12 platform package for Windows Hosts v5.1.12 (VirtualBox-5.1.12-112440-Win.exe) - and point to this file.
 -> Run, install VBoxadditions - and 7-zip this to 'Portable-VirtualBox.7z'. (The resulting archive may not be so huge as showed, only ~65 MB.)


Sorry, my VirtualBoxPortable.Script is gone. I got a 'Out of system memory'-message. No backup. No chance to recover. (Portable-VirtualBox.7z 98MB was encoded in script; my failure  :sad:)
Enable DirectX.script, DotNet.script 2.0-4.0 full, VcRunTimes.script, Vss.script, Common Components.script
The service VBoxDrv  is needed: (in Win10PE the Portable-VirtualBox doesn't install it)
Code: [Select]
RegWrite,HKLM,0x1,Tmp_System\ControlSet001\Services\VBoxDrv,DisplayName,"VirtualBox Service"

^^I show this part, because RegPeConvert's output  is maybe not correct. The original Registry-key is: (CurrentControlSet)
Code: [Select]
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"DisplayName"="VirtualBox Service"

Greetings, Gerhard.
