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

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?

Hi gbrao,

no idea.

Probably not related but you can still test with CreateISO

Code: [Select]
title Gena.iso (0xFF) Find Mem
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /Gena.ISO
map --mem /Gena.ISO (0xFF)
map --hook
chainloader (0xFF)

*
btw, Firadisk not required with WimBoot.

Let us know if you figure out.

I had a GENA that was made from Gena_Meal_2016-02-07.zip 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

Hi gbrao,


*
From your last post, I guess a bad USB3 driver cause BSOD .

With latest plugins on server :

+
Better disable "USB 3.0 Support" plugin , usb will continue working without usb3 plugin.

If this do not fix bsod than :
+
DPs ... plugin have option where you can switch "nightlies" with "stable"

let's see what will happen...

dps with nightlies contains some USB 3 drivers.

Maybe related maybe not.

That is the reason I wait your tests to check further.
