  1. Hi all, Does anyone know exactly how to automate hidden recovery partition with option to hit function-key during post, which will activate the 'restore to factory'-process? I read all the discussions, but there is no full and clear guide/explanation. What I want to do: Make a winpe 2.0 cd/dvd which creates 2 partitions: 1 hidden recovery with fixed size (4GB), 1 system partiton with the rest of the available size. Afterwards with free available tool from Terabyte mbr.exe (windows-version) make the function-key available which in turn will activate the recovery process if function-key is pressed during POST. After factory wim-image is restored, recovery partition has to be made hidden again and rebooted to the restored system-partition. I'm aware of diskpart script and can create the partitions automatically , but get stuck at switching from one partition to another with Terabyte-tool. I use sysprep-images on a daily base and it would be awesome if I can do the same as roalty OEM-companies with recovery partition but using free available software (WAIK/OPK) from Microsoft and Terabyte. Next step will be to create an application form with different options to select: - Create recovery-cd/dvd with or without wim-image included - Create factory recovery partition - Restore factory image (user data will be destroyed) - Restore image without destroying user-data) - Start diagnostic Tools (UBCD/UBCD4WINDOWS/WINBUILDER) - Install XP from USB AFTER Booting with PE from HDD or USB, Install from USB without Booting from USB - ...
  2. Problem with asms files

    Concerning file asms-problem, I solved this by manually copying ASMS-folder and contents from source to USB-stick. That solved the problem. Hope this will help also for you.

    Hi Bashrat, I don't know if this is interesting for you, but they claim to have one of the best compression tool available at the moment. KGB-archiver, better compression than 7zip Maybe you can use it for future purposes. Greetings from Belgium!

    Hoi Bâshrat! Ik wens je het allerbeste met je examen, en vooral met wiskunde dan ook. Ik volg reeds meer dan 5 jaar de eerste websites die er waren toen tot heden om multiboot-cd's te maken, vooral de multiboot CD voor NT waren toen populair, ken de website al niet meer, maar toen veel geleerd. Vervolgens de bekende site van Michael KH Au Yeung, BartPE en dan MSFN. Voor mijn werk heb ik dagelijks met computers te maken en heb mijn collega's al kunnen warm maken om zo een cd te gebruiken, ik pas ook alles toe op multi-boot dvd omdat wij meerdere software-utilities gebruiken in de praktijk, buiten alleen maar Windows-versies te installeren. Ik probeer binnenkort de Universal Imaging Utility uit in combinatie met jouw driverpacks (UIU), daar je dan maar 2 images nodig zou hebben om bijna alle PC te kunnen installeren. HAL/ACPI. Sterkte met je examens, dat het vlug voorbij is en stilletjesaan tegemoet naar de eindejaarsfeesten. Groetjes uit het Antwerpse!
  6. Slipstreamed XP CD with driver packs with BartPE

    I think so, I don't know, I used this solution when installation of updated XP CD failed because of driver errors in text-setup. After copying/moving above sys and sy_-files, BARTPE installed fine, but I never checked those with your other drivers.
  7. Slipstreamed XP CD with driver packs with BartPE

    Hi, Just copy *.sys and *.sy_-files from slipstreamed XP-CD (I386-folder) to BARTPE\I386\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS and you are done. Then create the ISO for BARTPE and all should work now.
  8. In addition of previous post, I found the info on following url: http://newdos.yginfo.net/msdos71/ From there I made changes to do a fully automated install of DOS 7.1 (sorry, not DOS 7.0). There are many enhancements, new features and bugfixes in MS-DOS 7.10 since MS-DOS 6.x. For example: * FAT32 and FAT32X drives support (*very* important nowadays) * Extended FAT16 (a.k.a. FAT16X, type 0E, usually being the primary partition) drives support * Large hard disk and LBA ExtendedX (Int 13x) partition (type 0F) support (*very* important nowadays) * Long File Names (LFN) support * Full Y2K (Year 2000) compliant and supports 4-digit years (e.g. DIR /4) * Large memory (>64MB) and XXMS 3.0 support * Euro sign support (Code Page 850, Right Alt+5) * The protection that keeps the stability of DOS * Efficient use of UMB memory (The DOS kernel and COMMAND.COM are loaded high automatically) * Extended commands in CONFIG.SYS to use UMB memory, such as FILESHIGH, BUFFERSHIGH * Environments variables can be used in the DOS command line directly, e.g. ECHO %PATH% * The maximum length for path variable is expanded * Some new commands added, such as ACCDATE, LOGO(in CONFIG.SYS) * Volume LOCK/UNLOCK feature added to protect data and LFN on the (hard) disks * EDIT can be used to edit both text and binary files and multiple files * REN can rename a directory as well as files * The locations of DOS system files (especially IO.SYS) are much more flexible * Dual-boot with older versions of MS-DOS (e.g. DOS 6.x) feature added * Animated startup logo support by using a custom LOGO.SYS file * You can decide whether to execute a command using Enter/ESC key now while using the step-by-step feature * Support for loading Win9x GUI (including all versions from Win95/95A to Win98SE GUI) on top added * Many undocumented but useful options and switches added, such as COMMAND /Z * Updated and newer versions of DOS commands and tools included, such as MORE, MSCDEX, MSD * And many more...
  9. Hi, I once made a bootable DOS 7.0 CD, doing following unattended: - Boot DOS 7.0 from CD - Auto Partition HDD > 32 GB - Autoreboot - Install full DOS 7.0 unattended + extra tools - Install Win 3.11 unattended with caldera All done without user intervention and done in minutes You can expand this CD and put other automated tools on it In combination of cdshell
  10. TIPS&TRUCS CT Multiboot DVD

    Nice for reading this topic in dutch, I'm doing this almost 2 years and have used for my job as pc-technician. Have you guys looked at another dutch/belgian site explaining this multiboot cd/dvd-project? Look at this url: http://users.pandora.be/espetado/xpstream.htm
