  2. WinPE 2.0 - what to remove

    How can I remove drivers from WinPE 2.0 mounted image? Is there any tool to remove drivers? We can add peimg /inf=<inf file> so it will add drivers into mounted wim image but I haven't found any tool to remove drivers from mounted image. Any pointer would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. I did following steps >copype.cmd x86 %PEDIR% >imagex /mountrw %PEDIR%\ISO\sources\boot.wim 1 %PEDIR%\mount // removed font foleder from /windows/font // removed unused exe,dll from /windows/system32/ // added some drivers, by peimg /inf---how can i remove drivers from mounted image here itself so that it can boot fast? // added 50 mb of binaries for our customization >peimg /prep %PEDIR%\WINDOWS >imagex /unmount %MOUNTDIR% /commit >imagex /export %PEDIR%\ISO\sources\boot.wim 1 %PEDIR%\ISO\sources\boot.wim %1 /compress max >oscdimg.exe -b%PEDIR%\ISO\boot\etfsboot.com -lWINPE20 -n -o -m %PEDIR%\ISO %PEDIR%\DefWinPEISO.iso Thanks
  4. Reducing WinPE 2.0 footprint!

    Hi Rakesh what were you able to remove. I am in the process of trying stripping out dll's and exe's but having problems reducing the size to what i like it to be. Basically i trying to get the winpe with network running on a pc with 256mb. I am pxe boot and loading the Winpe image into memory so space is really important. I have attached removed exe list. ~rakesh removedexe.txt
  5. Reducing WinPE 2.0 footprint!

    I did following steps >copype.cmd x86 %PEDIR% >imagex /mountrw %PEDIR%\ISO\sources\boot.wim 1 %PEDIR%\mount // removed font foleder from /windows/font // removed unused exe,dll from /windows/system32/ // added some drivers, by peimg /inf // added 50 mb of binaries for our customization >peimg /prep %PEDIR%\WINDOWS >imagex /unmount %MOUNTDIR% /commit >imagex /export %PEDIR%\ISO\sources\boot.wim 1 %PEDIR%\ISO\sources\boot.wim %1 /compress max >oscdimg.exe -b%PEDIR%\ISO\boot\etfsboot.com -lWINPE20 -n -o -m %PEDIR%\ISO %PEDIR%\DefWinPEISO.iso I am trying this on default ISO image now without adding my drivers, yeah it optimize iso image size but It won't affect in boot time, boot time remain same. but I want to optimize further in time. also in size if you have some more suggestions. --> Problem I face is: When I copy Waik package on my local machine then I tried above experiement on it, but when I export this wim file It reduced size, when I used this reduced wim file in oscdimg, my iso size is reduced. but when I again mount exported wim file it has all the componant which I have removed. still it has same boot time, no change in boot time, what can I do for optimize time? thanks

  7. PE 2.0 Boot Screen

    Hi Zorphnog, Great! I am also done. Thanks.... But I did it in another way, your way is also helpful to me. Steps 1> Make folder ISO\boot\en-US and copy image bootmgr.exe.mui into it from %imageroot%\Windows\Boot\PCAT\en-US. 2> Modified this resource by resource hacker.( freely available on internet ). 3> Done we will get modified text screen. Thanks really good work you have done for me, thank you very much!
  8. PE 2.0 Boot Screen

    Could you please tell me which image you have modified?
  9. PE 2.0 Boot Screen

    I modified all bootmgr.exe.mui depending upon language en-US, that I got into my ISO folder, but it still not changed text. then after I did peimg /lang=en-us on our mounted image.Is there any way to change resource files (bootmgr.exe.mui) in one shot? thanks for your replies.
  10. PE 2.0 Boot Screen

    zorphnog, I am using resource hacker (reshacker.exe ), that freely available on net. using this editor I can not edit ISO\bootmgr file, it says "this is not win32 executable file", I have to go for another editor, could you please suggest?, but still what about check sum? I have got some link to calculate checksum but its complex to do so. steps to calculate this checksum I got is, 1> Read whole file word by word, 2> add all word with carry forward, 3> split this 32 bit into two 16 bit. 4> add two 16 bit w/o carry. you will get checksum. p4ntb0y, I tried even this also, Steps i had performed for it is, 1> open bootmgr.exe.mui using reshacker.exe. 2> open specific resource file bootmgr.xsl and save this resource file as binary. 3> open saved resource file and edit string "Windows is loading files..." 4> replace resource binary that modified with reshacker.exe opened resource file. 5> you will have modified resource binay into bootmgr.exe.mui 6> unmount and commit Wim image,create ISO image, It wont affect this text, when I boot with this ISO image. I modified almost all mui file \mount\Windows\Boot\PXE\en-US\bootmgr.exe.mui, \mount\Windows\Boot\PCAT,\mount\Windows\System32\RemInst\boot\x86\en-US also. Thanks bot of you guys.

  14. Hi, Could anyone please help me on changing boot text and progress bar when winPE 2.0 boots? When WinPE 2.0 boots it shows "Windows is loading files..." and below that one progress bar is shown in Vista PE. If we want to change this message and progress bar, In WinPE 1.0 we have I386\txtsetup.sif, I have done some operation on it to do this text change, but I had no luck with Vista PE 2.0. because there is no default txtsetup.sif file, when I replace txtsetup.sif file of WinPE 1.0 to WinPE 2.0 its not affecting at all. still it shows same message and progress bar. Could anyone please help me on it? Thanks.
