  2. Hi I'm really interested to make a USB bootable on all systems especially the ones that can only run on USB drives configured for x64 or UEFI for now IM only using the Microsoft windows setup (x86) wim for running a script that uses imagex on those systems (the USB drive isn't recognized after boot, ..before Setup) My first question is: must I have to acquire a x64 boot wim for the process And if don't: What files do I need to include on the USB root, are they the ones found in "C:\Make_PE3\win7pe_x86\*" ? Or if I do need to build "C:\Make_PE3\win7pe_amd64\*" .. How do I populate it with needed files So Im really looking for hints on how to make this all work TIA

  10. Hi, Im looking for something that will allow me to set a parameter for a batch job in a way so i can type something that will set a var and direct\call to batch job. Not from set /p but from a shell box. for instance a simple batch tool that will set homepage for the browser: I want it to perform in a way so that it will pop a shell box, saying "set home page to ___" and have a default parameter in it, as "www.google.com" but so i can type a different feed \address to it and then this calls or sets a %var% to the hidden batch job that will run for instance REG ADD HKCU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\MAIN" /V "START PAGE" /D "%1%" /F or REG ADD HKCU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\MAIN" /V "START PAGE" /D "%homepage_var%" /F the only emphasis is that it will redirect the parameter back to a batch job i suppose this can be achieved with vb script help and maybe some batch help thanks in advance
