WinPE Mapping Samba Share

2 posts in this topic

Hi all...

I'm new to this whole WinPE thing just testing so we can use it for imaging Vista. (V2.0)

I have an issue that our image storage location is stored on a Terrastation (Samba Share). WinPE can not authenticate to this share. I know that Vista has a problem with the default authentication method/logging in to Samba and I assume WinPE has the same problem. I'm assuming I need to add the regkey LmCompatibilityLevel.

My question is where do I find the regkey to do this. Do you Load the hive right through regedit? I have built my image up to the point where it is ready to be prepared. When I try to load the HKLM reghive from the winpe.wim file it only has like 3 keys in it. Is this the way it should look?

Any info on modifying the reg keys would be helpful.

To add a regidtry entry to your mounted WIM file:

Mount your WIM image

Run regedit from your OS

Highlight the HKLM key

On the regedit menu select File|Load hive...

Navigate to <your mounted WIM image>\Windows\System32\Config

Select 'SYSTEM' :this is the HKLM\System hive for the mounted WIM. Select SOFTWARE if its the software hive you are after.

Regedit will ask for a key name, type 'Temp' or any name you like.

You know have a Temp hive in Regedit

Amend any key you like in this Temp hive

When finished select File|Unload hive... from the regedit menu.

Thats it - your changes are now in the Wim registry.

Dont forget to commit your changes to the mounted WIM for them to 'stick'
