windows PE 3.0

41 posts in this topic

Hi guys and girls :hello:

Look I am certain this has been done to death....just read so much....more confused than ever.

I have recently aquired Windows 7 Ultimate and I must say microsoft seem to have got this right....after Vista fiasco!

Can someone give me the heads up on how i build a PE boot with windows 7 for 64 bit?

Can't seem to find info on just creating the 64 bit version. OK! I am certain that it is probably the same as before as with 32bit but create 64 bit folders etc.

Can someone put me on the right track...please!

The Technet guide should be all you need. Assuming you're doing this from a machine with the WAIK installed, you should be able to follow this to make an amd64 PE image.

This is what i used, created 32 bit, just change the folder for the 64bit version, copy below into cmd file and run after installing winpe 3.0

RD /s/q C:\PE\winpe_x86

cd "c:\Program files\windows aik\tools\petools"

call copype.cmd x86 C:\PE\winpe_x86

pause

copy c:\PE\winpe_x86\winpe.wim c:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO\Sources\boot.wim

pause

cd "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\Servicing"

Dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO\Sources\boot.wim /index:1 /MountDir:C:\PE\winpe_x86\mount

PAUSE

Copy D:\MakePE3\Windows\System32\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\Mount\Windows\System32

Copy D:\MakePE3\Icon\*.* C:\PE\Winpe_x86\ISO

pause

cd "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86\Servicing"

Dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\PE\winpe_x86\mount /Commit

PAUSE

cd "C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\x86"

oscdimg -n -bc:\PE\winpe_x86\etfsboot.com c:\PE\winpe_x86\ISO c:\PE\winpe_x86\winpe_x86.iso

PAUSE

Hi again :thumbup

I know this is an old thread, but I thought it was still relevant to the question in hand....

When creating the pe boot cd is there a way to add a preference for keyboard? I would like to add the Swedish one if that is possible.

Thanks!

Hi again :yes:

As you all know by now - I am about a hundred years behind you guys...I know that you should keep the boot.wim to a reasonable size because of memory errors.

Yes, I know there is a ton of litrature out there and Tripredacus has some great links....still have a question.

Question:

To cover the bases when adding drivers...which ones are classed as the most important and should be in the wim and which ones can be in the ISO and not need to be loaded into ram?

I know that network drivers are a biggy....just wondered about the others especially when there are so many drivers to be had from Driverpacks.net

Switches for what? :w00t:

Anyways, as far as drivers go. For the boot.wim you only need LAN and Mass Storage drivers. If you are not doing a network deployment, you may not even need LAN drivers. Since all my WinPE use is from PXE, those two driver types are the ones I use. However, I don't go about adding drivers willy-nilly. Only if a hardware isn't working properly, I add its drivers.

Hi Tripredacus!

Well, in the code above from ner he used D /s/q. Just thought it would be nice to understand what each does.

And regarding adding drivers that you don't need - I here you. I have done just that....added network drivers and mass storage.

If I was to add other drivers to the pot and avoid adding them to the boot.wim but have them available on the CD then what would be the code for that if I have say my PE folder on C:\PE

Thanks again for your advice....much appreciated!

Hi Tripredacus!

Well, in the code above from ner he used D /s/q.

It looks like a typo. Should be RD /s/q.

C:\Users\xxxx>rd /?
Removes (deletes) a directory.

RMDIR [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path
RD [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path

/S Removes all directories and files in the specified directory
in addition to the directory itself. Used to remove a directory
tree.

/Q Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to remove a directory tree with /S

Hi Tripredacus!

Have to work on stuff when I have a mo....

I remember asking you for the info on adding other keyboard preferences such as Swedish, but I didn't ask you where I can get the extra language info? Are the languages with the WAIK iso? and just not added unless required?

If not - where does one find them to add them to the image?

Thanks!

@bookie32

The only language installed as default is english

You can get additional Winpe language files within the WAIK ISO.

i guess to remember that on WinPE 3 it's located directly on the CD.

On Winpe 4 it's installed unter C:\Program Files..\..\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\x86\WinPE_OCs

replace x86 to amd64 on above Path to get Language Pack for 64 bit systems

use

DISM.exe /Image:C:\test\offline /Add-Package /PackagePath:sv-se\lp.cab

to add language

use the following command to set WinPE to Swedish

Dism /image:C:\test\offline /Set-AllIntl:sv-se

c:\test\offline is the mounted winpe

when you add the the language pack and set the keyboard layout to your language (Dism /image:C:\test\offline /Set-AllIntl:sv-se) then you

have all what you need. inclusive special county character on your keyboard.

Hi again

Now I am really lost....not hard I hear you saying.... :lol:

Trying to run the build commands for my winpe and once again xcopy is letting me down and I don't know why.

I have created this structure:

D.\Projects\WinPE\winpe_x86

WAIK is also installed on D:

D:\Program Files(x86)\Windows AIK

I ran the general setup command:


copype.cmd x86 D:\Projects\WinPE\winpe_x86

No Problems...

I mounted my image:


DISM /mount-wim /WimFile:D:\Projects\WinPE\winpe_x86\winpe.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:D:\Projects\WinPE\winpe_x86\mount

I add the servicing tools:



xcopy "D:\Program Files (x86)\Windows AIK\Tools\Servicing" D:\Projects\WinPE\winpe_x86\mount\Windows /s
xcopy "D:\Program Files\ (x86)Windows AIK\Tools\x86" D:\Projects\WinPE\winpe_x86\mount\Windows /s /Y

No Problems...

I try to add the Swedish Language pack and get error:


D:\Program Files (x86)\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools>Dism /image:D:\Projects\WinPE\w
inpe_x86\mount /Add-Package /PackagePath:"D:\Projects\WinPE\SV-SE\LP_SV-SE.cab"

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Processing 1 of 1 - Adding package Microsoft-Windows-WinPE-LanguagePack-Package~
31bf3856ad364e35~x86~sv-SE~6.1.7601.17514


Error: 0x800f081e

The specified package is not applicable to this image.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

D:\Program Files (x86)\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools>

OK! I know I am building this on Windows Server 2008r2 64bit (English version) I installed WAIK 3.0 and then upgraded with the 3.1 supplement.....

I copied the SV-SE directory x86 to my D:\Projects\WinPE directory and it is the x86 version I am building, so I am a bit lost as to why I can't add to the image?

What am I missing here guys....please!

bookie32

PS OK! I see it now....I upgraded to 3.1 or so I thought but the image is from the original WAIK installation, so I added the language pack from that and it went OK!

So, the question remains if I upgraded WAIK - then why an old image......?

I do wish DISM was better with the error messages it gives you... It should have pointed out the obvious I see in your post:

Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Processing 1 of 1 - Adding package Microsoft-Windows-WinPE-LanguagePack-Package~
31bf3856ad364e35~x86~sv-SE~6.1.7601.17514

But I could have definately missed it if the forum didn't color code it for me! With DISM, it is (typically) just all white text on black background. :rolleyes:

Hi Tripredacus :thumbup

Yep I saw the obvious after I posted....lol

But if I upgraded to 3.1 - then why didn't the image upgrade?
