Make_PE3 Program to Create Portable Windows 7 PE

402 posts in this topic

Hello, slightly off topic but can anyone tell me where I can down the NT6.X fast installer.exe as referred to in pstart (USB_XP_Setup\NT6.X fast installer 091220.EXE)

I have downloaded a 7zip archive (NT6.X_fast_installer_100219.7z) but it does not contain the ...091220.exe that I need.

Hi

Am I right in thinking that there is no HTA support on the Make_PE 3 software. I created my customised boot and its not supported. When I do mount and add it to the boot.wim file and then unmount it doesnt like the following boot up and it errors out just before the windows 7 logo shows up.

If I swap it for the backed up boot.wim it works fine but without HTA support.

Is there another way of updating a customised make_pe 3 boot disk ?

Just to add, I can get a new WinPE3 file created and boot from a USB Hard drive but as soon as I overwrite the files on my current 1TB usb hard drive they will not boot up

Thanks

Dicko

You can try to modify Make_PE3.cmd to give HTA support.

Uncomment the two rules by removal of ":: "

:: Dism.exe /image:"%PEWork%\mount" /Add-Package /PackagePath:"%PETools%\%ARCH%\WinPE_FPs\winpe-hta.cab"
:: Dism.exe /image:"%PEWork%\mount" /Add-Package /PackagePath:"%PETools%\%ARCH%\WinPE_FPs\en-us\winpe-hta_en-us.cab"

Then use Make_PE3.cmd with option 4 to make pe3_x86.iso using WAIK

It was not build in .....

For boot problems try WinContig to make ISO on USB-HDD unfragmented.

EDIT:

Instead of adding HTA Package to pe3_x86.iso you can simply use IE8 Setting in making 7pe_86.iso to give you HTA Support.

When IE8 is added to the build, I can e.g. run WPI :thumbup

Only adding HTA package did not work for me to run WPI

Change Explorer Setting to IE8 (in cmd use 2x E) and use Option 2

  • Changed - Audio_Fix is used only to install audio driver and is not needed anymore to fix the registry
    Install of Audio driver is integrated in Driver_Fix.cmd - Thanks to JFX for solving Audio issues
    http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=23931&st=115
  • Added - Runscanner to edit Remote Registry - Thanks to paraglider
  • Added - Video Driver support - Thanks to JFX for list of needed files and for registry key
    http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?showtopic=23931&st=119
  • Added - Boot Images are collected in folder MULTI\images for making MultiBoot CD/DVD (use CD = YES or CD box Checked)
  • Added - Make_MULTI_ISO.cmd batch program for easy remake of MultiBoot ISO files from folder MULTI for making CD/DVD
  • Changed - Program Version - latest version is now 2.2

Thanks to JFX for solving Audio issues in 7 PE and giving the working procedure:

Create the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\MMDevices\Audio\Render key on build time

and give access to everyone (SID S-1-1-0) which allows AudioEndpointBuilder in PE to modify the MMDevices key.

DriverPack Vista (x86) Graphics A - folder G_A\ATI\4 is used in my case as Win 7 PE x86 video driver

http://driverpacks.net/driverpacks/latest

The video driver can be installed after booting with 7 PE ,

but you can add also the video driver folder to Make_PE3\PE3_mod\WIN7_drivers\x86

so that Dism will add the driver to the build 7 PE (extra 12 MB)

In the latter case Driver_Fix.cmd will install the video driver.

Boot Images are collected in folder MULTI\images for making MultiBoot CD/DVD (use CD = YES or CD box Checked)

Adjust the grub4dos boot menu to your needs by editing file menu.lst in folder MULTI

Folder MULTI contains also PStart folder with Portable programs and Snow wallpaper.jpg

You can add Linux Parted Magic pmagic-5.5.iso to folder MULTI\images

http://partedmagic.com/download.html

Add VLC Media Player Portable to your MULTI\PStart\Progs folder

Download from http://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/vlc_portable

The files and structure of folder MULTI is universal and can be used for booting from HDD/USB or CD/DVD

Use ImgBurn to burn CD/DVD from the created MULTI-dd-mm-yyyy.iso files in MULTI_ISO folder.

In case when booting the 7 PE ISO Boot Image with Grub4dos from HDD or USB,

then copy PStart folder and wallpaper.jpg as normal from folder MULTI to root of HDD or USB boot drive

Requirements and Info - See post #1

Portable Windows 7 PE - Wireless Internet + Audio + Video Driver are working

Registry files in Make_PE3_plugins.exe were causing the problem that harddisk drives were invisible in 7 PE

when the required program files for the plugin were not supplied by the user.

I have updated already Make_PE3_plugins.exe to overcome the problem.

Thanks Rootman for solving the issue. :thumbup:

*** Update of Make_PE3 package to Create Portable Windows 7 PE ***

  • Added - Enable to see new connected USB drives in My Computer
    - Registry tweak in PE3-USER.reg - Thanks to JFX
  • Added - HotSwap for Savely Removal of Hardware - Thanks to JFX
  • Changed - Program Version - latest version is now 2.3

Known issue:

Previous use of WimFltr v.1 by e.g. imagex version 6.0.6001 (e.g. for making BB-7PE or W7PEX)

would result in reg load error when using Make_PE3 programs, but the program will detect and STOP before building 7 PE

It means that when Make_PE3 has mounted boot.wim with Dism, that reg load of PE registry would fail.

Solution: simply Reboot before using Make_PE3 programs to STOP WimFltr v.1

So...what's the minimum amount of RAM to fire up this bad boy? Is it still 512 MB (like a basic PE build) or is it something north of that?

*** Update of Make_PE3 package to Create Portable Windows 7 PE ***

  • Added - Theme Support - available now in all Explorer and IE8 versions
    Download and install of new themes only possible in x86 IE8 version
    Thanks to JFX for making AutoIT3 scripts to patch winlogon.exe and to start themes with UX.exe
    http://forum.sanbarrow.com/viewtopic.php?f=85&t=13
  • Added - Windows Sounds like Device connect are working for all Explorer and IE8 versions
  • Changed - Broadband Support - PPPoE is working now for all x86 versions
    Thanks to nu852 for testing PPPoE support - ADSL Connect
    http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=11852&st=326
  • Changed - Program Version - latest version is now 2.9

PPPoE Support requires winpe-pppoe.cab + Lang package from WAIK for Windows 7

See WAIK folder Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\WinPE_FPs

- pe3_x86.iso is made using WAIK for Windows 7, it means packages are used directly from installed WAIK

- 7pe_x86.iso is made without using WAIK, but packages are needed in Packages\x86,

which is auto filled from installed WAIK, or you have to add there the PPPoE package manually.

Additional cab packages can be added to Packages\x86 folder for install in 7pe_x86.iso

Requirements and Info - See post #1

Download - Make-PE3

Don't forget to add your nt6 video driver folder to Make_PE3\PE3_mod\WIN7_drivers\x86

I've never been able to successfully get the driver_fix.cmd to run automatically on boot, even making absolutely no changes to the build files. Is there anybody else having this problem?

Network connectivity functions fine after I run Driver Fix, but I'd like to do it automatically so that the only time I need to interact with the system is once network connectivity is fully functional.
