Make_PE3 Program to Create Portable Windows 7 PE

393 posts in this topic

how can i delete all the 42521 files in \mnt7_inst after work?

whatever i am trying, its not posible to delete even one of them :blushing:

access denied.

i could do a safe boot mode, or an liveDistro, but interesting is, why i am not able

to delete anything. i am running win7x64, my files are in d:\make_p3\..

The mnt7_inst folder is the directory where install.wim of your Setup DVD is mounted.

Somehow the program was stopped before it could unmount install.wim as would have been done normally.

Now you can unmount install.wim manually to fix your problem.

If imagex.exe is available in D:\Make_PE3\AIK_Tools\amd64 folder then:

Open Admin Command Prompt at D:\Make_PE3\AIK_Tools\amd64 folder (use R-mouse menu) and give command:

imagex.exe /unmount "D:\Make_PE3\mnt7_inst"

Otherwise:

If Dism.exe is available in D:\Make_PE3AIK_Tools\amd64\Dism folder then:

Open Admin Command Prompt at D:\Make_PE3AIK_Tools\amd64 folder (use R-mouse menu) and give command:

Dism.exe /unmount-wim /mountdir:"D:\Make_PE3\mnt7_inst" /discard

This will have fixed your problem.

I think running the program again could also have fixed the problem, but I advise here the manual way.

Succes and Cheers ;)

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

  • Added - Wow6432Node registry for support of 32-bits programs in 7pe_amd64.iso builds
    Thanks to JFX for making the registry files - Fileselectors work very well now
  • Added - SxS_7PE_SFX_x86.exe added in System32 and made by JFX to solve Side by Side errors - Run manually from System32
  • Added - MSI Installer- working now in x86 and x64 versions
    Thanks to JFX, dera, Kullenen_Ask and Zetup-EXE
  • Changed - Search for PStart and ASuite to avoid cardreader empty drive issue using AutoIt3 routine made by JFX
  • Added - Auto setting of System Locale proposed by ChinaDragon and derived from WAIK if available
  • Added - Picture support in IE8 e.g. Google Maps working now
  • Added - Portable QtWeb Internet Browser and Explorer++ FileManager
  • Added - Wheel Mouse registry - e.g. convenient in Google maps
  • Added - User Pinned Start Menu and Taskbar for Quick Launch of programs
  • Removed - WLAN HotFix for x64 builds - Not needed anymore
  • Changed - Program Version - latest version is now 1.5

The 7pe_amd64.iso version of Portable Windows 7 PE is working now almost perfect, thanks to JFX :thumbup

Known issue to be fixed:

In x64 PENetwork - Sharing by Start of Lanman server fails (some missing file ?)

Requirements and Info - See post #1

Future developments:

Optional Removal of IE8 - to reduce size and moreover it is better to use instead Portable QtWeb from PStart Menu

EDIT August 2, 2010

- Quick Fix of PStart.au3 Error - Please Redownload Make_PE3.exe

Hmmm, is my AIK got corrupted?

Edit: AIK uninstalled, i am still not able to delete this folder.

From the first picture I conclude that in this case Not the right WAIK for Windows 7 was installed,

but your imagex is of Vista WAIK and has date 22-01-2008 (old 6.0.6001 version)

You tried to get rid of the mnt7_inst files by using imagex (old 6.0.6001) from Make_PE3\AIK_Tools\amd64

That did not work.

Try first to use Dism from your x64 Windows\System32 folder (open cmd prompt), using the given command.

Dism.exe /unmount-wim /mountdir:"D:\Make_PE3\mnt7_inst" /discard

Otherwise:

Please retry the described manual unmount using the new imagex tool of WAIK for Windows 7 (version 6.1.7600)

But first you need:

Uninstall old WAIK and Install new WAIK for Windows 7

Rename Make_PE3\AIK_Tools folder to Make_PE3\old_Tools

Start Make_PE3.cmd as admin to collect new tools in folder AIK_Tools\amd64

Take care also that the Windows 7 source from which install.wim was mounted is available (e.g. DVD in drive)

Or if you tried imagex version 7600 that did not work, then try version 6001

If nothing works try other filemanager that is not blocked by Windows OS to remove folder mnt7_inst

May be you can use explorerxp or FreeCommander :unsure:

May be this helps.

If you succeed in removal of mnt7_inst dir then:

Make a fresh start.

Remove old Make_PE3 folder with already collected wrong tools.

Uninstall old WAIK and Install WAIK for Windows 7

Then run the downloaded Make_PE3.exe to extract as folder Make_PE3

Then run Make_PE3.exe or Make_PE3.cmd from Make_PE3 folder and use options to build 7pe_x86.iso

The needed Tools are collected in AIK_Tools folder on first start of the programs.

th_1.jpg?t=1278839588

th_2.jpg?t=1278839778

again reg file errors and 2 dism errors.

I can get now the same reg import error and Dism error 317 as you observed.

It turns out that they ooccur when previously imagex.exe version 6.0.6001.18000 was used.

The so called fast mounting version of imagex disturbs the system.

I can solve the problem by:

Uninstall WAIK (if present)

Reboot

Install WAIK for Windows 7 having imagex version 6.1.7600

Then fresh extract and run Make_PE3 again and the reg import error and Dism error 317 are gone,

using Option 2 to make 7pe_x86.iso without WAIK

Somehow having used the fast imagex version 6001 results in a system where other mounting processes fail.

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

EDIT:

It is even more simple.

After having used imagex version 6.0.6001.18000 then I get reg import and Dism error 317

when using Option 2 without WAIK to make 7pe_x86.iso

Just reboot and use option 3 to remake 7pe_x86.iso

Then all errors are gone ....

So Reboot solves the Dism problems caused by using fast imagex version 6001

For Option 2 and 3 of Make_PE3.cmd then WAIK is not used.

The program needs (2x) to add s:y like this

"%TP%\AIK_Tools\%PARCH%\SetACL.exe" -on "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root" -ot reg -actn ace -ace "n:S-1-5-32-544;p:full;s:y"

The program needs also some changes so that old WAIK does not interfere.

Next build will solve all problems.

Until then don't use old WAIK

i read somewhere that same type of command arrays with a different one between them can result such and error. i can not find that article but googled it with error number and registry i think. there should be some command syntax that can solve it.

i didnt get error after reboot. and it works ok. it looks fully localized in turkish and small enough. will look what can i do for to get better. can work on it if i can build it.

*it boots really fast. how did you disable ie8 first run. i really need that registry stuff. normal windows 7 registry settings doesn't work for me. will check your settings on my winpe. wish they work it is very annoying.

-ok. i saw you merge at load. that settings doesn't work if merged offline.

*how do you put internet explorer and windos explorer to quick lauch? registry settings?

-i found that settings too. thx.

after boot there is no wallpaper. you can try this it works on me. inside a batch file or directly merge to default hiv at build.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\General]
"WallpaperSource"="X:\\windows\\web\\wallpaper\\Windows\\img0.jpg"

oleyy. i merged your internet explorer registry and mine at default key and ie doesn't open first run anymore. and it doesn't merge at boot i merged offline. :thumbup

Good to hear that you can use the program now and have nice results. :thumbup

Copy your file wallpaper.jpg and PStart folder with portable programs in root of bootdrive or any other drive.

startnet.cmd will use PStart.au3 to search for wallpaper.jpg and PStart (or U_XP_SET or ASuite) folder.

In this way wallpaper.jpg is set on desktop and you can make use of Portable Programs.

Your wallpaper reg setting used at boottime does not work for me,

but using wallpaper.jpg outside the build in root of drive is more flexible and works for me.

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

  • Added - bootmgr.exe.mui is added to ISO for Language support at load time - Thanks to ChinaDragon
  • Added - VMP31_7PE_SFX.exe added made by JFX to solve Side by Side errors for VMware-player (see folder SxS_Fix_Win7PE)
    VMWare player can be installed and used now in x86 and x64 PE environment - Thanks to JFX :thumbup
  • Added - MSI Installer files are registered at boottime using startnet.cmd - Thanks to JFX
  • Changed - in case of Windows 7 Setup DVD as source, then 7-Zip is used to extract very fast all needed files from install.wim
    Advantage: imagex is not used anymore to mount install.wim so that Dism errors are avoided and a lot of time is saved :thumbup
  • Changed - tool control and full disk overflow conditions are improved
  • Changed - Program Version - latest version is now 1.6

You can now select three types of filelist for building 7 PE using Explorer Shell setting as:

  • NO - small using BS Explorer Shell
  • YES - medium using Explorer Shell (default setting)
  • + IE8 - large using Explorer Shell + Internet Explorer 8

Requirements and Info - See post #1

winbuilder.net is down so that I could not update Make_PE3 at that location

The first dowload link given above is now from MediaFire with new program Make_PE3.exe (or use mirror)

You can drop folder with x86 drivers in your Make_PE3\PE3_mod\WIN7_drivers\x86 folder

Read more about it in file Customize_Info.txt ;)

The DirMove function of AutoIt3 is causing in Make_PE3.exe an unexpected error in OS x64 environment.

Instead of moving PE3_mod\WIN7_add\x86\1\Windows to PE3_mod\WIN7_add\x86 as asked,

the DirMove is moving to PE3_mod\WIN7_add\x86\Windows :ph34r:

The result is that you get wrong nesting as PE3_mod\WIN7_add\x86\Windows\Windows

which will cause error wlansvc.dll file Not found in building PE

The problem only occurs in x64 OS environment when using Make_PE3.exe :w00t:

The batch program Make_PE3.cmd (run as admin using R-mouse) is doing OK :thumbup

Try to use the batch program for building 7pe_x86.iso in x64 OS environment.

I will make a fix for the AutoIt3 bug for DirMove in OS x64 environment.

Can you please check if the ISO entries is already present in the GRUB entry? When creating several ISO, your tools always adds new entries.

But if you know that you made already an entry, then you could simply copy the new build ISO

and overwrite the previous used ISO, instead of using my tool to create a new gru4dos entry.

Which tool and what do you mean exactly ?

In Make_PE3.exe you can just make 7pe_x86.iso without using the option to install on Target Drive.

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

  • Changed - Make_PE3.exe tested and working OK in x64 Windows 7 OS
  • Changed - hardcoded C:\Windows in driverpath replaced by @WindowsDir and %SystemRoot%
  • Changed - Error handling improved (reg load error detected)
  • Changed - Program Version - latest version is now 1.7

Known issue:

Previous use of imagex version 6.0.6001 (e.g. for making BB-7PE) results in reg load error when using Make_PE3 programs.

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

Solution: simply Reboot before using Make_PE3 programs to remove memory of imagex usage.

Has anyone another solution for this imagex usage issue ?

Hi Wimb,

Make_PE3 is becoming more and more beautiful and complete. :thumbup

Thank you for and also to other who helps you to improve it.

To See My French language in the start of PE7_x86.iso

windows is loading files -- > windows charge les fichiers

starting windows -- > démarrage de windows

with the variable $Parch = amd64 and $Arch = x86

bcdedit is copied in Aik_tools\x86 and to changed the locale language with it, I changed in the following code $Parch by $Arch

If $bcdlang <> "en-US" And FileExists(@ScriptDir & "\AIK_Tools\" & $Arch & "\" & "bcdedit.exe") Then
$bcdedit = @ScriptDir & "\AIK_Tools\" & $Arch & "\" & "bcdedit.exe"

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $bcdedit & " /store " _
& '"' & $PEWork & "\ISO\boot\bcd" & '"' & " /set {default} locale " & $bcdlang, $AIK_Tools & "\" & $Arch, @SW_HIDE)

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $bcdedit & " /store " _
& '"' & $PEWork & "\ISO\boot\bcd" & '"' & " /set {bootmgr} locale " & $bcdlang, $AIK_Tools & "\" & $Arch, @SW_HIDE)

RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $bcdedit & " /store " _
& '"' & $PEWork & "\ISO\boot\bcd" & '"' & " /set {memdiag} locale " & $bcdlang, $AIK_Tools & "\" & $Arch, @SW_HIDE)

EndIf

It works fine for text in french at the startup of 7PE_x86.iso.

By cons, if I start PE7 with grub4dos (chainloader /Bootmgr) the text "Windows is loading files" stay in English ??? any idea to translate it with grub4dos
