I've been using winntsetup for a while with great results.
New problem when installing Win7 or Vista.
Mount Installation drive as,option is unavailable.
Tried v2.1 with same results.I'm puzzled never had this happen before.
Tried from inside xp win7 and pe with same results.
This option is not supported for Vista installations, but for Windows 7 and later it should be avalible.
I'll take a look at it.
I decided to test this by booting to a vanilla WinPE v3 ISO (ver 6.1.7077) from a USB flash drive and the trying to use R-Click to mount an XP ISO - but nothing seems to happen after I select the ISO from the file dialogue window and click Open.
I also tried running imdiskinst.exe and got a 'can't start because crtdll.dll is missing' message.
Is WinPE v3 not supported?
Yes all versions of WinPE are supported.
This seem to be a problem of the imdisk installer. You could add crtdll.dll from an x86 Windows 7 in the same folder as imdiskinst.exe or unpack it with 7zip and run install.cmd manually.
Seems Olaf has ruined the silent install anyway with that msgbox pop up.
I'll make 2 new install packages to fix this and also add support for vanilla x64 Winpe.
P.S. When installing Win 7 to VHD you say
- requires Windows 7 as OS and Windows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise or Server 2008 R2 as Source
Why not 7 HP or Pro? What is the restriction?
All Windows 7 versions would support VHD booting, but it's a license restriction.
During logon there is a check made for Kernel-NativeVHDBoot, think through SLGetWindowsInformationDWORD.
You would get an error and stuck on logon screen, if you use a lower edition than Ultimate.
I proplery could fix that
, but some people would have a problem with this.
