JFX, thanks for the new version. I just got home from work, but just had to check this new version out. Everything seems to work OK, tested XP setup on my testlaptop. One thing I wonder: what was the new method of installing XP all about? I now feel kind of "guilty" that you had to revert back to the "old" method? I hope you didn't have to do a lot of work for nothing?
It's not that I tested on some weird config or something, I mean 512mb may be not be a lot for Win8 (even though it still installs fine, as you might recall), but for XP 512mb is OK, isn't it? Just wondering what your new method was...
But as a conclusion from me, testing the new v3WIP version, everything seems to work great for installing XP/W7/W8/W8.1 from USB using Win8PESE. Again, congratulations on this new version, I hope it will take WinNTSetup into many more productive years!!!
EDIT: Seems I spoke too soon. After the full XP setup, after the last reboot, Windows doesn't boot and errors out. So I tried again and noticed that -SaveDriveLetters didn't set the checkbox for "Use migrate.inf for driveletter preaasignment". So I manually ticked that box and thought that was it. After another full setup still no luck, no boot. I'm not sure what's going on, looks like the SATA drivers are not installed?
(BTW: as I mentioned before, this exact same setup works with 2.6.x)
