Thanks for this new version!

 

What is the proper way to upgrade without losing all of my current project settings?

 

Thanks!

I have tried using the current download to build an ISO using Win8.1 x86 and x64 Enterprise 90-day eval. It builds and boots OK, I get the spinning dots and a blue screen, then it goes black and nothing happens. I tried booting from VBox as a ISO-CDROM, as an ISO in E2B and on a real system as an ISO in E2B. All same result.

I mount the Win Install ISO as a virtual drive - e.g. J: - use J: as the source and press GO - no other mods.

Sources tried:

9600.16384.WINBLUE_RTM.130821-1623_X86FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IRM_CENA_X86FREE_EN-US_DV5.ISO

9600.16384.WINBLUE_RTM.130821-1623_X64FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IRM_CENA_X64FREE_EN-US_DV5.ISO

 

I tried building on a Win 7 notebook and a Win8.1 PC both give same result.

 

any ideas?

Hi steve,

 

I used a long time those two ISO as en-US source, in addition to my French DVD and others like en-GB (the mui files are split between en-US and en-GB folders).
As en-US, I currently use the REFRESH 9600.17050 Enterprise Eval., with boot and install.wim previously extracted in folders :
9600.17050.WINBLUE_REFRESH.140317-1640_X86FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IR3_CENA_X86FREE_EN-US_DV9.ISO
9600.17050.WINBLUE_REFRESH.140317-1640_X64FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IR3_CENA_X64FREE_EN-US_DV9.ISO

 

Building and start-up are OK here, unless I have not enough Ram, Win8.1se is more greedy than Win8pese.

No problem normally with your Win7 or 8.1 system for the construction. I mainly use Win7 64 bit and from time to time Win8.1 64 bit. 
No real idea ! recently Booty#1 had a similar concerns which came from files permissions automatically propagated in the target folder.

Today's build makes my Win 8.1 system flash up a Smart Screen warning and prevents me from continuing with the build? Anyone else get this?

The 2014-10-17 version is OK.

Sometimes this happens if you are not connected to the internet.

Can anyone show me some differences between PE vs SE?

So what is SE?

SE traditionally means "Second Edition", it became popular many years ago with the second release of Windows98, and in the case of Winbuilder it did exist a Win7PE which later was updated and modified becoming Win7PE_SE (project lately lead by ChrisR), when Windows 8 came out, the corresponding project to Win7PE_SE based on Windows 8 files became (still largely authored by ChrisR) Win8PE_SE.

Little by little the "SE" lost its original meaning, basically becoming the "distinctive mark" of ChrisR's Winbuilder based projects, and when 8.1 came out, the PE part was simply dropped, leading to Win8.1 SE.

 

Check the "history" parts on the project pages:

I'm taking 30 minutes to backup a new installed machine with dism.

Is there any other software I can use to backup?

I like savepart but I can make it run in winpe. Maybe I'm missing any optional package :(

DISM isn't designed for making backups. You definately should look for using something else.

Tks for your info, Jaclaz.

So SE just simply Second Edition? Just a name?

We release a new version of product and then we change name for it ?

I think from PE to SE, it must have some changes or differences, such as how it works or something like that.

 

2 types of constructions are possible in Win8.1SE.
- OS in RAM: to build a lightweight Win8.1 OS in RAM with the Administrator login and the full Windows 8.1 registry. This is the default option.
  Noted that the startup and the administrator logon is faster on a real computer that on Virtual Machine, in any case for me, tested with an usb2 stick.
- PE in RAM: to build a PE5 environment based on Windows 8.1 with the Sytem account
  Some features may not work as desired in PE build type due to security restrictions in Windows 8.1.

 

 

 

So with Win8PE means just PE. And with Win8.1SE, it like "real" OS?

What difference between OS in RAM vs PE in RAM.

Tks.

What difference between OS in RAM vs PE in RAM.

What part of the quote below did you fail to understand?   :dubbio:

OK so, If we choose to build win 8.1 with OS in RAM option so it will be name as SE and build with PE in RAM it will be name as PE?

I try to build 2 Win 8.1 with 2 options. But after load them, I cannot see what features we cannot use in PE but can be use on SE.

Can you tell me them?

And can you help me clearly understand what limited with System account vs Admin Login?

Tks.
