I wanted to figure out how to boot BOOT.WIM to RAM through RIS instead of the ISO for obvious speed/file size reasons. Using TFTP32, I was able to determine what files it was looking for and copy them from Vista Server. I can now boot PE in about 30 seconds.
Here is are the files I copied from Vista Server:
Contents of pe.sif
[SetupData] BootDevice = "ramdisk(0)" BootPath = "\WINDOWS\" OsLoadOptions = "/RDPATH=net(0)\Boot\x86\Images\boot.wim /RDSDIHDRPATH=net(0)\Boot\boot.sdi /DETECTHAL /MININT /USENEWLOADER" Architecture = "%MACHINETYPE%" [RemoteInstall] Repartition = no [OSChooser] Description = "Vista PE" Help = "Install Vista WinPE" LaunchFile = "\Boot\x86\pxeboot.com" Version = "5.2 (0)"
One thing I had to do was mount the 2nd image of boot.wim (Server v5219) and rename source\setup.exe to setup.bak
