Until there is an "official" guide here at MSFN, this one is a sticky.

@Sgt_Strider:

1. I will finish the Windows PE guide (should be finished next weekend or a few days later)

After that I will have a look at the .exe driver thing again (estimated: in about 2 weeks).

GUIDE UPDATE:

There was the wrong path to etfsboot.com file inside "Create ISO" guide AND inside create_iso.cmd:

Corrected path to etfsboot.com. So changed the following two lines inside create_iso.cmd, from:

IF "%VVersion%"=="x86" SET bootL=%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\etfsboot.com
IF "%VVersion%"=="amd64" SET bootL=%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\etfsboot.com

to:

IF "%VVersion%"=="x86" SET bootL=%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\boot\etfsboot.com
IF "%VVersion%"=="amd64" SET bootL=%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\etfsboot.com


Corrected the path inside "Create ISO" guide, too, from:

oscdimg -n -m -b"%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\etfsboot.com" D:\VistaWork\DVD D:\VistaWork\ISO\Vistax86.iso
to:
oscdimg -n -m -b"%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\boot\etfsboot.com" D:\VistaWork\DVD D:\VistaWork\ISO\Vistax86.iso
and form:
oscdimg -n -m -b"%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\etfsboot.com" D:\VistaWork\DVD D:\VistaWork\ISO\Vista64.iso
to:
oscdimg -n -m -b"%Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\etfsboot.com" D:\VistaWork\DVD D:\VistaWork\ISO\Vista64.iso


Thanks, Jesper for pointing out that mistake!!! :thumbup

Hello coucou!

I appreciate your help in building a pdf. But please do not publish it for the moment, cause I still remove some mistakes from the guide and change the layout a little bit. This weekend I brought out the English partitioning guide, which is more actual and a little bit better again than the German version.

Give me one more week please. Than you may could redo the pdf with actual version. Is that ok?

I want to avoid, that different versions of the guide are in the wild. That could cause confusions and a lot of requests.

Hope you will understand!

Thanks again for your effort!

Regards,
Martin

No problem FireGeier.
Just let me know when you're ready.

Again good job :thumbup

Hello, coucou!

Sorry, have been very busy the last two weeks and forgot to let you know that you could build a pdf now. :whistle:

The guide is not finished yet and new guide sections will be published the follwoing weeks, but I think there will not be to much changes now on the stuff published so far.

Thanks & regards,
Martin

That was a good idea! :thumbup

Great work so far but I would print the whole batch files or remove them completly. For the moment it makes no sense and wasting a lot of space if you just have half of the cmd.

Thanks!

Hey, great guide.

I have a question though.

On the following page it explains how to install applications from removable media http://firegeier.una...plications.html,

but how can I do it so they install from the DVD instead?

cheers

NOTE:

You don't need to store the Install folder to a seperat removable media. You can put it - including the AppsRoot.txt - to the Vista DVD, too. But it's more convenient to have all these seperat files on a USB flash drive in my opinon.



this was on the guide page link you posted youve just not noticed it :rolleyes:

Hello smsc!

You're right. That was a misspelling. Except is right - so WSUSSCAN.cab is NOT needed!

Thanks for pointing that out. Have corrected it now!

Do you get the error with or wihtout using WSUSSCAN.cab?

Martin

@Martin and @all:

Just F.Y.I.

WSIM must be close first to use pkgmgr.exe command.
That's Why I've got an error during integration proces (four posts above) ;)

Hi Martin, this is a really great guide, I would have been completely lost without it. Maybe I need to get used to it but it seems to me that the WAIK is way more complicated than it should be, the principle of mounting an image and adding modules is not that complex but Microsoft have somehow managed to make it feel incredibly complicated.

Anyway, back on topic, I'm stuck! I'm trying to integrate Windows Updates into my install and I'm up to "Step 5: Importing update packages to WSIM". Where is the distribution folder that I'm meant to select? What is BDD? The guide says I can make any new folder but if I do this, I get "The selected folder is not a valid distribution share". Any tips?
