    Im not really using the image builder for XPE. I used Nlite to strip down a SP1 windows XP then replaced a few of the OS files with XPE componets. The most important is the "enhanced write filter" so that the embedded OS does not write to the CF drive. Too many writes will nuke the drive, and in stock form windows really like to write a lot to the drive. Paging file is also gone.
    Thanx for the answer, I thought that this might be what you're doing.

    I am playing with XPE itself, but nLite has surely made it easy to create a very similar runtime environment to XPE - and it is easier to get it up and running the very first time.

    EWF is a very nice addition to your setup, will surely save your memory from wearing out. Oonce your software is installed, and configured, you do not need any additional writes to drive anyway, so good idea this.

    I am awaiting my IDE-CF adapater, and the 150X CF disk from USA. Probably another week, and I will start a new thread to give feedback wrt my progress.

    Stay cool.

    Updated Hardware Finished!!!

    Well I spent the greater half of my saturday off to get all the hardware updates done. HOLY crap the xenarc is way harder to mount and is in more pieces than the super. But it's worth it, the xenarc is way brighter, crisper, and the 5 wire touchscreen interface is much more responsive. I like this way better. The LCD itself is HITATCHI. I spent a good 10 hours on mounting the TS, LCD, all the controller boards, then wiring it. Also got the flash drive adapter mounted. It was like doing this whole project over again because I had to move everything, drill more holes, figure out what will/won't fit. But its done. Now starts my favorite part. SOFTWARE!!! Ill keep ya updated on that. Embedded OS, welcome to your new home:

    Yes, buy the correct blade for metal, and make sure to support the metal properly, both sides of the cut. This is important with <1mm sheeting, as it may deform/bend while cutting.

    Soz for the off-topic

    Yep A jig sure can cut sheet metal. A trick I use is to put 2" styrofoam underneath it to hold it on a plane while you make your cuts

    Im actually still working on getting the flash drive to work. As of yet I could not get her to boot. Ive got some more time this week im going to try a different card and config. The OS image itself is perfect and runs hella fast on a normal harddrive. I don't plan on hibernation, I just do cold boots.

    It WORKS! I figured out the problem. My cheapie CF disk got nuked in my initial attempts of an embedded install. Anyway I got good in DOS bought the sandisk and BAM! first try got my XPE image up under flash. EWF running good. This is hella fast and stable. Thanks to Sfiorito for the helpful info. So yes car PC 1 is back together and better than ever. Im running freeway with the roadfuse skin now. I also have IG3 and all the maps on my solid state drive. Works PERFECT! Damn im happy. Should have the stang back together by tomorrow.

    Im wondering with the EWF running can I just to a hard shutdown now? I mean nothing gets written to disk so i don't see why not. . .
