  • XPE on CF process

    Hello , i started building an image XPE for usage on CF .

    i fDISK the CF on target system , then set partition ACTIVE and formated it.
    copied BOOTPREP do it an RUN it . No errors so far.

    then i wend to the developpment PC and copied my XPE image over it.

    The CF boots , but after 3 seconds it gives me the following error.




    is there anyone that knows what the problem could be ?

    Yes, its "cannot boot from hard drive" kind of error.
    So check following:
    a) what is four CF format FAT or NTFS? Did you bild support for it to your XPE image?
    b) if you some of coponets that handles HDD volumes is missing. "Volume manager" is typical. I hope this is correct component name.
    c) Did you include First boot agent and its parts into your build?

        bootprep /dc did not solve my problem

        FAT32 is used

            like mpattonm wrote: did you include FAT32 support in your image? are you using EWF? I'm guessing you are since you're installing on a CF card, so did you follow MSFT's steps to create a RAM Reg mode EWF volume? It's basically what my hack does. FBA isn't going to be able to create another partition on the volume for EWF RAM mode if the CF card is marked as removable, that's why you need to use RAM Reg mode.

              Are "Mount manager" + "Partition manager" and their other corresponding components build into your image?

                first thing i gonna test is the same IMAGE on a real HARDDISK , if that is not working to then there are missing components or something. if it thus work then my IDE to CF adapter maybe the problem.

                but its to cold today to test it in the car

                    Okay did some testing ,

                    I putted the IMAGE from the flash on a HARDDISK (850 meg)that in the past did work
                    result SAME error as on the CF , so my image must be BAD i guess.(missing components or something)

                      okay , i made a new XPE image with FAT32 support only , MINLOGON and NTLOADER

                      put it in a harddisk , image booted op OKAY , FBA runs.

                      put the same image on CF , CF boots put PC resets at windowsXP logo screen.

                      i reseted several times and suddenly the CF booted up to the FBA but then froooze.

                      i Put the image AGAIN on the CF and this time i plugged the CF in de other side of the DUAL CF- to IDE convertor (now SLAVE) everything went just fine.


                      BUT SLOW very very SLOW CF(sandisk 256meg)

                        FBA is going to be pretty slow. It's best to run FBA on your HDD then transfer the post-FBA image to the CF card.

                            You did follow MSDN's instructions for setting up a RAM Reg EWF volume, right? Unless your CF card is fixed disk EWF won't work on it so you have to use RAM Reg.

                            Just curious, but are you seriously planning to use XPe for your OS? It's such a hassle and expensive. For a lot of the front ends out there your image is going to end up being about the size of an nLite XP install anyways.

                              This is the exact same behaviour I using an nLited XP Pro. I have yet to figure it out.
