Can the "USB Drive" be an un-protected partition on the protected drive? Or do I have to use a USB?
NOPE, HAS TO BE A USB DRIVE!
unprotected drives, while unprotected, are still cached in the hibernation file
the whole EWF is a hack by microsoft... :)
im sure it will be better on next embedded os :)
Well, my interpretation of embedded is not quite the same as running xp with ewf/horm. In an embedded system you usually have the "image" written in a ROM type memory and any thing that would change would be written to ram. So its like comparing apples to oranges...
Makes sence in my head, but probably not here..hehe
I've used just about all flash drives in my possesion from SanDisk, M$, Kingston, to a couple of generic ones and they all worked.
Okay guys, I need some help. I followed the directions in the first post, and everything seems to be working well... except when I restart the machine, I get this prompt:
What am I doing wrong guys? How can I disable that message and not have to use a keyboard to get past it?Quote:
The last attempt to restart the system from its previous location failed.
Attempt to restart again?
Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu
Continue with system restart
If you've set up HORM correctly, restarting should result in the machine resuming, not restarting, unless you interupt the restore sequence. Iin which case, you'd get the message you described above.
Check your HORM setup.
FYI, has nothing to do with RideRunner...
get HORM working, before messing with RideRunner
You mentioned getting HORM working first. Does this feature of RR also require the HORM.dat file on the root drive? Do I still need to unmount my second partition (or physical drive) before I do a hibernate through RR?
What is this feature actually doing with all the .ini files on the usb drive? I am just trying to get a better understanding of what is happening with my problem. Sorry for all the questions.
Oh and a note I have found out through my trials. My old SanDisk Cruzer Mini (256mb) usb drive does not like to consistently power up when booting into Windows. It will be found while the bios starts, but then shuts off before Windows boots. It will show back up if you remove and plug it back in though. My newer 4GB SanDisk Cruzer Mico seems to work fine every time. Strange.
