    XP Embedded & EPIA 800

    Do you think you would benefit from a tutorial on how to do an XPe image for the Via EPIA 800???

    Can easily be adapted to the others, I could even help with integrating Media Engine with it
    Car: About to change

    Player: VIA Eden, 256Mb RAM, Bootable from 64MB Compactflash, 40GB MP3 HD, IRMan, Wireless Keyboard, 5.6" In-dash TFT, 12v DC-DC, running Windows XP Embedded with Wireless LAN, Mobile Internet, GPS Sat Navigation.

    I am interested, just concerned on how much money it will take to get a working (licensed) version of XPe that doesnt expire after 120 days.

    You can get a development copy that expires after 120 days for a few bucks, but I can't find any other information on XPe (as far price)

    This is rather simple actually, I've done it a couple of days ago.

    - You make the image following Ms instructions / tutorial
    ( you can download an Xpe support package from Via, so you only need to hit 'Build' )
    - Copy these files to your FAT or FAT32 formatted Epia system drive,
    - Run bootprep,
    - Reboot.

    For convenience, I have W98SE installed as well, to ease copying of the image over the network. The boot menu is used to select between W98 and WXPe on startup.

    You can create the bootmenu by modifying the boot.ini file.
    - Set the timeout to a reasonable value, eg 30 (for 30 seconds),
    - Add a line under [Operating Systems]: C:\="Windows 98",
    - Copy the backup file from bootprep (boot*.old) to bootsect.dos.

    BTW. You can separate the installs by using different directory names, I used XPeOS, XPeApps & XPeDocs. Don't get temped to place those dirs into a dedicated directory (like \XPE\WINDOWS etc). The bootloader does not accept that... took a while to find that out

    what are they tryin to charge for it? i saw on the MS site the development tools were $999, but the runtime lisences were not quoted.

    I know some MS employees, who get mad discounts on the regular products, such as XP pro ($30).. I'll check and see if i can come up with a lisence for XPe..
