What is BB-7PE?
BB-7PE is a Windows PE 3.0 like environment, with bbLean as Shell. (32 and 64bit)
It is a pure rescue system, without multimedia capabilities and without 3D support.
It should be visually appealing and full comfort, with small amount of memory usage.

What is bbLean?
bbLean is the lean version of Blackbox for Windows. It tries to keep balance between features and complexity, to give you some efficient means within a compact shell.

Advantages of this shell
it is small and fast
virtual desktops are also supported
looks very good and the look is extremely customizable

Status of the BB-7PE
32-bit version is stable
64-bit version is RC1

Hi Lancelot
thanks for the tip
but I have added almost everything needed, except for three or four things that are already in work
I hope the project is compatible enough that the user also can add more application scripts

Hi Altorian,

Your project reminded me TeutonPE which has similar goal like yours but for pe1x86 world :cheers:.

I noticed you spend time on making scripts that already exists on above links (which you might notice some useful differences), hence decided inform you that these 2 projects provide very compatible and frequently updated application script for all projects.

Anyway, Here are more tips :rofl:

I hope the project is compatible enough that the user also can add more application scripts

Well, story is, yahoouk started with vistape11 design where api for vistape11 used, but yahoouk left project without integrating capi which is a compatibility measure between most projects (=capi projects).

like you, JFX also continued from yahoouk's multi7pe here
http://www.boot-land...showtopic=10693
but also capi integrated hence it is easy to share scripts in between. (=you can easly check differences to figure out capi integration)

You may also get interested to JFX's project wow64 script :rofl:

except for three or four things that are already in work

Keep the good work, thanks for sharing :cheers:

Hi Lancelot
thanks for the tip with the Multi 7PE SE project
I had not seen
I will be at the core files from Multi 7PE SE Projeckte change, as there already has been done so much work it is not all that smart to invent new again
I hope I get this no problems when I use the work of you

Hello .. Great Project :rofl: :rofl:

On a WIN7 x64 host I built your project and tested in both x86 and x64 builds

X86 version built and booted fine – (in VMware)

X64 version (which I know is experimental at this time), it rebooted –(In Vmware) :cheers:

I remember something JFX was having trouble and setting a time out for PE SHELL ???
Maybe you will find it in his work

Another way might be to make a stand alone (BB-7 shell script) that user could add to a Win7PE project?

Thanks for making this project available for testing…… :cheers: :rofl:

hi
a separate shell script will come
I want the shell script very strongly expand, so that you can customize it with your own extensions, menu, styles and wallpapers to their needs

I have now created a stand-alone shell script from BlackBox for Windows
I have tested with win7pe_SE and it works very well
all necessary files are loaded from the win7 DVD
I hope you enjoy it

Advantages of this shell
it is small and fast
virtual desktops are also supported
looks very good and the look is extremely customizable

New version is now available

Innovations:
new core is a custom multi win7pe_se
this should also run 64bit
the shell has been optimized
the menu has been optimized
the programs and the shell should now cooperate better

some new programs added
Explorer+ + (integrated into the shell)
Universal Viewer (integrated in the system)

Some programs removed
Super Finder XT (superseded by Explorer + +)
QDir (superseded by Explorer + +)

Hi

When using your full package BB-7PE

Tested and built using
Vista x86 and all went well…
Win7 x 86 all went well

With a Win7 x 64 build there is some differences but I know this is still experimental

One thing with Package down load,, is PNP I could not get my network card detected
With Your Shell script added to a Win7PE_SE build I do not have PNP problems

How do I change time??? is there a way for me to adjust clock?? :cheers: ;) B) :) B)

Hi PaPeuser,
thank you for the test!
what are the differences that exactly?
it works at the x86 and x64 versions?
I had solved the problem that you can change the resolution, adjust clock is then the next

what is missing, what is to add?
is still much to do but I am confident!

BB-7PE Package Win7x64 build

Grub4DOS – says Win7PE not BB7PE
Alpha bar is at top of Desktop
On left Quick launch bar? – Nothing is displayed, no shortcuts
UniversalViewer – error hhctrl.ocx is missing
Hardware Wizard failed to launch
Partition find and mount – error Device driver service can not be started

Changing the resolution works. :dubbio:
PNP works, Network card is detected - QT web works,, B) :cheers: B)
Over all this is fast and small around 280mb with a x64 build :merc: :) :cheers: :cheers:
I will test more later,, Thanks :)

When you offer an update package can you add the date to the file name not just the link?

I get confused easily ;)

Hi PaPeuser,

UniversalViewer – error hhctrl.ocx is missing

Extract this to \Projects\BB-7PE\BB-Core
+
Extract this to \Projects\BB-7PE\Apps\Accessories

Partition find and mount – error Device driver service can not be started

Try this one here

I hope both works on BB-7PE Win7x64 build now :dubbio:

hi PaPeuser,
I have no new stand alone script :cheers:
I have a new BB-7PE package :dubbio:


But the new stand-alone script
will you continue to put on it to the Windows explorer?
or am I going to decouple from BB-7PE?

BB4WIN + Explorer + + = slim and fast
BB4WIN + Win Explorer = big but perhaps more adjustment possibilities

BB4WIN + Explorer + + = slim and fast
BB4WIN + Win Explorer = big but perhaps more adjustment possibilities


Preferances will be up to user and how they use their PE,
I like slim and fast to run antispyware or antivirus and just to check out a computer quick
I like Explorer or Total Commander, So i am not use to Explorer + + yet... :dubbio:

Offering shell script gives user both Multi Win7PE_SE and BB_7PE... with all add on script options.. but its big :cheers:
A user can quickly switch back and forth between Win7PE-SE desktop and BB-7PE
Using your Full Package is fast and light... Explorer ++. Qtweb ;) :cheers:

I like the options the way they are for now.. I am sure you will hear more as people try BB-7PE

Very nice job!

The builder was in German for some reason, but the fields were pretty obvious so it wasn't a big deal.

I would add BGINFO from Sysinternals (http://technet.micro...s/bb897557.aspx) to paint some tech information on the desktop, otherwise looks great.

hi SuperTechie

I do not know if works bginfo
The black box uses a suitable desktop
I must look at the times and test it

PS: I have just looked at it and I'm afraid it is not really compatible
I could create a script, and reconfigure all but I do not think it is worth the effort
bginfo with an overlay is better, in the nature of Everest

It does work on a plain jane Vista/7 PE disc that I built using the WAIK. I think it is very small, so it shouldn't add that much time to the boot process (maybe 1 second?)

I think if you look around there is a add on script for (bginfo)
I know bginfo was a script i used with VistaPE, i just cant find anything anymore :cheers:

Then someone moves post around, I give up :cheers: ;) :dubbio:
