Thank you.

I use SARDU 2 to pack the pe3_x86.iso into a bootable CD and run it in VMware Player successfully, but there are some problems.

The following is my steps:

1. Rename the pe3_x86.iso created by Make_PE3 into Windows_7_32-bit_Repair_Disc.iso so that it can be detected by SARDU as Win 7 Repair CD.

2. Make ISO. To test its stability, I also pack an Antivirus KAV in it.

3. Run the ISO in VMware Player. This is the boot menu.

If I rename pe3_x86.iso to win7pe.iso before packing it in SARDU. I can't find the [Windows Live] item on the boot menu.

But if I rename the pe3_x86.iso to Windows_7_32-bit_Repair_Disc.iso, where can I put the REAL repair disc? :confused1:

The names are managed by software, in this case is based on the name of the ISO.


Have you tried to rename it in win7*.iso

Yes. I've tried to rename it to win7pe.iso and SARDU can detect it as a Win7PE, but I can't find the Win7PE item from the boot menu in Sardu.iso.

Now the only way to have SARDU pack the win7pe.iso created by Make_PE3 to Sardu.iso successfully is to rename it to Windows_7_32-bit_Repair_Disc.iso.

I'm having the same issue. Built Win7PE_SE using Winbuilder, ISO is named win7pe_x64.iso. SARDU finds it and the build completes successfully.
I have checked that all the files ar on my USB drive (\sources\boot.wim, BOOTMGR and win7pe.cd)
But same as topic starter, I don't see an option in the boot menu.

Edit: Like geekenator, I put the win7pe iso straight to the usb drive and edited the pe.cfg, copying the w7 repair disc entry and changed it to reflect the iso's name and it boots.
But I think the boot process should be different right, actually going through bootmgr and mounting the wim.
If I knew the syntax for doing this I would do this myself.
SARDU should be able to, I can't figure why it doesn't?

SARDU check if fileexist WIN7PE.CFG

I tried only a Win7PE who have this file. If this file not exists....sardu dont know Win7PE.

SARDU extract this folder:
BOOT DRIVERS PROGRAMS SOURCES SUPPORT UPGRADE PROGRAMDATA WINDOWS PROGRAM*FILES

SARDU extract this files:
BOOTMGR VISTAPE.WIM VISTAPE.CFG WIN7PE.CD WIN7PE.CFG

This settings I think it's standard. There are other directories and other files to be extracted? now if that file does not exist I create him in such a way that resolves all.

I checked my USB drive and the win7pe iso. The folders Boot, Sources and Programs are the only folders in the iso and are all copied to the usb drive. BOOTMGR and win7pe.cd are also copied. There is no win7pe.cfg.
Sardu does recognize it but only based on the fact that there's an iso with the proper name?
Then where does it go wrong, making the menu file?

In this version if WIN7PE.CFG is missing SARDU's menu don't recognize the win7pe. If you use sardu with USB ...try to make a empty file with name WIN7PE.CFG and USB --> update only sardu's menu

That fixed it.
Created the empty win7pe.cfg on the USB drive and updated the menu.
Now the entry shows up in the PE menu and boots fine.

Just curious, but what's the advantage of booting this way over mounting the iso like you do with the repair disc?

Mapping iso you need more powerful machine. Is slower. The ISO must be loaded into memory.

You might try to place empty Win7PE.cfg file in Make_PE3\win7pe_x86\ISO
so that the required file is build into the 7pe_x86.iso

If this works for you I can let Make_PE3 programs take care of it.

Hope this helps.

;)
