Sorry, weather issues here.

EWF not working 100%.


I use grub4dos to boot my xp.vhd from HDD. I've manually installed EWF/MGR using files from IMG_XP_36. I now have write protection , but my boot time is about 60% slower than before. At the desktop things are only a bit slower... but definately not faster. I believe I should be using EWF Disk mode or EWF RAM mode, but my status indicates EWF is (incorrectly) in RAM Reg mode. Also, I'm still using the original ntldr.

Questions:

Can EWF work correctly with VHD from HDD?
Should I use EWF Disk mode or EWF RAM mode?
How to change modes?

Below are two snippets I've followed from EWF.txt, and my status display:


USB Boot

EWF can be used to protect the boot partition on USB media.

Use RAM Reg mode protecting removable media, such as CompactFlash, USB, or IEEE 1394 devices.


ewfntldr

EWF NTLDR is required if you are using EWF Disk mode or EWF RAM mode. You can use the standard NTLDR if you are using EWF RAM Reg mode.
