It seems you have not the correct directory for filecopy.

The %BaseDir% is not inside project.

Better you use %GlobalTemplates%\MultiWim  (\WinPE\Workbench\Common\MultiWim) for the boot2.wim

Not forget to select Grub4Dos-Menu in Multiwin

Ok, I have the *.wim files in \Workbench\Common\MulitWim.  They are called acronis_2013.wim, acronis_echo.wim and acronis_br11.wim.  In the MultiWim section I have the paths set to the following:

%GlobalTemplates%\MultiWim\acronis_2013.wim

%GlobalTemplates%\MultiWim\acronis_echo.wim

%GlobalTemplates%\MultiWim\acronis_br11.wim

 

I am getting the following error:

(MultiWim.script) FileCopy - Failed to copy [%BaseDir%\Workbench\Common\MultiWim\acronis_2013.wim] to: [%OtherOS_Target%]: The directory name is invalid.

Any more ideas?  The files are in the correct location.  Not sure what to do next.

Ok,I think I have the build error figured out.  Apparently I was using an older copy of MultiWim as mine did not have the drop down to select the grub for dos menu.  Anyway, it built successfully and I can see the three wim files on the flash drive in \Boot\IMG.  When I boot from the flash it shows the three options on the menu but no matter which one I select it always loads the same version of Acronis.  I've checked inside of the three wim files under \Program Files\Acronis to make sure I built the individual wim with the correct Acronis version and they all look correct.  Any ideas to what I am doing wrong here?

Have you now BOOTMGR2...4 in the root of your Flash and in the menu.lst links to that different BOOTMGR?

The correct MultiWim is v11

Ok, I am using v11.  Yes. I have BOOTMGR, BOOTMGR2, BOOTMGR3, BOOTMGR4 in the root directory of the flash drive.  The menu.list shows the following:

title Win7PESE
chainloader /BOOTMGR
 
title Win7 with Acronis Echo
chainloader /BOOTMGR2
 
title Win7 with Acronis BR11
chainloader /BOOTMGR3
 
title Win7 with Acronis 2013
chainloader /BOOTMGR4

That sounds good

If you look inside the BCD files (\boot\BCD2...$), you see the device entry to your Wimfiles

 

bcdedit /store [Path to BCD2..4]

 

Maybe your filename for wim file is to long. (I'm not shure if more than 8 character supported)

Ok I renamed the files to abr11.wim, aecho.wim, a2013,wim and made the changes in MultiWim.  I rebuilt the project and created a new flash drive.  It is still not loading the corresponding wim when I select it from the menu.  It simply loads the default one every time.  I assume you mean run bcdedit /store y:\boot\bc2?  If I run that I get the following:

x:\windows\system32>bcdedit /store y:\boot\bc2

Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier              {bootmgr}
description             Windows Boot Manager

displayorder            {default}

winpe                   Yes
ems                     Yes

Any ideas on why it is not wanting to load the correct wim file?  I "think" I have done everything correctly.

Yes, all thinks are ok. I have a last check.

If you rename the wim filename on flash that you will select at boot, an error occur at boot.

So you can see, if the correct wim will boot.

I renamed the \sources\boot.wim on the flash drive and then tried to boot from the flash drive and select any one of the three Acronis menu choices.  I get 0xc000000f.  The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.  I also tried the reverse to make sure the acronis wim files would actually boot.  I copied for example \boot\img\aecho.wim to \sources and renamed it to boot.wim and then every menu choice I select boots and loads Acronis Echo.  So it's definitely loading the default no matter what menu choice I select and the wim files are good.

Ok, I think the BOOTMGR2...4 is not correct patched to use BC2..4. Can you attached Logfile now (more reply option). I will look in the evening. I'm not at home at time.

Ok. You can see the log by clicking here. I still cannot upload attachments to the forum unless I am doing something wrong. I just uploaded it to a skydrive account. Let me know what you find. I would really like to get this to work, I just can't see what I am doing wrong.

Hi Johnb175,

I have found the reason for problem. You use WB80. This version has a problem to interpret the line in MultiWim that patch the Bootmgr2...4.

Use please the version 82 from Winbuilder and it works. 

But I will change the MultiWim to work also with WB80

I'm not sure how that is possible.  I am launching Win7PESE82_Builder.exe.  I do see a Win7PESE80_Builder.exe in the directory though.

For some reason I am also noticing that Hiren's Tools is not showing on the PE desktop or start menu.  It is selected and the iso does exist in %GlobalTemplates%\Hirens\.  Does the new WinBuilder prevent it from showing?  I know using the ancient WinBuilder version that I was using before it would put an icon on the PE desktop and you could access all the tools.

I have patched the MultiWim script to run also with the old WB080

 

here you can download the v12 in advance:

 

Attached File  zMultiWim.script   36.16KB   639 downloads

I have check this and can't reproduce the problem. If enabled 'create Desktop shortcut', the shortcut is available on the PE-Desktop.

You can check the shortcut after build in %TargetDir%\Windows\system32\win7pe.cfg

I finally figured it out this morning.  On my base project (not the initial wims that I created with MulitWim), I had hadn't select Hiren's.  Since Hirens does not load into RAM it was not on the flash drive.  Apparently if the folder does not exist then the shortcut is not created.  My error.  I just overlooked it.  On a positive note almost everything is working perfectly.  MultWim is awesome!  One last thing I would like to figure out.  The Acronis Backup and Recovery 11 script is not registering a service called "Acronis Managed Machine Service".  It works with the old WinBuilder I was using from 2011 but not with this latest one.  Someone else posted about it and said that it was the changes in the Macro Library script but no solution was offered.  Is this something that a scripting guru like yourself could look at?  I've tried looking through it but don't really understand what I am looking for.  I posted it here.  Thanks again for all your help.  I really appreciate it.

Do you plan on adding support for True Image Home 2014 by Acronis?

Yes, I check and test the new version in the near future.
I think the premium-version is needed.

Hey 2aCD,

 

have you checked if your script supports True Image 2014? I have a Premium Version here and a first try was not successful. Any help would be appreciated!

I've got a question for these, who use both Acronis editions 2013 and 2014:

Did you notice a difference between the 2 versions concerning GPT support?

 

My impression was that ed. 2013 had issues detecting a GPT disk using Acronis PE.

In this case, if this was improved for ed. 2014, a WinBuilder plugin for it would be nice.
