I am trying to make a Windows 7 Live disk

I have successfully downllooaded the script but the ISO creation process halts midway due to the errors shown in the log.
I have downloaded the Complete Win7PE_SE script.
Then when I click on play to create ISO image, midway during the process, it shows a message to download an API and then an error that it could not be downloaded. Then the process stops.

The log file is available at:

Please guide me as to what I should do to rectify this problem?

thanks for the readymade project.


I created the image using Windows 7 disk but it did not run in Virtualbox.
It shows an error that a file is corrupt.
The WIndows 7 disk that I used is working fine as I installed WIndows 7 on virtualbox using the same disk.

What can be the issues now?
I am trying to make an ISO image once again. I'll post the log file after that.

This is the log of the last time I created the ISO image which is not working in Virtualbox
The ISO image is just 47MB large. IS that fine?

???
The log tells that the original folder contains 427284343 bytes of data, and the ISO size is 427671552 bytes.

That looks ok.

Where do you get your "47MB" from?

I think you mean 407MB and that's fine, however, I just tried a build with your system/source configuration and ran into an issue with snapman.sys. This would only affect the Acronis script(s). I'll try to have an updated project later today. Sorry for trouble.

I am sorry for the error. It was 407MB only.

I got the same error.
This is what I get:

Sory that I cannot help any more.
But Amalux saw an issue with snapman.sys. I'm sure he can debug your win7Pe issue.

...issue with snapman.sys. This would only affect the Acronis script(s). I'll try to have an updated project later today. Sorry for trouble.

Update: The snapman.sys error can be resolved with the following patch:
If,%SourceArch%,Equal,x86,Begin

FileCopy,"%pTextBox1%Driversx86snapman.sys","%target_sys%drivers"

FileCopy,"%pTextBox1%Driversx86snapapi.dll","%target_sys%"

End

If,Not,%SourceArch%,Equal,x86,Begin

FileCopy,"%pTextBox1%Driversx64snapman.sys","%target_sys%drivers"

FileCopy,"%pTextBox1%Driversx64snapapi.dll","%target_win%SysWOW64"

End
However, this is not the only issue you'll encounter with Acronis scripts in '64 bit' PE and many other limitations as well. It is far better to use a 32 bit source for your PE, these are available for download free (legally) and the resulting PE works just as well for booting 64 bit machines as it does for 32 bit. I have yet to discover a benefit or improvement from using 64 bit sources to build PEs but there are many downsides.
