With the wide range of project available here, you have to be more precise, which project you want/need help for.
It is also not clear, from your post, from which media you want to boot.

:cheers:

Generally, you want a known working PE image before attempting to boot from flash, can this ISO boot in VM or from burned CD? If not, please provide the log.html from your build, zipped and uploaded to free host and linked here. If the image is bootable by these methods and only USB is problem, please describe how you setup your USB boot disk, which tool or script used; if grldr, please provide menu.lst entry etc. Also, confirm USB drive is recognized as bootable by accessing your machines boot menu (usually F10 or F12) to see if it's listed.

My liveXP is booting in VW in ramdisk but error:

INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or misssing, status 2 setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit!

what is "grldr" bootloader ?

log from winbuilder when it has finished compiling. ? I now try copy paste livexp cd all files to usb flash, is this wrong. ?

My computer boot is setup to usb and usb hdd and i can chose form esc button which media to boot. I think there is not a problem, problem is what i build and which files are i missing! :(

OK, you seem to be already stuck with the very basics.

- To get a USB-Stick or -drive bootable, it needs to be prepared in a certain way. It is not bootable out of the box.

- One can not simply copy OS files from place A to place B and expect it to work.

Start off by building a LiveXP that runs successfully in a virtual machine. If you have trouble with that, Amalux is your best chance of help.

Once you have a LiveXP that's known to work, you can move on to step two, getting it on a USB-Stick or -drive.

Don't try to do too much at once. Slow and steady wins the race!

:cheers:

Yes, in project folder after build has finished. Archive it (zip, rar) and upload to any free service like http://www.mediafire.com/ and post the link here.

The txtsetup.sif missing could be caused by not allocating enough memory in your VM (or any number of other reasons having nothing to do with your image).. Is it possible to just burn the ISO to CD and try on a real machine?

1) May I suggest using the smaller project for testing until you work out these issues. ;)

2) Please DO NOT attempt to boot from external USB (flash) drive until you have successful ISO booting from CD or VM (see 4 below).

3) Please confirm you are using unmodified (no nLite or other), full (retail), not OEM (supplied with PC) source for Winbuilder to use.

4) Please confirm that you have at least 512MB memory allocated in your VM and that you can successfully boot other PE boot disks in this VM.

5) In your log, it shows "D:\sourcewinxp\litlesource\LXC.102011\" as your base directory, this is problematic; your base folder should be at the root of the drive e.g. "D:\LXC.102011\".

I tried project LXC.102011 now its is booting in VM problem with drivers!

I don't understand what this means, it is booting or it isn't? Problem with drivers? (see 4 above)

Which files i need to copied to flash to boot it. mybe i need software other to do it. ?

(See 2 above)

My log files from last build who is now booting in VMachine:

I changed ram size also error i think file livexp is corupt or wrong compiled. << this is not last project

Hmmm, so last build is now booting in VM? Seems contradictory but maybe I misunderstand, possibly a language issue..

Using minimal windows xp from wiinbuilder it self ?

2) Please DO NOT attempt to boot from external USB (flash) drive until you have successful ISO booting from CD or VM (see 4 below).

I have successful ISO booting in VM.

3) Please confirm you are using unmodified (no nLite or other), full (retail), not OEM (supplied with PC) source for Winbuilder to use.

Yes I am using unmodified not OEM version windows xp with sp3

4) Please confirm that you have at least 512MB memory allocated in your VM and that you can successfully boot other PE boot disks in this VM.

Yes I allocated 512 in VM and successful booting.

5) In your log, it shows "D:\sourcewinxp\litlesource\LXC.102011\" as your base directory, this is problematic; your base folder should be at the root of the drive e.g. "D:\LXC.102011\".

root of HDD or root of flash ?

I don't understand what this means, it is booting or it isn't? Problem with drivers? (see 4 above)

I compilde in one computer but tried to other mybe this is couse of driver problem. ?

(See 2 above)

Hmmm, so last build is now booting in VM? Seems contradictory but maybe I misunderstand, possibly a language issue..

Yes last works ok but only driver problems[becouse other computer]my aneglish is not very well mybe misunderstood.

No, using LX http://www.mediafire...ajsvncca4dyza9a instead of LXC (Complete) project.

I have successful ISO booting in VM.

VM only? Can you boot on real hardware (burned to CD)?

Yes I am using unmodified not OEM version windows xp with sp3

OK, good.

Yes I allocated 512 in VM and successful booting.

There seems to be nothing wrong with your build, is it only external flash boot that is your issue? If so, I can help you but please confirm ISO boots from CD on real hardware first.

root of HDD or root of flash ?

Root of HDD for building your project. Once you have a known working ISO that can be burned to CD and booted on real hardware, I will tell you how to move the ISO to an external drive.

I compilde in one computer but tried to other mybe this is couse of driver problem. ?

It's important we keep issues seperate, answer the questions above and hopefully we can move to the next step ;)

Yes last works ok but only driver problems[becouse other computer]my aneglish is not very well mybe misunderstood.

What exactly is driver problem? Be as specific as possible, only occurs on certain hardware; only in VM or only with hardware or both; EXACT error message you receive.

What I should do next cipie ISO files to flash ? Or something individually copied or program use. ?

Please confirm above before we go to next step :)

Sounds good :)

Let me know which program you need, I'll try to find you a script or portable.

As for booting ISO from flash, take a look here http://reboot.pro/4111/ under section 'Mini-Tutorial: Booting PE from Hard Drive or USB Flash Drive.' and ask if you have any questions ;)

Let me see what I can find...

Try the DriverImport -> System option, if it improves we can probably automate it. Video is probably never going to be 100% as good as in full OS but usually you can get it 'good enough' on most machines.

Well, I found (link removed) which works alright in LiveXP. All the others I've tried are too big and bloated to work well in PE; there is http://inkscape.org/download/?lang=en and the portable tests good in PE as well ;)

Out of curiosity, is that included in Hiren's Boot CD? :dubbio:

Or is it just good ol' "plain" Warez? :unsure:

I'm not sure what you want, you can add ubuntu to your menu.lst with something like:
title Ubuntu LiveCD

find --set-root /xpe/ubuntu.iso

map /xpe/ubuntu.iso (0xff)

map --hook

root (0xff)

kernel /casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/xpe/ubuntu.iso quiet splash --

initrd /casper/initrd.lz
http://reboot.pro/13104/

I'm not sure about the other way around, you should post a question in the appropriate forum; I'm sure others will know more/better how to do what you want ;)

As for adding any portable program to PE, there is full explanation given in tutorial http://reboot.pro/4111/ under section Adding Portable Apps to Your LiveXP, W7PEX and Win7PE_SE - Let me know if you have question.


@Wonko

Probably the latter, I didn't research the program; just did a search for portable. I'll remove the link just in case ;)
