Since I am often testing over and over again Windows PE images, I needed a quick and automated way to rebuild ISO images and test them on the virtual machine. So, I am just sharing some of the tools that I use for myself in the hope they can help others too.
If you are using mkisofs and qemu from command line, you might find yourself in troubles to create a Windows PE ISO image by hand. This SDK is a simple script that you can learn or modify for your own purposes and is targeted for Windows PE 2, 3 and above.
What does it do?
- Creates a new ISO image from an existent Windows PE using mkisofs (included)
- Run the newly created ISO inside the QEMU virtual machine (included)
To use this SDK, just place your Windows PE files inside the "winpe" folder and then click on "run.bat" file.
If you wish, you can adjust the settings just by editing run.bat to your desire. By default, QEMU will run with 1Gb of allocated RAM memory for the virtual machine. If you think this is too much for your case, you should edit run.bat to use a lower value.
More features will be added on the feature. I have developed this SDK for my own use and might be adding more features if requested by other developers/users.
