After loooong sessions of S.R.T. (Search-Read-Try) without much success i am here to ask your help.
I am very new to PE world and i am trying the best to understand it enough to reach my goal but i am stuck.
I'll try to be short and clear.
What i need
-to have a small OS, compatible with almost all hardware, new and old, to run repair apps, anti-virus ...you know...this stuff.
-to have it running on a usb pen like if it was an hd so i can save on it the drivers i can "take" from every system i plug the usb-key in.
-Put portable apps in a folder i can reach either running the LiveXp or not (just plugging the usb-key, using the os on the hard disk) and these folder must be readable and writable so i can add-remove apps without compiling LiveXp again and again.
What i can do
Unfortunately my Xp source is not compatible with most of the projects i found here so i can only use my source with no errors with LX.061412 and the result could be nice for my needs
I can build a working LiveXp with the project of above, put it on usb and run it nicely but...
What i am not able to do
the livexp i create (with standard settings) is loaded into ram (i suppose...i am very confused at the moment) but immediately after the usb-key become unmounted and i can't see anything on it because livexp doesn't see it. Also unplugging and plugging it again has no effects.
For this reason if i put some portable app in a root folder i can't load it within livexp.
In the same way, as the os is in the ram, i can't save nothing i need onto it...then... no drivers taken from the host pc are saved on my key
- Is it possible to run livexp as a normal hd, but on an usb key, so i can add files to it, in root folders?
- If yes, which settings i have to change?
- I understood that is possible to take more and more drivers as we use livexp on other systems so that the db of them grows with the use...did i misunderstand? how to do it?
Which format to choose to have a "flexible" system? Wim, Iso, Sdi?
- Is livexp what i need or i need something else?
Thank you in advance for having the patience to read all this post.
EDIT: I found some answers from this thread reboot.pro/17240/ so i deleted what i think i understood
