Peter has announced the release of his working multiPE project for the deadline dec 23th, as Nuno wasn't able to build from the experimental version.
Hi people, you seem to be curious about my work!
To give you small hint about current stage.
multiPE 063 can with WBManager choose 4 different configurations due to this contest:
milli contains a reasonable collection of command line tools and networking with internet access by Opera (still under development)
micro is milli without networking (working)
nano is micro without the command line tools (working)
pico is artificially sized down by use of upx, and by removing ressources like AVI, with ResHacker. (working)
I did only some exemplary uses of upx and Reshacker. Enthusiasts of smaller sizes may expand. I personally do not like such "as smaller, as better" when it is only used to save some bytes of the gigabytes empty disk space.
When loading such compressed data into RAM, it expands, and NO RAM space is won.
I cannot attach currently, therefore two links: http://nativeex.exec...croBuild.Script
BTW: The Reshacker files are NOT attached. This script pre-publishing is not multiPE!
Current status with pico:
Build time about 3:40 (Two core intel with 3 GHZ and 4 GB under XP x86)
Boot time in VirtualBox with 256 MB memory: about 80 seconds
(Boot includes full multiPE functionality, like remap drives, screen resolution, HW install, ...)
ISO size 65.9 MB
WIM size 61.3 MB
Sizes with German Win7 SP0 source. German SP1 build can be somewhat bigger, English sources give smaller sizes.
