No activity since February.  Is this project still active?

 

I am having an issue with the check box, “Ask 'Hit any key to boot from CD'”, in multiPE 71, PEFactory.  Unselected it still puts bootfix.bin in the boot folder and during boot I must hit any key to boot into MultiPE.

I tried with building a PE1 and PE3 with unchecked ckeckbox: bootfix.bin is not on the CD. Therefore the question is not asked during boot.

 

Please give the (zipped) log.html. I think, as a new member you are not allowed to upload to the forum directly. You may choose any web service providing upload space, and telling the URL here.

 

The project is still active, but  I spend most time in the new WinBuilder generation, which will be published soon.

Thanks,  the log file is at http://www.freeuploa...13715707531.zip

 

I found that after boot.tmp folder is recreated, Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData\boot is copied to boot.tmp/boot and that had the bootfix.bin file in it.  I added the following after line 421 in PEFactory script and it was removed:

 

If,EXISTFILE,%BaseDir%\Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData\boot\BOOTFIX.BIN,FileDelete,%BaseDir%\Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData\boot\BOOTFIX.BIN,NOWARN

 

I ran the process several times with the box checked and unchecked and seems to be good now.

Thanks, maybe I have had a small black out somewhen.

 

But to really decide what is wrong, I need the log of a COMPLETE build, without your patch.

I removed my patch, made sure 'Hit any key' was checked, and hit play to run the full process.  bootfix.bin was put in UserData\boot
http://www.freeuploa...13716450491.zip

 

Next I unchecked 'Hit any key' and hit play for another full run.  bootfix.bin was still added.  I checked the 2nd log and UserData folder was deleted early in the process, but bootfix.bin was still added.

I have no issues with the links when I click on them.  Were you able to get the one I posted yesterday?  Do you have a preferred upload site I can use?

Peter, try again now, earlier the whole server was offline, now it works.

I am attaching them, just in case.

In the second log there is no report about copying bootfix.bin to the target.

 

Can you please uncheck all non-MultiPE scripts, and tell whether the issue still occurs.

 

Peter

bootfix.bin is not copied to the target but userdata\boot is and bootfix.bin is in that folder.  That is why I added a line to delete it from Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData\boot.  I unpacked a fresh multiPE_71 and ran the same tests above.

 

First test with Any Key checked:

http://www.freeuploa...13716648591.zip

 

Second test with it unchecked:

http://www.freeuploa...13716648592.zip

 

bootfix.bin shows up in target in both tests.

Here seems to be really an issue with some historic data, I have to fix ...

Please delete Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData manually before the "unchecked" build, and report the result (no log necessary).

From the log UserData directory gets deleted:

 

  IF - Directory exists: [%BaseDir%\Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData] evaluated string: [If,ExistDir,%ProjectTemplates%,DirDelete,%ProjectTemplates%,FAST]
  DirDelete - Deleted directory [%BaseDir%\Workbench\multiPE_Win7\UserData]

:good:

Thanks! I'm going into the code more in detail tomorrow.

 

Maybe the "DirDelete, ... FAST" got some uncatched troubles ...

 

Did you already test without all non-MultiPE scripts, to be sure that the issue is not influenced from one of them?

Yes, the last set of logs I sent was a fresh unzip copy with no added scripts.
