I'm a new member in this forum.
Working in a IT service, I've to build a "LIVE XP" solution, but as it's not my speciality.. I'm looking all "HOW TO" on the net. and found your community.
In this topic I do not ask for a Step by step process to get the LIVE XP.
But, just the confirmation if that I'm thinking about LIVE XP is right, or if I'm totally wrong.
First, the need :
As many company, we must leave XP OS for Win7. Even almost all our software can work under Win7 few of them can't run...
I proposed a solution "XP MODE" in order to continue to work on these software.
But, our security team does not like this solution and ask for another one "LIVE XP"...
This LIVE XP, have to get our software pre-installed.
Second, What is LIVE XP ?
For me, LIVE XP means a CD/DVD or USB containing an XP OS able to run in RAM.
The user plug his media, boot on it, and can work directly on this XP, without impact on the HDD (where Win7 is installed)
But, when I read some topics/documentation on the Net, I figure out that the most common apps "BartPE" is not made for "working" but for "FIXING" some issue on the real OS of the PC..
Third, WinBuilder :
Also, I've read here about another tool called "WinBuilder", I read (quickly) the Tuto "Newcomer's Tutorial - LiveXP, Win7PE & Portable Apps!" Honestly it's not totally clear to me..
I know I've to get an RAW XP Os image, (I will get it soon)
I ran WinBuilder, and got a command line interface. but on Winbuilder website I can see some dialog box (GUI).. there is another source in Graphic mode ??
So, Am I right ? is an LIVE XP the right method to "work" on XP in RAM ? without any installation, and not just for Repairing system ?
Thank you for your help.
