Meegopad booted up with mouse and keyboard working and running True Image 2014. Image backup went fast.

Win8PE_SE booted using ZalmanVE300 Virtual BD-ROM drive. Should work from USB boot.

Win8PE_x86-2.ISO = booted with mouse and keyboard support.

Win8PESE82_Builder.exe

This more or less should mean that the device is GPT:

@ TheHive

As I can read it is UEFI x86 but I would like to know if it is normally intalled or Wimboot mode.

Also as I saw in your pictures Windows is in NTFS partition, as I have cheked Windows 8.x installer can read from exFAT partitions during install, it can be a good idea to verify if it can be installed on exFAT partition (using WinNTSetup) to avoid the excesive wear of NTFS. It doesn't work, see: http://reboot.pro/to...e-2#entry191299

 

Edited to add new info.

Yeah I saw that post. I havent used WinNTSetup yet but i was looking at a video on how to use it and it seems easy enough to use.

WinNTSetup 3 - Install Windows 8.1 from ISO

It should be then possible to boot Win8PE SE and easily reinstall a fresh copy of windows 8.1, that is since the meegopad has been factory activated. Will find out in a sec if its activated or not.

I will try to test a new build of Win8PE SE X86 from scratch and see if the new release update will boot with Meegopad. I still wonder why the Win8.1PE SE wont boot properly like the Win8PE SE. Something must not be properly implemented with the UEIFE booting in Windows 8.1 Project. I will post some pics so yall can see what i mean by not properly booting with Mouse and keyboard support. Is ChrisR still around here somewhere.

Might need to recreate win 81 pe se from neew release and with defaults. The one tested was an older dated build.

 

Will for now boot Windows and see whether its activated

 

Lol! now Windows wont boot. :dubbio:

Goes into repair mode. then gives option to restart but shuts down instead.

Will go into advance options - Trouble shoot - Refresh your PC - See if that allows booting to windows.

 

Forgot i made 2 changes in bios

Advance - Execute disable bit  default was enabled but i had disabled it for test.

 

 

AUTO shutsoff

 

Press F7 while start to select Windows manager -Goes into Automatic Repair

 

bios- Advance  security configuration -  default was enabled but i had disabled it for test. Still turned off.

 

Goes into repair mode. then gives option to restart but shuts down instead.

Will go into advance options - Trouble shoot - Refresh your PC - See if that allows booting to windows.

 

There was a problem refreshing your PC. No changes were made.

It asks for Admistrator password for refresh but i dont have one yet. so presses enter

Maybe Windows 8 pe se Disk management did something

 

Might have to use True Image Backup made earlier

Download and expand WinNTSepup in a folder ( I use WinNTSetup3.75 folder)  at least once in your PC to let it download the required files from Internet, download an copy BOOTICE, put the x86 version in \WinNTSetup3.75\Tools\x86 and the x64 in the equivalent folder, now copy the WinNTSetup3.75 folder to your USB where you have your Win8PE SE, boot from the USB stick, find the folder and open WinNTSetup (x86 or x64 as your Win8PE SE version) and from it open BOOTICE then open BCD in easy mode to see how it boots (Usual install or Wim Boot).  Make notes of this just in case. As you have the install.wim in the windows images folder (in Images partition) of your MeeGoPad, you are able to reinstall from it to the Windows NTFS partition and recreate all the booting partition (Fat32) too (Usual install or Wim Boot),  you need to format ONLY the Fat32 and the Windows partition before procede, DO NOT FORMAT the Images partition.  Then select in WinNTSetup the install.wim, boot partition and the Windows partions and depending from what you saw in BCD you select how to install (normal or Wim Boot). Let it finish and reboot to your Bios and put every thing as it was before doing any changes, save and boot. Then the system config. should start.

 

Make sure you do not change the partions offsets when formating them, you can do it with BootIce or your  Win8PE SE as you prefer.

From your post: Cant find the BCD in easy mode

 

Open BootIce go to BCD Tab, select Other BCD file, go to the MeegoPad disk and in Boot partition should be a folder Boot open it and look for BCD.

 

From your post: Which are the offsets?

 

ID, Start LBA, FileSys. and Total sectors are the important caracteristics.
