Windows 7 AoE - What does CCBoot Do?
Posted 22 July 2015 - 08:09 PM
I experienced lots of frustration trying to get Windows 7 diskless booting using AoE and gave up for a while. I decided to retry yesterday after checking out rebit's various posts mentioning the use of CCBoot and finding a link to the CCBoot version rebit appears to have used in his/her own tests (here).
rebit's download package contain's ccbootsetupclient0722.exe - on installing it, it appears to be version 2.1 build 20110622. Direct download from the ccboot.com website - http://www.ccboot.co...pclient0722.exe.
Anyway, using this CCBootClient version I was able to diskless boot Windows 7 SP1 32-bit. I'm very pleased, but would like to achieve this without installing CCBoot if possible - anyone know how?
P.s. I (re)tested using the most recent CCBootClient version (ccbootsetupclient20140222) - this just demonstrates that newer and bigger is not always better as Windows 7 failed to boot!

I came to the same conclusion a while ago.
Windows 7 + AOE fails.
Windows 7 + AOE + ccboot succeeds.
I have the feeling that this is not an extra binary that makes is work but rather a registry key.
Tracking the registry changes made by ccboot could be a good start?
