The idea was to create a project which can built by very small pieces.
Now it is ready to be published for the first time.
There is a minimum configuration to boot from CD and have only CDFS, no mouse no additional HALs or BUS drivers.
The resulting ISO has a size of 13228 KB (German XP SP2):
PicoXP, you are second winner!
The project starts using the nativeEx core functionality, including hivesFactory.
Some scripts are changed a bit, but full compatible with existing projects.
The scripts to add puzzle pieces, are all generated by the new 'genTxtSetup' program, which uses your source CD. Therefore independent of XP or W2003, you have only the options which are deliverable from your CD.
This includes that the options' captions are in your language, in the sample case in German.
Code of this script:
Description=Here you define BootBusExtenders items to be included in your PE
Author=psc program 'genTextSetup' version 1.0.0
pTextLabel1="ACPI Plug & Play-Bustreiber",1,1,52,80,440,18,9,Bold
pTextLabel5="This Script is generated by 'genTextSetup' using your Source TxtSetup.sif File",1,1,14,160,404,32,9,Bold
IniWrite,%txt%,BootBusExtenders,acpi,"#$qACPI Plug & Play-Bustreiber#$q#$cfiles.acpi#$cacpi"
Attached the current state.
There is still a lot to do:
- Floppy as option
- USB keyboard
- Mouse support
- and some future
- SATA included like the Setup F6 option
- Networking under CMD
- Cmd line regedit
