When I try to build the VistaPE scripts I got two halt errors:

RegRead - Failed to read specified key from: [HKLM]Section: [SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WimFltr] Key: [DisplayName] to variable:: [%RegName%]
Halt

Run - Failed to find section [NotConfigured] in file: [%BaseDir%\Projects\VistaPE-Core\Base\00-api-main.script]
Halt

I am running on Vista Ultimate, SP1, 32 bit and using DVD as source.

Hello and Welcome

Download and install Windows AIK
Link to Windows AIK

Install this on your build system

I have my copy of Vista Uilt DVD copied to a folder on C: and Source and Paths points to that folder

I also have windows WAIK installed on my system - Under vistaPE Core - Base - Preconfig - is default location,

VistaPE can pull files from both Windows AIK and Vista DVD as needed

Most scripts files under -Base, Addons, App - Ask for either Vista dvd or WAIK to use that script

If you build with only Vista DVD then all scripts that ask for or need Windows AIK need to be unslected
If you build with just Windows AIK then all scripts that ask for Vistadvd need to be unselected

So best way to enjoy full use of VistaPE is to use BOTH

:cheers:

OK - Thanks. That helped me build the image successfully. But the image I create is not able to boot any PC. I have tried several and created both USB and CD with the boot image. Everytime Windows failed to start. See attached image.

Any idea or suggestions?

Gee, that looks familiar! But I can't think what it was... :poke: ...

What size RAM are the machines you're booting on?

OK. That's not the problem.

Can you post a new log of your completed build?

... might be a process of elimination, unless someone else can identify the error...

I have now tried to build the image from another PC. With the same vista DVD source. The complete DVD have been copied to as NAS share which is used as source.

Still not able to boot from the boot image created. Log file has been uploaded.

Thanks for the log.

Ah-Ha! I remember now where I saw that error: http://www.boot-land...?...ost&p=55603

Your situation is very similar.

It looks to me like the vistape.wim is not being created. Toward the end of your log you will see a line:

IF - File does not exist: [%BaseDir%\Target\VistaPE-Core\vistape.wim] evaluated string: [If,NotExistFile,"%TargetDir%\vistape.wim",Set,%BootSect%,"boot/etfsboot.com"]

(Use ctrl+f Find 'vistape.wim', and Opera is the best to churn through the log - IE7 will probably hang up.)

Seems to me to be the only indication of the problem.

You may have a virus-scanner with its tentacles in the VistaPE-Core folder, preventing imagex from capturing the folder to vistape.wim.

Yesterday I tried to build NEW clean folders with WB 076 and WB 76 new2 , standard and complete downloads
Just like anyone new would try

Last night I tried with WB75 K and got the same results

Nothing booted or worked from download with default settings

I hesitate to say anything because it maybe my server. Hughes.net
I have not tried yet today

Did you keep any logs?

The OP's log looks OK. The warning that bcdedit failed to copy is a worry tho. Are you able to verify that bcdedit might already exist in '\VistaPE-Core\windows\System32\' - hence the error?

The thing about the shellexecutes is that Winbuilder doesn't pick up any errors that may occur in the execution.

A line is definitely needed after the (attempted) capture to vistape.wim:

If,NotExistFile,"...vistape.wim",Exit,"Build Failed" ... or whatever.

BTW. Looking at teh OP's log again, WimUtil was used rather than imagex... not that that matters.

I have now tried to disable the resident shield in AVG Antivirus and afterwards make a new standard build. And that did run successfully and I am able to boot from the build image :poke:

I will now try a full build to see if that goes successfully also. :poke:
