Ok here goes,

1) Download Windows 7 Beta from:

http://technet.micro...r/dd353205.aspx (caution 2.45gig)

2) Write the DVD or mount it in an emulator or use 7-zip to extract the files

Anyway you need the DVD\sources\boot.wim file

3) Using Winbuilder get WimUtil.exe from the Vistape server (found in the Tools section)

Copy this program and the boot.wim file from the DVD/sources directory

to a temp directory (I use c:\WimUtil) also create sub directories 'tmp' & 'new'

You should now have:

c:\WimUtil\WimUtil.exe
c:\WimUtil\boot.wim
c:\WimUtil\tmp (directory)
c:\WimUtil\new (directory)

4) Mount the wim file from a command prompt using:

c:\WimUtil\WimUtil install <enter>
c:\WimUtil\WimUtil mount boot.wim tmp <enter>

Copy all files from c:\WimUtil\tmp to c:\WimUtil\new

Unmount the wim file from a command prompt using:

c:\WimUtil\WimUtil unmount tmp <enter>
c:\WimUtil\wimutil Uninstall <enter>

5) Edit the build directory c:\WimUtil\new adding your explorer & Programs of choice

6) Pack wim file from c:\WimUtil\new using:

c:\WimUtil\WimUtil install <enter>
c:\WimUtil\WimUtil capture c:\wimutil\new new.wim <enter>
c:\WimUtil\wimutil Uninstall <enter>


Adding a shell as default - I use bsExplorer from here:

http://www.kursknet..../bsexplorer.zip

Put the bsexplorer directory in "c:\WimUtil\new\Program Files"

Edit the file c:\WimUtil\new\Windows\System32\winpeshl.ini

to point to your shell: in this example we change:

[LaunchApp]
AppPath = X:\sources\recovery\recenv.exe

to:

[LaunchApp]
AppPath = X:\Program Files\bsexplorer\Explorer.exe


Adding Programs - I use all "stand alone" programs so I won't be much use

with programs that require Registry Entries or install extra system files (sorry)

Programs that work without any installation may simply be copied

to the build directory "c:\WimUtil\new\Program Files" then add shortcuts depending

on the shell you use (bsexploprer above comes with instructions)

Note: If you have a vista build that works you can copy the new wim file
to that build (you will have to rename it)

I hope this helps some people get started with Win7PE and I can't wait for the dev's
to get a builder for Win7

Thanks to all the people here for the great programs and all the help

Sonny

I think step 4):

Copy all files from c:\WimUtil\tmp to c:\WimUtil\tmp

should really be:

Copy all files from c:\WimUtil\tmp to c:\WimUtil\new

Dear All,

I've just made a Win7_PE project.
You can run it with Winbuilder 74, 75beta, and 76.
No bother with any manual jobs.
Select Source folder as Win7 and just Play.
It will make Win7_PE cd for you.
Features:
Support Winbuilder 74, 75beta, 76.
Default shell is BSexplorer.
Addition shell is Litestep and cmd, you can add up to 8 shells. (used PEShell.ini)
Support PEnetCFG and networking.
For more features, try to test with VistaPE scripts. :cheers:

As benefits,
1. you can add most of App Scripts from VistaPE.
2. you can change FBWF cache size to any of it.
3. make your usb multiboot with Grub4Dos.
4. ??????

Just click Play, go and have a breakfast. When you come back, it is ready to use. :cheers:

I'm waiting for some web space to upload them from Nuno.

B Regards,

If your not using wimutil I can't help, try with wimutil

winpeshl.ini isn't in system32

You can create a new file with the above contents, but it should be there (if your using the same wim file, I don't now if the basic pe build created by the waik has this file since its shell is the cmd console, I do know it will work) as this file starts the shell.
It (winpeshl.ini) has nothing to do with other apps.

yahoouk

Great news, :cheers:

I guess I'll try again since
I know I've tried before with the cd and the waik

Well, still no go here,

I can get it to compile if I remove the Additional Files script but it errors on boot (no vdrvroot.sys)

Can you outline the process you used, others have also tried unsuccessfully

Hi yahoouk!

Do you already know that you are an impudent boy (I hope that I do not insult you with my poor English)?

You tell us so great things, but where is the link to download?
(Or did I miss it?)

Peter :cheers:

EDIT: Sorry, yahoouk, you are NOT impudent!
I just saw your other topic about this.

I'm going to test!!!
