Posted 16 Jan 2010I created a working BartPE rescue disc earlier this year but have some questions.
What was the first version of BartPE to include USB 2.0 support?
I want to ensure I used a build version that came with USB 2.0 support. I've read these two arguements:
BartPE requires a third-party USB 2.0 driver plug-in.
Or, BartPE comes with USB 2.0 support, and all I need to do is insert my rescue disc, shut down my computer, insert my USB 2.0 flash drive, power up my computer, boot from the rescue disc, and my computer will automatically detect my USB 2.0 flash drive.
But how is it possible for a computer in BartPE's environment to detect a USB 2.0 flash drive after installing a new, blank hard disk? Doesn't a computer require USB drivers to be installed, or does BartPE come with USB 2.0 drivers?
On all the machines I have run my builds on, not one has required a special driver or plugin. On almost all of the systems that had USB 2 on them I ran at USB2 speeds. There was a few that were off the wall older models that did not but all test I have run thusfar have shown USB 2 on a wide range of heardware and age of systems.
Posted 16 Jan 2010Off the top of my head, I would say that the location you are saving the ISO to might be a problem. There is a reason why we say to put everything on the root. The builder and apps associated all require paths with no spaces in the name. So anything inside of "Documents and Settings" will cause the build to fail. Point your output ISO to your build directory or simply place on root. Once it is built you can then move to wherever.
Hope this helps!
Posted 16 Jan 2010The only way you can do this is using a Ghost 8 version of ghost. Prior only works in DOS. 9 to current must have .Net installed in the build and that is not happening here.
Posted 16 Jan 2010Has anyone made a Portable Apps plugin? I installed it on my computer and then added the Portable Apps folder to the build. Portable Apps opens, but none of the applications work. I couldn't find one in the fourm. Someone said that they got it to work, but didn't say how.
If you look at the portableapps.com site for the apps you want to include, several have certain files that are required to launch. One such app is Firefox. It all depends on the app what is needed. Most will work but a few need special attention. As for a plugin... I highly doubt there will be one. Again looking at Firefox... Simply isolating the profile for one, no two profiles will have the exact same folder and file structure as is required in the plugin. I could be mistaken how the ini file lists files but if I recall, they need to have a folder list and point to where it will be. Just to hard to create this for every app on that site.
Your best bet is to look at the PA site and find what is needed and then just include the files in the build or leave them on a USB key and run them from there. Either way...
Posted 9 Oct 2009Rawk!! I will remain here but I just won't have time to participate in any dev work or beta testing. Will keep in mind the other sites and I will try to check them out shortly. I had lots of fun helping out John and his wacky tests and checking the new versions prior to release. My new job though doesn't allow me the ability to download and install stuff even though I am on the admins list and such. Dang gubment rules... Let alone use the project. Again, dang gubment rules... School went well for the first part. Walked away with an AAIS and a 3.95 GPA. Going to continue in the winter for a BSIS and maybe get a double major with a business focus. Looking to get off the front lines and into management.
I hope all works out well here. I still recommend peeps here to use the project and all the temp that I trained in my last company all still use the project so I know I have brought at least 50 people to use the project and who knows how many they have brought into the fold.
If you want to bounce something automotive or tech related, hit me up on E-Mail. I will get to that faster than I can here.
