  • Windows PE 5.x boot problem

    Hi

    With Windows ADK and its MakeWinPEMedia utility, I created an ISO image of Windows PE 5.x but when I start it, it does not boot.

    His BCD is:

    Code:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Deployment Tools>bcdedit /store "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Windows_PE\ISO_debug\x32-x64\Boot\BCD"

    inherit                 {globalsettings}
    default                 {default}

    Where am I wrong?

    I created the iso image with MakePEMedia utility and put it on a CD.

    Now, if I boot from CD with some computer (with BIOS or UEFI), I have only a black screen. Why?

    Thanks

      Without knowing what steps you took to create the bootable ISO then we have no way of knowing where you went wrong. Again despite multiple replies to your post we still get INSUFFICIENT information about your issue.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.

          FFS, start at the very beginning and tell us what steps you followed to START to create the PE boot disc. You know, what did you do at the Command Line to initiate the sequence. What was the next step. It is no good for any of us to look at your posted BCD file because we do not know if you have got the initial part of the process correct and you refuse to provide that information. Reposting the BCD info a 100 times will not change what we don't know you have done.
          1 1 was a racehorse.
          2 2 was 1 2.
          1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

              Windows PE 32/64 bit works properly with computers that have the BIOS; while with those that have the UEFI, the CD does not boot and the screen remains black. Why?

              Thanks

                After several attempts on different computer, I noticed that the only case in which the computer does not boot from my CD is the one in which this computer is a 64 bit with the UEFI.

                So, how do I solve this problem ie how do I make this CD so that it starts even with the 64 bit computers with UEFI?

                Thanks

                  Perhaps, I discovered the problem:

                  I noticed that the efisys.bin file of Windows PE 32 bit is different than 64 bit.

                  So, how do I create a CD of Windows PE 32/64 bit fully working? Or rather, how do I create a efisys.bin single file?

                  Thanks

                    To create an iso that works in any case, I thought to rename the two Efisys.bin in efisys_x32.bin and efisys_x64.bin and then use the command

                    Code:
                    oscdimg -o -u2 -udfver102 -bootdata:3#p0,e,b"<Windows_PE_Path>\Boot_files\etfsboot.com"#pEF,e,b"<Windows_PE_Path>\Boot_files\efisys_x32.bin"#pEF,e,b"<Windows_PE_Path>\Boot_files\efisys_x64.bin" "<Windows_PE_Path>\x32-x64" "<Windows_PE_Path>\ISO\Windows_PE_x32-x64.iso"
                    to create the ISO.

                    For you, with this method, I can reach my goal?

                    Thanks

                      I think I have understand what does not work: the efisys.bin and bootmgr.efi files are different in the two editions of Windows PE 5.x.
                      So, there is a method to recreate them so that they work with both editions so that my CD will not have more problems to start with any type of UEFI-based computer?

                        Apart from the fact that editing system files is certainly breaching every license agreement under the sun, do you really think that it will be possible to combine two totally different processor architectures into one - and if it could be done, that no-one has done it before.

                        The rough equivalent is building a cheap car engine that can run on petrol and diesel fuels interchangeably (and before anyone points it out, I am not talking about the M1 Abrams engine, which fails the first criteria)
