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:

 

 

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"

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

I modified the BCD file:

i'm not really sure why you are doing this, can you explain why you are not using MDT or SCCM to create boot wims ?

I noticed a very curious detail:

If I visualize the contents of the original BCD, this is displayed:

How do I avoid that the {7619dcc9-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f} identifier is construed as the {default} alias in the device and osdevice elements?

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

for your uefi devices are you using an architecture boot wim (for example 64bit) that matches the architecture of the device (64 bit) ?

Yes.

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

 

 

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?

 

Thanks
