How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

I've built the Ghost SRD using WinPE 3.1. It seems to work fine with one exception. When you use the Virus scanner, the update locater does not function to browse for new files. I think this was also a bug on the original Ghost 15 SRD that was fixed on the Ghost 15 SP1 SRD. If someone knows the fix, please post it. It's probably a registry entry or something.

Link to WAIK SP1 update - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=696dd665-9f76-4177-a811-39c26d3b3b34

You need to have the original WAIK for Windows 7 installed and copy the files in the downloaded ISO file over the old ones in Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools. It also looks like the original WAIK for Windows 7 has been taken down. The link that used to be for KB3AIK.iso is not there anymore. Unfortunately, this is what contained some of the tools. Hopefully it is just a mistake and will be fixed.

Thanks Red.

I assume you need Windows 7 SP1 in addition to the updated WAIK?

Re: How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

I don't have SP1 yet. Basically, the wim files are updated. It looks like you can no longer download the needed tools that were included in KB3AIK_EN.iso.

Re: How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

For all the testing and stuff you do, you really should consider a TechNet membership.

The Technet direct (download only) can sometimes be found for around $250 a year.  Thats the renewal rate but I have seen discount codes that give new members the renewal rate.

They released it yesterday to MSDN and Technet but I forgot all about it.  They already have all the integrated builds posted as well as the SP.

I wonder what the real differences are. I don't really see anything that interesting that has changed. Most of the updates are probably already installed from Windows Update.

Re: How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

The only real new features are a couple things for virtulization.

I see it more as a "update rollup" than a service pack.  I tried a couple of the betas and didn't notice anything, I'm just curious to try the integrated build to see if there is any noticeable change in performance.

I would have rather had a XP SP4

Re: How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

Screwy, that link I posted now points to the original WinPE 3.0 download. Now, I can't find the link to the update files. Someone over at MS keeps messing with the download links.

Re: How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

That is strange, yesterday I remember it sating something about windows 7sp1 and server 2008R2

Re: How to build the Ghost15 SRD on WinPE 3.1

Looks like Microsoft has fixed the download links...
