So it took me awhile, but i finally got a working BartPE setup.
But i have come across a stumbling block. Let me give some background..
At my job we require Serial(RS232) in order to perform some communications in the testing enviornment.
There are alot of machines which are being released that do not have serial ports.
So i came up with the idea of rather than requesting that harddrives always be sent or created w/ XP, why not create BartPE on a USB thumb drive and use that.
Problem is, as far as i can tell there is no support for Serial ports, onboard or USB. I attempted to communicate over the systems onboard serial port with no success, and likewise with the USB-Serial adapter.
I believe i installed the USB->Serial adapter drivers correctly, basically the .sys files into system32 and the .inf's into the INF folder...
Is it possible to install 3rd party drivers into your BartPE install? I would assume that you can but any help would be appreciated. Im hoping that this is possible..
