Hey all ... Frankie here ... BartPE newbie ...
I've been playing around with a variant of BartPE v3.1.10a called HawkPE-42 ...
I've burned the HawkPE-42-CD.ISO as is to a CD and that seems to boot OK and work well enough.
I have found that the driver (Si3132.sys) for the Syba ExpressCard/54 SATA controller I want to use will not install once up in the Hawk/BartPE O/S .. consequently, no attached SATA drives are seen. Not sure why it won't install.
I've also managed to get HawkPE-42 built on to a USB stick and that boots and works well enough as well.
Then I read up on how to place the required driver in its' own folder in the \drivers folder as well as the neccessary edits to oemsetup.txt, both done prior to a build.
Obviously, if I want a CD that will boot and load my SATA driver, I'm going to have to burn again, however, I'm wondering if I can perform edits / additions to the built folder/file structure on the USB stick ... to see what works and what doesn't ... first.
I read Ed P's topic: Adding drivers to BartPE, NIC, SATA, video and have d/l'd DriverPack Mass Storage 9.01 for Windows 2000/XP/2003 (x86) ... but, as yet, have not gone any further with that approach. I want to try adding just the driver(s) I need and see how that goes first. FFF
