Here is my PC setup:
Windows 7 Professional
Here is what I am trying to work with:
Bart's PE 3.1.10a (WinXP SP3 source files)
XPE 1.0.7 + QSoft RAMDisk AutoResizer
I've tried to follow several postings:
... and several others, closed those tabs already though...
I've even added the following to my xpe-mmc.inf as suggested by paraglider:
Basically I am trying to accomplish running explorer as the shell for my PE.
I can create the ISO with no issues (7 Warnings though). However, when I boot from the ISO in virtualbox I get the following errors when AutoResizer loads:
"RamDisk driver unsupported or not present"
"Error getting info from RamDisk driver (code 259)"
Obviously the RAMDisk driver isn't loading and I can't seem to find a solution to this.
I then get the several errors with browseui.dll, shdocvw.dll and urlmon.dll. Searching in these forums and other places about these DLL issues has lead me to use AutoResizer to load everything in memory so they can be accessed.
After clicking the several messages pertaining to these DLLs and not being able to open log files... it starts to create my preferences and settings for the user and then I can see the explorer taskbar load, but then it disappeared immediately after loading... leaving me with only a background and nothing to work with.
To help further I've got the following plugins enabled:
DriverPacks.net (Graphics A,B and C/Mass Storage)
Sherpya (Saw in another posting to rename the folder to something like zzzzxpe-1.0.7 so it loads last, so I did this and it didn't help.)
-Nu2XPE ShortCuts Converter
-PnP & Multimedia
HWPNP: Perform Plug and Play Hardware Detection
VMWare Plugin v1.2
VbRun: VB 5 and 6 Runtimes Support
To help eliminate issues with other plugins, I reverted to a basic PE Builder plugin set and only am using XPE with all other plugins that came with Bart's PE disabled.
Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.
