Hello everybody, I'm new in this Forum and my English is very basic so I hope you can understand me...
My question is relative to a BartPe on a 8GB Compact Flash (from now called CF)
In my office, I had several PC's with a CF slot embedded on the motherboard. I was able to put the BartPe with Acronis
True Image plug-in on it, to restore an image file on the primary hard-disk when something goes wrong.
Everything was fine, no problem at all.
The very important thing was that after booting from the CF (after change boot order in bios), I saw on my system :
a drive called "X" : seen as a CD-Rom (about 250MB),
a drive called "C" : the rest of the CF space (about 7,5GB)
a drive called "D" : my hard disk
The good thing was that the BartPe system (X) was seen as a CD-Rom, so nobody could delete files or write on it .
To build my CF, I used a software called FlashBoot, I think you know it, to convert a BartPe CD into a Flash memory.
Now my problem. I bought a new pc with a different motherboard (the CF slot is always present).
Using the same CF, now I can see only the first drive X as before, but no more the rest of the free space of the CF .
The hard disk is seen as C .
I tried with PeToUsb software and it works, all the space is available, but now all the files are visible, including the BartPe
system files and that's no ok for me, I preferred the previous situation (X as a CD-Rom image so nobody can access it).
I tried also to divide the CF in 2 partitions and it works, but if I insert the CF in a usb card reader, I can see only the first
partition. I would not like to use that special driver for make the system to see the CF as a fixed disk.
I just want to go back to the first scenario, what could be on my new mobo (sata type but I put the right drivers in
PeBuilder) that's different from before ? I tried to change several parameters in bios, but no success.
Thank you in advance for any help .
