WinRoot is a very small project meant to produce a 5Mb bootable operative system based on Windows XP.

It will boot this modified Windows OS into the Native Command Line Interface using a modified SMSS.EXE based on the TinyKrnl project research.


This project is completely based on the excellent work by "Windows OCManage" from the BETA Archive forums - you can find the latest improvements to this development on the respective discussion page here: http://betaarchive.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2772

Yes, but you can't do that here. It's ilegal to edit binaries. (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/thumbdown.gif)

Only the listed commands are available.

But the good news is that you can modify the program to add more features.

I would really like to see something somehing like the cmd.exe from ReactOS bundled inside or an apache server with PHP/MySQL support.

Likely it would be fairly easy to use cygwin ported console apps - who knows? (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

You sure wew are talking about editing binaries in this project?

I thought that it was a "new" program compiled as "Native". (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif)

Only SMSS.EXE is compiled fresh from TinyKrnl - all other files come from MS Windows XP - reason why it is built using the CD as source.

But if I recall correctly - tinykrnl had already replaced all needed components with open source versions - maybe it is possible to replace all files involved in this project with the alternative versions.

If this is case - we'd be able to use the host windows to grab needed files to build a boot disk and use tinykrnl to replace some of the files only found on install CD's.

I have tried to replace them, but they gave me a lot of stop errors.

To get those, the kernel file has to be edited.
