Well, it gives me a stick that boots VistaPE (11), which is far better than any of the other methods that I have tried. Including Booty's script.

{ABE} The flash drive shows up as drive F, with all my programs in the programs directory ... but there are no shortcuts on the start menu to any of those programs, or on the desktop. I am pretty sure that the same ISO gives me shortcults when booted in Virtual PC ... WTF?

you must not skip hardware detection during vpeldr start or run "Reload VistaPE settings" from start menu (shortcuts will be created only if program exists)

I did not skip hardware detection: I saw it running in the command window. I will try the reload.

{ABE} Reloading VistaPE settings worked, so I now have a working USB boot stick. But I don't know why it didn't see the programs at boot.

VistaPe in usb fat32 with slax, gparted, etc .... error: /boot/bcd

Structure of the USB key:
U:\Programs (from Vista PE)
U:\vistape.ima (300 MB)
U:\vistape.cd (0 byte)
U:\menu.lst (grub4dos configuration file)
U:\grldr (from grub4dos)
(note: I used grub4dos, so I do not need U:\bootmgr file).


Contents of vistape.ima
a:\bootmgr
a:\boot (3.4 MB)
a:\sources (210 MB)

Notes:
1) The vistape.cd file in the root of the USB key is important so that VistaPE loader/wpeinit.exe can detect the
system drive (containing \Programs directory).
2) The vistape.ima file must be contiguous in order to be mapped by grub4dos. You can use the 'contig' utility from sysinternals.com.
to verify/defragment the file. An easier way is to format the USB key and copy this file (all files in root) first, and no deleting files from the key
to avoid fragmentation.
3) To build the vistape.ima:
o use fsz (dsfo/dsfi package) or mksparse (on NTFS) to create a vistape.ima file with size about 300 MB.
o Mount it as floppy, drive letter A: with ImDisk.
o Format a: with FAT file system
o Copy bootmgr and the 2 directories \boot, \sources (from your VistaPE) to A:\
o Unmount a: (ImDisk)
o Use WinImage to set boot sector of vistape.ima (boot sector properties) to Vista Bootmgr.
o Copy vistape.ima to U:\ (root of your USB key).
o Verify that U:\vistape.ima is contigous by using the command: contig -a -v u:\vistape.ima.
4) One could try to include \programs inside vistape.ima (creating bigger floppy image), but it does not seem to work
(wpeinit did not find programs) and also it is less convenient, since by putting \programs in the USB key (writable) rather than
inside the (read-only) vistape.ima, modifications to \programs are much easier.

Content for U:\menu.lst:

CODE
title VistaPE from floppy image
find --set-root /vistape.ima
map /vistape.ima (fd0)
map --hook
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)
