I have the following problem:

Using WB075 beta5 (the official beta from winbuilder.net)
with the latest updates from the server http://livexp.boot-land.net/

Try to make a build without ImDisk RAMDrive
in the Define Fundamentals script my settings are:
RAM Drive letter:--
'Settings' Drive:System Drive
the ImDisk script unselected
in Build Model script the option 'Always create ModelRAM.exe' checked on
in the TempPE script the 'Let WinBuilder define the Temp Environment Variable' selected

in the registry of my build I get this entry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\WB-Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceEx\000]
"ModelRam"="hiderun /w cmd.exe /C hiderun /w ModelRam -o#%SystemDrive#% -y"

in my script.project Version=30
after the first run there is this line:
%SettingsDrive%=#%SystemDrive#%

using WB075 beta4
in my script.project Version=30
after the first run there is this line:
%SettingsDrive%=stemDrive

So finally when boot my PE can see on the drive X:
I have no 'Documents and Settings' folder
no shortcuts in Start Menu or on the 'Desktop' etc.

on the drive X: have a folder #%SystemDrive#% containing the 'Documents and Settings' folder and the resShort.exe

EDIT:
Sorry
now seems to me maybe this post is not in the right topic
now suppose it is a WB075 beta issue

Regarding the problem with the big files.
Are you sure that you still have enough free ram? And i don't mean just for the overlay, but also for operations.
Before copying large files Windows increases the buffer/cache size. If you don't have enough free ram, there might not be enough ram free anymore to increase the overlay.

Hi dera,

Yes, I get the same results with the latestest official beta. But it would seem to be a bug that has now been fixed. 075b5e works fine, with %SettingsDrive% variable properly defined in script.project.

Regards,
Galapo.

Can you help me about this?

I did a test for you. Built a LiveXP with BootSDI, ImDisk ramdisk, and your FileZilla Server script. I booted the PE under VMWare server and started the ftp server to point to the ramdisk, which was sized around 58mb. I then connected to the ftp server under my host OS with GetRight Pro. I was successfully able to transfer a 50mb file to the PE's ramdisk.

Regards,
Galapo.

But what for do you need fbwf, your PE runs from ram?
Usually I do not use FBWF. Now made a try with it just for test.
Run PE from RAM in my case means:
I prefer using the method to load a CD .iso image to RAM (using switch '/rdexportascd /rdpath=LiveXP.iso' in the winnt.sif) and for this of course no need the FBWF,
I do not use the 'BootSDI' method, since somehow I don't like the 'BootSDI'.
(Noticed in the past in same case e.g. with my Sigmatel soundcard, where I am not able to fully prebuild its driver with adding files only, NO! recall from my memory not correctly, my problem was with loading storage driver after boot, to get it work I have to update its driver in the running PE via devicemanager
what is somehow not successful if BootSDI is used, but have success if FBWF is used - maybe only adding the 'FltMgr' made the trick, don't know didn't check as yet)

@Galapo
Yes noticed when tried build with the nightly build 5f the '#%SystemDrive#%' issue is gone.

The updated CreateISO script has now been uploaded to the LiveXP server. As the same time, I uploaded a new version of the ImDisk script. This allows for the ImDisk ramdisk to be created before fbwf is started.

Galapo.

Returning to the FBWF,
made one more test with it on a different computer but this one also with 2x1GB RAM
setting FBWF to 128MB (not in %) using driver ver. 2.00.0965.0
used the ImDisk RAMDrive
used a small project (only with PENetwork, Notepad, Opera, MMC, USBSupport, with only the needed network and storage drivers)
and now to be correct used a simple CD .iso
without the 'boot from RAM' method and without the ramdisk.sys and setupldr.bin of Win 2k3 SP1
burning the .iso to CD
and now also experienced exactly the same as before.
Now also had the 70-80MB limit.

dera,
normally i make my tests with 700mb or 1000mb ram with vmware, all reports given on this topic before i used this method.
for you i made a realcomputer test, with a little change:
- my computer Ram 2gb
- setting FBWF to 128MB (not in %) using driver ver. 2.00.0965.0
- used the ImDisk RAMDrive
- used a small project (you will see all enabled scripts in log file)
* i used "add win2k3sp1 setupldr.bin and ramdisk.sys" with create iso script
* after creating iso i put the iso file to root of my hd, i made it ready to boot with winnt.sif-->RAM method

restarte my pc, selected to boot from iso file, bootup

than in my pc, i make a single file (by using izarc (quick compress), i made a "Common Files.zip" file, 138mb, i copy this file to X: , no problem

here is log file
http://lancelot.winbuilder.net/5F/log_20081002_195515.rar
i guess it will be easier to see which scripts enabled and other things

if you agree, i can make anytest with your lead, with ramdisk.sys-winnt.sif method.

ps: normally i make realcomputer tests (driver forge, driver importe pe) with this method.

i hope these help
