dmio/ftdisk PE1 driver question
Hi,

I notice extra lines under Enum under Livexp for ftdisk and dmio:

CODE
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\dmio\Enum]
"0"="Root\\LEGACY_DMIO\\0000"
"Count"=dword:00000002
"NextInstance"=dword:00000002
"1"="ROOT\\dmio\\0000"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ftdisk\Enum]
"0"="Root\\LEGACY_FTDISK\\0000"
"Count"=dword:00000002
"NextInstance"=dword:00000002
"1"="ROOT\\ftdisk\\0000"


While I do see/understand entries for Root\dmio and Root\ftdisk, I don't see why the LEGACY_FTDISK and LEGACY_DMIO entries are being created.

I am not able to see/figure out how/why these are created.

Would appreciate if anyone can shed light on this.

Thanks.

Win7PE script for TrueImage Seagate/WD Editions
Here's a script to use the free Seagate and Western Digital versions of Acronis TrueImage 11 in a Win7PE (Winpe 3.0) project. Hope this is useful.

I have adapted the script originally made for self-use with livexp. Have tested only with W7PEX and Win7PE_SE (without shortcuts).

1. Please download the respective software from Seagate or Western Digital and install on your Windows 7 machine (mainly to gather the .sys files and the license key, which you need to provide yourself, otherwise). Links to the download URLs available in the script interface.
2. There is a provision to have both versions of the software simultaneously, but you can use the version that you need depending on the harddrive that you have. If both versions are chosen, the common files are installed only once to reduce the size.
3. Shortcuts are currently created only under W7PEX. Depending on the idiosyncracies of your respective favourite project, you have to edit [Generate_Shortcuts] to get the shortcuts that you need.
4. You might want to use the SetPageFile shortcut (which uses wpeutil) for use with a machine with low memory (currently the path is hardcoded to c:\pagefile.sys and size to 400 MB).
5. In case you started with a Seagate drive and have to now restore to a new drive of a different manufacturer, you may use the JAM startmenu shortcut under DiscWizard (no such shortcut for WD TrueImage).
6. You should be able to use the same script for the regular TrueImage 11 if you 'include' the WD version (as the nomenclatures are similar unlike the Seagate version).
7. I would like to thank Dera for the original LiveXP script that I started with (and modified extensively mainly to support two TrueImage variations in one PE) and Lancelot for the extensive feedback and advice provided by him.
8. You can choose the slimmest, slim or full version depending on your need - see the interface for details of what is left out in the slimmer versions.
9. There is NO NEED to change any upperfilters in WinPE 3.0.
10. You need to have a Western Digital harddrive to install the WD version. To use either one, you need to have the respective manufacturer's harddrive.
11. There are shortcuts to run the respective Monitors (for DiscWizard and TrueImage). I didn't find a need for them within a PE. But they are added for completeness. In case you run both, only one of DiscWizardMonitor/TrueImageMonitor will run (whichever is run first).
12. When you 'mount' a backup, the drive letter will be automatically assigned. To view it in windows explorer, please 'exit' the explorer as explained here: http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/how-to-t...ws-7-and-vista/

I thought this would be useful because both the TrueImage versions are free. This is my first Win7PE script and feedback is very welcome.

Couldn't find the upload files option! wink.gif

Here's the MF link for the script: http://www.mediafire.com/?ihmd4mgomij

PS: Sorry, haven't tested on 64 bit OS. Probably only the driver file names need to change.

%Target_Prog% typo in script.project (Win7PE)?
It looks like there is a typo in Win7PE script.project:

CODE
%Target_Prog%=%TargetDir%\Programs


instead of

CODE
%Target_Prog%=%TargetDir%\Program#$sFiles


Or, is this intentional?

Thanks.

Interesting FileCopy Feature
Looks like FileCopy copies extra files under certain circumstances.

Here's an example:

Run this in CodeBox:

CODE
FileCopy,"D:\TestInput\testfile.*","D:\TestOutput"


with the content of D:\TestInput being:

CODE
d:
cd TestInput
dir /s *
Volume in drive D is WORK
Volume Serial Number is 40C5-6EEB

Directory of D:\TestInput

10/15/2009  01:44 PM    <DIR>          .
10/15/2009  01:44 PM    <DIR>          ..
10/15/2009  01:30 PM    <DIR>          junk
10/15/2009  01:29 PM                 0 testfile.txt
               1 File(s)              0 bytes

Directory of D:\TestInput\junk

10/15/2009  01:30 PM    <DIR>          .
10/15/2009  01:30 PM    <DIR>          ..
10/15/2009  01:30 PM    <DIR>          junk
10/15/2009  01:29 PM                 0 testfile.txt
               1 File(s)              0 bytes

Directory of D:\TestInput\junk\junk

10/15/2009  01:30 PM    <DIR>          .
10/15/2009  01:30 PM    <DIR>          ..
10/15/2009  01:29 PM                 0 testfile.txt
               1 File(s)              0 bytes

     Total Files Listed:
               3 File(s)              0 bytes
               8 Dir(s)   1,742,062,592 bytes free


You will get the output (with both 77RC2 and 78SP2):

CODE
d:
cd TestOutput
dir /s *
Volume in drive D is WORK
Volume Serial Number is 40C5-6EEB

Directory of D:\TestOutput

10/15/2009  01:44 PM    <DIR>          .
10/15/2009  01:44 PM    <DIR>          ..
10/15/2009  01:43 PM    <DIR>          junk
10/15/2009  01:29 PM                 0 testfile.txt
               1 File(s)              0 bytes

Directory of D:\TestOutput\junk

10/15/2009  01:43 PM    <DIR>          .
10/15/2009  01:43 PM    <DIR>          ..
10/15/2009  01:43 PM    <DIR>          junk
10/15/2009  01:29 PM                 0 testfile.txt
               1 File(s)              0 bytes

Directory of D:\TestOutput\junk\junk

10/15/2009  01:43 PM    <DIR>          .
10/15/2009  01:43 PM    <DIR>          ..
10/15/2009  01:29 PM                 0 testfile.txt
               1 File(s)              0 bytes

     Total Files Listed:
               3 File(s)              0 bytes
               8 Dir(s)   1,742,061,568 bytes free


whereas, I would have expected to see ONLY ONE (testfile.txt) file in D:\TestOutput.

FileCopy seems to be copying all files that match the filename within subdirectories also - seems to be something to do with the use of '*'.

Thanks.

Acronis True Image Home 2009 Free
Hi All,

I am posting this, as I couldn't find a simliar post when I searched. I am just downloading this myself (have a WDC drive).

Here's the link to the WD edition of True Image Home 2009 Version 11 - 8311 - August 2009 build (see post #3 below) download:

http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp

Hope this is useful. I know the Seagate version of True Image 11 (Discwizard) has been around for some time.

Oriensol

PS: Now, does anyone have a ready Winbuilder script for this ? wink.gif

PS2: I guess now that Home 2010 has come out, 2009 is being given away this way. 2009 doesn't support Windows 7 sad.gif - version comparison here: http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/produ...comparison.html
