    Hi,

    I've successfully created a Live XP CD image with the latest Winbuilder (75 B). The ISO boots and I can play with it.

    Now I would like to add Acronis TI 2009 (latest build) and Disk Director 10 (latest build) to this image. As far as I know Mustang's scripts only work with the Vista part of Winbuilder and I cannot use it here.

    Is there another way to include TI and DD into a live XP image?

    cu,
    Michael

    You don't say why you can't use VistaPE, but you don't have to have Vista installed - only TI and DD. Mustang's VistaPE script works in XP.

    Hi,

    Mustang's site does not tell anything about a TI 2009 script:
    http://www.mechrest.com/plugins/

    It just mentions a PEBuilder and the provided screenshots of this builder shows me that I need Windows AIK installed and has nothing to do with WinBuilder at all - IMO it is a standalone application.

    OTH there are no further scripts mentioned on his site which deal with TI 2009.

    Looks like you are right - things have moved on since I used Mustang's VistaPE/TI/DD scripts. It seems for TI 2009 you may have to purchase PEBuilder atm. Sorry.

    I wouldn't mind purchasing sthg. from Mustang - I've already purchased a BartPE script for TI11 from him.

    However if I'm not completely sure that PEBuilder will work with my already configured Winbuilder (LiveXP) scripts, I'm not intending to buy it

    I hope sbdy can jump in this discussion and clear things!

    Michael,

    mustang's PEBuilder is totally separate from BartPE, LiveXP and VistaPE. It will create a self-contained TI 2009 WinPE CD. Buying it won't allow you to add TI 2009 into your LiveXP build.

    As far as I know, mustang is not planning to release separate plugins or scripts for TI 2009.

    Unfortunately I cannot use Mustangs application then and have to wait for another solution.

    Try the BartPE way - you will need the True Image plug-ins for whichever Acronis programs you want to embed in the BartPE cd. The plug-ins should be available in a link when you log in to your Acronis account.

    Hello Roaster,

    Thank you for your interesting in Acronis True Image

    I would recommend you create BartPE bootable disc using Acronis BartPE plug-in, you can download plugin from your account. If some drivers are not recognized by Acronis True Image Home 2009 you may use BartPE bootable disc. It is possible to add any storage drivers at startup in the same manner as when installing Windows on the hard drive (by pressing F6 and inserting diskette with drivers).

    To create BartPE bootable disc with the Acronis True Image plug-in you should download PE builder from the following link

    See also this article “Creating BartPE Media with Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0”, use this link.

    For additional information about BartPE, please click the following link


    Best regards,
