Terabyte's Newsgroup Moving Soon:
Thanks for posting that...I had no idea.
Ooo, TeraByte has a forum. Sweet! (Just purchased the BootIt BM/IFW bundle.)
Is rediculous for a company not having a decent fórum, finally terabyte got one.
TeraByte have had an active newsgroup for years. Many people in the newsgroup don't like the idea of a "forum" but that's what's happening. A forum and a mirrored newsgroup. I gather all new threads must be commenced in the forum but replies can be from either.
Hopefully Terabyte will next modernize IFW and the config options...
I hope it stays the same. The old timers like it lean and mean.
I mainly use IFW Console which is leaner and meaner than IFW GUI.
sorry brian but i hate to say i agree personally. this would make it appeal to a MUCH wider audience
What do you mean by the IFW console?
The wording on the posted information (The newsgroup interface to the forums will only allow replies to the main topic due to the flat nature of the web based forums.) was addressing replies only. This seemd to cause confusion on the NG as well.
You will be able to start new topics on the NG. What was being addressed was that any reply to a topic via the NG will show up as a reply to the original post in the thread (the new post will be added to the end of the thread). NG nested replies aren't supported.
It's the version of IFW that runs from the console (Command Prompt). It's more like IFD/IFL.
Thanks. I am embarassed I guess I haven't heard of this or seen this...will check it out.
Mudcrab, I've got the idea about the newsgroups now.
is this fast like IFL...?
on my setup ifl is the fastest to restore an image
It should be as fast as IFW since it's running in Windows. You don't boot to it like IFD/IFL.
Thanks for the info...I found the commands toward the end of the manual...yes, it does run within Windows and is not an offline image. Thanks!
IFW (Console) is a separate download only available from your personal TeraByte download section. It is run from the keyboard rather than a mouse.
Both IFW (GUI) and IFW (Console) can be run from a command line and you can record the command line by pressing F6 at the end of the image/restore setup.
TeraByte released a few betas of IFW (Console) before IFW (GUI) was released and I developed a soft spot for the Console version. When the Console version is run from a command line it doesn't need
start "" /wait
Thanks Brian...I see it on my login...thanks, I want to check it out! Can you run the console version from a PE disc?
Yes you can. Put imagewc.exe and imagewc.ini in your WinPE. That's all you need.
Make your imagewc.ini similar to Step 3 in this page
After creating the file, make it Read Only. Otherwise the contents has a habit of disappearing.
Edit... that link isn't really clear. Just start with Notepad and do this...
Separate names with a comma.
