Failed to create EWF partition

Guest

Hi,

I'm new to XP embedded and am trying to do an install of XP Embedded on a
second partition of my hard drive ("D" Drive, 650 MB). The "C" drive is much
larger and has Windows XP prof on it. I am having problems getting EWF to
install correctly.

I get as far a the install which seems to do OK as after a couple of reboots
I get a very basic XPE with "login" and "restart" options on the start menu,
but I know that EWF did not install correctly as I can see it in the log file
(fbalog.txt), snippet shown below:

I've tried installing twice different images, with different the EWF
component settings for the partition number: once as "1" (the default) and
then "2" (since the D, drive is the second partition?)

A little more information on the process that I followed:
1) Built an EL Torito CD Boot image with EWF (used tar.exe to get target
components, manually added ElTorito CD support, and winlogon sample macro
components).--Made sure to uncheck the "NT Loader" in the settings for the
winlogon sample macro. Also in the component target device settings I changed
the drives from "C" to "D".
2) Used Hd2iso.exe to create an iso file from the image
3) Burnt the iso image to CD
4) Booted from drive "D" (with CD installed) --install started. Had to
reboot a couple of times before it finished.

Any ideas why I can't get EWF to install correctly?

Apparently the trick is to make all partitions primary, in this case, my "D"
drive was not a primary and EWF can only go in certain places:
"The EWF volume can only be configured on a hard disk immediately after a
primary partition, or within an extended partition. The EWF volume cannot be
created immediately after an extended partition.
Resolve this problem either by configuring all partitions on the disk as
primary, or by configuring additional space within an extended partition for
the EWF volume. "

Sheila,

You are correct and EWF can't create its Config partition because of the hard disk partition layout you've got over there.

However, why do you really need to use EWF RAM mode? It requires EWF to create Config partition that you won't be able to copy to CD
anyway and will have to switch to EWF RAM Reg mode at the end.
If the final purpose is to have the image burnt as El-Torito CD you are better off going with EWF RAM Reg mode at the first place.
Read the Xpe docs on how to do that. There will need to be some registry entries pre-populated in your pre-FBA config but if you
move to FP2007 the RAM Reg mode is very easy to use. Otherwise, on SP1 and SP2 you can use Slobodan's component from
www.xpefiles.com.

Hi,

The ultimate goal is to run from a CF drive, but we don't have the HW yet
and it's easier to install on my hard drive for right now so I'm just trying
to get an initial configuration going.

You don't want to be trying to boot from CD when in the end you want to boot
from CF. CD boot is going to be a little more involved as KM hinted at. RAM
Reg will be the way to setup EWF. Are you using the preview of FP2007?
FP2007 makes RAM REG mode setup much easier.
