Need help designing first image


B

Bill

Hello Group,

I have recently purchased several 8300b terminals that originally had XPe on
their CF cards.

The card were removed prior to my purchase.

I have the Windows XPe target designer and I created what I thought was a
basic image of XPe.

I loaded that onto the CF card and on boot up it said it was missing the
pci.sys file, so I added all the sys files from the driver folder.

Now it gives me the white bar at the bottom at boot up and the bar goes from
left to right, just like it would before a normal boot, but it never boots.

It just sits there with that white bar at the bottom.

I am brand new to XPe, so please bear with me.

Is there an easy way to load the default options when creating an image.

I used the F7 option to check the image and fixed the problems it found and
kept doing that till no errors were reported.

Then I built the image, but I get the feeling there is a lot more to making
an image than that.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks in advance.

Bill

I would need to know more before attempting to help. Are you able to boot
DOS and run ta.exe on these devices? Did you perform the FBA operation?

I ran tap.exe and copied that file to the server and loaded it.

Now the machine boots and runs the FBA.

It gets to the login screen, I select Administrator and just when I should
see the windows wallpaper and the start button and taskbar, icons, etc.

it goes to a dos prompt

C:\windows\system32>

No GUI, no desktop

Any ideas why it does this or how to get the desktop to run ?

Thanks Again

Bill

You've lost me with the first sentence. tap.exe is supposed to be executed
on the target if the target can run a Windows XP desktop system. If the
target can only run a DOS system then you use ta.exe. Are you saying that
you have a running XP desktop on your 8300b terminals? The output of
tap.exe (or ta.exe) is to be imported into the Component Designer where you
create a platform component. You then import that component into a database
respository using the database manager. Next you use Target Designer and
you drag in your platform component as your first component.

If none of this sounds familiar then I recommend that you go through one of
the tutorials for building and deploying an XPe system. If all this is
familiar and is what you did then I would need to know many more details in
order to have an idea of what you believe is failing.
