SLX File Supporting Multiple Configurations


T

Tim Houle

I have 2 separate computer chassis' running XPE. One
chassis uses the ACPI multiprocessor and the other uses
the MPS uniprocessor component. They do have SOME
differences in hardware. Could I add all components
necessary for both chassis to one .SLX to support both? I
realize I'd have 2 separate images because FBA would need
to run for each. Would this work? I'm not too concerned
about size of image.

Thanks,
Tim

Nope, you need two images. The HAL's are different between the two
processors - using the ACPI HAL on the MPS machine loses the MPS
functionality, while the MPS HAL will probably BSOD on you. Other than
that, you could load all the HW between the two machines into one SLX,
build with one Computer component, then swap for the other and rebuild.
