Adding files to Ghost WinPE Boot Packages
I am attempting to add the DeployCenter executables to a Ghost WinPE boot package. Yes, I know that they are 16-bit and running those in WinPE might not work at all, but I have a different issue to resolve first. I am testing my work in VMWare Workstation, for both Ghost Server and Client.
There is a step in the Ghost Boot Wizard where one can add files to the boot package and choose/create a directory to contain them.
My first attempt was creating an ISO. After some trial, error, and poking, I discovered that the files do not appear to be in the WinPE PreOS that the client boots to, but are visible at the root of the ISO itself. This appears to be the case with a USB drive as well.
In another attempt, I created a One-Click Virtual Partition. The files were visible in the PreOS, but when attempting to run the executables, I was told that they could not be found. They were also visible in the vpartition.zip file
How can files be consitently placed on, and accessed from, the PreOS when added via the Ghost Boot Wizard?
