CEPC out of the box example wants to boot with KITL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just trying to get CE8 up and running, followed the example, disabled KITL in my build but when I try to create a CEPC VirtualPC image it keeps wanting to boot with KITL enabled.  What am I doing wrong?

    Is there a better top to bottom example I can follow?  Basically I want a CEPC image, that I can load on a VirtualPC disk and connect to with dev studio, don't want to download an image each time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • So, how did you disable KITL?

    Are you sure that KITL is connecting?  Or is eboot connecting and downloading the OS?  Or both?

  • I used the same procedures for WEC7 and it worked fine. The key is setting up the initial VHD. I used DiskPrep as described in Samuel Phung's blog (Configure Virtual PC to Boot Compact 7 using DiskPrep). Instead of a WEC7 image, I loaded a WEC2013 image.

  • Just getting back to this.  I managed to disable KITL in the initial boot screen (the point where you get 5 seconds to hit space to modify the config); once I did that it was persistent but it's unclear where that setting is stored.  I have this booting but can't do much with it, keyboard support through my attached keyboard doesn't work for a darn.  

    I'll give Samuel's blog a shot.

  • Did you used the vhd located in <WINCE800>\platform\cepc\vm for the VirualPC image? (hd_sample.vhd)

    As I recall there where issues with the keyboard driver if you used the the vhd/vpc from WEC7 loading a wec2013 image,

  • Circling back around.

    The keyboard issue seems to be some problem between my remote Win7 box and my Vista box; when I moved it to my local Win7 box the problem went away.  Not sure I understand the problem but it's definitely repeatable; I'm ditching Vista anyway so won't dig any further.

    I used the DiskPrep tool (liked it) and looking at the boot.ini file it seems this could solve some or all of my issues.

    Thanks for the help!
