How to make an wes7 usb disk which is bootable using windows embedded stantdard 7 toolkit? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to use the wes7 toolkit to create a usb disk which can initiate and run wes7 system by itself directly without installation. But using the "Create IBW image from answer file..." can only generate a setup disk. Can anyone give some advices? Thanks in advance.

  • i would suspect the best way to do this is to run through the install process but point your destination at the usb pen drive


    so your first step is to connect the usb pen and have that as the system drive for your unit

    then during the install point it there

    once it is complete you then end up with a usb drive that is bootable into the os


    is my understanding of your request correct?

  • ICE does not support creating a WES7 runtime OS.  To create a runtime OS with USB Boot, you'll need to use IBW and follow the steps Richard described.

    We're considering supporting this feature (building runtime OS in image configuration tool) in our next version of product beyond WES7.
