How to get image from XPe from CF RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi;

    I have a machine which is operating on a sytem XPE based installed on a Compact Flash Card.

    I have been wondering how it is possible to make a image incase of a error on CF so I can load this image to anothyer CF and contune to work.

    I have tried couple of image program but it does not work.  I think there is a partician that could not reach (like booth section) and those images does not work.

    Please advise me

  • If EWF is in the image, there might be a EWF overlay partition, but that wouldn't make sense for CF. Hopefully, whomever built the image used EWF RAMREG rather than RAM overlay.

    Have you tried Clonezilla to duplicate the image? / / Book Author - Pro Guide to WE8S, Pro Guide to WES 7, Pro Guide to POS for .NET

  • if you have winPE lying around, you can boot that and use imagex.

    Failing that, it's just a CF card, which looks like a dumb IDE drive, so you can plug it into a reader and grab everything with imagex on a regular PC.

    And there is always clonezilla, which does a very good job of replicating...
