Download IFL CUI, no-net v3.53?

Post by highend »

Hi,

the upgrade portal only allows me to download the current version. How do I get my hands on v3.53?

That one wasn't able to treat nvme only computers correctly when booting an ifl image from a partition on the nvme.
At that time I've modified the "process-winmedia" file to fix this issue and the result worked fine.

With the current v3.64 I run into the same issue (but the "process-winmedia" evolved and I'm currently unsure why it doesn't work as it should) and I'd like to see if the old v3.53 would still work as expected...

Anyone (@Terabyte) can help me out?

Thanks!

only the latest version exists for download...

I believe it would search nvme now .. if they exist .. you can use boot ufd to see what drives it says exists.

@OldNavyGuy
Thanks but this has an already changed "process-winmedia" script

@TeraByte Support
Maybe you can try this out...

I'll create a new v3.64 (no-net) .iso via makedisk.exe.
This .iso will contain two scripts (later on) and I'll write it to a partition on the SSD to be able to boot it via bootnow (from BootIt UEFI)

Code: Select all

    01. Welcome
        [x] Save selections for next time

    02. Select the product to build
        (o) Traditional - You have control over options. (Custom)

    03. License Agreement
        (o) I accept the agreement

    04. Select the optional components

    05. Global Geometry Options (optional)
        [x] Align Partitions on 1MiB Boundaries

    06. Miscellaneous Global Options (optional)

    07. Additional ifl.ini Options (optional)
        Separate multiple options with semicolons
            TimeZone=MEZ-01EDT

    08. License
        Entering my license details...

    09. Boot Option - Mounting
        (o) Normal Boot - Boot Drive is Not Mounted

    10. Boot Option - Scripting
        (o) Normal Boot - No Scripts are Run Automatically

    11. BootIt License (optional)
        Entering my license details...

    12. Select Target
        Use an .iso file or an USB-Stick
When I use this .iso to boot from the laptop (which only has a single NVME SSD inside) to test it I'll get this on the screen:

Code: Select all

...
Waiting for hardware detection to complete
Processing iflbflag=2, attempt:1 (optical disc)   [DONE]
Processing iflbflag=2, attempt:1 (iso on UFD/SD)  [DONE]
Processing iflbflag=2, attempt:1 (iso on HDD)     [FAIL]
and this for all 5 attempts

Create a USB stick instead of an .iso - how are you booting the ISO?

I've copied the iso to an usb stick with Ventoy (1.0.97) and booted it from there (https://github.com/ventoy/Ventoy).

If I create an usb stick with the exact same settings via makedisk.exe I don't get these [FAIL] messages...

I think It's not going to be able to find itself because it would be accessing physical drives not drives emulated through the BIOS interface. Once BIOS hands off to kernel, kernel will be directly accessing drives.

Ok, thanks.

I'll test if I'll get any boot delays when I image that ifl usb stick onto the ssd partition (to be able to boot from it via bootnow) at the end of the week...
