Ok that makes sense, I did try some of the tools inside of the MINIXP and it did error. (which is good),

What I wonder is if there is a way to remove the tool link from the menu, so that it cannot be clicked.

Also, do you know of a way to extract MiniXP with all of the tools, it would be nice as a stand alone tech tool for my technicians who don't need to be monkeying with all of the dos tools.

So  TL:DR

1. Is there a way to remove the programs from view in mini xp
2. is there a way to create a full MiniXP boot cd with all programs.

I appreciate your input on this matter.  Have a great day.

1: This is a hack that must be done when creating file XP.wim which we do not have access to :(

2: Hmmm... If you use my script 'EasyBoot-HIREN_v14*' and in script check; "Only integrate Hiren MiniXP into EasyBoot  (No DOS-tools etcetera)" - all DOS-tools are removed - including 'Parted magic' and all antivirus tools as well are skipped - left is MiniXP and 'basic tools' included in MiniXP (7z-file manager, Notepad, Disk-Management, Registry manager etcetera)

Okay I can understand the point with eliminate 'meddlesome persons' from doing 'bad things' by removing programs could be an idea ???
However this must in most cases be done when creating XP-wim-file which cannot be changed from my script (or manipulated by Easyboot).

So you are stuck to accept tools that are integrated into Hiren's MiniXP :O

Same to you :;):

What about using your script to Only integrate Hiren MiniXP into EasyBoot  with all the dos tools?

I suppose I could just use UltraISO and copy all of the tools back into the image right?

It seems you have missunderstod the function of my script and perhaps how Hiren works ???

If NOT using checkbox (NOT ticking checkbox) "Only integrate Hiren MiniXP into EasyBoot  (No DOS-tools etcetera)"

When pushing 'Start-button' script asks for location of Hiren ISO-file.
When you double-click to Hiren ISO-file script integrate the whole Hiren build into EasyBoot (and in the end automatically giving you the right menu command to use in EasyBoot menu)

If using checkbox (checkbox ticked) "Only integrate Hiren MiniXP into EasyBoot  (No DOS-tools etcetera)"

When pushing 'Start-button' in script asks for location of Hiren ISO-file.
When you double-click to Hiren ISO-file script only integrate the Hiren MiniXP-system into EasyBoot, skipping all DOS-tools and Parted magiq as well (and in the end automatically giving you the right menu command to use in EasyBoot menu).

Note: Hiren MiniXP has no access to DOS-tools :O
Those DOS-tools are used in DOS environment and not in the 32-bit system (MiniXP)!

------------------
Quote: " I suppose I could just use UltraISO and copy all of the tools back into the image right?"

Why not simply run the script ???
Note: script has a lot of 'checkpoint built in.
As example, script automatically scan your folder disk1, and if finding an earlier build of Hiren, script clean up and rebuild your Hiren (with or without DOS-tools depending how you use mentioned checkbox)
If you use wrong version of Hiren ISO-file you are automatically notified (script halts and clean up in the same moment)

-------------------
To sum up... :cool:
You have two options:

1. Integrate the whole Hiren build into EasyBoot

2. Only integrate Hirens version of MiniXP, skipping all DOS-tools as you launch the 32-bit system (MiniXP).

Quote: "make a live usb install of minixp with persistent storage?"

Interesting request - especially as I'm confused what you exactly mean :laugh:  :;):

A. MiniXP is 'persistent' on the USB drive in the way it is loaded and run from RAM but need USB drive still plugged in to have access to folder HBCD

B. But 'surf statistic' or similar 'data' is not 'persistent' as RAM is wiped out when you shut down MiniXP (and\or reboot or shut down)

C. MiniXP must have access to folder HBCD (HBCD reduced with only tools left that are related to MiniXP) and can even NOT be hided (tick 'Create Boot Partition' when 'Burn to USB drive in EasyBoot), if using such option, MiniXP cannot find folder HBCD as it is hided

Hmmm... Hopefully I haven't totally misunderstood your request - or have I :O  ???

Just wondering why the most like to use it?
What is it good for?

It create a lot of junk files on your host machine.
Just one example you can see the rest of the files in C: drive \%temp%.

You will find some alternative:
1. LiveXp is not persistent
2. If Im not mistaken, WinPE v.3 has persistence ability.
3. Native boot win7/8 vhd. It functions like full install system and the best system for fixing computer.  
4. or Native boot Xp using winvblock functions like #3, portable also just need drivers to run on a lot of computers.

I dont think to use it, but it is yours

@pica

Some comments although I guess talk is not addressed to me :;):
-----------------------

I'm NOT using Hiren in any build as I have the exact question, quote: " What is it good for?"
I also have the same thought quote: "Just wondering why the most like to use it?"

However I created a script because it seems to be so popular to other users...

Quote: "You will find some alternative"
Exactly!!!
By the way... You can find discussion regarding quote: "Native boot win7/8 vhd" in EasyBoot forum
Solution how to launch such VHD-file from EasyBoot menu is solved :)  

However as you point out, these decisions is not ours - it is up to the user :cool:

Note: I didn't have any acknowledge about tutorial in 'REBOOT' :O
It's a nice tutorial - however, my script isn't that sophisticated but is on the other hand, fully automated for those that must have Hiren in EasyBoot build :cool:

Well, I want to use MiniXP but I also want to change the path of the HBCD folder. Everything else works fine except MiniXP which fails.

I have 15.1. How can one fix this?

Welcome to EasyBoot @rfloubo :)

Quote: "I also want to change the path of the HBCD folder"

Unfortunately not that easy to do... :(
MiniXP (a sort of mini XP-PE) has it's path to programs already set inside wim-file and cannot be changed that easy :O
------------------------------------------
Quote: "Everything else works fine except MiniXP which fails"

I'm unsure what method you are using (and what the goal is) ???
However, if you are interested to only use MiniXP, then use my script 'easyboot-hiren_v14*' to solve this issue :cool:
Note: you have download below in every post I write in this forum. And please read carefully 'READ_ME.html' inside folder 'balder' before using scripts. This works!
