Update eCS beta ISO
« on: December 03, 2013, 08:24:27 pm »
Hi,

In order to test eCS 2.2 beta I need to update the ISO with newer usb-drivers.
Does anyone have a "How to" for this?
(I know there are "Windows-tools", but I'd like to this under eCS.)

I wouldn't waste the time. The BETA is junk in my opinion.

that is just your opinion. Refresh beta is OK.

Update usb? Save old, unpack and copy new. Or run wpi installer. It will do it for you. That is after installation.

I'm trying to install to a pc that has no os installed, and the usb drivers in the beta iso do not
work for the keyboard or the mouse.
So, still I need a way to create an updated iso.

I think there's an iso file system driver and an iso netdrive plugin too. Maybe you can do that with them but never tried myself.

Personally I would go the Win-UltraISO route.

I found ISOFS at Hobbes, but like the netdrive plugin it is read only.
Looks like I have to go the "Win-route".

If (and I know this is less and less common by the day) you have a floppy drive (I have a USB floppy I kept for this purpose) you can use a floppy to have newer drivers on that will be pulled in during the initial boot process.  I can't find the instructions right now, I thought they were on the root of the DVD but I don't find them.

Request an ISO with the latest drivers from Mensys. I'm sure they'll be interested to know if the latest USB drivers do work for you.

I do have a USB floppy drive, and I'm able to test the latest drivers with the current beta. I guess you'd have to weigh the advantage of testing now vs. the cost of a USB floppy drive.
