Re: wimapply with raw disk file (file.img)

You might want to use

Code: Select all

losetup -fP file.img
so that wimcapture can actually capture the partition itself rather than the whole disk (which includes the partition label)

Re: [SOLVED] Can't create hard link

A path like "/run/media/m/BEE6-6CB5/" suggests to me that the USB drive is formatted with FAT, which cannot support hard links in the first place.

Re: Error : filename is not valid UTF-8

Edit: in principle filenames with a well-defined encoding other than UTF-8, say ISO-8859-1, could be mapped to UTF-16 as well. Almost everyone uses UTF-8 now though, so there hasn't been a need to support this. It should be possible, even, to have a flag that interprets all file names as ISO-8859-1...

Re: Error reading data from WIM file: Invalid argument

I tried copying it to a non-FAT32 FS Did you save it to FAT32 first? There's a file size limit that's smaller than the file you are supposed to be working with in the first place... Just about any other file system doesn't have this same limit. exFAT, NTFS, HFS+ would all work for saving this file ...

Re: Wim To ESD & ESD To Wim is always heavy for me ?

Sorry for the delay & thanks for the quick & prompt response! I realize that the process is very heavy. Is it possible to break the whole procedure in small parts ? wimlib does this by default by splitting off into as many compression threads as you have CPU cores. If you aren't using "...

Re: Deploy Linux Mint via MDT

I assume you mean this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft ... nt_Toolkit

I doubt it will be possible to provision Linux operating systems with it. wimlib could certainly be used as part of Linux deployment, but you're going to want to base it from a Linux system in the first place.

What does the --check option gain?

The wim format and wimlib seem to support some kind of extra integrity information (hashing the compressed contents of the wim file?), but I don't really know when this might be desirable. wimverify is still able to assure that a wim file is not corrupted even if a file doesn't have this information...

Re: dism mount WIM, update, wimlib append?

dism creates a whole tree on an NTFS volume and sets up reparse points so that the kernel and look back into a mounted WIM for the file data. wimlib will be capturing just these reparse points instead of the expected file data (it works quite different from how mounts work in Linux, for example).
