With the release of Power Pack 3, updated media was released. Included in this media refresh was the Client Restore Disk. Specifically, a number of improvements have been made to the server discovery routines to better identify the server. And I believe, also to more accurately display the progress.
Either way, this means that I need to rebuild the X:Files Edition Client Restore Disk. The drivers have been updated again, specifically chipsets (907), lan (907) and mass storage (907). Also WLAN (812.3) support has been added for those wanting to grind their molars as they wait for wireless speeds.
Additionally, we’ve added a Vista boot image that loads up a command prompt. This has access to a lot of the windows tools, such as diskpart, chkdsk, bcdedit, format, bootsect, and many others. This isn’t a fully featured “LiveCD” at the moment, but it is there to make the Recovery Disk a more robust, useful tool. Not just a restore disk. Now if only we could get Microsoft to see this light! Oh well. It keeps me busy in the meanwhile!
