DriverPacks BASE BartPE guide Help file for the DriverPacks Plugin for BartPE

Platform: Currently supporting: x86 32-bit versions of Windows XP and 2003 Section One:Older versions of UBCD4Win previous to 3.05 install directionsDisable or remove any existing Mass Storage Drivers.UBCD4Win came with many drivers and to avoid conflicts these needed to be disabled.To disable the included drivers... Create a new folder in the BartPE / UBCD4win folder called \DISABLED\ then cut and pastethe <UBCD4Win>\drivers\*.*  folder(s) to the <UBCD4Win>\DISABLED folder. You can also simply delete these folders if you wish but this would not allow you to use them later if needed.Newer versions of UBCD4Win Include Bashrat the Sneaky's (BTS) DriverPacks  All other versions of BartPE Extract / install the DriverPacks Base program to a folder that IS NOT in your plugin folder - IE C:\DPsBase\ - We will allow the Base program to automaticaly create our plugin and related folders in your BartPE installation. - The folder structure is key to obtaining the full functionality of DriverPacks BASE and resulting plugins from the PEBuilder plugins page .Download the latest Mass Storage DriverPack directly to your DriverPacks folder. IE C:\DPsBase\DriverPacks\ The other packs are optional and other than LAN and WLAN are generaly not needed.Graphics and Sound drivers will require that other plugins that they depend on are provided by you.Be aware that including more than just the basic packs (Mass and LAN) you will very quickly exceed the size of a CD. you dont need to unzip or do anything else to the packs manually.Run C:\DPsBase\DPs_BASE.exe and select your language on the 'Start' page.Click the button with the > sign on it (or click on settings) to display the 'Settings' page followed by the 'Location' pageOn the location page (see fig1) Select BartPE and "Browse" to your Plugin folder. note - If you select a valid BartPE Plugin folder the OS: field will change from 'N/A' to 'bartpe'note - If you do not select a valid location you will not be shown the rest of the settings pages.Figure 1  Click on DriverPacks™ in the navigation pane or click on the next button '>' (see fig2)If the MassStorage DriverPack exists in the C:\DPsBase\DriverPacks folder then MassStorage text mode will automaticaly be selected.Figure 2Click on 'Slipstream!'That's it your done creating your Mass Storage and any other selected plugins.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Afterwards you will have the following new folder under \plugins... ' \plugin\\BASE' DO NOT CHANGE THE NAME OF THIS FOLDER!!!"plugin\\BASE" is hard-coded into the executable and must not be altered in any way.Altering the path will create issues when upgrading or adding new DriverPacksRun UBCD4WINBUILDER.EXE or PEBuilder.exe and open the "plugins" page.there should be new plugins (fig3) "# - BASE - Press <CONFIG> to enable drivers or reset DriverPacks plugins"- this should be set to 'NO' because it is only here to 'configure' plugins it is not part of the build. "# - MassStorage"- this should be set to yes to enable the MassStorage Plugin and enable the drivers for your build.Figure 3If "# - MassStorage" is not there or is out of date then select"# DriverPack - Press <CONFIG> to enable drivers" & press the CONFIG button.This will setup the base.ini file to your local directory and run the driverpacks base which will generate the mass storage drivers plugin. You MUST press REFRESH before you will see the new plugin listed in pebuilder. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Other Sources of help (subject to change without notice - sorry) Home PageBartPE Home PageUBCD4Win Home PageUBCD4Win Forum Help file updated by Overflow - 2009-12-15 OverFlow - Programmer for mass storage plugin for driverpacksMany thanks to BTS, hilander, cdob, and the ubcd4win team: i could not have done it without you guys
