Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE 3.0 – based on Windows 7)



Posted by: Michael Khanin
WinPE, winpe 3.0

Windows® Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) is a minimal operating system designed to prepare a computer for Windows installation (and not just for Installation). Windows PE is available as a stand-alone product to customers with the proper licensing agreement. It is an integrated component of many Windows Setup and recovery technologies, including Setup for Windows® 7and Windows Deployment Services (WDS).

Windows PE 3.0 is the latest release based on the Windows 7 operating system.

I’ve changed few scripts that I’ve found on MSFN Forum and now I’d like to share a script, that will create a WinPE 3.0 ISO just by one click :)…

I called this script _WinPE-3_Builder.bat. here is a content of _WinPE-3_Builder.bat:

SSH in vSphere 4i



Posted by: Michael Khanin
SSH, vSphere 4i

To enable SSH in vSphere 4i we should do the following steps (similar as esx 3i):

1. First, press Alt + f1 then type “unsupported” and press enter.
2. At the prompt for password, provide the credentials, previously configured, and we will be able to log in to the service console.
3. Do a vi /etc/inetd.conf and look for #ssh. Remove the # and save the file after this.
4. Go to /sbin, and run this command ./services.sh restart

Now, we will have SSH enabled.
