no, they will be the base image i first created...

xppi is one base image that now has the apps for the main drive that accesses the 'net...

i want four more base images in the extended logicals ... right at the front of the extended drive...
...which will have apps installed in them later ... then reimaged at that time...

and the base image is only 3.5gb big... so those drives will be (2) 15gb and (2) 10gb...

then four more logicals for data...


edit:
i've used these sizes many times before in partitioning my former drives... so they may seem small to you... but not for what i'm putting on them...

plus i hated the partition mgrs i had before... bibm looks like i'll be able to live with it quite nicely... Smiley

thanks to your salesmanship  Wink

OK. First, are you happy with the Win7 partition size? It's easy to make it larger now. More difficult later.

OK. Let's do the first one.

In Partition Work select the Free Space. Click Create.
Name it Extended (although this name might not stick)
File System    5/5h: Extended
Size    Leave alone
Click OK

Select the Free Space and click Create.
Name it
NTFS
Size 15 GB

Restore your Ghost image into this partition. More soon.

but there's a couple things in BING I like better so I continue to use it instead


Just curious. What are these features?


Well, I really, really miss tweakng.exe.  It's a godsend for transferring the display color settings when moving BING from one HDD to another.  My 6-yr old Inspiron laptop has had 4 HDD swaps, my netbook has had two, and I just upgraded my 6-mo old Latitude laptop's 750GB HDD to a 250GB SSD.  I know TweakNG was pulled from the website years ago, but I still have it and it's worked great on every version of BING right up until the end.  It doesn't work at all on BIBM, though, and there's been nothing to replace it.

Also, for some reason I have trouble generalizing the BCD with BIBM.  Every time I try to select "{boot}" BIBM tells me "Invalid entry".  BING still works fine, though, so I haven't bothered to troubleshoot what's wrong with BIBM.  But I imagine it must work for other people so there must be a simple solution I haven't come across yet.

Dan,

I miss tweakng.exe too. You taught me how to use it.

I can't help with the {boot} issue.

I think I noticed that too.

After the restore, boot into BIBM. I assume the new WinXP will not be in the Boot Menu.

Click Boot Edit, select WinXP and click Edit.
The Extended partition may be called Extended or it may be MBR3. Select it and click Volumes. Select WinXP and click Hide. OK. OK. OK.


Click Boot Edit, select Win7 and click Edit.
The Extended partition may be called Extended or it may be MBR3. Select it and click Volumes. Select WinXP and click Hide. OK. OK. OK.

Now the extended partition WinXP is hidden from the other two OS.

Click Boot Edit and click Add. Select the (vol) WinXP in the Boot Field. Give it an Identity and an Icon. In MBR Details select WinXP and click Hide. In MBR Details select Win7 and click Hide.

Now boot the new WinXP and check for drive letters. Boot the other two OS and check for drive letters.

since the 1st xp is called xppi and the one just added is called xppv, i'm going to restate what you just said above using those names... lets see if i get it right


After the restore, boot into BIBM. I assume the new xppv will not be in the Boot Menu.

Click Boot Edit, select xppi and click Edit.
The Extended partition may be called EXT or it may be MBR3. Select it and click Volumes. Select xppv and click Hide.OK. OK. OK.

Click Boot Edit, select Win7 and click Edit.
The Extended partition may be called EXT or it may be MBR3. Select it and click Volumes. Select xppv and click Hide.OK. OK. OK.

Now the extended partition xppv is hidden from the other two OS.

Click Boot Edit and click Add. Select the (vol) xppv in the Boot Field. Give it an Identity and an Icon. In MBR Details select xppi and click Hide. In MBR Details select Win7 and click Hide. ok till back to bibm desktop...

Now boot the new xppv (clk resume) and check for drive letters. Boot the other two OS and check for drive letters.

do i have it right??

It gets easy from here as you can copy xppv to create 3 other "xppv" without leaving BIBM.

This is easier than using Ghost.

In Partition Work select xppv and click Copy
Select the Free Space in the Extended partition and click Paste
Give it a name
OK
Close

Again, in Partition Work select xppv and click Copy
Select the Free Space in the Extended partition and click Paste
Give it a name
OK
Close

Now this partition will be 15 GB and you want it 10 GB so
In Partition Work, select this partition and click Resize. OK.
In New Size field put 10000
OK
Continue
Close, Close

In Partition Work select the 10 GB partition and click Copy
Select the Free Space in the Extended partition and click Paste
Give it a name
OK
Close

Now go through the previous process of Boot Edit (Add) and Hide for all entries in Boot Edit.

Questions?

After all the OS are working, create your data volumes. No need to Hide these.

The data logical volumes? Yes, as you did before with Create.

As far as Hiding one Logical OS from another Logical OS, it's much the same as you have done. Select MBR3 and click Volumes.
