I mainly use the non-net IFL as it boots a few seconds faster than the net version. But you can use the net version if you like. The following are what I use. Personal choice.

IFL boot disk...

double click makedisk.exe, next
Traditional- You have control over options. (Custom), next
dot in I accept the agreement, next
Global Geometry----tick in Align Partitions on 1MiB Boundaries, next
Miscellaneous Global Options, no selections, next
Additional ifl.ini Options, no additions at present (I use TimeZone=AUS-10), next
Product Key (it's a short one compared to IFW), next
Leave Boot Drive Mounted as /tbu/boot, next
Normal Boot (for Scripting), next
BIBM Licensed Name, Product Key
For additional options I use TimeZone=AUS-10;GlobalGeoAlign2K=1;ISO8601=1 but you can leave it blank
select your CD burner drive letter (you can use a CD-RW or a CD-R disc). Or USB flash drive. Or ISO File.
If using a UFD I choose
USB Layout... Partition - FAT/FAT32 partition
Geometry Calculation Method... Use Device
Finish

More to come later today.

IFW boot disk

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/tbwinre_tutorial.htm

I prefer TBWinRE over TBWinPE as you don't have to install the 2 GB Microsoft Windows ADK. Both tutorials are on...

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/index.htm

Your choice. I only have the ADK installed on my test computer as I keep this OS (main computer) lean and mean.

If you want to use BIBM (Partition Work) with your UEFI laptop, use it from the IFL UFD. IFL boots in UEFI and Legacy mode. BIBM boot disk only boots in Legacy mode.

Automating IFL Backups/Restores

double click makedisk.exe, next
Traditional- You have control over options. (Custom), next
dot in I accept the agreement, next
Global Geometry----tick in Align Partitions on 1MiB Boundaries, next
Miscellaneous Global Options, no selections, next
Additional ifl.ini Options, no additions at present (I use TimeZone=AUS-10), next
Product Key (it's a short one compared to IFW), next
Leave Boot Drive Mounted as /tbu/boot, (this makes saving scripts easier), next
dot in Select at Boot - Show Menu of Scripts Available (this gives you a Menu)
BIBM Licensed Name, Product Key
For additional options I use TimeZone=AUS-10;GlobalGeoAlign2K=1;ISO8601=1 but you can leave it blank
select your CD burner drive letter (you can use a CD-RW or a CD-R disc). Or USB flash drive. Or ISO File.
If using a UFD I choose
USB Layout... Partition - FAT/FAT32 partition
Geometry Calculation Method... Use Device
Finish
    

Script creation
boot the IFL UFD
This is for a Restore script but a Backup script is the same method...

Restore
Normal
File (Direct)
Linux
Choose your backup drive on Restore From screen
Choose your backup Partition on Restore From screen
Navigate to your backup image by double clicking
Single Pass
Select the Drive or partition to restore from the Restore From screen
Linux
Choose the Target Drive and accept the Warning
Choose the Target Partition if not restoring an Entire Drive image and accept the Warning
Select your Options. Also choose Reboot when Completed
click Show Command
click Save to File
after --r type --uy
you should now see --r --uy --d: (etc)
click OK
double click boot
double click scripts
in the name field type something like Restore_HD.tbs
you can choose any name you prefer but you must have the .tbs file extension
click OK
Exit from IFL
You can click the IFL icon to create another script or Reboot the computer


When testing restore scripts (new scripts) I make sure --v is in the script. Validate Before Restore. So after the Validate commences and I know the script is working I can Exit from IFL and the restore doesn't happen.

Now when you boot the IFL UFD you are presented with a Menu of your Backups/Restores.

Using IFW, (or the others), you can create Entire Drive images of your various UFDs and restore them when needed. So you can use the same UFD for multiple IFL, BIBM, TBWinRE etc. You don't have to use MakeDisk.exe a second time.

Wow ... Shocked ... that's a lot of tutorials which will make the learning curve much steeper. I've only had a glance but I'll print it to have it to hand when I need it. For starters, I'll use IFL (no net) to image the Toshiba and next, I'll consider removing the HDDR partition and merge the space into the system drive.

Thanks a lot ... Smiley ... and I'm sure that other users who find this thread will join the choir!

Now, the Toshiba has 8 GB RAM and ... Cool ... no broken lugs!

For others who intend to "break into" a laptop:

- make sure that all screws have been removed

- start by removing the battery

- next, remove the DVD-unit or as in my case, the "fake one" (but I saw the connector and it can be upgraded if I want to)

- when removing the bottom panel, don't apply too much force prying and bending

- patience pays off and on my laptop, it can't bee seen that it has been "broken into"

- reassemble in the reverse order

- on first powerup, you probably need to set time and date

Good news. If you need extra storage space in the future you should be able to install a hard drive to that connector.

Didn't think of that but it would require some kind of adaptor between the SSD/HDD and the DVD-tray.

An example...

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Notebook-9-5mm-SATA-CD-ROM-Optical-Drive-Bay-for-2nd-...

I've done five of these recently. In my case it was replacing the HD with a SSD and putting the HD in the above caddy. There are two types of caddy depending on the size of the optical drive. 9.5 and 12 mm.

I guess ... Undecided ... that my L50D-C-18V possibly ... Undecided ... is the only one with 8 GB RAM ... Smiley ... at the expense of Toshiba. They have corrected the specifications to 4 GB!

The drive bay is not square on the Toshiba, it is profiled. Maybe I'll find one that is but it's something for the future.

When you boot BIBM on your Legacy computers, don't choose the install option. Choose Maintenance. You only need to install BIBM if you want to multi-boot. If you ever get the desire to have ten or twenty OS (or just three) on your Legacy computer, let me know. It is surprisingly easy to do this and each OS will be independent of the others. Basically you enable Unlimited Primaries, create a Primary partition for the new OS and setup a Boot Item for the new OS. Then you try to boot the Boot Item. It won't boot of course but this sets the partition Active and creates a relevant MBR for that item. That MBR partition table (maximum of 4 entries) will be used for the OS you will now install. Partitions not in the partition table won't be seen. Install the OS in the usual way.

Unlimited primaries work like this. Let's say you have six OS (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6) and a Data partition on HD0. Example Boot Items could be...

1, Data
2, Data
3, Data
etc

When OS 1 is booted there will only be two partitions in the partition table. Disk Management will only show those two partitions and the remainder of the drive will show as Unallocated Space. This is why you should only use BIBM as a partitioning tool if you are running Unlimited Primaries. I like using Unlimited Primaries. I use the setting even when I have 4 or less primary partitions on the drive because it allows you to remove partitions from the partition table rather than just Hiding partitions that are in the partition table.

If you aren't using Unlimited Primaries you can Hide partitions from each other. But you can only have four Primary partitions on the drive. It took six months before I felt comfortable enough using BIBM to transit from Limited to Unlimited Primaries.
