Vista chk version

Hi

I downloaded Vista chk iso from MSDN but I can’t find any sys files.
Does anyone worked with the chk version of Vista ?
Can I do partially installation of the check version ? Where do I find the hall dll ntosknl dll and dxgknl dll

Thanks
Yossi

I think that your problem is that you need to use the Windows Image whatever to extract them. That is, there’s a tool called
‘imagex’ that comes with the ‘WAIK’ that you use to mount the ‘WIM’ file contained in the ISO, which will allow you access to the
sys files and other files. This probably all sounds complicated, but it’s not that bad. To get started, download the ‘WAIK’ and
google ‘imagex’ or ‘WAIK;’ this should explain the rest.

Good luck,

mm

I use iso file that I download from MSDN
I just want to grab the ntosknl.sys and dxgknl.sys from the disc and copy to my target…
Why do I need the WAIK for ?

Because those files are inside a file called (I think) ‘system.wim’
in the iso. It’s a compressed file.

You don’t have to use the WAIK. You could install the checked build on a
system and grab the files from there. Make sure it is the same machine you
want to use them on, though with Vista I think you get the SMP kernel all
the time, but I am not sure about APIC and if there are different versions
for different hardware - there used to be in W2K & XP.

The reason for my question is to avoid installing Vista.
On the old good XP days you could pick up ntosknl.sys and other sys files from the CD and just push them to your system.

In the new DDK there is no explanation how to do that with Vista .
I wonder does someone use chk version of Vista?
Is there any place where I can find step by step explanation how to use the chk version (partial installation)

I tried to explore the iso file with WAIK with no much success.

Thanks
Yossi

  1. Install the WAIK
  2. Find ‘imagex.exe’ in the installation
  3. Start a command prompt and change directory to the location from (2) or put in your path
  4. Either burn the ISO, extract the ISO, or use a virtual DVD product to mount the ISO
  5. Look in the ‘sources’ directory of the DVD, extracted files or mounted virtual DVD for the ‘system.wim’ file. I think that is
    the name; there are two ‘.wim’ files, one is called ‘boot.wim,’ and you want the other one.
  6. You now need to use ‘imagex.exe’ to mount the ‘wim’ file, so that you can access its contents, as if they were a directory. In
    order to do that, you need to create a directory to use as the mount directory. For example, you could create directory called
    c:\mnt.’ Let’s assume that’s what you use for a name, and the file is ‘z:\sources\system.wim.’
  7. Type the following command: ‘imagex /MOUNT z:\sources\system.wim 1 c:\mnt’ I think that the ‘1’ is correct; it refers to image
    number within the wim; it maybe ‘2.’
  8. Change directory to ‘c:\mnt.’ You should now be looking at a standard Windows installation disc that has files like ‘ntoskrnl.exe’

Good luck,
