#1681 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Automate capture and apply partitioning in GimageX to address EFI firmware partition requirements.

Reported by: scottscanlon@… Owned by: Jon
Milestone: Component: Other
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


UEFI is quickly replacing the BIOS as the standard firmware interface. UEFI systems require three partitions: EFI,MSR and Primary. Currently each partition needs to be captured and applied separately and BCD Boot Manager editing is required. Link to MS detailing this procedure is below. The append feature within ImageX is not designed to support boot related issues. Microsoft does not appear to embrace EFI as they have not supported the automation of EFI partitioning in ImageX.

Add the ability to automate capture and apply partitioning to GimageX with the following features:

  1. Add the option to automatically capture multiple partitions.
  2. Add the option to automatically apply multiple partitions.
  3. Provide these features as a check box option within each tab in GimageX.
  4. Provide the ability to use an optional configuration file to customize the process.
  5. For example, some create a recovery partition in addition to the three EFI required partitions. Some have multiple primary partitions.

Not sure what AutoIt can do.
What kind of feature is missing in AutoIT to do the automation you want?

AutoIt is a big wrapper over the Windows API's. So if a windows API can do what you want just point it.
