Automating the building of a BartPE bootable disk (updated for pebuilder 3.1.3)

To automate the tedious process of building a bootable BartPE disk, I created the Makefile pebuilder.mak to build a BartPE disk with a single command.

To build the disk, all you need to type is:

$ make -f pebuilder.mak

The Makefile, and the supporting files are available as pebuilder-makefile.zip.

Of course, to run make, you will need to install Cygwin and select the make and wget packages. Alternatively, you could unzip cygwin-1.5.23.zip, which contains only the executables needed to run make.

It helps speed the build process by telling pebuilder to not build the .ISO. It then calls InfCacheBuilder, and then calls mkisofs. Finally, it calls cdrecord. A Windows version of cdrecord is available as cdrtools-latest.zip.

Also included is inirw.exe, a small C program I wrote to read and write .ini files. inirw.exe is also available separately (including source) as inirw.zip.

Why not make the Script work in Linux

  • I know there are complexities of mod'ing this script, but submit it to the community of Linux hackers (sourceforge maybe) and see what happens. Heck, send it to Bart himself. I personally don't have a complete handle of Linux commands to mod it properly. But, in theory, if you have a dual-boot WinXP/Linux system and have that Linux distribution running, then it should be possible. Especially since you are using Cygwin. It might alternatively be possible to use the Wine "windows" program files folders, etc. to build it... then you wouldn't need windows at all for the creation - something that could come in handy if you have a Windows system of you own that won't boot and it's infected with a very new virus/worm... this could happen.
  • The one thing that I really like BartPE for is making Antivirus analysis CDs for fixing my friends (with friends like these, who needs enemies?) hosed Windows boxes - esp. win98. It would be very nice indeed if you could get this to work with Linux and not just Cygwin.
  • Thanks,

    error while making pebuilder.mak

    Allright i think i've done everything correct but i keep getting the error: "make: *** No rule to make target 'pebuilder.mak'. Stop.

    I'm not very experienced with this but i'm trying to learn, so can anyone please explain to me what i'm doing wrong?:) thanks.

    What are you typing, exactly?

    My guess is you are not including the -f option:

    make -f pebuilder.mak
