Little Angel Tutorial 1B - Quick Best Start

If vshadow service is not able to run successfully in your computer or you have not downloaded the vshadow sample code from Microsoft website, then you can use Still Copy or Still SysBack to make a bootable .dsk image file.

To use Still Copy or Still SysBack to achieve more or less the same results of using Live Copy or Live SysBack, you need to have already made a registry backup using erunt either during running the setup.exe inside the g4dimdiskerunt.zip package or any time before you use Still Copy or Still SysBack to make the bootable .dsk image file.

Still Copy or Still SysBack cannot copy the live registry files and some other files. So the .dsk image file made by Still Copy or Still SysBack is not bootable if you do not copy the registry backup made by erunt to the .dsk image file at the same time. Those some other files mentioned above not copied by Still Copy and Still SysBack are not essential for making a bootable .dsk image file and they can be added later to make the bootable .dsk image file more complete. Such files include those of the folder of:

Documents and Settings

So Still Copy or Still SysBack + erunt registry backup files = a bootable .dsk image file

Still Copy or Still SysBack + erunt registry backup files + Documents and Settings = a more complete bootable .dsk image file

So the following steps will describe how a good bootable .dsk image file could be made with ease:

1. Run la.exe (Little Angel) to setup Diskless Angel & Little Angel as described in Little Angel Tutorial 1 (This step must be done before Step 2a below.)

2a. Run setup.exe inside the g4dimdiskerunt.zip package.

The setup.exe will set up for you to use with your system in the following order:

a. grub4dos
b. imdisk
c. erunt

When erunt is setup, it will ask you if you like to make a registry backup at the same time.

You can simply click ok ok ok and yes yes yes to complete the whole process as the following screens show:

This will make a registry backup for your running system at the default location at:

\WINDOWS\ERDNT\xxxx-xx-xx

where xxxx-xx-xx is the date when you make the registry backup.

So later when asked to select the folder containing the registry backup to be copied into the .dsk image file, you have to select this folder so that Still Copy or Still SysBack can copy the registry backup to the .dsk image file to make it bootable.

2b. Before making any .dsk image file, you have to run erunt again to make a fresh backup of the registry so that any changes to the registry can be saved to the registry backup to be copied into the .dsk image file. You can run erunt by clicking its icon on the desktop or browse to its setup directory, the default being at \Program Files\ERUNT, and double click ERUNT.EXE to start the registry backup

3. Run la.exe again to start Little Angel

If you press the Live Copy or the Live SysBack button and if you have not downloaded the vshadow sample code from the Microsoft Website, you will be asked if you want to do Still Copy or Still SysBack instead as follows:

So you could click yes to do the Still Copy or Still SysBack imaging or no to do it later by selecting the respective button yourself.

By doing so in either way, the Still Copy or Still SysBack will calculate the size of .dsk image file that is needed for you if the Image Size field is blank.

Or you could specify an appropriate Image Size yourself.

Please make sure that the system drive letter is specified in the source field. In this case, it is c:

Then you could press the Still Copy or Still SysBack again.

Using StillCopy (Still SysBack is the same), this will take you to the following screens:

After pressing save, some or most system files (if Still Copy or Still SysBack is used) of the system image at c: drive are copied to the .dsk image specified.

Then you will be asked if you want to copy the registry backup into the .dsk image file.

If you want to make it bootable, then you choose yes. Otherwise, you choose no.

Choosing no will make Little Angel to close the .dsk image file and return you to the main screen.

We however now choose yes to make the .dsk image bootable as the following screens show:

After pressing yes, it prompts you to select the folder where the registry backup is found:
