UPDATE: 16.12.2011. Build 3 of Windows XP Professional plus Tablet PC
You should choose either the VHD OR IMG file download. Scroll down to the instructions if you are not sure which one is best for your preferred method. Also download DRIVER.CAB (place in Windows\System32\Drivers) if you will be installing other devices like USB soundcards.
Mirror 1: (download all the parts you need and unzip the multi part archive)
Mirror 2: http://min.us/mKH1YBPaJ
NOTE: Read everything below while downloading, the O2 logo will stay on screen for about 45 seconds throughout the first half of the boot - there will be no scrolling text any more. Be sure to chose the right EFI files for WITH HUB or NO HUB. You will probably find that port 4 on the hub is the only one that will boot.
Due to hosting costs, I've now 'retired' Build 1 & 2, but I can provide a download link on request.
Standing on the shoulders of giants, I have prepared Tiny XP Pro SP3 REV.11 for the Joggler. I couldn't have done this without the help of some clever people, so I need to thank Eric, Dan, Pete, Mick, and probably many others who solved all the problems with XP/2003. Also Team eXPerience for Tiny XP.
A full working version of XP Pro, with Tablet PC edition components, this version is initially optimised for HDD or similarly fast access USB or ZIF storage, but there is a desktop shortcut to c:\eXPerience and the .reg files that the team behind Tiny XP, Experience included to help users reduce the memory footprint of the installation by disabling services, etc. You can select 5 options ranging from DEFAULT (everything works) to MANIAC (not a lot works). Build 3 is set to LITE, which works well for the majority of media and internet usage. Below that you may get problems. New for Build 3 are quick shortcuts in that same folder as above to change Desktop theme to Classic.
**YOUR FLASH MEMORY MAY GET WORN OUT VERY QUICKLY WITH XP**.
I've tested this thoroughly, but the usual disclaimer is that you agree to use this at your own risk. Oh and you should have a spare XP license for your Joggler, too.
Stand out added features & fixes of BUILD 3 Tiny XP Pro for the Joggler are:
- Stable - runs for days without a problem. Thoroughly soak tested during the build on both HDD and flash stick.
32bit colour, large, single tap to open desktop & start menu shortcuts to included apps, configuration, Tablet PC keyboard and other minor tweaks to make using the touchscreen more convenient.
Touchscreen can be calibrated via a desktop shortcut.
Passes Windows Genuine Advantage - Windows Update works, with security updates up to date and you should be able to install MSSE if you need a virus scanner.
IE8 & Chrome Browsers. Chrome has Adblock Plus and a theme which matches the Windows Zune theme.
Tablet PC components, and XP Tablet Experience Pack.
Windows Media Player, Tversity, media playback codecs. The recently released Squeeze Play for Windows.
uTorrent setup to load torrent files from a shared folder. Save to the shared folder and your Joggler will start downloading. Download Acceleration Manager for pausing and resuming large downloads included too.
Windows Time will update itself shortly after boot when Internet connected.
Desktop background displays useful information, like IP Addresses, free disk space.
VNC Service. The password is joggler. Get HippoRemote Lite for your iDevice and use this keyboard and mouse app to control your Joggler over your LAN/WLAN.
System Scheduler app for automating tasks, key presses and basic mouse interraction. Very Useful.
CCleaner to keep your Joggler clean and fresh.
NovaBench benchmark software installed. Reports the Joggler performs similar to a 7 year old P4.
Small download size - 510MB for Build 1, 925MB for Build 2, 813MB for build 3.
Sexy Zune Windows theme.
The screen saver is the Fliqlo clock and it looks great.
Choice of VHD or IMG to create your boot disk from.
Ext2 Explore app, which you may like to use to browse the internal OS.
Improved network behaviour, correctly identifies itself on the network.
More attractive boot sequence, hiding the ugly scrolling text that moves to fast to read, anyway. Look for the little Jogglers appearing in the Windows boot!
Page file is set at static 742MB without requiring manual setup.
In the EFI partition are 2 cmd files to enable you to quickly chose between booting via a hub and not booting via a hub (which knocks seconds off the boot-time.
- The speakers do not automatically mute when using the headphone socket, so if you plan to use headphones or external speakers (not advisable, see below) you can disable the internal speakers. Thanks must go to Delko on the Chinese HiPDA forum who posted a modified driver. Using this, I have made a simple registry fix which you will need to download separately from Build 3. You will need to restart Windows for the new registry settings to take effect. The speakers will be silent when the Joggler is not playing music, although they will still spit out a low level digital fizz when music is playing from the headphone socket.
Due to the way that the registry setting is located, this will most likely not work on another person's XP/W2003 build without the reg file pointing to the correct registry location for that build.
- Warm reboot does not work for USB hubs.
Some Jogglers may not start the NIC device (error 10). Unsure why, but I have one Joggler that reports the same hardware as the other, but no NIC. WIFI works and USB to Ethernet adaptors are really cheap and the Belkin one I have works well on a hub with a usb stick. We suspect this is a NIC firmware issue that affects some Jogglers.
Occasionally, people report that their display is offset. Switching between screen resolutions fixed that problem for them. Not observed on my Jogglers
Installation instructions for download & install:
- Chose either the VHD or IMG depending on which version is easier for you to write from.
Unzip joggler-xp-mevi-16.12.11.vhd or joggler-xp-mevi-16.12.11.img.(3GB)
Mount the VHD - (W7 users can use the W7 disk management snap-in) You can skip this stage if your imaging tool supports this format.
Copy the VHD to your choice of USB HDD, SSD or flash stick using your favourite cloning app - (I use MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition).
Write the IMG to your choice of USB HDD, SSD or flash stick using your favourite app - (I use Win32DiskImager).
Before safely removing your USB device from your PC, if you want to use a usb hub, you should run the withhub.cmd file in the EFI partition. Some OS users should simply copy the contents of the WITHHUB folder into the root of the EFI partition. You will probably find that port 4 on the hub is the only one that will boot.
Plug the USB drive into your Joggler and switch on. You should find that it recognises and installs your hardware and disk, but most else will already be installed. Restart when prompted.
I found this tool for Windows. It can convert between different disk image formats so if you're on a Windows machine, pick your favourite image type to download and convert it if needed.
I've used it to convert beetween these disk image formats: VHD, VMDK & IMG. Very useful.
Take care everyone
