HERE IS THE READYBOOST FILES AND PROCEDURE, INCLUDED IN THE ATTATCEHD RAR FILE!!!
Sorry for going away there without a trace guys, I have been very busy! But this is working 100% for me, with a few little exceptions that dont really affect it at all 🙂 PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT AN INSTALLER AND YOU WILL NEED TO DO SOME MANUAL REGISTRY EDITING. Also, this works for me – I cannot guarantee that it will work for you and i’m SORRY if it causes a BSOD for you it was not my intention! Note also that I tested this in a COMPLETELY FRESH install of 2008 Enterprise 32-bit [x64 PROBABLY WONT WORK and i cant make it work for that as I dont HAVE 64-bit] but yeah. Ummm…
Yeah I will make an installer as soon as I can, unless someone beats me to it 😀 If you have any low-level volume filters already installed this will BREAK it [Bitlocker for example will fail, if thats even possible on 2008] as the registry keys do not accomodate for existing entries it just assumes they are BLANK.. but as i said if you have a FRESH 2008 install it should work well 🙂
If incase you DO get a BSOD, DO NOT BLAME ME. YOU ARE INSTALLING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK, IT IS STILL IN TESTING STAGES that’s part of the reason why i’ve been so slow to release it but if anyone daring enough wants to try it, I suggest installing a second fresh copy of 2008 on a seperate partition if you are worried…. but yeah if you are happy waiting a LITTLE longer I feel like working on an installer now 🙂 I tried making one with NSIS but its not good enough lol but i’ll find something 🙂 and standard INF method is neither advanced enough…
Anyway files are below. Please note the following MISSING functions though –
– ReadyBoost will not appear in the Autorun menu when a USB stick is interted, you have to go to “Properties > ReadyBoost” yourself
– The .sfcache file on the memorystick will not be hidden, the filetype/file association is not included in the installer. So if you make a 2GB readyboost cache file, dont be freaked out or scared by the 2GB file you can see on your memory stick 🙂
– Windows is ignorant to the RadyBoost sfcache file – i.e. the Windows Backup will attempt to include it automatically as a “user data” file or whatever.
AS I SAID YOU ARE INSTALLING THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK AND BY DOWNLOADING IT YOU AGREE TO NOT PUT ANY RESPONSIBILITY ON ME FOR DAMAGE WHATSOEVER PLEASE!
All instructions are included in the “Procedure.txt” file. Follow it carefully. Peace.
EDIT: You may need to take ownership of the winsxs folder or something in order to copy required files there. If you don’t know how to do this, dont ask because that means you don’t have the experience to try out this TEST which is not PROVEN TO BE WORKING FOR ANYONE BUT ME yet!
EDIT2: If you DO get a BSOD and cant get into windows, try doing Safe Mode and reverse every step that the registry files merged. Yes it would be a pain in the ass sorry 🙁 if you are lazy just use LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION to restore from the registry backup. BUT this might result in loss of data which is why I CANT STRESS ENOUGH only for EXPERIENCED users to test this for me, EVEN THEN I suggest a FRESH BLANK TEST Server 2008 install ONLY!
