    this part of the instructions is a little bit confusing:

    “add EMDMgmt” ?
    add as what, a string without value ?

    You need to edit the existing entry LocalSystemNetworkRestricted which is not a string entry but a multistring. When you open it it will look like a textbox which can take multiple lines like Notepad. All the existing entries are other serives so don’t make a mistake and delete some of the texrt! Scroll to the end of the value and type EMDMgmt and OK it. Here’s a screenshot –

    Note that I did that grab on Windows 7 so the existing services are probably different to 2K8, but hopefully you can see what I mean by the example of adding the service.

    THANKS !

    your screenshots really helped.
    my mistake was that i went “one level” too deep, i opened svchost & right-clicked on “LocalSystemNetworkRestricted”, and added a string.

    now i have learned how to edit multistrings…

    Readyboost is working now.

    is this the only thread about readyboost in WS2008 ?
    any news about the installer ?
