      Description
      Get SuperFetch from Vista/Server 2008 and Windows 7, which is removed from Windows Server 2008 R2, back.

      Tried
      Nothing yet.

      Ive been tinkering with this for last 3 hours. I merged all the sysmain.dll and everything referring to that from Windows 7 build 7600. Ive gotten to the point that I have superfetch in services folder… however when you press start. It fails with error code 1083.

      Im not quite sure what files are needed to make it run. Its my first time attempting to do such things. For a beginner like me… very much luck is needed!

      I just started the superfetch service on R2 about 2 minutes ago after quite a bit of tinkering around:

      Once I get some time (most likely tomorrow), I will package up the registry files and whatnot and let you know how i did it.

      Next project: ReadyBoost.

      *sigh* Seems i spoke too soon. I can get the service to start but shortly thereafter it exits and when i attempt to restart it, it gives me an Error 2: can not find the file specified. If only I knew which file πŸ™‚ Once the system is rebooted i am able to start the service but again it will exit.

      I am guessing that, due to the way SuperFetch works, and the lack of support in R2, porting it is not possible. The R2 kernel likely would not have the support that would be required. Even if the relevant files could be ported, and the service could be started, I don’t think it would be able to actually work, and would not make any difference.

      I love proving people wrong πŸ˜€ Got it working last night and verified that the Prefetch folder was being populated correctly with no more errors in event viewer. As I mentioned before I will post all my findings this afternoon. I am not at my home computer so I can’t do it right now.

      Huh, I’m certainly interested. Especially if there is a noticeable difference and benchmarks showing it working, rather than just the service running…

      Ok, zipped it up for everyone. You’ll note that there is ReadyBoost info in there. I originally started with the thought of implementing it but ran into some issues so i put it on hold and switched to Superfetch. I did notice that BootPlan info under the ReadyBoost reg keys has changed/updated itself so it may all be connected. The ReadyBoost service is set disabled until I figure it out (I have some ideas πŸ˜‰ ) so don’t worry about that (Unless you have some suggestions).

      If someone wants to slim this down/do some more testing to see if everything is needed, feel free to do so. I will say that msscntrs.dll was a key file to getting this working. Just merge the reg file, copy the rest to your Windows dir and reboot.

      Anyway, file is here: http://mysite.verizon.net/dmccann79/2008_R2_Superfetch.zip

      Feel free to ask any questions and have fun with it πŸ˜€

      Ahhhh, I’m an idiot πŸ™‚ Forgot you need to edit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionSvchost and add sysmain to LocalSystemNetworkRestricted

      Sorry! Was late when i finished last night.

      So you belive that ReadyBoost and SuperFetch are connected and we need both the folders installed?

      EDIT

      Okay so I installed the files and registry settings. Had some trouble wih TrustedInstaller with two of the folders but I already knew how to get around that.

      services.msc tells me superfetch is running, how can I make sure though? Harddrive activity seems the same however ram usage is quite a bit higher.

      EDIT AGAIN

      So I double checked services.msc and statuptype is set to Automatic. However the service did not start and when I try to start it I get:

      Windows could not start the SuperFetch service on Local computer.
      Error 1083: The executable program thats this service is configured to run in does not implement the service.

      Where did I go wrong?

      Check your WindowsPrefetch folder and if its populating it w/ files that end in .pf then its working. And yes I believe you need everything installed, but like I said I am not 100% sure on this. I plan on getting ReadyBoost working next so I have no intention of spending time trying to separate them. Let me know if it works for you. Oh and you can also check the Event Viewer and make sure there are no system errors relating to superfetch.

      I would be really interested to see if you actually got it working. The fact that pf files are being created is not evidence of this however…any chance you can run some benchmarks? Eitherway, awesome effort! :>

      No, not yet, I may leave that to someone else lol. Any suggestions on proper benchmarking?

      In the mean time, still having trouble with ReadyBoost and nto sure where to go at the moment. When I add rdyboost as a LowerFilter like it is in Win7, R2 refuses to boot with an endless BSOD loop and I have to switch to last-known-good.

      Decided to focus on something else again and come back to it later, and just got winsat.exe to run and start a formal assesment, but the codecs included in Win7 are not in R2 which are needed for the media assesment. When I attempt to register the codec dll files i am presented with an error message. Frustrating, but making progress at least.

      Okay so I added sysmain in the registry and it’s working now atleast from what I can tell. My prefetch folder is being pupulated by .pf files. Can’t say anything about the performance because I just added the service. Maybe I should let it run for a few days and report back to you if I feel any difference?

      Otherwise please give a suggestion on how to benchmark it.

      It seems to work just fine. Like the Windows 7 one works (not even nearly as agressive as vista one was). I was also looking into this readyboost. I didnt manage to make any BSOD though but I didnt get it working either. I’ll look more into it later today.

      Sounds like you are making a very good progress getting SuperFetch working! πŸ™‚ Keep it up!

      SuperFetch, besides creating .pf files in %SystemRoot%Prefetch, also preloads data in unused memory in order to speed-up the starting of applications. If you take a look at the Physical Memory (MB) section in the Performance tab of the Task Manager, the value of Free should be (near) 0 MB after having the computer turned on for some time. Is that also the case in your SuperFetch-enabled Windows 2008 R2 Workstation?

      Well I don’t have much installed on this machine yet other than VMWare and 64bit Firefox but currently I have 800MB+ free out of 4GB. I’ll keep ym eye on it over the next few days.

      I can’t test myself, but if anyone is interested, I would suggest using the timeit utility from the 2003 resource kit, and measuring execution time of a big program like photoshop, a middle program like firefox and something smaller like adboe reader, after booting, after opening a heap of other stuff, and after having each program open for a while and then closing, to compare with superfetch on and off to see if it is working and not just using up memory.

      You may have to take ownership of the directory and then give yourself permission to write/create files there. Google for better directions on how to do this. Can I ask why you’re using Server 2008 R2 as an operating system? I don’t mean to offend you, but most people who would do that would already know how to change permissions, etc.

      I’m stupid, it’s about 1 year ago that I needed to change the ownership of files.
      I got it it for a few hours, service started – will see if it works properly or not ?

      You just didn’t update your package with the lost reg string yet ?

      Havent really benchmarked anything but I know Superfetch is working and filling my memory. Last two days I have noticed my memory usage has become higher. It used to be 600-680 idle and now its 890-980 idle.

      Do I feel any difference? Not really..

      Yo see results by using outlook, it starts in a few seconds ( on server 2008 ) will see what happen on R2

      but after a few hours with superfetch:

      before: 400MB in cache – and now 2400MB in cache

      Btw can someone check their event viewer for a rdyboost error (event ID 7026). I don’t know why I’m getting this, readyboost should be disabled in the reg file right? Also can’t find it in services.msc.

      I played some GTA IV, then I returned back to desktop. 3 hours now on desktop and still 1.5gb of mem free? Im starting to having doubts wether the superfetch actually does anything, because before I was playing GTA IV I had 28mb of mem free.

      Correct, I haven’t had a chance to update the package yet. As far as what files are required/reg strings etc. just download the package and extract it and all the files are there lol. I don’t feel like typing all of them out right now. the reg entries are as follows:

      Exactly.

      Unfortunatley, I am almost certain that installing the superfetch service will simply create prefetch files and allocate memory, without being able to do anything useful. Due to the way it would work, support would have to be in the kernel. For Windows Server 2008 R2, it won’t be.

      If anyone wants to test, they can test with timeit.exe as described above, which will remove and subjective interpretations and give an honest answer.

      I have to say, superfecth on R2 does not make much sense. There are generally better ways to achieve a similar solution, and if you really desire it, perhaps you should reexamine your motives for using R2 and not 7….

      I’m ok if SuperFetch doesn’t work, just thought I’d help out. Anyway, downloaded the 2003 res kit tools and have the timeit utility but don’t know how to use it, do you have an example?

      EDIT:
      Ran the tool and this is the output I get:

      This is yet one of the many reasons why I am still using R1. I open photoshop alot throughout the day and I definatly notice SF working becuase the first time I load it upon rebooot takes 7 mins. after SF grabs it it takes 2.5 mins. I have 120MB brushes and 22 patterns and 100 gradients loaded into PS.

      my architecture software takes 10-15 without SF and with SF it is 2-5 mins.

      also R2 felt odd, not as workstationey as R1 was able to. Still felt a little hacky.

      Hi everyone,

      I can confirm that this appears to be working, with the Windows/Prefetch folder being populated with .pf files of the applications I load. The Superfetch service is running and the memory being used has increased. When installing just make sure you take ownership of both the winsxs folder and the manifests folder inside it. Once you take permission change the permission to full control, you will get an access denied message, just click cancel. Once you have copied the folders and files into these folders I recommend setting the permission back to their defaults. Apply the reg file and add sysmain to LocalSystemNetworkRestricted. Reboot and you should now have Superfetch working.

      So far so good, I will keep you all updated if there are any adverse effects. Many thanks to kmccann1 for doing this. πŸ˜€

Once you have copied the folders and files into these folders I recommend setting the permission back to their defaults. Apply the reg file and add sysmain to LocalSystemNetworkRestricted. Reboot and you should now have Superfetch working.

      So far so good, I will keep you all updated if there are any adverse effects. Many thanks to kmccann1 for doing this. πŸ˜€

      I’m ok if SuperFetch doesn’t work, just thought I’d help out. Anyway, downloaded the 2003 res kit tools and have the timeit utility but don’t know how to use it, do you have an example?

      EDIT:
      Ran the tool and this is the output I get:

      I know man, I’m not trying to discredit or demean your work in any way, so please don’t take it like that. I just would not think it would work for technical reasons.

      Strange that you get an error with the tool…maybe there is an update for 2008? A 2008 resource kit?

      my architecture software takes 10-15 without SF and with SF it is 2-5 mins.

      also R2 felt odd, not as workstationey as R1 was able to. Still felt a little hacky.

      Going by your other posts, do you mind if I ask why you use R1 instead of 7 business? 7 would seem to suit you better, being optimised for multimedia work, without having any of the cruft that vista has.

      Hi Everyone,

      I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that this Superfetch tweak does not work as it should. The service is running and the Windows/Prefetch folder is being populated, but there does not seem to be any noticeable performance boost. Programs seem to load at the same speed as they did before and the the operating system does not seem any snappier. It would appear that Microsoft have completely removed all previous precaching technologies from this edition of Windows Server 2008 and focused on providing a system solely geared towards being a Server.

      I would recommend enabling the Windows Font Cache and the Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache 3.0.0.0 services as they seem to improve things a little, though this may be wishful thinking on my part. I guess in the end Server 2008 R2 is not quite as good at being a workstation as Server 2008 R1 was. Shame πŸ™

      yes but never forget: it’s a server not a workstation – on a running server there is not needed to start an app or cache app loadings – a server ( os ) runs and the focus is not usability but stability.

      on windows server 2003 it was great: try tweakNT and switch completly to NT 5.2 – XP Professional – do you remember ? πŸ™‚

      Hi everyone,

      I just wanted to point out that if you try to remove this Superfetch tweak you run the risk of corrupting Windows, and unlike the Vista DVD, the Server 2008 R2 DVD does not have any automatic tools that can fix operating system errors. If you do run into problems your only option is using a backup image but if you have not created one then you will need to reformat and start from scratch.

      It would appear that while this tool creates .pf files in the newly created Prefetch folder, it does little in the way of reserving memory for applications you are going to use. If you prefer to have this technology in your operating system then I would have to say that Windows Server 2008 R2 is not for you, but if you don’t really care about prefetching then this version of Windows Server is a great operating system. It seems rock solid and extremely stable, just keep in mind that your applications will take a little longer to load than an operating system with prefetching technologies.

      Ugh, I should have checked here first. I spent most of the morning trying to figure out how to get Superfetch to work thinking that if I didn’t find info in Google, it must not have been done. Now it seems I spent most of the morning re-inventing the wheel.

      Anyhow, I got my Superfetch to appear as though it’s working. Service is started. Now, how do I prove or disprove it is working? I’m getting .pf files in Prefetch, when I load programs, the drive grinds away for a long time initially, but when I close the app and re-run the program, it pops up instantly. Adobe Reader, Outlook 2007, IE, WMP, and PowerShell, they all took time to load the first time and now pop up instantly. Could be it was the standard prefetching and not Superfetch responsible for that, I don’t know?

      The one that stands out in my head is PowerShell. I spent most of the early morning using it to try to get XP Mode to install. PowerShell was really slow to load every time I loaded it prior to Superfetch and I was thinking I should just use the regular command prompt, but now that I have enabled Superfetch, PowerShell loads up fast. I just wonder if that’s Superfetch in action, or placebo-effect?

      That’s not SuperFetch at work I’m afraid, that’s good old-fashioned Windows Memory Pooling from Windows NT 4 (maybe 3?) days even. If you load a program then close it, it only marks said programs’ allocated memory pool as “available” but doesn’t actually clear it until it’s needed. So closing and reopening is near instant because it’s already got left over bits in RAM.

      You’d have to start an intensive program that usually takes a few seconds to load, Photoshop CS4 for example, then reboot the computer. Run Photoshop again and time the difference with a stopwatch. Reboot again and time again. Repeat several more times and see if Photoshop loads faster and faster everytime.

      And if you did it yourself, is that all you did? Just the service? Because SuperFetch is more than just a service, it’s a kernel-level driver that loads on bootup before the O.S. even initializes. THEN there is ReadyBoot (not a typo, that’s a different thing to ReadyBoost) which is the SuperFetch component that prefetch all your drivers and pre-usermode binaries….

      Also check the entire Event Log (not just Administrative Alerts) for any messages. If you see nothing at all to do with Superfetch or ReadyBoot, then it’s definately not working (because if the Event Log handler entry points arn’t registered for the kernel driver, then it definately isn’t working). Also enable verbose boot logging to actually see if the SuperFetch/ReadyBoot SYS files are actually loaded.

      Ahem… sorry if that makes no sense! All this is what I remember trying to do when I first did this back in R2 Beta. I only just decided today to reinstall R2 and give this another shot, I sort of wanted to post all that as a bit of a self-reminder too haha… but it’s interesting info regardless.

      Yeah, you’re right, I think my Superfetch isn’t working. πŸ™
      Mainly because I think if it were working, Rdyboost should be loaded, but it isn’t.
      I do get in the Event Log, “The Superfetch service entered the running state.” However, I also get:

      The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
      rdyboost

      Too bad! I had copied SYSMAIN.DLL, SYSMAIN.DLL.MUI, and RDYBOOST.SYS over, then imported all registry keys relating to those files. I think the ReadyBoot may be part of the RDYBOOST.SYS driver as the keys relating to ReadyBoot are under the RDYBOOST service. I have a ReadyBoost/Operational Event Log handler category, but it’s empty (as opposed to Windows 7 which has ReadyBoost and ReadyBoot event items in it).

      I got a BSOD when I tried to add “rdyboost” under LowerFilters in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass{71A27CDD-812A-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F} as it is in Windows 7.

      I did notice in Safe Mode it lists RDYBOOST.SYS as one of the files it is trying to load.

      Oh well, maybe someone will figure it out.

      Well ReadyBoost is an entirely different thing, that would require more steps. For now this thread should focus on SuperFetch…

      …the main issue right now I think is trying to actually find a way to test if SuperFetch is indeed working as intended. I’m in the process of installing both Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 in Virtual Machines to export the hives and do complete comparisons (and try to map the differences), thanks to the amazing software “Registrar Registry Manager”, and to test Superfetch attempts – well – I think using Process Monitor on a program and the service to watch if it reads the PF files when you launch the program might be the only way to test it, but there would probably be additional tweaking of P.M. to figure it out and not have to sort through millions of queries….

      So Windows 7/2008 R2 doesn’t use emdmgmt.dll for ReadyBoost and ReadyBoot? Or the ecache.sys kernel driver? Hmm…

      GnatGoSplat, do you think you could list the Registry path nodes you used (from 7) and also list the files you copied from Win7 to get to the state you’re in? It’d be good to compare/see if it’s any different to what AsciiWolf already did.

    • #49372

      Yeah, I don’t really care about ReadyBoost at all. The only reason I’m even looking into it is the registry values seem to give an impression that ReadyBoost, SuperFetch, and ReadyBoot are all tightly integrated with each other. That makes me wonder if it’s an “all or none” situation.

      No, Windows 7 does not even have an ecache.sys file nor emdmgmt.dll. That gives me more reason to suspect maybe ReadyBoost and SuperFetch are integrated together.

      Here are the files I copied over:
      c:windowssystem32sysmain.dll
      c:windowssystem32en-USsysmain.dll.mui
      c:windowssystem32driversrdyboost.sys

      I’ve file-attached my .reg file because it’s too big to put in the post (there is a huge registry key for ReadyBoost in it).

      Also, “sysmain” needs to be added to HKLMSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionSvchostLocalSystemNetworkRestricted. It’s a “Multi-SZ” value and I didn’t want to overwrite it with the one from Windows 7 so I added it manually.

      I did notice HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionSuperfetchDiskAssessment gets populated with new values, so the Superfetch service does do something!

      Yeah, I don’t really care about ReadyBoost at all. The only reason I’m even looking into it is the registry values seem to give an impression that ReadyBoost, SuperFetch, and ReadyBoot are all tightly integrated with each other. That makes me wonder if it’s an “all or none” situation.

      No, Windows 7 does not even have an ecache.sys file nor emdmgmt.dll. That gives me more reason to suspect maybe ReadyBoost and SuperFetch are integrated together.

      Here are the files I copied over:
      c:windowssystem32sysmain.dll
      c:windowssystem32en-USsysmain.dll.mui
      c:windowssystem32driversrdyboost.sys

      I’ve file-attached my .reg file because it’s too big to put in the post (there is a huge registry key for ReadyBoost in it).

      This was something I already knew. The new Prefetch/Cache systems in Windows 7 are closer to the HAL (in fact, it’s right in-between the HAL and low level device drivers such as Storage I/O), and unlike Vista – ReadyBoost actually does provide performance enhancements even in systems with high-volume and high-speed RAM… ReadyBoost apparently also makes branch prediction for secondary calculations (e.g., non-FPU; i.e., GPGPU/DirectCompute) much better by giving the CPU even more possible code prediction results more instantaneously – this is something that traditional RAM in x86 architecture cannot do at all and is usually left up to L2/L3 cache entirely (due to it’s legacy roots). It also explains why Windows 7 is faster than Vista on older hardware – have you tried using a 4GB ReadyBoost drive on a Pentium 4 Win7 machine with only 512MB of RAM? WOW @ Loading Time improvements!

      The fact that they are between the HAL and system drivers also might explain why you got BSOD’d a few times – it never happened to me at all when messing with ReadyBoost and Superfetch in 2008 R1 because it was a very optional component (as far as the windows core goes). Either that, or you/we’ve missed the ReadyBoot driver – neither ReadyBoost and Superfetch will not work at all without ReadyBoot, and if ReadyBoot is present without SuperFetch then it will not work either (both scenarios would most definately cause a catastrophic halt in the CPU aka BSOD in Windows terms).

      ANYWHO…. SuperFetch+ReadyBoot alone should still work without any ReadyBoost references in the registry; insepcting Windows 7 and forcefully removing the ReadyBoost driver didn’t disrupt SuperFetch at all for me. But thanks for the info and data, I’ll continue to research on my hive comparisons of Windows 6.1 Workstation Vs Server. Cheers!

      Hi people,

      Could you please tell me what are the default values of Server 2008 R2 under this key?

      HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerMemory ManagementPrefetchParameters

      I’d like to know the default values of EnablePrefetcher and EnableSuperfetch.

      Also, does anyone know what do the “enablesuperfetch” values mean?

      There is conflicting information all over the web. Look for example here:
      http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/change-superfetch-to-only-cache-system-boot-files-in-vista/

      Some people say that 1 means boot optimization only, other people say it means apps optimization only. And there are even people that say that it doesn’t make any difference at all to change it from 3 to 1.

      Unfortunately, Microsoft has only documented the “EnablePrefetcher” parameter, and only for Windows XP.

      The meaning of that parameter in Vista and higher OS is a mystery πŸ™

      That’s only for Vista. That key has no effect on Windows 7, it is ignored and provided for backwards compatibility. 7 will always cache both boot+user binaries as it sees fit. There’s a big MSDN blog article about Windows 7’s Superfetch they mention it there.

      The EnablePrefetcher key is only in XP because in Vista the Prefetch Driver was replaced with the Superfetch service. Again, only there for backwards compatibility. But from memory, Vista will actually change this reg value depending on Superfetch service state – so that older pre-Vista software can still test if ‘Prefetching’ is enabled or disabled – when it’s actually checking Superfetch status.

      P.S. That first one is a BitAND – 1 is probably “cache boot”, 2 would be “cache user apps” so 2+1 = 3 = do both. 0 is do none.

      I am two thirds through comparing all the differences between a Win7 and R2 installation (registry and file differences) and already found some Superfetch/Readyboot information that is missing from previous installers in the thread though I’m unsure if they’re needed yet.

      eBoostr has really been a great a caching alternative for me I recommend it highly over Superfetch in general. Turned my 50 second boot into a 29 second boot.

      I have some news for you concerning Superfetch.

      We are working on R2ConvGUI and we wanted to integrate Superfetch patch too from Ascii but we will not be able to !

      And I’ll explain why : my friend Secr9tos took R2 kernel apart and the result is that M$ has hidden/removed Superfetch !

      It looks like that the code itself seems to be removed/hidden but in fact it gets invoked like it would be on Windows 7.

      In Windows 7, the superfetch init chain gets invoked right before the session manager is set up.

      @Phase1InitializationDiscard+F81
      INIT:00000001405A2811 call PfInitializeSuperfetch
      INIT:00000001405A2816 xor ecx, ecx
      INIT:00000001405A2818 call SmInitSystem

      We are working on a workaround.

      Will keep you updated.

      I hope this information will be useful.

      I think this is what we wanted. We used Ascii’s pack for the files. πŸ˜‰ TY Ascii.

      Now it needs to be tested if it’s efficient ! πŸ˜‰

      We will release it with R2ConvGUI tool. πŸ˜‰

      not like when windows xp & 2003 era, they just disable features in 2003 but the files still inside the windows. now, they totally remove files & features for 2008r2 and we need to get file from windows 7 to make it look like “workstation”.

      Great stuff synthrarinator!

      Does this include the ReadyBoost tab as well?

      P.S – Nice skin of the Unity interface from Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal) using Rainmeter πŸ˜€

      Can’t wait to try it out. I’m hoping to get my boot time shaved a little under 50 seconds considering everything I am running right now.

      No services shut off. I am using Remote Desktop Services, a secured FTPS filezilla server as well as a simple unsecured FTP one for anonymous access. I was able to get the Google crawlbot to index my anonymous FTP site ( ftp://sealy1986.dyndns.org ) by adding a robots.txt file to the root of the server. I am also running an Orb Media server as well that hosts all my videos (available at http://public.orb.com/halladayrules ). On top of that I am running ESET NOD32 AV 4 Business Edition, plus Comodo 5.5 firewall to filter all my trusted/untrusted connections. Plus on top of that in the background I have a command-line interface running transparently of Snort, a passive Intrusion Detection System that logs suspicious behavior to my machine, for example if somebody tries to brute force my FTP server…which btw is not possible since Filezilla has an Autoban feature. Bundle this with Malwarebytes + VMWare Workstation to virtually test all suspicious files I am come into contact with. Good security practice to use…test all your downloads in a VM! Altogether considering all the features I have installed + software bundled I am using roughly 77 processes and 2.5GB of RAM. My boot time is roughly 52 seconds right now.

      There is a workaround to run unsupported USB drives in ReadyBoost.

      http://forums.techarp.com/general-hardware/22274-use-any-usb-stick-readyboost-your-computer.html

      If I cache the drive it will show up in windows as “.sfcache” file but I can’t get it to create the Trace1.fx, Trace2.fx, etc files due to missing registry entries, which hopefully you have solved.

      We’ll fix that in the new R2Conv3 release.

      Superfetch with sysmain 7601 is ok

      But your Readyboost reg file is not working.

      If you follow the guide (http://forums.techarp.com/general-hardware/22274-use-any-usb-stick-readyboost-your-computer.html) then it works.

      Let me explain this better.

      I added the both updated packs to R2Conv2 and tested it out.

      Basically I tested it out with 2 16 GB empty USB sticks and and also a 64 GB SSD drive hooked via USB and it’s a NO GO.

      If you edit manually registry then it’s ok.

      We do need the reg fix that works with any equipment.

      I hope I got this right the way it should work, if not then I may need to do some research on the matter.

      Please do not misunderstand me, it’s not criticism, I think it’s good that we are making progress in such areas it’s only that it has to work for everybody.

      There would be a way to bypass all this !

      We need to write a small app that would check all USB devices plugged in or that you wish to plug in and then have a reg file that could be adjusted to mod registry according to the installed device to enable ReadyBoost.

      What you think about it.

      you posted a link to ANOTHER thread…..
      there is NO info there regarding readyboost….

      if you mean THIS thread, then i have already read every post, and i have NOT seen any info about any “readyboost-fix”.

      so PLEASE, tell me where it is.

      The discussion of Readyboost is here

      The “readyboost fix” is here

      The patch requires more than what is really needed to run Readyboost. All you need is to import Superfetch.reg and readyboost.reg. But first you must have Superfetch role installed from R2 CONV GUI. That’s all. If Readyboost doesn’t pick up your drive as a capable readyboost device keep rescanning until it does.

      but, i have already read ALL those posts, and i canΒ΄t find any info about how to fix “the missing readyboost-tab”.
      superfetch is working, i have already tried that readyboost reg-file, but nothing happens, still no “READYBOOST-TAB”.
      so how do i scan my drive when there is no “READYBOOST-TAB” ?

      btw, those links for superfetch & readyboost reg-files go to multiupload.com…. πŸ˜‰

      Is your SD card a compatible readyboost device? I have tested the SD card out of my camera so I wouldn’t see why not its just a standard 2GB Sandisk. When I first plugged my USB drive in readyboost didn’t appear right away it took about a minute or so to pop up. But no longer than that.

      Also be sure that your SD card is formatted with exFAT or NTFS filesystems if the card is 4GB or larger.

      NTFS, FAT32, or exFAT are all compatible filesystems with readyboost. Check to make sure your SD card isn’t using FAT just in case. The default is FAT32 for most flash devices anyways so I doubt this is the problem. I would experiment with other devices just to be for sure you have set up readyboost correctly.

      If you want a baseline to work of off, the USB flash drive that I am using for readyboost is a 4GB Sandisk I purchased @ walmart for $6

      It looks like this:

      http://www.freebievip.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/sandisk-4gb-flash-drive.jpg

      They still sell them.

      That USB works perfectly fine on my machine so you know if it doesn’t work then its not a problem with the device but a problem with your configuration. Something didn’t set up properly or what not.

      hi !

      my SD-card is used for readyboost in W7, so there is no problem with the card.
      i have also tried a USB-stick that i know also works in W7.
      but there is no redyboost-tab when i right-click on the disk and check properties.

      what difference is there between the superfetch reg-file in the GUI-converter and the readyboost reg-file that you mentioned ?

      i canΒ΄t see any difference, but i might have missed something.
      anyway, i have already tried that reg-file and there is no change, still no readyboost-tab.

      what else needs to be done ?

      any other reg-hacks ?

      i copied this from the other thread:

      I got your message in the inbox. I’ll try to make a tutorial on Avast again as soon as I can…this time without music so it doesn’t get DMCA’ed.

      I really can’t say right now what the problem is for readyboost. All I did was install the Superfetch service from the R2 Conv GUI, restart, apply readyboost.reg fix, reboot and then it appeared. Nothing really special about it. The only thing I really did was make sure I had Administrator priviledges and then after installing readyboost reg file I inserted USB stick in and it popped up with readyboost tab.

      Could autoplay have anything to do with it? I doubt it though.

      Start > Control Panel > Hardware > Autoplay

      Check “Use Autoplay for all media and devices”

      Reboot. Worth a shot if it works, if not, perhaps a reformat would be best if you aint got nothing to lose my friend.

      hi !

      you got my PMΒ΄s ?
      hmmm, last time i checked they were still in my outbox…

      well, actually i havenΒ΄t used the GUI at all, i have done all conversions manually.
      i cant use a GUI, i have to live up to my reputation as a world famous hacker… πŸ˜‰ :mrgreen:

      but when readyboost didnΒ΄t work (NO tab), then i made a backup-image with macrium reflect.
      i then restored my previous backup (without superfetch), i then tried the GUI + the readyboost reg-file.

      but results are the same, no Readyboost-tab under properties….

      but i have several backup-images to play with, from both before and after conversion, so iΒ΄m going to go back to the oldest backup which is just a fresh installed R2, and try again.

      i have 3 O/S in my laptop (W7-64, W7-32, WS2008-R2) so itΒ΄s no problem to switch (restore) images…. :mrgreen:

      finally some good news !

      i restored an old system-image, used the converter-GUI, imported the readyboost reg-file.
      and i got a readyboost-tab under properties !
      so there is obviously nothing wrong with those sripts and reg-files….

      right now iΒ΄m restoring the same image once again, then iΒ΄m going to do the superfetch-conversion manually, exactly the same way i did it previously.
      itΒ΄s going to be VERY intertesting to see what actually happens then ….

      iΒ΄ll be back… :mrgreen:

      The Superfetch pack in R2ConvGUI is not really the same one that you can download from this post. We needed to change some settings in it because we noticed that on reboot Superfetch service was not working properly.

      Also readyboost.reg file is already applied in R2ConvGUI.

      I just thought you may wanted to know this.

      Thanks for pointing that out ExpertUser. I should have pointed out that I was using the 1.0.6 version of R2 Conv GUI as I hate the current one. I think its retarded to run the Conv GUI as an application. It’s not something I’m going to be using frequently its a one time deal HAHA…

      The only reason we got it to an application is to be able to update it like we are doing now with System Restore that you fixed as well as the WMP Plugin for Firefox.

      thanks for the info.

      yes, i know the readyboost reg-file is already included in the superfetch reg-file.
      that was one reason for why i couldnΒ΄t understand why i should also run the readyboost reg-file, AFTER the superfetch reg-file.

      and i HAVE used the superfetch reg-file from the GUI-converter.

      i have now one thing left to test, manually copying all files, and then run the script from the converter (except the file extraction).

      the weird thing is that the “LocalNetWorkRestricted”-settings in registry looks exactly the same both when done manually and after running the GUI.
      manually i have just added: “SysMain” to that setting.
      should something else be entered somewhere ?

      anyway, iΒ΄ll be back after some more testing…

      manually i have just added: “SysMain” to that setting.
      should something else be entered somewhere ?

      anyway, iΒ΄ll be back after some more testing…

      The Superfetch pack in R2ConvGUI is not really the same one that you can download from this post. We needed to change some settings in it because we noticed that on reboot Superfetch service was not working properly.

      Also readyboost.reg file is already applied in R2ConvGUI.

      I just thought you may wanted to know this.

      thanks for the info.

      yes, i know the readyboost reg-file is already included in the superfetch reg-file.
      that was one reason for why i couldnΒ΄t understand why i should also run the readyboost reg-file, AFTER the superfetch reg-file.

      and i HAVE used the superfetch reg-file from the GUI-converter.

      Normally no.

      I am just trying to understand why you would through such pain work to extract files from R2Conv when you just need to run them from there.

      I read earlier that you like doing things “manually”, but what you are doing now has no sense in my honest opinion. It may be challenging but it also can cause errors.

      In anyway if this makes you feel better.

      I’m also getting this error now. I just reinstalled my Windows Server 2008 R2 installation, and tried to reinstall the SuperFetch hack but it failed:

      Error 1083: The executable program thats this service is configured to run in does not implement the service.

      Does anyone know how to fix these error 1083s?
