How to InstallRestore Porsche PIWIS 18.100 Universal Image

This post show a guide on how to install Porsche PIWIS 18.100 universal image on your laptop.

Getaibose made some modifications:
* Win XP tweaks (enable right click on taskbar, enabled win xp start menu etc)
* Win XP activated (no more 3 days left to activate errors)
* Uninstalled all Panasonic drivers and other drivers not critical to the system
* Deleted un-necessary files
* Windows XP fully updated from Windows Update
* Uninstalled POSES and PET (to make download smaller, can re-install them if you wish – refer folder “Hardlock fix for installing PET and POSES”)
* changed adobe reader from German to English
* Updated WinRAR
* 100% defragmented image
* Made into universal image (can restore to VM or any laptop compatible with Windows XP)
* Restored Size ~ 17.9 GB (this is excluding pagefile storage)

NOTE: Even though the PIWIS version is shown as 18.150.500, this might only be a 18.100 as some experts have debunked the existance of 18.150.500 and stated that in this image simply registry edited to display the version as 18.150.500 (refer file “18.150.500 is fake”)

Restore Porsche PIWIS II Universal Image to VM:
1.Create two virtual hard drives – lets say – VHD-A and VHD-B;VHD-A will be the main VHD of your VM into which you are restoring the image.
VHD-B is just a temporary VHD to hold the image file for restore
2. Copy the image file (.adi file) into VHD-B
3. Attach both VHD-A and VHD-B to the VM
4. In the VMs CD drive, mount the recovery disc iso
5. Start the VM and boot into the recovery CD
6. Follow the instructions given in the archive to restore the image
7. After image finish restoring, turn off the VM and detach VHD-B and unmount the recovery disc iso from the VM
8. Start the VM – after it finish initializing, install guest additions.
9. Done – you can delete VHD-B from your system

Theoretically this image should be able to restore and boot into any laptop which supports Windows XP (hopefully no BSOD on booting). Also you can restore it to a Virtual Machine

My aim with this image was to create an Porsche Piwis3 image that anyone can restore and use without any difficulty.
This image might be more suited to someone restoring it to a laptop other than a Panasonic CF-30 as I have removed all the Panasonic drivers. You can restore it to a CF-30, just need to reinstall / restore all the drivers

Easiest method to re-install drivers – In the laptop you are planning to restore the image -> If you are already running Win XP in that laptop, use software called “Double Driver” to backup all the drivers. After restoring the PIWIS image, restore the drivers – hardly take 5-10 min for complete driver restore and it’s all one-click operation.
