The checksum for uefi-ntfs.img has broken.

K900 commented on 2020-08-17 12:04 (UTC)

Released a stable version of the package, please switch to that:

ValdikSS commented on 2020-08-15 08:21 (UTC)

@K900, done. Version 0.1.6 is out.

K900 commented on 2020-08-06 14:48 (UTC)

I'd actually probably prefer to switch to a stable pkgver here, since upstream doesn't seem to change often.

@ValdikSS can you please tag 0.1.6 on the repo?

katt commented on 2020-08-03 16:11 (UTC)

Please add a pkgver() function.

K900 commented on 2020-08-03 11:38 (UTC)

Done, thank you.

please update uefi-ntfs.img checksum

ValdikSS commented on 2020-04-24 08:44 (UTC)

@buzo, what do you mean by 'partitioning fails'? Could you provide the log?

buzo commented on 2020-04-24 08:42 (UTC)

Does not work. Partitioning the hard drive on install fails, no matter what I tried. I have then successfully created the USB install via a Windows 10 VM.

K900 commented on 2020-03-21 09:13 (UTC)

Thanks, updated the hash

Failed check of uefi-ntfs.img (windows2usb-git 0.1.5-2) I have re-download it few times: Yes image is changed so checksum should be changed accordingly or tag of rufus should be fixed as v3.8

intgr, what do you mean by "deleted my Linux EFI boot configuration"? Do you mean it deleted your boot menu entry? Anyway, please fill a detailed bug report on the project's github page. I have no clue why it could alter EFI settings and not boot Windows installer. It doesn't have such code.

intgr commented on 2019-07-09 20:03 (UTC) (edited on 2019-07-09 20:04 (UTC) by intgr)

Beware, this didn't work for me. Every time I tried booting off this, it deleted my Linux EFI boot configuration (which I needed to restore using Arch Linux installer). The Windows 10 installer wouldn't boot off USB regardless of whether I tried EFI or legacy boot.

K900 commented on 2019-02-25 10:08 (UTC)

Thanks! Updated the package

ValdikSS commented on 2019-02-24 01:54 (UTC)

Done. Now it also searches in /usr/share/windows2usb/uefi-ntfs.img

K900 commented on 2019-02-14 08:45 (UTC)

Any chance you could update the script to look for it in a FHS compliant location like /usr/share or /usr/lib?

ValdikSS commented on 2019-02-13 22:18 (UTC)

They do, see It's linked in the description of windows2usb.

K900 commented on 2019-02-13 22:16 (UTC)

Yes, I couldn't find a good way to build it from source, and they don't seem to have prebuilt releases, either.

ValdikSS commented on 2019-02-13 20:38 (UTC)

You forgot to bundle uefi-ntfs.bin from Rufus project. windows2usb assumes it's presense in the same directory, but you can patch dirpath variable assignment, it's used only for uefi-ntfs.bin currently.
