Porsche Piwis II Universal Image Installation Guide:

If you are restoring the Piwis image to a laptop, use software like RUFUS to make the restore program ISO file to a bootable USB thumb drive.

Or if it’s to a virtual machine, then just simply mount the ISO on the virtual machine.

If the screen gets stuck at this command prompt, then just simply close the prompt.

Click restore and then click the path button. Select the backup file(adi.file) and then click on next.

The program detects the selected backup is a system image, would you like to do a system restore?

Click “Yes” here.

Make sure this box is checked.

Select the drive into which you want to restore the image and then click next.

Make sure that the “enable universal restore” box is checked, so that the system can boot on your laptop.

If you are restoring the image to a virtual machine, you can leave this option unchecked.

Make sure that on unallocated space remains at the end of the partition.

Next, click “OK” and then click “Start Restore”.

After restoring and booting into the system, install drivers and imprint the texter with the method of your choosing. Turbofans method can be found in the following

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, then 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 PIWIS 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, then restore the drivers – hardly take 5-10 min for complete driver restore and it’s all one-click operation.

MB Star C3 09 2018 Xentry cannot work on W204

Mb Star C3 Star diagnostic system failed to work on Mercedes W204? Here is the customer solution. You are at your risk!

Problem:

I have DELL D630 with Xentry 09/2015 and MB Star C3 multiplexer. I have connected many cars (W202, W203, W210, W211, W245, etc) and there is no problem with connection – everything is working like a charm. Some days ago, I have bought W204 C280 from 2007. After I choose model, engine and transmission, and I go to diagnostic I see this:

“The diagnosis application is being started…”

mb-star-c3-w204-1
and few seconds later this:

“Initialization of the multiplexer has failed”

mb-star-c3-w204-2
My Mux is not compatible with W204? I searched few hours without success.

Customer solution:
W204 and X204 is the last Mercedes models which working without some special modifications.
You can try:

First try in toolkit.ini delete line skipcomports=all and set line usecomport=2 then you will see in SDconnect toolkit PartD on display after mux connection.

First save your original file for sure.

Try look into C:\Userdata\Config\Xentry\driver – slave.ini and set there com port which you have used for PartD.

Report:

There was no change because I didn’t restarted system. After restart work perfect.

Your solution work perfectly! Probem solved. Everything is working like a charm.

Obd2tool.com solution:

If you need to deal with newer Mercedes models, better go for SD Connect C4 or Xentry C5 diagnostic system.
