creating windows 10 pe

download windows 10 adk(4gb) from

install, select only two items (3,4gb):
deployment tools
windows preinstallation environment (windows pe)

after install is done:
-run cmd as admin:
-to create x86 iso:

copype x86 C:\WinPE_x86
MakeWinPEMedia /ISO C:\WinPE_x86 c:\temp\winpex86.iso

-to create 64bit iso (probably cannot run x86 progs.)
copype amd64 C:\WinPE_amd64
MakeWinPEMedia /ISO C:\winpe_amd64 c:\temp\winpeamd64.iso

file is about 250mb


-1. use liliusb to create bootable usb. windows7 usb download tool probably works too.

-2. as admin type this
Bootsect.exe /nt60 X:

"X:" is the drive letter of your USB stick.

you can add your own programs to usb.
Create 'programs' dir on usb and copy programs dirs there:
7zip portable
a43 (from bart pe)
hdtune with oledlg.dll
turbonavigator - works but shows error. also needs oledlg.dll

everest halts the machine, dont copy it to pe!

When booting pc, select boot menu(usually press f12 while booting), and then select usb

after machine is booted:
cd to d:\
cd programs
cd a43

copy files or whatever.

ROBOCOPY TO copy files?

robocopy "f:\source dir" "d:\destination\source dir" /E /ndl /nfl /mt /w:0 /r:0
add /COPYALL if you wish to copy permissions too: robocopy "f:\source dir" "d:\destination\source dir" /E /ndl /nfl /mt /w:0 /r:0 /COPYALL
/ndl /nfl - dont display copied files, dirs, for faster
/mt - multitred useful with lots of small files
/w:0 /r:0 wait 0, retries 0 for files in use.
note will not recreate mydir if not told specifically
copyall - copy file acccess lists, sec. rights.
