Windows 7: Create a Live Vista DVD (Runs from the DVD)

31 Mar 2009   #1

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers
Create a Live Vista DVD (Runs from the DVD)

Hi guys
I've been using the BARTPE stuff for "Donkeys years" but wanted to see if there was something newer.

This works fine . This is based on VISTA but hopefully a Windows 7 version will come.

It's a bit fiddly but use re-writable media and then you can have several goes without wasting a lot of media.

It basically builds a Bootable Live DVD environment which doesn't run off your "C" or windows drive.

You can add plugins / other programs.

Excellent for recovery of broken systems etc etc.

Beginner's Guide to Creating a VistaPE CD

(If you are creating this from an X-64 system download and install Microsoft WAIK first or it*might* not work correctly - depending on your choices.

Examples refer to build 074 of winbuilder -- later build is 076 --not tested but should be the same or at least very similar -- build 074 of winbuilder is still current and available however).
