Modify startup repair partition

Hello. Windows 7 startup repair is it's own OS, right? So it must be stored somewhere. Does anyone here know where?

Be easier if you post it here:

Modify startup repair partition-capture.png

C:\Recovery\somelongnumber\WinRE.wim

It is hidden, so you will have to go to folder options and show hidden AND protected os files.

You need to take ownership to access the folder.

This appears to be recovery environment though... I think startup repair is different because it defaults to an automatic repair window.

BTW, can this be run in VBox? That'd be cool.

Um, so I'm using 7-zip to edit the image, and when I try to delete a file, I get "No such interface supported"

Did I miss something?

Delete what file from what image?

You can try 7zip 932 to delete things from a .wim if that is what you mean.
