Windows 7: Create your own Special Repair disc

OK -you can either install macrium v5, OR you could do this:

1. extract SIW2R7V3 onto C .

2. Look in BIN\X86\Program Files.

There is already a folder called Macrium.

Open macrium pe file from the post above.

Rename ReflectPE.exe to Reflect.exe.

Put those ( except peexplorer.exe )files in SIW2R7V3\BIN\X86\Program files \Macrium

It already contains a better peexplorer.exe.

3. To stop the .cmd adding in your installed macrium v4 ( which won't work) just replace runmeasadminx86.cmd with this one: ( will post it up in a sec. ).

Can you check your installed macrium v4 does not have a file called PrimoBurner.DLL ?

Is it possible to get one of these with WinRE, or is it too copyright protected?

If the installer is freely given by MS forums then what would be the objection to WinRE which can only be used to Repair?

If you run the same bit version as you have installed - winre is in there already.

64 but user running runmeasadminX64.cmd will get winre included.

32 bit user running runmeasadminX86.cmd will get winre included.

It is only if you are running 64 bit o/s, and you want to create 32 bit wim so you can have partition wizard, paragon, etc in it - then you do not get winre in the 32 bit wim.

That is why if you have 64 bit os - you run runmeasadminX64.cmd first ( you can say NO to making an iso ).

Then you run runmeasadminX86.cmd - say Yes to creating an iso. Then you have both in one iso and can select from the boot menu.

MS repair options e.g. startup repair, system restore etc .. are on the Button that says RECOPT

Hi SI, I didn't forget about you, It's just this is the first time I've ever done this and all the steps are new to me.

I'm going to try and break this down as to how I had to accomplish this task and I'll answer your questions first. This will undoubtedly be a long post.

Okay!

My timing wasn't right with yours and I upgraded to the 7z929alpha version before I realized you had already created SIW2R7V3 and by the time I had that copacetic you had already pushed out V4.

So for the rest of this telling I am dealing with your SIW2R7v4 and 7z929alpha.

Quote:
Can you check your installed macrium v4 does not have a file called PrimoBurner.DLL ?
I have checked and neither mac.v4 and mac.v5 contain PrimoBurner.dll.

I was sure you had at least one more question for me, but I can't locate it.

What happened to v2? You seemed to go from SIW2R7 to SIW2R7v3 to SIW2R7v4. No matter, moot point.

----------------------

Even with 929 I kept having the same result where I had 0Kb so I looked at your first attachment in your OP where you show the 7z settings you used to extract the .zip file, I was using the 7z defaults when I made those earlier extractions.
I made changes to make sure that the; extract to (SIW2R7v4), Path mode (Full Path Names), Overwrite mode (Ask Before Overwrite) that you had showing were the same, and the .zip file you attached created SIW2R7v4 in C:\

Create your own Special Repair disc-sirp6.jpg

But I had one more step. I had to extract that file into that same Folder (SIW2R7v4), and this was the result
Create your own Special Repair disc-si-repair-utility2.jpg

From there I ran x64 runme, then said no to the .iso. ran the x86 when asked to run .iso said Y.
This is what the end result looked like on my C:\
Create your own Special Repair disc-sirp7.jpg

Using ImgBurn I wanted to write the ISO Folder to the disk, but it wouldn't set-up so I used the EASYPE_MULIT.iso file. This is the result after the ImgBurn.
Create your own Special Repair disc-si-rp5.jpg

If everything looks okay to you and if not, I can show more files from that .iso conversion. SI, please correct me if I am wrong, and Greg, you can pitch in here if you want I don't think SI would mind.

From here I need to re-start my machine and enter my bios (F8).
Reset my boot order to DVD-CD as first choice.
Then shut back down.



With the new repair CD-R in my D:\ drive, restart my machine, and.


I should see this:




From there I should be able to repair my OS (Not that I need to, but this is a handy tool to have) And, I am hoping that I can check to see if there are any incorrect files that reside on our machine and repair or replace them.

By the time you see your note in your email about my post I will in all probability try this to ascertain what will happen when I boot with this disk. I won't be making any changes, I just want to see if it works.

But not right now, it's late here, and I'm tired it's been a long day.

EDIT:
I meant to put this ImgBurn log in, in case it shows any problems.

Looks ok from your screenshots.

Yes, just boot the iso and hopefully should be fine.

FYI - if you just want to test any pe discs you make - you can boot them off the HD before you decide to burn an iso.

Add the .iso to your boot menu with easybcd - it will defrag it first - only takes a few secs.

Anak,

I have just seen from your screenshots that I made a mistake with the x86 in v4.

If you boot the cd you have made, the 64 bit should work perfectly. But the 32 bit won't work.

To fix that, replace your existing runmeasadminx86.cmd with this one. Then run runmeasadminx86-ANAKONLY.cmd it will rename your existing existing .iso and make a new one.

It's just a regular .zip RunMeAsAdminX86-ANAKONLY.zip



That should be fine then .

I will update to v5 soon - might include a couple of other options in the x86 when I do that.

I'm glad I waited I haven't run mine yet to try it out. Will the x86 just refuse to run?

Okay SI, RunMeAsAdminX86-ANAKONLY is in the SIW2R7v4 folder.

Now, because it is there, when I click on it to run and it reaches the point where I say Y to making the .iso. Will it also include the x64 version?

That's my take on you saying:

Should I wait for v5, will it be that different? Aww, what the heck I can use the practice to see If I can get this running.

Yes, because you ran runmeasadminx64.cmd previously.

That should all work now, I hope. It works for me.

If you take a peek in the folder called ISO\sources, you should see BOOT.WIM and BOOTX86.WIM.

The boot menu will have been adjusted to let you select either one when you boot the _MULTI.iso

New version may include the option to add in TODO backup - it is a very good program , but fell out of favour slightly when they stopped including winpe maker with the free one.

On a different note:

I have made a somewhat similar one for Vista users.

Surprised I managed to get all of these things to work.

The only fly in the ointment is I haven't got infdefaultinstall to work yet - meaning you can't load drivers on the fly into your running Vista pe ( unless you included TODO - that includes it's own driver install function. )

Maybe I should see if I can get advpack.dll to do it.
