Windows 7: Create your own Special Repair disc

Create your own Special Repair disc

Finally go it working.

Very simple, just d/l the attached .zip.

Inside is a .7z file, which you unzip onto your Hard drive.

Size:  26.5 KB

You will have a folder C:\SIW2REC7

Name:  REC7-1.jpg
Views: 218
Size:  11.3 KB

In there , just rt click and run as admin on the runmeasadminx64.cmd, or runmeasadminx86.cmd.

Name:  REC7-0.jpg

Size:  13.9 KB

Should take a couple of mins to make a boot disc for you.

When you boot it up, 64 bit users will get this:

Create your own Special Repair disc-rec7-4-.jpg

All those options will be in there - except macrium and partition guru.

If you want to include Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download and PartitionGuru Free - Download - you need to install them . Then they will be included automatically.

Partition Guru free is an excellent partition manager ( the only one I have found which is native 64 bit ). The free version works for 512kb mbr style - just like the macrium free version.



32 bit users will need to run runmeasadminx86.cmd instead.

Running the runmeasadminx86.cmd.gives you more options - you can include paragon and partition wizard, for example.

64 bit users can run runmeasadminx86.cmd as well - it will download a small part of WAIK (130MB ) and make the 32 bit pe for you.

64 bit users can run runmeasadminx64.cmd first (don't bother making an iso ), then run
runmeasadminx86.cmd and both will be included on one boot disc with a menu to select.


Updated version:

Updated again to v4 - fixed extraction issue, fixed adding old version of macrium - now only adds new version of macrium if you have it installed:

Si,

I understand everything up to

I already have Macrium Reflect free x64 ver.4.2 build 3775 installed so that will be included when I run your utility.

So when I do run it I do this "64 bit users can run runmeasadminx64.cmd first (don't bother making an iso ), then run
runmeasadminx86.cmd and both will be included on one boot disc with a menu to select".

But then I still have to make an .iso, Correct?

Yes, if you want both:

Run runmeasadminx64.cmd first - say no when it asks if you want to make an .iso)

The run runmeasadminx86.cmd - say yes when it asks if you want to make an iso.

You will get one iso with both wim's in it.

When it extracts I see the first Window, When I click on runmeasadminx64 the Cmd window flashes then disappears an goes back to runmeasadminx64.

I don't think I'm following the instructions right, I'll try again tomorrow.

Those com samples aren't needed.

I have uploaded a new version with a couple of other little fixes.

It is attached to first post.

I unzip your new version with 7z and get to here:
Create your own Special Repair disc-si-repair-utility3.jpg

If I right click "Run as Administrator" the screen blinks several times, stops, and nothing happens.


But when I click on runmeasadminx64.cmd I get this:
Create your own Special Repair disc-si-repair-utility-4.jpg

Am I missing a helper to make runmeasadminx64 a valid application?


My OS is fully updated and I've run SFC and CHKDSK, could there be something in the un-zipping process?
I have the SIW2REC7 Folder in C:\


Can you point out what un-zipping process I should use?

No idea what is going there.

It is just a simple batch file. Standard .7z file.

Two slight possibilities:

1) After you have downloaded the .zip, you need to rt click >properties >Unblock>Apply>OK.

You need to do that as it has come from another computer (mine).

You must be familiar with that - you need to do it with almost everything you download.

That is the only reason I can think of why it isn't extracting - they shouldn't be 0kb.

2) I am using 7z 929 - maybe there is something different about the compression algorithm ., but I doubt it.

Thanks.
I have the problem

7z 929 uses lzma2 as default.

I have repacked it with 7z 465.

It will be fine for you now.

Uploading new version v3 right now.

It will take about 2 mins.

Updated again to v4 http://www.sevenforums.com/attachmen...c-siw2r7v4.zip

BTW - it only works for macrium v5 - macrium v4 installed components will not run properly in pe.

You can d/l the free macrium v5 - it is backwards compatible and will be fine with any images you made with macrium v4.

Thanks for reminding me - I will add a check to make sure we are not trying to include macrium v4.

Alternatively, you can just use the free macrium pe plugin that they issued with v4 ( runs in any 32 bit pe ).

Not sure if it still around as they don't sell v4 anymore - they did post it up on their site for anyone to d/l .

Here is the pe plugin for macrium v4: Macrium.zip
