I have to download a Windows 7 SP1 ISO first.
The last time I tried to make one, it failed during the "Preparing Your Desktop" stage.

Worse my operating systems HDD seems to be dying.
I've had to "fix" it twice this week, because my PC locked up and then refused to boot.
I couldn't boot into Linux Mint either.

Of course Check Disk (chkdsk /f /R) reported no errors.
I'll have to download the WD HDD tool.

I think I broke XP (this morning) when I used the Macrium Boot Repair option.
If I'm lucky it might be a power supply issue.
My power LED has been acting strangely recently (randomly not running at full brightness).

OK, now I'm ready ...

OK, now I'm ready to attempt this.
I've got the ISO and my PC has been behaving itself.

I think that the problem was that the useless SATA cable somehow worked itself loose from the connector.
I hate those SATA connectors.

Before I start I have a couple of questions (I guess that you edited your post - post #10).

The 2 commands highlighted above, look identical to me (apart from the programs mentioned).
Is that the correct syntax?

You mentioned that the program adds drivers to the PE ISO.
Does it include the drivers for my hardware too?

There are some drivers in the d/l , they will be added automatically, usb3.0 mainly. If you want to include/remove any drivers, just add or remove them in PE764v2\BIN\Drivers.

Taskbar pin should be:

PINT %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe,Taskband

If you have the 7sp1x64 dvd already, it only takes 6 or 7 mins for the program to make winpe for you.

Look forward to hearing back from you when you have done it. About 10 mins, then.

When you add Portable Apps, are they added inside the WinPE or added to the root of the drive with a program Like PStart (this is the program I use anyways) when adding portable apps withen the PE, it adds that much data to the amount of RAM it takes up, correct? So it's Always best to add your apps in the root of the drive with PStart as a launcher for your programs, which should be tidied up in a Folder called "Portable Apps"

I don't use pstart. The idea is everything is in the wim and run from ram. All the tools I use are in mine, just in the program files folder. With a lot of very large programs in there, including the mighty paragon, it comes out just under 400mb. It will be tight to run the 64 bit on 1gb ram , but you won't be running 64 Windows 7 on 1gb anyhow.

I also have a 32 bit versions which are smaller and will be ok on 1gb ram.

I hand build my pe, the way I like it. This is a way of creating my build (almost) just by using the 7 dvd as the source.

I use WinBuilder, then change little things, and add my (about 1gb) of apps to the root of the drive in a folder called Portable Apps and use PStart as a launcher, because of the wide use of apps I use, I plan on trimming down soon, but havn't gotten to it yet But I Will try this program, thanks very much
