How to create a UFD with Windows 7 64-bit PE

How do I create a bootable USB Flash Drive that loads the Windows Preinstallation Environment (PE)?

* HP Elitebook 8460p
* running Win 7 64-bit
* formatted a USB Flash Drive 16GB to NTFS
* inserted the USB Flash Drive into a USB port on the notebook
* installed Windows AIK to C:\Program Files\Windows AIK on the notebook

What do I need to do to create bootable USB Flash Drive that loads Windows PE?

Probably easiest to d/l this boot media, and use rufus to create ufd from it.

Windows 7 64-bit SP1

I d/l Rufus, plugged in 17514x64-v3.iso, booted from UFD and Win 7 64-bit PE loaded followed by SIW2. Next I plugged in the Acronis Disk Director iso. When I booted Win 7 64-bit PE loaded followed by ADD12.

Thank you for help SWI2.
