Windows 7: 10 gig recovery partiton

06 Dec 2009   #21

Vista U32 , now Win7 64

well... you don't need 3rd party tools really... create the wimre .wim image with imagex, capture C, delete, delete system small one, reformat in windows setup or better, in the wimre, all those 3 spaces (will now be your new C:), reapply C to new C.

I'll add this option to my project build of suck.

winpe Yes

bcdedit.exe /set {bootmgr} toolsdisplayorder {b48cfc66-d1fe-11de-92d0-001966657855} /addlast

If you prefer to add it to the regular boot menu:

bcdedit /displayorder {b48cfc66-d1fe-11de-92d0-001966657855} /addlast

there you go, a proper useful reply! :)
However, I would perhaps add the /detecthal yes option for the ramdisk :)

Do I Need To Keep Empty Partiton?
I just concluded some hard disk cleanup. I had W7 plus Zorin on two separate drives. I decided I wanted Zorin on the Mint drive, and the W7 drives with only W7.
