Windows 7: Looking for a New BartPE w/ AHCI-GPT & UEFI Support...

Looking for a New BartPE w/ AHCI-GPT & UEFI Support...

Hello everybody!

I'm sorry if this topic has been posted earlier, I searched with no luck.

For years I used a utility CD based on BartPE with several programs
that allowed me to Live boot windows XP off of a CD and manipulate the
hard drives on a computer. Since newer systems operate with AHCI/RAID
and GPT Filetables, or UEFI Firmware instead of BIOS, my little Bart
PE utility image has run into a compatibility brick wall!

I am now in search of a similar utility CD, DVD, or USB image that
will allow me to boot externally from the affected system's OS and
manipulate the data on its drives. Can anybody recommend a utility ISO
or USB image that will allow me to access AHCI/RAID or GPT Based
drives? I would also like for the utility to have UEFI support and be
able to access a network.

Your time is extremely appreciated!

Do a search on the web for Hirens Boot CD. Also vist the link I am posting, which is a roll your own WinPe evironment.

Hirens is a linux solution which works for me.

The WinPe route takes some work but I really like using it. The web site has apps already written so that you can add programs to your boot environment.
