Was fiddling with the registry and broke my Win 7 installation (Lenovo y460p). Now I'd like to recover some files before I go back to factory default. I've created a Windows PE bootable USB stick with AOMEI Windows PE Builder and it sees the HDD but doesn't see the SSD. The BIOS says it's a Samsung MMCRE32GEDXP-MVBL1. I've tried to find drivers but the only download I can find is from doubledriver and when I download it the drivers are called doubledriver.exe. That sounds a bit fishy to me. In the past I've collected all drivers for this laptop from the Lenovo site but they don't seem to have any SSD drivers. Does anybody have any advise which drivers I could use? Perhaps some generic drivers? I would very much like to recover a few files from the SSD. Thank you very much.
I sometimes make my own customized Windows PE builds, and for some time I wanted to get the full Windows Explorer functionality (Taskbar/Start Menu/File Browser/etc.) working on WinPE. I know that some custom distributions of WinPE 4.0 circulating online have the Explorer (I.e.http://windowsmatters.com/2013/04/30/windows-8-based-pe-boot-disk-with-explorer-shell-and-all-my-favorite-apps/), but I still want to make my own so I could not have all the unnecessary stuff (i.e. Web Browser, DWM) that some of these distros have. Could someone point me to a easy tutorial showing me how could I do this? P.S. By Windows 7 Explorer, I am referencing this hack that allows the Windows 7 Explorer to work on Windows 8 (not 8.1+):http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/157302-windows-7-explorer-for-windows-8/ That hack grabs certain Win7 Explorer files and sets those as the default shell. I remember that working very well in my Win8 install. However, just copying the Win7 explorer files and pasting them to the boot.wim file does not work.
