New Win PE FAQ


Recommended Posts

Notice - Unlocked thread so people can post suggestions to add to the list. This is to be an index of helpful WinPE threads on MSFN only.

WinPE is short for Windows Preinstallation Environment. It is a trimmed down version of Windows that is designed to be used to install Windows onto computers. It can be done to make unattended setup disks, or network aware scripted environments. It is also used as a troubleshooting or testing tool. It is the current equivalent to the Live CD idea of Linux. It isn't a full blown operating system. This guide will help you understand what it is all about.
