    imagex /capture


    Dear Sir ,

    I've made a simple Win8PE and I use imagex to copy it to my harddisk and add the Win8PE to boot menu :

    imagex /apply boot.wim 1 H:\ /verify

    Now I want this H:\Win8PE return to boot.wim , how can I do it ? I've tried :

    imagex /capture h: d:\boot.wim "Drive H"

    Then I put this d:\boot.wim back to the original Win8PE.iso but boot with a blue screen

    Please help

    hello SIW2 ,

    Thanks for you answer , it works.

    Why I ask this question ? As you know WinPE can never install software and modify registry , even so , nothing will be saved. What I thought was if I copy the WinPE to harddisk , boot it up , then modify , finally imagex /capture back to boot.wim. Then things will be change.

    After test , I was wrong. Even WinPE install to harddisk , nothing can be changed. So is there a way to install software in WinPE in harddisk and can be saved ?

    Thanks

    Yes, what software do you have in mind?

    There is not much that will run in native 64 bit pe. Unless you include 32 bit support, of course, which is very convoluted to explain.

    If you are using 32 bit pe, pretty much everything can be made to work ( some limitations due to size of net framework ).

    hello SIW2 ,

    I've also tried 32 bit pe , but with same result. Software installed can their resgistry can't be saved. I thing the way of adding software to pe in this way is impossible

    I do it all the time.

    You need to add any needed reg entries manually to the hive.

    hello SIW2 ,

    Actually I want to add Acronis 2013 to Win8PE x64 , for Win8PE x86 , Acronis 2013 can be added programmatically , but x64 not.
    Would you mind to tell me how to add Acronis 2013 manually in x64 step by step and the way.

    Thanks

    I have Paragon. aomei and macrium all working perfectly in pe4 x64.

    I don't use Acronis, so I would need to get their pe plugin x64 - I assume they do one. Then I could figure it out.

    Pretty sure snapman.sys is a boot time driver.

    What do you have already in your pe? What are you using as the cmd line ( default is winpeshl.exe ) and what are you using as the shell (default is cmd.exe )?

    I use windows explorer as the shell. I could do a simpler one if needed.

    hello SIW2 ,

    I download Win8PESE from MSFN forum , which I'm very sure , you know it's WinBuilder complie.
    I can intergrate Acronis TrueImage Home 2013 to Win8PEx86 by it's Acronis WinPE ISO Builder , unfortunately this program doesn't support Win8PEx64 and run with error when unmounting.

    As I made all my Windows images by Acronis TrueImage , and I want the Win8PEx64 UEFI boot. That's why I want to have Acronis TrueImage 2013 in Win8PEx64.

    Normally , in the other forums , member all say Acronis TrueImage doesn't support 64bit PE.

    But I found Acronis Company itself said it's TrueImage does support WIn8PE

    According to your link, it works with win8pe - but only the x86 version.

    That is strange, macrium and aomei include the x64 files with their free versions, and paragon has it in the paid versions - ( no extra purchase required. )

    You might just have to stick with x86 pe, or get a different imaging program.

    If it could run portably, you could add 32 bit support to x64 pe and run it that way.

    Unfortunately, from the look of Diskwizard - it needs drivers start type 0, so it isn't really portable.
