    NO need to load any drivers, you just using LOAD DRIVERS to see the drives.

    Is part 2 assuming after part 1 I have a functional computer and can get to the desktop? Thank you.
    Needs to be made on a working PC.

    I was able to pull it up so I can view drives.

    Now in part 2 I am stuck at this

    I do not see winre.wim in that folder?

    I only see BIN folder and winre64-runmeasadmin

    Not clear to me what you are trying to do.

    If you want to make the winpe media, placing your own customised winre.wim there is optional. ( In that particular case, the poster wanted to make 8.0 winpe, tho he was running a different os. That is why he put an 8.0 winre.wim there. )

    The normal way is just to run the .cmd as administrator, that will try and find the standard winre.wim already supplied as part of win7/8.

    I have a pc with win 7 and a windows 8.1 installation dvd inserted.

    I saw this by googling...link

    I'm not sure how to get the winre.wim file... and was hoping the link I found would allow me to do that from the win8 installation media

    Quite easy to extract it from install.wim.

    If you are trying to go back to 8.0 using 8.0 recovery partition, then you would need 8.0 winre.wim.

    What exactly are you trying to do ?

    [ no point in mucking about with dism mounting, just use 7-zip, it can copy stuff out of lots of compressed files, including .wims ]

    My main problem is basically this: stuck in automatic repair loop, none of the options or previous methods have worked and I cannot format bc I need info off the HDDs.

    Now I can either do that by your method apparently, or I would be fine with somehow connecting my two HDDs in RAID0 to another computer and getting the data off that way...(although I am not quite sure how to connect HDDs in RAID0 to another computer to extract data...)

    Honestly, someone suggested an idea and at this point i'm all for trying whatever your method accomplishes...

    The winpe has an explorer so you can copy anything off easily.

    You could use one made on windows 7. The only thing is you need to turn off secure boot to boot 7winpe on a machine that came with 8 pre installed.

    If you know how to turn off secure boot, then just go ahead run the .cmd as administrator and it will find your win7 winre.wim make a win7 winpe for you. ( That assumes you are using 64 bit win7 ).

    My desktop was upgraded to win8.1 from windows 8 but was previously windows 7.

    So I used 7-zip to get to the install.wim from the windows 8.1 dvd and I copied the winre.wim to the folder c:\winre64 and it disappears immediately after it's copied....

    I am using a laptop with Win 7 to do this by the way.

    Perhaps you need to have hidden files showing?

    You would probably be better just running the .cmd file. If the hidden 8.1 winre is there , it will be used, but you don't have one component that would be good to include. That is explorerframe.dll from 8.1. Use 7-zip to get it from install.wim system32, copy it into RE64\BIN\x64\windows\system32.

    ( You can show hidden and system files in folder options )
