    Create a Recovery Partition and Recovery Image


    Well I finished my project - the program script allows me to create MBR and GPT hard drive partitions with a recovery image partition. The script also allows me to install 3 different versions of windows. and lastly it allows me to capture a recovery (push button reset) image. which can then be used to create recovery media..


    Here is the Menu Snippet:
    (A) CREATE A "BIOS_MBR TYPE" PARTITION STRUCTURE
    (B) CREATE A "UEFI_GPT TYPE" PARTITION STRUCTURE
    (C) CAPTURE AND CREATE A "BIOS_MBR TYPE" RECOVERY
    (D) CAPTURE AND CREATE A "UEFI TYPE" RECOVERY
    (I) INSTALL MICROSOFT WINDOWS FROM THIS USB DRIVE
    (X) QUIT THIS PROGRAM

    WinPE 5.1 was the preinstallation environment use for testing

    Good one! I always have to go back and look up the procedure and commands when doing this. Really a help for an old brain.
