    AOMEI PE Builder? USB Mouse and WiFi


    I have found AOMEI PE Builder 1.5 Free. It works in pretty straight ahead fashion for building a boot USB to boot my Toshiba Laptop with Windows 8.0. However I cannot find any step by step to get it to load drivers for my USB Mouse. When I boot the PE all I have is Touchpad. Which drives me nuts.

    I do not see any .inf files that match the mouse driver names in device manager.

    Also it gets an error when it tries to load the wireless network driver. These two things together severely limit the usefulness of the emergency USB. An av scanner would not be able to update its database.

    I am also on the product's forum. But it will not send me the verification email that would allow me to post. So I cannot ask there yet.

    Have a look at this....It may be with Windows PE as it very limited.

    In the FAQ for PE Builder under My USB Mouse Does Not Work it just says "add the usb mouse drivers" when making the image. But it gives no clue how to do so. Also I see people on forums say "it just adds them" meaning the USB mouse drivers. Well it doesn't add them in my case and I have no clue how to do it manually.

    Therefore I post.

    Macrium Reflect even supports adding 3rd party portable programs, but you have to buy a Technician's License for the Server Edition to get that support.

    But there should be a way to get the WiFi to work at least using PE Builder.

    I have a feeling the PE may not be able to see other USB drives. Maybe I will boot it and insert a USB to see what happens.

    See this video as well.....seems you'll need to install portable apps to use with Windows PE using Aomei PE builder......
