    Windows 7

    Good tip. But that requires a certain discipline which I guess I don't have.

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    The upside with WinPESE is you maintain a cleaner OS... And only need 1 Boot Disk..

    It is my personal preference due to the downside of having to find the USB flash drive or DVD and select it to boot from at the right time in the boot process.

    And when you perform one of the operations that can only be done under WINPE environment you click apply and the program tells you that it is going to reboot the computer and complete the action on the next reboot.

    There's nothing wrong with using Kyhi's WINPE boot disk. There's nothing wrong with installing the programs. There's nothing wrong with using command line commands when possible. You will notice what I stated in my post #3: "This is what I would do:".

    and when I am playing around a lot with partitions, Insider versions, external drives, etc. to see what works and what doesn't work, I like to have all the programs in one little square of 3 or 4 small icons on my start menu that I don't have to reboot to use. That's just my personal preference. And I like being able to see the big picture in graphical format and like have more options than what built in Windows utilities will provide.
