Making PE disks that're basically an OS that you can run on a USB drive and add a bunch of stuff to to make it seem like a diagnostic OS doesn't appeal to me as much as actual GUI DOS/command line/Super FDisk, etc. utilities and tools. THOSE are the utilities that have saved my butt before, and many precious partitions, harddrives, incorrectly flashed BIOS' etc. The PE versions are nice for more simplistic things, but believe me, if you get into just trying to make these across various OS', you'll want one with about 130-150 steroid-infused programs that have been re-coded and work outside of an OS of any kind, even a PE. And this is definitely no knock on good PE builds like in this thread. Perhaps I like the rush of not having an "Are you REALLY sure you want to do this?" pop-up
Good Post Dr ...
My only thought posting my comment was you made that for yourself, and for your computer, plus you added registered apps that you bought. I just didn't think that you had any thoughts of making it public....or sending it to someone thru private mail.
Take Care, Mike
As stated, the disk by the OP is good. I used it on my laptop and found out I had a slight harddrive issue that regular chkdsk seemed to miss. This is a nice PE rescue disk because it's simple and isn't cluttered with a bunch of junk (so many are). I added my own odds 'n ends but mostly I use DISM to add drivers more than anything, and update some things to full versions (since I have purchased the full versions). Overall this is a great recovery disk for those wanting to troubleshoot outside of Windows itself.
Modify PESE is a script to help users make modifications to the current rescue disks,
How they are used and what is added, updated or modified is for the user to decide...
These where created for the general forum user..
Thank very much for all your help in this -- I feel a lot better, now.
Great stuff, and a great collection of tools, Kyhi!
On another note: I've been reading over the thread 5 months after your Dad's diagnosis. I hope he's doing OK and that you are, too. My Mom managed to survive both abdominal and lung cancer in her mid-60s and made it all the way to age 90 before she passed away in 2009. My best wishes for your Dad, you, and your family in handling this crisis.
PS: have read far enough along now to learn about your Dad's passing. FWIW, I think you made a brave -- and correct -decision to let him sleep his way out of this world into the next. There comes a point when pain and suffering can no longer be endured and must be bypassed by whatever means are available. My condolences to you and your family. Treasure your good memories: they are the most important things any of us can leave behind.
