    Booting winpe content from a OS installed hard disk machine


    I have a win 7 OS installed machine. I want to boot from a D drive by copying the winpe bootable files into D drive without formatting the hard disk or disturbing the OS in the machine. Is it possible to boot to the machine from the D drive?

    Is there any settings I can specify in the boot menu settings. If I check the boot menu settings, there are options like boot from DVD drive, boot from USB disk, boot from the hard disk are available. How can we do this? please help if any solution is there for this.

    Appreciate your help in this.Thanks in advance.

    Almost all Motherboards have a 'one time boot menu key' that you can tap when the manufacturer logo appears. It will allow you to boot from any bootable drive without changing your settings in BIOS.

    We do not know what your system specs are, so can't provide you with many suggestions. Most motherboards are different.

    You can go into bios and change the boot order making the drive you want to boot from 1st boot device, save and exit. Once you finish you can go back to bios and change the boot order to what it is right now.
