    I have the feeling that you made a mistake to answer.

    Thanks

    No, I didn't. The exe files are inside the boot.wim image and to see them you have to mount the boot.wim file.

    Windows PE Image Boots and then Loads the Setup Image..
    If the Setup image is not present - You just get a Command Prompt...
    In other words, when Microsoft Windows PE is loaded into the RAM disk, it looks for a setup.exe file in the media source.

    If it does not exist, Windows PE displays the Command Prompt window.

    Right?

    Thanks

    Balubeto, one easy way to dissect a Windows setup iso or esd and its constituent parts is with 7-Zip.

    Not only can it open Iso, Wim, Cab and other image and archive files nested within the parent archive , it can also expose files in some exe and msi compressed executable files. The properties exposed within the archive show the xml details that accompany the parent and child archives.

    Windows PE systems contain many familiar executable files in common with the Windows operating system files and share a common structure.

    Windows PE always loads into ram
    then since it is being used for windows setup - it loads the files needed for windows setup..
    Basically that boot.wim was customizied for windows setup

    If you where to load a standard PE - PE loads and run the DOS command shell

    If you load WinPESE - PE loads and starts the custom SE shell

    If you load a Macrium Boot disk - PE loads and then runs the Macrium program shell

    WinPE is very customizable - PE is the boot environment - the Shell PE runs after loading is what is customized

    Thus, the Microsoft Windows PE volume image of the boot.wim included in the Windows PE 10.x CD is different from the one included in the Windows 10.x DVD. Right?

    First of all, the boot.wim of the Windows PE 10.x CD contains the Microsoft Windows PE image volume and is configured to display the "Command Prompt window; while the boot.wim of the Windows 10.x DVD includes the Microsoft Windows PE and Microsoft Windows Setup volume images and the first is configured so that it loads the setup.exe file from the media source.

    Right?

    Thanks

    First of all, the boot.wim of the Windows PE 10.x CD contains the Microsoft Windows PE image volume and is configured to display the "Command Prompt window;
    First of all, the boot.wim of the Windows PE 10.x ADK contains the Microsoft Windows PE image volume and is configured to display the "Command Prompt window;

    the boot.wim of the WindowsRE is configured to display the advanced options menu, thus allowing you to select different options..

    So the question now is > What CD are you talking about ???

    As windows setup media will not fit on a CD...

    If what you are saying about how the CD is booting - then the CD contains the standard version of WinPE ( ADK Version)

    Windows Preinstallation Enviroment (WinPE) is how the PC boots... Period....

    What happens after that depends on what WinPE was told to run after booting the PC....

    I was talking about the standard CD of Windows PE 10.x, created by Windows ADK 10.x .

    Using only Windows ADK 10.x, someone is able to create a standard CD of Windows PE 10.x 32/64 bit with the system diagnostics and memory utilities (32/64) fully-working on all types of firmware of a computer? If so, what is the proper procedure to create this CD?

    Thanks

    Knowledge of the creation of that system diagnostics and memory utilities shell...
    as that is the customizations that YOU would have to add the standard PE image....

    I am done here...
    As your questions are not very pointed and seem to go round and round in great circles, just to get to the end, that leads no where....

    No need to keep quoting what was said in your response, as this to is not needed..
    We can follow along just fine without re-reading what was said in a post or two above...
