Windows 10: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
Understood. What I meant is when you built the WinPE, you also included the driver for your Network Adapter. The same as when I built mine, I had to add the driver for my Network card, quite new and Windows Installation did not even include it. Other than that, the rest should work for any PC.
My network drivers are by default are included in setup media - thus included in PE - same as other default drivers..
So PE is generic and nothing different required for my PC or any special considerations made for my use..
There is a known issue in the Acronis Forums in regards to the snapman.sys driver..
From the days when it was the only system image backup I ever used to today, its become way too bloated for my taste. The last version I had was the new 2016 release. Paid for THIS update too. It took over 200mb of my SSD and installed all kinds of stuff in my startup menu......I then found about about Macrium Reflect and it was free, doesn't take up any room on my HD, didn't install all kinds of crap in my startup files, and runs BETTER than Acronis. Was a no brainer for me. And like I have said before, I have been using nothing but Acronis since 2009.
Hey don't hurry on my account Kyhi I can wait sir, besides if the info is correct tomorrow should be a big day for Windows updates.....but....I'm not betting on it. Take your time, I love what you've done anyhow, GREAT Work, I just need to learn how to configure it better for my system. Which...I may never be able to do....but...fun trying.
Got it......will install very soon....
... Kyhi, will you add Windows/System32/spp/tokens/pkeyconfig/pkeyconfig.xrm-ms.
Showkey uses it for Win10 edition checking.
Turned on secure boot, and took me about 2 mins to boot into your Recovery PE Tool Works fine as far as I can see right now.
Of course if ya change something....lol.....unless you can show me how to add that command line in for showkey, I'll just have to d/l
your update. lol Mike...
You lost me Mike,,

What you want to do ??
Retrieve the Embedded BIOS Key ??
Or the Product Key used to activate the Host OS ??
SuperFly, may have the instructions on his https://www.tenforums.com/software-ap...7-showkey.html page
Retrieve Product key From Backup
since you are booted into PE > the Host OS Windows < is the backup key location you want to use..

Since PE is all in memory > any changes you make (add drivers) will be removed once you shut down PE...
You can however go into device manager in PE and select the Driver you need to update, then select Browse my computer and select the Host Windows drive letter..
Device manager will search the Host for updated drivers...
If PC requires a reboot to properly install driver, all changes to PE will be lost and you can not update that driver..
What I do is export the Host Drivers into a "DRIVERS" folder on the PE USB - then point device manager to it
extract getdrivers.zip and run cmd as admin on host system then copy "Drivers" folder to USB
You can export drivers from any number of host system(s) into the drivers folder on the USB
That way you compile a source for drivers depending on the system you are working on
If you copy the GetDrivers.cmd to the PE USB you can run the cmd from within PE and export the Off-line Windows System (Host) Drivers

Does anyone know how this software can be configured to boot from usb on uefi/gpt.
I formatted usb using rufus on the relevant mode then dragged over the contents of another usb where it does work on bios/mbr set up.
But when booting...
Have a new Double Power 8.1 Tablet that I've upgraded to Win 10. Now I've got it set up just right, I'm attempting to create a Rescue Disk. Purchased a 16gb micro-usb drive which is successfully recognized. Ran 'Create Rescue Disk' from Windows...
I have a new laptop with win 7 pro installed. Once Win 10 is installed in July how will I be able to create a system restore disk?
Just sharing this.
I made another boo-boo today and deleted 500GB worth of media files (just movies and music). Don't ask me how because that's something nobody wants to do. :)
I don't keep a backup of these files. For me these are disposable...
