    Having enabled CSM, my machine can boot from both the DVD and the SD card in BIOS mode.
    I am disappointed that it cannot display Chinese, in which many of my files are.

    You can Build WinPESE using the Chinese Version as the source.

    Build A Lightweight Windows10 PE Environment
    WIN10PE BUILDER SE
    Download

    Or you can add the Chinese language pack to the existing PE Media..

    Hi All,

    First thanks for this useful tool, we will keep this in our arsenal in IT Support.

    Anyways, we are having issues with Inaccessible Boot Devices due to a patch similar to this: Inaccessible Boot Device after todays Cumulative Windows 10 Update - Microsoft Community

    We are having boot loops of the repair. We have been utilizing this tool to rename the WindowsApps folder to WindowsApps.old and doing a system restore. We have a machine that does not have a restore point or likely got damaged due to our tweakings during our first pass.

    Things we have tried:
    -System Restore
    -Windows Start Up repair
    -CHKDSK
    -SFC
    -DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    -Toggling RAID vs AHCI in SATA Controller BIOS settings
    -Will not boot to any variant of Safe Mode
    -Renaming WindowsApps folder had no effect
    LogFiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt indicates "Details: Root Cause Found: A patch is preventing the system from starting."




    Does anyone have recommendations on what to do next?

    Is it legitimate to use the paid/pro versions of the software in your WinPESE?

    @Kyhi

    Jimmy, is there a way of injecting specific device drivers into the WinPE (x64)? Here is the issue. Check my specs and you will see I have an Alienware (Dell) Aurora R6, with a NVMe SSD. It is setup (not my choice) as RAID0, not AHCI. This cannot be changed without serious re-working of nearly everything, so it's not an option. It's not really RAID, the Intel drivers make it RAID capable. Very long story.

    In order for an install thumb drive to be able to see the NVMe SSD, I need to include a folder of the specific Intel drivers on the thumb, then during install load extra drivers. Then it will see the SSD. Works fine and all goes well. I can choose the drive and make a partition and install.

    When I boot your WinPE (x64), it boots and loads fine. But, none of the apps, nothing, can see the NMVe SSD. Sees all other drives (3). Same issue as the Windows Install scenario. I tried including the same folder of drivers I used with the install issue, but could not get the option you have to load them. Can't recall the exact name of it, but it's in the lower right corner of the taskbar. PMV something or other.

    Here is the folder of drivers I used successfully with the Windows install thumb, and tried to use with the WinPE.

    Drivers for NVMe SSD (install thumb).7z

    If there's a way, I'd really appreciate a shove in the right direction. Your tool is invaluable.

    Thanks, TC

    Mount the Boot.wim for WinPESE using DISM

    %~dp0 = drive letter\

    Code:
    md "%~dp0MountRE"
    dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"%~dp0Source\Boot.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"%~dp0MountRE" 
    dism /Image:"%~dp0MountRE" /Add-Driver /Driver:"%~dp0Drivers for NVMe SSD (install thumb)\Production\Windows10-x64" /Recurse /forceunsigned
    dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"%~dp0MountRE" /Commit
    You may want to copy Boot.wim to Internal Folder, mount it, add drivers, commit changes, then export to USB media

    Thanks for all this, but to be honest....I have no idea what to do with all of this. It is way over my head. I get lost just reading it! But, thanks for your time. Guess I'll just use the parts of the tool that work here.

    Copy the WinPESE Boot.wim into a "C:\Temp" Folder
    Copy the "Drivers for NVMe SSD (install thumb)" Folder into the "C:\Temp" Folder

    and run the following from command prompt (admin)

    Code:
    md "C:\Temp\MountRE"
    dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"C:\Temp\Boot.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"C:\Temp\MountRE" 
    dism /Image:"C:\Temp\MountRE" /Add-Driver /Driver:"C:\Temp\Drivers for NVMe SSD (install thumb)\Production\Windows10-x64" /Recurse /forceunsigned
    dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"C:\Temp\MountRE" /Commit
    Then you will copy the New Boot.wim from the C:\Temp Folder to the bootable media.
    The new Boot.wim will now contain the SSD drivers your system requires....

    I'll give it a try. Thanks, Jimmy.
