    Yea its hilarious how many people critique the very few that are willing to share their builds... Where did ChrisR go? Are you really not at TheOven anymore? Much respect to you! I'm working on some stuff myself glad to see your still on the scene.

    Although, I can not duplicate.
    PENetwork is setup to Autostart.
    Is there any way for my to adjust the iso file to prevent the PENetwork from auto starting? I presume it is needed for there to be internet access in the WinPE environment. Which I don't believe is necessary to run a dism cmd on an offline drive.

    Fortunately, I have access to more than one machine so will be testing ur iso on multiple PCs later today to see if this is an isolated incident specific to this HP laptop...

    On a working machine you would need to mount the ISO, then once that was mounted navigate to the WIM and mount that as well, then PENetwork is usually run via RunOnce in the Registry, so you would probably have to remote edit the NTUSER.dat in the default user profile, or HKLM Hive in the system32 folder within the WIM - Depends how he built it but that's usually the standard..

    Also alternatively to DISM you can run SFC /scannow /offbootdir=C:\ /offwindir=C:\windows

    Thnx for the input. Sounds doable although I haven't tried editting a registry offline before but there is a first time for everything...lol.
    @Kyhi do you have any advice on how to use @uturn0427 method to prevent the PENetwork.exe from launching @ start-up? Or some other way to get this PC to boot into ur WinPESE iso successfully?

    Thnx

    On the machine your using to do the work open regedit.exe as admin. Then click on the HKeyLocalMachine(HKLM) key in the main tree. Only when this key is selected will you have the option to "Load Hive" under the "File" option in the menubar of regedit. Then you just point to the Hive you want to load, it will ask you to type a temp name for the hive, lets say "tmpSoftware" for the "Software" hive in windows\system32\config folder inside the wim. When done editing the remote hive click the main branch of the new tmpSOFTWARE key then go back to "file" on the menubar and click "Unload Hive"

    *Excuse the ugly instructions in a rush but still wanted to help lol

    P.S. KYHI is the man! He has carried parts of the PESE project on his shoulders and is one of better contributing memebers to the project IMHO

    PE all loads in Ram
    So unless you can capture (successfully) a new boot.wim
    then I have no advise to give other then creating your own PE.
    @Kyhi I tried using an older iso and was able to get it to boot with no issues on the same PC.

    So now I am attempting to run the ImageHealth.cmd following your instructions --> extracting the zip to the root of the C: drive and running as admin (I didn't see an option to select unblock in properties) and I get the following error when I run any of the options...

    DISM does not support servicing Windows PE with the /Online option

    any help would be appreciated... Thnx

    Oh I see... For some reason I thought you created/intended it to be run from within ur WinPESE environment to troubleshoot an offline drive.

    So can it be run successfully in Safe Mode on the host PC? And out of curiosity, is there a way (using cm prompt) to run DISM on an offline drive?

    Thnx
