    @Kyhi

    I recently used your PESE_BootMenu_Option.7z on page 1 of this thread to add a self-created WinPE bootable partition at the end of my disk to the boot menu (it didn't' contain your recovery tools) and it worked perfectly.

    If you don't mind, could you post the "manual" way of using bcdedit to add a bootable partition to the boot menu in Windows 10? Microsoft's documentations on the topic aren't that helpful.

    The commands are contained in the batch scripts. It is fairly complicated to do without a script as quite a few steps. Even if you look online, most guides use a form of script.

    Really, you need to study the scripts and understand what they are doing - here are some examples.

    The Script may be titled as PESE but the script allows you to choose the Drive Letter of the partition and allows you to create a Custom Name for the Boot Title..

    So it does all that you would want it to do, If booting from ramdisk - Boot.wim
    As you said it works perfectly..

    Hey @Kyhi, recently tried to use your WinPE environment but it keeps setting the resolution to 800x600 or smth similar.

    Is it possible to inject the intel integrated graphics drivers and / or the amd graphics drivers into the environment? and would i need to boot using UEFI or UEFI-CSM/BIOS?

    Cheers

    Try using pecmd to change the resolution. ( if pecmd is not showing in systray, hit ctrl+alt+M ) Rt click pecmd in the system tray and select a resoultion. You will probably have to refresh explorer afterwards. If KYHI hasn't put somethiing in to refresh explorer, you can run this in the run box or cmd prompt:

    pecmd kill explorer.exe

    Or, you can preset it in pecmd.ini by adding a line such as:
    DISP W1024 H768 B32 F60

    Otherwise:
    You might be able to use the intel drivers, but probably need to switch to admin to get it to work. That is how I got it working in win 7 pe. I haven't bothered fiddling with it in win 10 pe, but it may be you need to do that in 10 pe as well.

    Using PECMD to change resolution doesn't work.

    What steps did you use to get the Intel drivers working? Also is it the fact that I'm booting in UEFI mode preventing the resolution from being changed?

    Yes, it could be - but I have no idea why.

    In 7 pe, vga.sys is normally used. It is possible to include the inbox intel drivers . I am too lazy to check now how I did that, but it involved logging in as admin, then relaunching explorer as system. I used some stuff from sysintenals. I don't know if it can be done in win10 as I haven't tried.

    I used sysinternals psesec.exe in 7pe to relaunch explorer as system. That is not necessary for screen res in 7pe, but it is a way to get aero.

    Oh, I got it working natively.

    Turns out Secure Boot forces you to go into 680x800 resolution. Turning it off let's you go into native resolution which for me was 1920x1080

    I guess there should be a note in the OP about that

    I suspected it might be a bios setting of some kind - but don't know why.
