Windows 10: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
Plug something into the headphone jack? I do agree the startup sound is rather loud and my laptop only has electronic volume keys as well, but it's something I can definitely live with given all the benefits and hard work Kyhi has put into this.
Ah, that will do! I might even have an unused plug laying around here. It's the simple things.
I agree, this is really a nice piece of work and a valuable addition to my arsenal. Now to learn how to customize it.
I will tone down the volume in the next release... (Currently 67)
To customize - flip back a few pages in this thread and there is some info on how to..
Or you can edit (customize) windows\system32\autorun.cmd
by adding that to PE autorun.cmd > it will set pc volume in PE to 20
Echo Control the Volume
nircmd.exe setsysvolume 13107
Not sure if you are aware of this. Under Drivers->Audio, you can set the volume at startup to 20%. Current is 67% by default.
Jeez! Not quite sure how to take this level of support, I could learn to like it!
Now that I've looked at autorun.cmd, I see that I can just remove the startup sound completely. Now if I can just reassemble everything. I love a challenge.
Kyhi's instructions a few pages back are easy to follow.
Basically, you get things working in the x directory, then copy changes to the mounted version, update the boot.wim, and copy boot.wim to your flash drive.
Takes a couple of goes to learn sequence off by heart.
There are some limitations as the iso is based on Kyhi's original profile, and not all things are easily changed eg US keyboard, as the iso does not contain other keyboard options
Holy Sh*t! I'm on my way. Had to use Mount-Wim and Unmount-Wim instead of Mount-Image, and had a little difficulty getting the syntax right. Being an old hand at DOS and GW-Basic helped.
Now, how do I get the shortcuts on the desktop?
Edit: Never mind, Cereberus' post #318 got me there. Now the fun begins!

Yeah - it takes a bit of practice but once you get the hang of it you can add or modify quite a bit. I am no expert at WinPE by any means but this is easy for a moderately proficient pc user.
There are a couple of good websites dedicated to portable apps (just google) and you can set them up quite easily (not all work in a win pe environment so not 100% portable so test them in the X driver first).
I actually created shortcuts to a batch file to do the mounting and unmounting as well to save the hassle of typing in the commands all the time.
I now have a virtual mini version of windows that is totally portable.
Its a shame my tablet can only load 32bit OSs though as I would have to customise a separate version. Easy enough to do - just effort.
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...
