    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk


    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable PE Rescue Disk
    Created a Custom Windows 10 Recovery Tools and Bootable Rescue Disk in ISO format
    Based on the Win10PESE project found on TheOven.org - Thanks to those that contributed..
    It allows you access to any non-working system and provides you a visual means to repair that system.
    You would have to download the ISO and then burn it to USB or CD to create a bootable WinPE disk.

    Cool little trick with Kyhi's recovery drive: take a standard Windows 10 install USB flash drive, copy the boot.wim file from \sources from Kyhi's recovery drive to the \sources on the Windows 10 install USB flash drive (overwrite the old file). Now your Windows 10 install USB flash drive will boot into Kyhi's recovery drive giving you all those utilities. If you want to install Windows 10, run setup.exe from the USB flash drive from file explorer. Bonus! Two drives in one!

    I created a 6 GB FAT32 partition at the end of my second HDD. I mounted a Windows 10 installation ISO file and then copied all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the 6 GB partition. Then I mounted Kyhi's Recovery Tools ISO file and replaced the Windows 10 boot.wim file in the \Sources folder in the 6 GB partition with the boot.wim file from Kyhi's recovery tools. Then I used EasyBCD to add that boot.wim file to my Windows boot menu. I have a Macrium Reflect image of my SSD saved on the NTFS partition of my second hard drive. I kept the regular Windows 10 450mb recovery partition on my SSD.

    I can:
    Enter the standard Windows 10 recovery environment from within Windows 10.
    Boot the computer from the normal SSD and pick Kyhi's Recovery Tools to boot into.
    Enter UEFI boot override and boot directly from the custom recovery partition on the second HDD into Kyhi's recovery tools.

    Once in Kyhi's recovery tools I can do a clean install of Windows 10 or I can run Macrium Reflect and restore the backup image to my SSD.
    How to add Recovery Media as Bootable Option

    1) Create a FAT32 > 2GB - 32GB < Partition at the end of your drive


    2) Copy the contents (Files) from the Rescue Media ISO to FAT32 partition


    3) Run proper Batch File to add the FAT32 Bootable Partition to your host Boot Menu Options


    4) PESE_BootMenu_Option.7z

    Batch File will ask for partition "Drive Letter"
    Batch File will ask you to type a "Name" for the Boot Menu Entry
    Batch File will ask you if you want to Display "Metro Boot Menu"


    Note: Batch just runs simple windows bcdedit commands to add the boot menu option....

    Image Health
    download

    The Preferred Method Of Use To Fix file Corruption Would Be To Select

    Option 1 - /ScanHealth > if shows as Repairable,
    then
    Option 2 - /RestoreHealth > if shows as Missing Source Files,
    then
    Option 3 - /RestoreHealth /source

    Note:
    Dism uses the component store as it's main source for Image Repair, so best to Select Option 2
    Before Selecting Option 3 and redirecting the repair source, to the Windows Setup Media..

    Option 4 > will analyze the component store, it will tell you if the store needs to be cleaned up

    Option 5 > will cleanup (Remove) superseded windows files over 45 days old in the component store

    Option 6 > will cleanup (Remove) ALL superseded windows files in the component store

    Option 7 > will run System File Checker - SFC /Scannow

    Option 8 > will run Revert Pending Dism Actions (UnLock, The Locked Disk Message)

    Option 9 > will run Disk Cleanup Manager in Extended Mode

    Option 10 > will run CheckDisk on a Volume, to scan for and fix disk errors..

    Option 11 > will run ShowKeyPlus to retrieve windows product key

    Option 12 > will export 3rd Party System Drivers into a "Drivers" folder

    Option 13 > will run a MS Tool that will Automatically move all the User files from the Windows.old folder to the corresponding locations within your new Windows installation.

    Option 14 > will run a MS Tool that will Generate a GenuineTicket.xml File

    Option 15
    > will run Never10 to Enable or Disable the Windows 10 GWX Upgrade

    Option 16 > will run a program to Download > MS Windows OS & MS Office < ISO's from TechBench

    Note: Option 0

    There are log files to help you and others troubleshoot DISM and SFC issues..
    Those *.Log files will be created on your Desktop as *.txt files..
    So you can post them easily in a forum..

    Being able to run ShowkeyPlus from this can be a life saver for some folks.
    I haven't explored it much yet but looks real good.

    Great tool, thanks for making it available.

    I also used Rufus to create a flash drive and it boots okay.

    Check the hash, make sure you have a good copy perhaps? This is what mine is:

    Showkey run OK but the problem is it does not retrieve correct info. However, other apps work perfectly
    Good Job Kyhi.

    What is it misreporting?... remember in a PE environment one has to redirect to the underlying installed Windows system for the correct info - otherwise it will report the PE info - the OEM info should be correct though.

    Then show me how is it done that I am not aware of.

    EDIT: OK. My bad, I saw it

    What's up with the hostility?

    @All
    'Retrieve key from backup' will give the underlying system info.

    It looks great. Any reason for using the x64 version over the x86 one? I don't know which ISO to download.
