WinPE universal usb RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I am trying to prepare a universal USB drive with Windows Preinstallation Environment and Windows Boot Manager.

    The goal is to create a boot menu with options:

    1 - Boot from hard disk

    2 - Windows PE

    So far i have created that boot menu using bcdedit. Problem is that the first menu option works only on a machine where i created BCD store. I would like to modify that option so it would work on any Windows machine (assuming that Windows is already installed there). If i take that USB to another PC (where Windows is installed and \Windows\system32\winload.exe is present) the boot manager wont boot from hard disk. Windows PE boots fine.

    Other boot manager is not an option in this case.

    Is there anybody who can help me with this please ?

    Thank You in advance.
