I’ve just started messing around creating my own Windows PE flash drive and/or boot DVD.
I’m using WinPE builder and have been able to make a USB drive that boots directly to the command prompt.
I’ve played around w/ portable applications and so far have been able to get a portable file explorer to work but not easy. I must change drives & folders to run the setup for the program. The install works from drive F that is installed on drive X, but what’s weird when I’m through w/ WinPE, what’s created on the X drive seems not to stay. When I’ve finished the install the portable file explorer will work and looks as it should, but I do believe there’s a way to make the file explorer startup automatically instead of me going through the manual setup each time…this is where I’m at now. If it’s possible, I want to start the file explorer up automatically when WinPE boots instead of the command prompt, and I believe this can work through the startnet.cmd but haven’t had any luck w/ that yet.
As you can tell, I’m a severe WinPE beginner.
