It’s a large download of over 2gb, so be patient it can take 20-40 minutes (depending on your internet speed) to download.  After downloading burn the bootable ISO file to  USB using rufus or similar program to create your bootable USB. A BIG THANKS to everyone over at theOven.org
***For all those having issues with the 2gb iso file download I have heard there are timeout issues downloading 2gb or larger files. I have rared the iso and put in a folder inside the same folder. It’s called Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.rar and is inside the folder called “download from here if having problems with iso file” Try downloading that one. Be patient it sometimes takes 2-4 minutes for the download to start.

    Hello gandalf50,

    can’t download your windows 7 pe.iso because login to onedrive is required.
    Can you please check this, thanks in advance

    spengler

    • gandalf50 says:

      I will check, but you can always sign up for a Onedrive account. They’re Free.

    Can’t download your iso,even after logging (shareing is view only),try mega.co.nz, kingfiles.net etc. for share

    • gandalf50 says:

      For all those having issues with the 2gb iso file download I have heard there are timeout issues downloading 2gb or larger files. I have rared the iso and split it into two parts. It’s in the folder inside the same folder. The two files are called Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.part1 and Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.part2 and are inside the folder called “download from here if having problems with iso file” Try downloading those.

  4. PE-Tester says:

    Hi there, just wanted to send an update that I’ve been having difficulty downloading the ISO and RAR files. I’ve tried it via different browsers, computers and locations. The same holds true for the older WinPE iso files released last year.

    • gandalf50 says:

      I split the rar files into two smaller pieces. Let me know if that works. It’s in the download from here if having problems with iso file folder

  5. PE-Tester says:

    Hi Gandalf50,

    Happy to report that the new split of the files worked. It downloaded the file as one big zip file, labeled: One-drive.zip, which in turned, contained the two rar files (exe + rar), which extracted, had the ISO file.

    On a slightly related item, prior to seeing your update with the new files, I was able to download the original 2.1GB ISO file from the root folder. Not sure if it was the time of day, something to do with One Drive or with you splitting it up.

    In either case, thanks much for your hard work in making these available.

    Regards

  6. D-tox says:

    Not sure if this is a bug with your PE environment or with the multiloader I’m using. I used yumi under unlisted ISO in GRUB to try to launch your x86 of Windows 7 and it works, however some of the programs don’t respond, they give an error such as whateverprogram.lnk can’t be referenced on another disk. I did download your full ISO from OneDrive, or is this more likely an issue with yumi? If so what did you use for the USB bootable

  7. Mick says:

    The two-part file seems to be corrupted. WinRAR says it’s fine, but the ISO image that I extract won’t burn to DVD (I get a “bad blocks” error), and although it will install to a USB stick, it won’t boot (says sacdrv.sys is missing or corrupt). Is there any way I could get you or someone to upload the full iso image to something other thane Microsoft’s drive thing? Because they want me to sign up but in order to do so they want me to divulge waaaay more info than I’m comfortable with. What’s wrong with mega or something?

  8. Digi says:

    I had the same issue as D-tox (Only I use Xboot). I read the error message that comes up on the desktop after this partially failed boot, tried all the suggestions, and none of them worked entirely. The way you created this PE, by having the system load the media as a virtual disk(Y) makes it very hard to use loading as an ISO from a USB stick. My solution was to place an ISO I created in the root of the USB stick named Win7PESE_x86.ISO along with the marker file CdUsb.Y I essentially just pulled the “program files” folder out of the original ISO and Isocreater to turn them back into a non-bootable ISO that the bootable ISO could find and mount. Whats funny is that the dual boot 8.1 PE ISO doesn’t have this issue.

  9. Digi says:

    Would you be willing to create a version with sound included? I managed to add my own network drivers and audio drivers to the wim file you included, but I can’t wrap my brain around how to add audio…

    • gandalf50 says:

      Are you sure there is not audio detected? There are no system sounds loaded so if you are just clicking the speaker icon, you’re not going to hear a ding. Is there an X on the speaker icon in the tray. Who makes you audio driver?

      • Digi says:

        I will try again on another system. I loaded the drivers for my system, as well as a massive audio driver pack. I noticed that the sound mixer app is missing, so maybe its just muted? I’ll get back after testing.

        • Digi says:

          Tried on another system and while the audio driver is present, the following error occurs when trying to install it: “The install class is not present or invalid”. Also all of the sound device software is missing.

          • Digi says:

            Looks like mmci.dll is also missing, which controls audio. I don’t know a lot about building PE yet, but in trying to figure this out, I read that dx11 needs to be included as well as some audio.script. If you get around to rebuilding this I will happy to test it, especially if you can pull off an x86/x64 version!Thanks for all the work you have done, that Windows 8.1 build is AWESOME!

    • JC says:

      Do you have some instructions on how you injected the network drivers into the wim file? I can’t seem to find info on how to do this anywhere.

  10. Digi says:

    I am getting the hang of using Winbuilder to make my own PE iso’s now. I managed to make a multi-x86/x64 iso with working sound and a bunch of random driver packs. ISO weighs in at 2.7gigs and works great in a virtual machine… I’m having trouble loading it in syslinux/grub though :/ I think it needs an additional string in there that I can’t figure out :(

  11. NoPeExp says:

    I am new to PE so excuse my ignorance. I really like your product and would like to customize
    a Jump Drive for each of my systems in case of emergency. The only problem is it never saves
    my drivers or whatever changes I make. Is there an easy way to do this. I Understand that most
    people probably don’t want the options to save, but the Jump Drives are so cheap, I would
    rather have a custom way to go in if something goes wrong. Great Job BTW …

    • gandalf50 says:

      You could inject your drivers into the offline wim file and then save the changes. Or a simpler method is to just open device manager and for each problem device update the driver by pointing to your C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository directory. It will pick up the drivers of the system you are booted into.

  12. NoPeExp says:

    Yes, I have been doing the C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository method, but I am trying to create these Jump Drive’s assuming the C: drive is not available, therefore I need to save a copy on each one and use it just for that system. I have no experience with a Wim file. Can you point me in the right direction, I have no problem trying to learn. Thanks for your help and all your hard work …

    The two .rar files are ok. The created bootable usb drive it’s ok.
    How to add the ghost32 or ghost64 v12, in usb?

    • gandalf50 says:

      Just create a folder in the portable apps folder on the usb and place them in it. When you restart the portable apps menu it will pick up the new apps

    Soy profesor de la universidad en Panama y enseño instalacion de sistemas operativos me gustaria hacer windows pe como los hace ud para enseñarles mis estudiante , que me recomienda

  16. Euclid says:

    Gracias por la respuesta
    Me puede recomendar – Guias de como hacerlo aunque esten en ingles ya que leo ingles tecnico – Ya fui a la pagina que me recomendo y creo que leyendo lo que dicen ahi me ayudara bastante – Espero que pronto me pueda comunicar con UD. Gracias nuevamente por la futura ayuda

  17. Euclid says:

    Aquí en Panamá las PC que compramos no vienen con Windows 7, 8 o 8.1 ya vienen pre-instalados por eso nosotros no tenemos el CD de Windows que necesitaríamos para hacer el WinBuilder así que solo podemos hacerlo si bajamos imágenes ISO de prueba de la Internet. Con el windows 8.1 ya hemos construido un windows PE básico sin agregarle nada a lo que viene por defecto pero el 8 si nos da problema porque siempre envía este mensaje aun que estemos conectados a internet.

    WIMGAPI.DLL was not found y no podemos continuar que me recomienda – si pudiéramos hacerlo sin estar conectado a Internet todavía mejor. Aquí en Panamá el Internet en la Universidad es muy lento y no da para que trabajen mas de 40 estudiantes.

    Posdata: Se le agradece de antemano todo sus consejos – gracias

    Olá gandalf50,

    Como posso adicionar o ImageX para capturar e aplicar imagens e diskpart.

    Obrigado

    Hello gandalf50,

    How can I add the ImageX for capturing and applying images and diskpart.

    Thanks

  19. cryo83 says:

    I have a question since may could use thin to play some games that incompactible with win 10. Could I update the directX if I burn the iso into usb?

  20. DaveW says:

    This is great Thanks. I have a couple of questions:
    How can I get an application to launch at startup as I have tried with no success.
    How can i disable the “Press any key to boot from usb” prompt
    Thanks.

  21. JC says:

    For those who are wondering how to inject your own drivers I can report that after much research I worked out how to do it.

    1. Create a working directory (in my case I created C:\Mount)

    2. Download all the drivers you wish to add into the image, put them in a folder (in my example I put them at C:\Mount\Drivers).

    3. Create a mount folder (I used C:\Mount\BootWIM) then mount the boot.wim image with DISM:
    DISM /Mount-Wim /WimFile:\boot.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\Mount\BootWIM

    4. Add all the drivers in your driver folder (once again mine was C:\Mount\Drivers):
    DISM /Image:C:\Mount\BootWIM /Add-Driver /Driver:C:\Mount\Drivers /recurse

    5. Save the changes and un-mount the WIM
    DISM /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\Mount\BootWIM /Commit

    Hope this helps someone out there!

  22. Chris Quirke says:

    This is more useful than you’d think, for working on GPT drives! Windows 7 was smart enough to “see” GPT without being dumb enough to find and fiddle with Windows installations there, as happens with Win8+

    So if you have a hard drive from a recent laptop that may have gone bad and want to copy off files, do data recovery, etc. then this is what you need (a dual x86/64-boot would be even better). Typically, the Win8+ PEs will bog down and not complete booting, in this context.

  23. La says:

    is the utilities in this updated with newest version? or i should download the Win10PE version for the newest utilities?

  24. Dost says:

    Thanks allot my friend from your share it’s so much useful.

  25. Mrar says:

    It looks like the apps does not work.. Anybody know why i have some problems with this?
    Tried both usb 3.0 and 2.0 and no difference. Im combining this iso with easyboot system.. And i have a win8.1 PE 64bit from gandalf where the apps work fine on the same usb..

    Can somebody help me with this? :)

  26. Tux ICT says:

    Downloaded the Win7PE disk. According to your site it also contains TeamViewer. Maybe I’m overlooking it, but so far I could not find it.

    1 tip : make the next WinPE iso’s without games and that kind of stuff and make it a pure rescue disk ;)

  27. Euclid says:

    Buenas tardes. Anteriormente le mande un mensaje para que me ayudara y lo hizo.
    Ya tengo el conocimiento para crear sistemas operativos portables en pendrive.

    Gracias apreciado Gandalf`s.

    Aun dictamos lenguaje C basico con BorlandC o TurboC de la version 2.0 para programar en bajo nivel.

    Las imagenes que genero aqui no permiten que corran programas de 16 bits aunque tengan arquitectura de 32 bits los sistemas operativos.

    El concepto de compatibilidad que se permite en los sistemas completos no lo he podido implementar aqui.

    Me podrias dar unas ideas de como poder hacerlo.

  29. martin says:

    hello dear gandalf – well i wonder if i can create a LIVE CD (or dvd) instead of a USB. Is this possible.

    I run linux and i can create a ISO DVD – with ease. I use k3b to do this.

    i am not familiar with creating usb-sticks…

    can you help me here.

    löve to hear from you regards martin

    • gandalf50 says:

      Many of the apps on this version will will not work correctly if written on a Read only DVD since they write certain files when run. Just get a USB large enough to accommodate this build 4gb stick would be good and use Rufus to burn. Just browse for the location where you save the iso and leave the rest of the defaults as is.

  30. nataraj says:

    Wonderful x86 version. Now i have the two best WinPEs in the world ! Thank you again for your work.

    I just wanted to point out that this version is perfect for older machines. It loads successfully on a machine that has only 1GB of RAM compared to the x64 version which doesn’t.

    That being said, do you know what would be the strict minimum for this x86 version? I was a bit surprised to see it run on 1gb :) works decent too!

  31. rvmn says:

    thanks! works great!

    Hello, my not appear portable applications

  33. Mr Whoopee says:

    I just want to express my appreciation for your work and to add some comments. I had a terrible time with the download, even with a download manager and the 2-piece .rar download. It took over 24 hours of trying and retrying before success.

    I am using this in a hybrid multiboot of the Hirens BCD Rebuild along with XP and Win 10 (not sure why, I just like it.) I am booting from the ISO, so I have moved the PortableApps out of the ISO to allow access from all three OS. This also allows the use of the PortableApps from the host system without booting one of the PEs. This is very valuable for malware/anti-virus scans because it seems they cannot scan an offline registry. I am also using a merged version of the HBCDmenu, which is also removed from the ISO for the same reasons. It is also much easier to edit and update the portable programs.

    Thanks again for all your work.

  34. Rob Crombie says:

    Thanks, these are terrific.
    I am running the W7 one from USB, and have allowed ‘Portable Apps’ to update.
    What would be nice/handy, would be the ability to create a bootable DVD from the updated USB ‘session’
    That way the DVD could be up to date, if I needed to use that DVD (instead of USB) on another PC. Say on a PC that is difficult to boot from USB.
    Is that possible ?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    • gandalf50 says:

      Seems like alot of work for a few updates and a fussy system but you could take the original iso and use ultraiso or similar app to overwrite any updated apps and then save the iso with a new name and burn it to dvd instead.

  37. Steve Mills says:

    I can’t believe I can’t figure this out, but no matter what I do, I get the WinPESE error and, of course, there is no Drive Y and nothing works. I’ve tried Rufus, and the MS tool. The log shows a series of timeouts which exceed 30 seconds. All of the other disks (8.1, 10) work fine, but 7 is resisting mightily.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks!

  38. Stanley Krute says:

    Thanks for all of your amazing work.

    All of the downloads stored on OneDrive are not functioning today, and come up with message that you’ve exceeded your usage quota.

    The MEGA download of this item IS working.

  39. Rob Crombie says:

    ===> One Drive is now working <===
    Tried the One Drive link 3 hours ago, and it was not working
    So signed up for the free MEGA account, and tried that download via FF extension.
    It was soooo slow, and would have taken well more than 8 hours.
    Gave up and tried the One Drive download WHICH IS NOW WORKING
    Took about 1 hour, so no complaints there.

    Rob
    PS Is there a setting in MEGA to turn off encryption ?
    (as that surely would contribute to the slowness)

  40. MR_Q says:

    Hi
    Is any chance do make PE with choice OPTION ON BOOT of page file size and destination like 1Gb 2 GB ect. where you have a HDD free space fo it.

    The reason why I do ask is when I add drivers pack and I have only 2GB RAM Memory is not enough RAM Memory for unpack wim file is to big in modify version by me.
    Any chance to help me with that issue?? Please

  41. AnthonyK says:

    I just wanted to add my $0.02 – the md5sum of file downloaded via Mega is different from the one on OneDrive. The OneDrive ISO has the md5sum stated in the CheckSum.md5! Don’t use Mega as there’s probability it has been tampered with.

    Cheers,
    ak.

  42. AnthonyK says:

    For completeness sake, the Mega ISO has the following checksum:

    cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a *Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.iso

    ak.

    • gandalf50 says:

      I will check it out. thx

      • hki says:

        Hi,

        Thank you for sharing the ISO.

        I have got the same checksum above:
        cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a *Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.iso

        Do you have the updated checksums, md5sum, sha256sum ?

        Thanks.

        • gandalf50 says:

          03BEC34930EF6FFD2F4C9DE4FC685F68 is the right checksum for Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.iso

          • hki says:

            Hi Gandalf50,

            Thank for checking.

            I have re-downloaded the iso from MEGA, the md5 checksum is the same wrong checksum cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a.
            The file cannot be found in OneDrive.

            Please can you send me a direct download link, thanks.

  44. Rincewind says:

    Read the tale of long Mega download so went for OneDrive. That didn’t work. Some message about “The item might not exist or is no longer available” “Contact the owner”
    Glad I dont use ONeDrive – sounds pretty flaky

    Tried Mega but it wanted to download a Firefox extension and I dont really trust those.

    So tried again in Chrome. The download fired up fine and took just over an hour. No problem at all

    Enormous thanks for your work (assuming it fires up OK :-)! )

  45. Rincewind says:

    Well nearly OK!!
    Download fine and create USB was fine

    Atempted to boot a Toshiba Tecra M10. The boot process was fine but . . . .
    after a while (see below) the screen goes blank and the HDD light flashes regularly about 1/sec
    “After a while” means if you touch nothing but just let the boot process complete then the screen dies about 2 minutes after the Network screen has appeared.
    During this time the hard disk light flashes every second

    Seems to be about the same length of time if you do stuff on the system. So, around 2 minutes after the boot completes the screen goes black.

    I tried the same pen drive on an old HP G56 and it worked fine (or was still working fine after 30 minutes)

    How do I troubleshoot/fix the Toshiba problem?
    TFAI

  46. Rincewind says:

    Thanks – I’ll have a go. IIRC there are some notes on injecting drivers somewhere on this site.

    On a different front, how do I add portable apps that are not on portable apps.com (e.g xplorer2)? Just install USB?

  47. Fan says:

    Dear Gandalf, it’s a very great stuff you worked out. Sorry, my english is not the best. Could you give me please a direct link for your Win 7 PE?
    Thank you very much …

  48. Funny says:

    Wooow my friend, you are very fast (-:

  49. Rick says:

    hey Gandalf. you certainly are a smart guy. and obviously a hard worker. could you send me a link, as well, to download the windows 7 pe x86 version? thanks!

  50. Rick says:

    Thanks for the speedy link, Gandalf :)

  51. Rob Crombie says:

    Thanks for all your efforts.
    The One Drive button is not finding a file
    I bit the bullet and created a Mega account, and allowed their extension.
    It appears to be downloading/uploading (?) to somewhere (?)
    It is 10% complete and I am pretty sure that an error msg popped up. I dismissed it and the download/upload proceeded (OOPs it appears to be stuck at 10% with the little progress icon still spinning)

    The mention of a rar file in a folder somewhere – is that referring to the One Drive download (where I cannot do anything, and cannot see folders to browse)

    Thanks,
    Rob

  52. Rob Crombie says:

    The free account at Mega keeps floundering.
    I was even tempted to purchase the Lite (5 Euro) Plan, to see if that helps the atrocious Mega download speed, but they don’t take PayPal.

    Is it possible to get a direct download link ?

    Thanks,
    Rob

  53. Rob Crombie says:

    Success
    Advice for future downloaders –
    Use Opera and the Mega download link
    It was pretty quick too.

    I’m a volunteer with a small NGO in E Europe. Three of four computers have issues, only made much worse by the guy who was supposed to be helping us sort them out. I have far less experience but at least have so far made a little FORWARD progress during my “spare” time in the past month!
    Your 32-bit Win7 PE iso seems to be exactly what I have been searching for, but One Drive tells me it’s been removed or I am unauthorized to access it.
    Would you be kind enough to send a link where I can download this very promising set of tools?
    Thank you in advance!

    One more thing: I intended to recommend this great little program, but forgot to include it with my inquiry. It would make a fabulous addition to your collection. Available in paid editions or free Lite, including portable options. Sadly, not for Linux….

    Firstly, thank you very much Gandalf50 for making this wonderful handy ISO available to download.

    I think I may be having trouble with the ISO download from Mega, which on my first attempt did not match your given checksum posted there. Suspecting a bad download, my subsequent repeated attempts to download resulted in identical files (and checksums) to the first one, all of which did not match your given checksum at Mega. As I have now noticed the checksum was posted at Mega the day prior to the ISO, could you confirm that the checksum is in fact still correct for the ISO currently available to download?

    Also, I was wondering if you were involved with an older similar PE ISO I am looking for called HawkPE-43?

      the correct checksum is 03BEC34930EF6FFD2F4C9DE4FC685F68
      i will ad you to onedrive share. but will need a proper email.
      no involvement with hawkpe

    Uh Oh! Seems I did something wrong:

    First, I probably should have mentioned in the initial post that I was creating my multi-boot USB via YUMI. Already loaded on that drive were Linux mint Cinnamon Sarah, both 32 and 64 bit versions.

    At about 99% complete on the progress bar, this came up:

    YUMI 2.0.0.9 Setup
    YUMI couldn’t find a configuration file.
    “Gandalf’s Win7x86PE.iso” not supported, please report the exact steps taken to arrive at this message!”

    1) Extracted the gandalf zip file onto my HDD, which created an iso.
    2) Ran YUMI again to carefully add gandalfs via the GUI to the Linux mint distros already on the USB.
    4) All was cooking along great until the error message came up. (~99%)

    Now what?

    FWIW, I had no trouble with the drive while installing the Linux versions, but had not yet tested it. That was my plan for immediately after the gandalf PE….

    Is anyone able to help me with this issue?

    cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a is the checksum from my Mega download – a lot of people are getting this checksum(?)

    Please add the full version of OpenOffice to Windows 7 PE .iso download.

    OpenOffice

    Link: https://www.openoffice.org/download/index.html

    Thank you.

    • gandalf50 says:

      Just use the portable apps downloader and install it on the usb.

      • Cesare says:

        I understand what you are talking about but I cannot get the script for OpenOffice to work neither for DVD or USB.

        I need your help for you to kindly update the DVD .iso file by adding OpenOffice to the DVD .iso file.

        Please can you, yourself add the full version of OpenOffice to the DVD .iso file and then re-upload the updated .iso file.

        Thank you.

  64. Cesare says:

    I want to be able to use OpenOffice straight away by booting the DVD .iso version.

    Hi Gandalf,

    I apologize to chasing you again on this topic but it looks like the MD5 checksum is different from the one you provided.
    The file is: “Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.iso”
    The file is not available on onedrive
    I downloaded the file from MEGA; I found another copy on BR2SHARE and still the MD5 on both files is cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a as reported from other users.

    File: Gandalf’sWin7x86PE.iso
    CRC-32: ce2173c2
    MD4: c064805723f4f31a0330016f94dca519
    MD5: cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a
    SHA-1: d68baead9697955245ec3e1120229a8d33288d03
    SHA-256: 71B9C2B98F9426CF6B79F370588AF8A7BCD85CBE77B2F505C4D22D56F10E1F81

    Could you please verify again and/or share with me the file with the correct MD5 Checksum?

    Thanks in advance.

  66. Help says:

    Is there another place where I can download the file other then MEGA?

  67. Cesare says:

    Please folks can you kindly ask Gandalf to add the complete full version of OpenOffice to the DVD .iso file.

    That is all that I am asking for!

    This file is over 2GB is size.

    Thank you.

  68. Cesare says:

    Please can you find Gandalf’s email address so that I can contact him.

  69. Aakash Roushann says:

    Hi Gandalf,

    I downloaded your great Win7PE iso from Mega.

    It has a md5sum of: cbd9e3c039f0a91f3c58faa80d83820a
    You say it should have: 03BEC34930EF6FFD2F4C9DE4FC685F68

    Any idea where I could download the correct one? Do you have an alternative download link with the correct file?

    Thanks a lot
    Manfred

    The Windows 7 PE iso file by Gandalf must be updated with a universal graphics driver so that it can automatically use the correct resolution on any computer.
