Shutdown and restart



Build Notes

  • Windows Remote Desktop refuses to connect but using Terminals RDP works.
  • Shutdown and Restart commands on the Start 10 menu do not work. Use the Reboot and Shutdown commands on the the start menu (see above photo)
  • Comes with many more built-in Wi-Fi and lan drivers
  • Macrium Reflect will remove the Y drive and set it as next logical drive. Just use Remount CDdrive Y found in Windows Systems folder.
  • Only available on google drive presently.

        Download from Google Drive

It’s a very large download almost 4gb so be patient it can take 30-60 minutes (depending on your internet speed) to download.  After downloading, burn the bootable ISO file to  a USB of 8gb or larger, using rufus or a similar program to create your bootable USB.  Do not burn to DVD, since many apps need to write data to the application folder.

    Hi, how to burn in pen drive?


  6. Elman says:

    Thanks for Google Drive option!! Downloading for test…

  7. Laur Florin says:

    Thanks Gandalf, you’re the real MVP !!

  8. DavidinCT says:

    I see your comment, not to burn to DVD… You can if your doing mostly file management or basic tasks. This is godsend for a dead machine, OS wont boot and you need to recover files off the drive. Exactly what I needed today. Booted with the DVD(burned to DVD), connected a large USB drive, moved profiles/files off the drive…

    Easy ! Thanks again !

  9. DavidinCT says:

    FYI. Downloaded this today, saw that you released it today (3/13). Malwarebytes is out of date. I downloaded the defs for it but, it wants to install a newer version of the software.

    Just a FYI

    • gandalf50 says:

      Updating it will fail. This is the only version that works for me. As long as the definitions can be updated

      • Laur Florin says:

        Maybe you can integrate Emsisoft Emergency Kit into your next version of PE to bypass this issue. I tried to run it from the ramdisk and it worked.

    Hi, the shutdown/restart not in the start menu as the pictures show

  11. Dave46 says:

    Thanks for a great WINPE !

    If you type ” Shutdown” in the search box it will show up in the start menu.

    Haven’t tried to type “Reboot” yet.

    Nice having Malwarebytes included !!

    Gandalf, Thank you for this new 1709 x64 WinPE

    Few questions/problems

    1. What is the purpose of the Administrator/System Session desktop shortcuts?
    Running shortcuts results in Error codes 5023 and 7045

    2. DISM GUI (mount image) not working.

    3. How can I add custom folders and shortcuts to the Start10 menu in 1709.16299 ?
    Editing the Default User’s Start Menu (which I practiced in 1607.14393) seems not to work anymore for your 1709

    4. Could you please add .Net FrameWork to x64 1607.14393
    My attempts to add packages with dism failed with ”Error 87 Add-Package option is unknown”.

    Thank you

    Hi Gandalf, any chance of integrating DaRT in these builds? It’s basically what’s missing to make them a complete swiss army knife for troubleshooting. Thanks!
