Build Notes

  • Shutdown and Restart commands on the Start 10 now work as normal.
  • Windows Remote Desktop refuses to connect but using Terminals RDP works.
  • Did not update Chrome and Opera as most recent versions not working in the PE
  • HD Clone working again
  • 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 4.5gb 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.

  1. Thanks for the new update!

    Looks great, just don’t seem to find Crystal Disk Info in the build. It’s not in HD tasks\Diagnostics somehow.

    • Ughh!! It was there. Somehow it was removed in my final build. Will make the fix and upload a corrected build soon.

  2. Couple of Q’s:
    1. Is it possible to use an RDP client (even MS’s) to access this Win10PE?

    2. *IF* it is then is there anything to do to make that accessible on a ‘headless’ PC – Wake on LAN etc. I would hope will work.

    3. Does Google Drive need me to log-in and copy the ISO to my own space before I download it? My first download failed at just over 2GB and the 2nd at 2.5GB

    • I use anydesk to remote into the PE from another device. I suppose it might be possible to have anydesk launch on startup with a preconfigured password protected account and then access it that way. Though i havent test this. You don’t have to sign into google drive to download.

  3. Hello, thanks for the effort you put into developing this tool.
    I suggest naming each version year-month-day to avoid confusion.
    Thank you very much again.

  4. Hi,

    thank for this good version
    unfortunately i cant change keyboard language that is normal ?

  5. I have a question, is there a way to fit this to 4GB USB? Which of the programs can I delete from the ISO file that would make it less than 4GB?
