Tutorial for manually creating barebones win8pe with explorer?
Posted 05 December 2012 - 01:16 PM
I understand some people on this forum have it working, but I don't see any explanation on how it is done. Is anybody who has it working manually willing to provide instructions (or have a link to a place that has instructions)?

The first option, is of course, not really feasible. The VHD option has a ton of drawbacks (does not load into RAM, much larger filesize, requires reinstallation of drivers and multiple reboots every computer it gets moved to, can't be ran from read-only media). To give you an idea, I have created a hiren-like bootdisc with most of my bootable environments and tools running from it (like a lot of us do I think). It's got a fully functional win7PE environment that runs from it, but that environment does not have some things that I'd like in a windows PE environment (native USB 3.0 support, for example).
The second option looks like an ongoing thing, but that is also them trying to get the win8 shell running. A more acceptable solution might be using the win7 explorer shell replacement (http://www.msfn.org/...-for-windows-8/) and putting in the appropriate explorer.exe into the windows folder. I'll give that a shot tomorrow and see how it goes.

Sounds logical, doesn't it?
