In my situation , I've to disable the Win8PE_SE_2013-10-03 desktop. I mean Win8PE_SE_2013-10-03 boot and only goes to X:\ command prompt.

 

My purpose is to make a Win8PE from my existing UEFI/GPT harddisk, whcih C: is my Windows 8 64-bit and E: is Win8PE_SE. I want to use Win8PE to make my backup and recovery of Windows image by ghost32. As also I've written a tiny program by VB6 , so I need to use Win8PE_SE to be my backup and recovery background. Win8PE x64 from Microsoft can't run 32-bit program , because ADK don't have WoW64 script. But Win8PE_SE_2013-10-03 has this script , so it can run my program and the other 32bit programs. It's very nice.

 

But as for the purpose of backup and recovery , it doesn't need to have the Win8PE desktop and explorer in it. What I need is X:\ command prompt only (with black background).

 

I've once succeeded to do this by check and uncheck some choice in Win8PE_SE_2013-10-03 ... Shell ...0 Shell Loader. There're 3 options : Pecmd , PeShell and Custom Pecmd. But I've forgotten how to do it again. Now I've try and try over and over. Still fail to make Win8PE_SE_2013-10-03 to boot to X:\ only.

 

Any help. Thanks

Hi

 

Why not simply build a 32 bit WinPE 4.0 using the ADK ?. It will be light weight, easy to build and perfectly matches your requirements.

 

There is also freeware alternatives available which supports EFI/GPT partitions. Please give a try to "Macrium reflect free" which is free for personal use.

It supports GPT , can create both Linux and WinPE based recovery media , bootable media is lightweight and much faster than Ghost32 in backup and restore.
