Haha well thats the big issue, I don't know (yet) how to build my own PE since I don't know any scripting languages.
Thats why I made a new Topic to make a start by learning something new.
I would love to have my own PE with testing software that I can use for diagnoses.
How do I run my tests:
When a customer hands over a laptop/desktop with, let's say "a slow computer".
We create a document which has some basic details on it like; S/N, Brand, Type, Description of problem etc.
Eventually we have a diagnostic document that every engineer has to run.
Memtest 86: Pass 1: Pass 2:
HD Sentinel: ...%
HitmanPro: ... Viruses / ... Tracks
Currently installed AV: ...............
So let's say I am doing this reperation.
I take my 32GB USB drive which is installed with HBCD 15.2
Plug it into the onboard USB port and boot from the USB drive to start up Memtest 86, I let it run till it completed 2 passes and make a note on the document saying OK at Pass 1 and Pass 2.
Now I restart the computer and boot from USB again to run HDSentinel to check the status of the HDD, lets say the HDD is 100% which is good and I fill that in on the document.
I reboot the computer again and let it boot from the Hard Drive, now I go to a server folder which contains the Hitmanpro scan, run this as administrator and let it do a quickscan, lets say it has found 22 viruses and 876 tracks and I fill this in on the document.
This is a small diagnose but can say alot on what has to happen to fix the computer. Ofcourse I would also check the Event Viewer to see if there are any others issues like driver related issues etc.
Clean the Event Viewer, Reboot and check the Event Viewer again.
After this I write down some options like Advice: Windows Reinstall or Clean system (make it Virus free), Buy a better Anti Virus, Remove unwanted programs, upgrade the HDD to SSD etc.
Does this come closer to an answer that you were looking for?
