The CD Forum > The CD Forum > Bootable CDs
Ben_Mott
Hello,

to make a bootable windows 7( vista+SP1+SP2)
go to systemand security >Back up and restore
in back up and restore dialog box from the left side choose:
create a system recovery disc
follow the on screen instructions
put an empty CD-R in the drive showing .
in 5 minutes you got a PE2 disc which also has system restore facility

although it might not work booting off a system with daul boot with XP
as each time you boot XP wipes the restore of windows 7(VISTA+SP1+SP2)

hello again,

if you still got windows 7 ultimate Beta on your system
before you delete it make yourself a windows 7 recovery CD

to make a bootable windows 7
go to systemand security >Back up and restore
in back up and restore dialog box from the left side choose:
create a system recovery disc
follow the on screen instructions
put an empty CD-R in the drive showing .
in 5 minutes you got a PE2 disc which also has system restore facility

once you got the Cd notice that you got a source directory and you got

a boot directory.
the wim file in source directory is called boot.wim
copy that to c:\pe\winpe_x86\ISO\source directory
and copy the content of the boot directory to
C:\pe\winpe_X86\ISO\boot directory

reference below link
(you first need to cut and past the original content of that directory

esle where so it looks empty)

then open a command line and type
CD \
CD PE
you should have all Batch files(.BAT)

use 2mount.bat
to mount the image boot.wim
once it is mounted go to
c:\pe\winpe_x86\mount
there you will see windows7
open that then open system32 folder
put A43.exe file manager in there and also put ghost32.exe in there.
then use
5unmount
then you can put any tool you like in ISO folder which will show on the

root of the CD
then use
6makeiso.bat
to make a new ISO
then use IMGburn
to burn the ISO to a CD-R
boot with that Cd
on command line type A43
to see your files
or type ghost32 to open up ghost in GUI mode.
this windows 7 CD has no network ability to get network ability
type
STARTNET
on the command line
this will run the winpeini
and get wired networking started.
also microsoft menu starts in a file called winpeshl.ini
in which one line refers to it
X:\sources\recovery\recenv.exe
this CD is also got a driver store folder which is only 22MB large

hello,
I noticed that open office portables calc and so on all work (without plugin)from
windows 7 PE made by going to system and security > recovery >and on left choosing to make a recovery CD
or simply type on the command line interface
recdisc.exe
and enter and follow instruction.
note?????? you can do this from installation DVD ie make a recovery CD bu typing above
(I tied that it made me a CD but it was not bootable so stick to
doing it through windows 7 \ultimate Beta if you still have it.)

and also Calm anti virus also works without any plug in

I used imagex /mountRW
to mount boot.wim the image
and droped nu2menu.exe and all its assosiates in the system32 folder

then opend winpeshl.ini and channged
path=x:\windows\system\nu2mnu.exe

and then un mounted then made iso

I now have a windows7 pe with all utilities
ghost32 and a43.exe are on the menu
and to get microsoft menu back put it on nu2mnu
X:\sources\recovery\recenv.exe

if you have no paitence for all this make the bootable Cd win7 PE and put all portable apps on memory stick
I also put opera in system32 and started it from bart menu
also start wired networkin from menu
startnet
(startnet.cmd)which is in system32 already

have fun computing

hello again
I am using windows 7 PE with Bart NU2MENU
I start networking by calling
startnet.cmd
then using opera
I dropped all contents of the Opera Browser in system 32
and use the nu2menu to open browser
when i go to google clouds (google mail) and sign in then when I want to open my Google Docs
it tells me the Browser is not supported
so I used A43.exe to reach firefox 2 in my program files in C: drive
it seem to work without any plugins
and as it is supported by Google apps it opened my documents calender etc

so I am going to mount the boot.wim in waik using imagex again and drop the whole of content of fire fox in there it is 22MB
and add it to Barts NU2MNU

Hii Ben,
The techniques you provided for the Vista and Windows7 are good though I have not tried any. I have recently purchased the Windows7 and planning to install it.
I am running windows XP SP2 on my desktop computer and planning to make dual boot.
I have a query like is there any way to make system recovery of Windows XP like we make of Windows7 and vista?
I know how to make the ghost of Windows XP. I am not aware of making the bootable CD of Windows XP ghost. Is NTFS ghost possible?
