Windows Recovery Environment

Boot into WinRE can be useful to quickly repair the installed Windows: system recovery start, the recovery from an image, roll back to a restore point, change boot options, finally, access to the command line, which means the ability to do a lot of interesting things, such as format C:.
In addition, you can run regedit.exe and other system programs, and even some third-party software, unless of course for it does not require running a "normal» Windows.
The alternative of course is to boot from the installation DVD or ISO-image, but the launch of WIM-image recovery environment directly will be faster - it weighs much less than a DVD.
In addition, one USB-stick can be positioned several WIM-image, for example, 2 images WinRE varying the bit (x32 + x64), and other images from the "repair» DVD. I loaded the same way AntiWinLocker, and this without having to have a separate ISO with him.
In general, the ability to upload the WIM-image can be very useful. So let's get down to business.

In fact, personally, I create a bootable USB flash drive based GRUB4DOS, but now look at least an alternative method to manage only the standard Windows OS tools.

What is needed

1) the very image winre.wim , which can be received in two ways:

- from the installed system in Win7 it is in the C: \ of Recovery \ recovery-guid (where recovery-guid folder - is a set of letters / numbers); in Win8 and above - in the C: \ of Recovery \ WindowsRE .

Or the folder C: \ of Recovery can not exist, then it is a special boot partition the Windows «Reserved system", which has a size of 100-500 MB of disk space and is located before the main system partition C: \ .
Then the smaller sections need to assign a letter to the Disk Management.

A more complicated case: the folder \ Recovery is located on a hidden OEM recovery partition , which already do not just assign a letter, you need to face it change its type .
This is done using the command line, run on behalf of the Administrator , and the DiskPart :

DISKPART> list disk
DISKPART> select disk 0
DISKPART> list partition
DISKPART> select partition 2
DISKPART> detail partition
DISKPART> set id = 07 override
DISKPART> assign

( disk 0And partition 2are for example, see the real number of the desired disk / partition in the output of commands. list, Using detaila look and note the ID section to change to get it back)

IMPORTANT: winre.wim , copied from the recovery partition created by the computer manufacturer, or a laptop, may differ from the standard and does not have the functionality you need !
Therefore it is better to take it

- from the installation DVD from the image \ sources \ the install.wim - within the image file is in the path \ the System32 \ of Recovery .

WIM-images can be mounted in the system using the DISM :

md C:\wim
rem в Win7:
dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\Recovery\recovery-guid\winre.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\wim /ReadOnly
dism /Mount-Wim /WimFile:D:\sources\install.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\wim /ReadOnly
dism /Unmount-Wim /MountDir:C:\wim /Discard
rem в Win8/8.1/10:
dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:С:\Recovery\WindowsRE\winre.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\wim /ReadOnly
dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:D:\sources\install.wim /Index:1 /MountDir:C:\wim /ReadOnly
dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:C:\wim /Discard

or discover the latest version of 7-Zip.

2) auxiliary file boot.sdi - is also located inside winre.wim or install.wim on the way \ the Windows \ the Boot \ DVD \ the PCAT , or DVD in \ not boot .

3) program bootsect.exe to make a bootable USB flash drive - also seek to WIM in \ the Windows \ the System32 , or DVD in \ not boot .

formatting the stick

Usually it does not need, and the stick, as a rule, have a single partition formatted in the FAT32 (despite the fact that many of the creation of a bootable flash drives guidelines recommend formatted in NTFS, it is not required), which is active (bootable). Or it may not be. 🙂
Therefore, if your flash drive does not boot, format it as follows:

DISKPART> list disk
DISKPART> select disk 2
DISKPART> create partition primary
DISKPART> select partition 1
DISKPART> active
DISKPART> assign

( disk 2Set an example, see the actual number of your USB drive in the previous command, or you can format the hard drive;. Use format FS=NTFSif you prefer)

Creating a boot sector

bootsect /nt60 E:

(where E: - a letter, which is mounted under the stick)

Installing bootmgr loader

Again, there are 2 ways: using the installation DVD without it.
1) First, we consider a method using only the existing system:

bcdboot C:\Windows /l ru-ru /s E:

It must be remembered about the bit version of the OS!
If you create a USB flash drive with the x32-version WinRE to treat x32-systems, and the source system where the boot loader is copied using BCDboot.exe, be it x32. Pro x64, respectively, the same thing.
But the advantage is that in this method you can have on one USB flash drive at least 10 versions WinRE - on all systems (Windows Vista / 7/8 / 8.1 / 10 + similar server versions) and any bit depth. At the same time. Without registration and SMS. 🙂

2) If you use a DVD, then you must copy the following files and folders (and of course the manual copy version of Windows is not important):


(this is - the minimum set of required files can be manually copied from the system and from the disk the C: - WITHOUT using BCDboot.exe , which will copy more files)

Digression about the different versions of Windows
on which you take the file bootmgr , will depend on what will be the bootloader: text, with keyboard controls or graphics, with support for the mouse.
Win7 uses a text mode, and Win8 / 8.1 / 10 - graphic.
Text option, of course, loads faster.
3 font files above - a minimum set of Russian language for bootmgr from Windows 7 , in addition, these files are optional - without them, the font will be more straightforward.
Newer versions of Windows use more font files.

I recommend using bootmgr from Windows 7, and the image winre.wim from Windows 10 , as Recovery Environment theoretically improved from version to version.
Where to get the files: from the installed system or from a DVD - does not matter.

Creating boot record

cd /d E:\boot
bcdedit /store bcd /copy {default} /d "Windows Recovery Environment"
bcdedit /store bcd /set {new-guid} device ramdisk=[boot]\boot\winre.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
bcdedit /store bcd /set {new-guid} osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\boot\winre.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
bcdedit /store bcd /set {new-guid} locale ru-RU

(where {new-guid} - the GUID of the new boot record, see the output of the first team.)

After the sequential execution of commands boot record will be created, but its content will be slightly different, depending on where the file storage was taken as the BCD .
This is due to the fact that the basis for creating a new record come from different original records from the store: to run the installation program, or to boot Windows.

A complete listing of the work boot record, taken from the DVD Windows 7 x32:

Загрузка Windows
идентификатор           {c53853d4-c6c5-11e5-af22-0018f368b2c9}
device                  ramdisk=[boot]\boot\winre.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
path                    \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
description             Windows Recovery Environment
locale                  ru-RU
inherit                 {bootloadersettings}
osdevice                ramdisk=[boot]\boot\winre.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
systemroot              \windows
detecthal               Yes
winpe                   Yes
ems                     Yes

On the basis of this record, you can just create other, for example to download winre.wim of the x64-version of the Windows, just by changing the way to the WIM-files in the parameters deviceand osdevice.

Copying WIM-image

Copy the files winre.wim and boot.sdi in the folder \ boot on a flash drive.
The folder can be any (then correct the path in the commands bcdedit above), but both files must be in the same folder.
To download multiple images of only one file boot.sdi .

Booting from USB drive

Be sure to set the BIOS to boot from USB, and after a while you find yourself in the Windows Recovery Environment.

PS Commentators suggest that this method does not work on computers and tablets with UEFI.
But check it out (and can upgrade these instructions) I'm not on anything because of the lack of a suitable device.
