Windows PE, my hero

Yesterday I was struggling around with some 3rd party tools which (untfortunately) causes my system to spit blue :(. Fortunately the registry was back upped by this tool, so I could restore it from another OS. That's where Windows PE comes into play. Thanks to Windows PE, I was able to restore my system without the need to install another OS parallel with my Windows Server 2003 installation.

Windows PE stands for Pre-installation Environment. It's a small Windows release of Windows XP which can run completely from a CD-ROM (compare it with running DOS from a diskette). I'm using this tool for my SchoolServer project at Microsoft Belux but unfortunately it's only available for volume license customers of Microsoft. However, there's a free alternative on

Indeed, I know of this as well, but I'm involved in a project of Microsoft Belux where we need to deploy Windows PE itself. Thanks for the feedback!

i get a error.. saying..

Error message...
Source files wrong version.

File version "e:\i386\ntdll.dll" is 5.1.2600.0 should be 5.1.2600.1045 or higher.

You must use Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Server 2003 version of windows!

You'll need to perform a slipstream SP update. Take a look on the internet to find more information on this topic ("Windows XP SP slipstream"). Basically, you copy the i386 folder to the harddisk, download the service pack, and run the service pack executable with a flag (/integrate) to indicate that you want to slipstream to the given location (of the i386 folder). This way, you create a Windows installation source folder with the SP integrated.
