Introduction
Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) is a minimal Windows system based on the Windows XP Professional,
Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista kernels. It can be used for repair purposes should the system become
unbootable.

Solution
To create WinPE with Acronis True Image, you will need to:

Install Acronis True Image BartPE plug-in. See Installing Acronis True Image plug-in for BartPE in Working with
Acronis True Image Plug-In for BartPE.

Depending on the product version, Acronis WinPE ISO Builder locates Acronis True Image BartPE plug-in using
one of the following registry keys:
Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageWorkstation\Settings\BartPE
Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageServer\Settings\BartPE
Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEnterpriseServer\Settings\BartPE
Acronis True Image Echo Workstation:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEchoWorkstation\Settings\BartPE
Acronis True Image Echo Server for Windows:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEchoServer\Settings\BartPE
Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEchoEnterpriseServer\Settings\BartPE

If you move Acronis True Image BartPE plug-in to another folder after installation, change the registry key
accordingly. If the above key is missing, Acronis WinPE ISO Builder will not work.

Insert your WinPE distribution CD into the media drive of the computer. If you have a distribution copy on the
hard disk, copy the path to it. The distribution files must be unpacked and allocated in a separate folder.

(!) Acronis does not ship WinPE distribution files. You can get it from Windows Automated Installation Kit.
Install Windows Automated Installation Kit;

Issue the following command:

"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\copype.cmd" x86 C:\WinPE

Select Start -> Programs -> Acronis -> Acronis True Image -> Acronis WinPE ISO Builder.

Specify the C:\WinPE\sources\boot.wim file to build WinPE ISO;

Provide a file name;

Rename the created file to C:\WinPE\sources\boot.wim;

Issue the following command in Windows command prompt:

"C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\oscdimg.exe" -n -b"C:\Program Files\Windows


AIK\Tools\PETools\x86\boot\etfsboot.com" C:\WinPE\ISO C:\test.iso

Use any third-party tool that will burn ISO image to CD or DVD.

(!) Media based on Win PE 2.0 and including Acronis True Image requires at least 512 MB of RAM to work.

More information
The Acronis Universal Restore add-on to Acronis True Image, if installed, will also be included in the ISO image.
