    I just noticed this tutorial on creating an IFW boot disk based on Win7 PE...

    http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/howto/tbwinpe_tutorial.htm

    The instructions are really easy to follow and you can use a CD or USB flash drive. The flash drive boots in under a minute. One thing that really impressed me was imaging and restoring over the network was supported and very easy to use.

    Recently we discussed using IFW from a 32-bit Win7 DVD. The above method works with 32-bit and 64-bit Win7 installations.

    You can edit startnet.cmd before building the ISO to enable an auto restore CD.

    Excellent, Brian. This prog has unendless possibilities. Will test it for a flash drive (when on my wlan connection, just now on mobile), the 1,6 GB win7 AIK download I mean .

    osip,

    I think so too. And it built the ISO in a minute or so. The fastest WinPE builder I've used. You could build several ISOs and put them on a grub4DOS flash drive. One to restore the C: drive, another to restore the whole drive, etc. Or just use IFW manually.
