Hello, is it possible to directly load and boot into the Windows Recovery Environment over PXE? To apply repair-tools or diagnosis for example. Our company is trying to accomplish this to support our technicians whenever a user is having some kind of trouble booting his standard image. The technician then can apply the RE over PXE and try to repair the users system. However I'm not sure how to make a winRE deployment over SCCM. What I have done is creating a task sequence where the according .wim file is loaded as a boot-image. When testing the task sequence just runs through and shuts down or restarts the computer. What I want is for the computer to remain inside the Recovery Environment and to be able to apply repair options etc. With WDS it's pretty easy to accomplish this. I haven't figured out how to do it with SCCM, as you are only able to apply task sequences and not boot-images directly. Im glad for any help.
Hi All, I need some help on deploying Windows RE in 1) Fresh Install 2) Existing Install Background: Laptop is having Single partition which is Active, Boot, System, Recovery & Healthy Primary partition. I am NOT using Bitlocker for encryption. I Want To: Create separate partition for Windows Recovery Environment. Conditions: 1) I will not be using Apply Windows Recovery Environment(WinRE) which is readily available in MDT Task Sequence as I may update the winre.wim file & would need to push updated image to clients. 2) I need to deploy this recovery environment to Fresh Install as well as Existing Install Let me know how I can achieve the objective I am having MDT 2012 Update 1 & SCCM 2007. I have done testing in MDT 2012 Update 1 for creation of Windows RE Partition which works well if I call the Task Sequence ( by going to DeploymentShare & launching LiteTouch.vbs manually). But if I select the same task sequence in the LiteTouch Deployment , it fails giving error regarding REagentC.exe as Task sequence fails to disable the existing recovery environment. Below is in my Task Sequence in MDT. 1) Diskapart command to shrink, format & assign drive letter for Windows recovery (S:) 2) Create folder structure S:\Recovery\WindowsRE 3) Copy winre.wim from Deploymentshare\Scripts folder to S:\Recovery\WindowsRE 4) Disable Windows RE Environment ( reagentc /disable) 5) Set Recovery Environment Reagentc.exe /setreimage /path S:\Recovery\WindowsRE /target C:\Windows 6) Enable Windows RE Environment ( reagentc /Enable) Thanks In Advance Mandy!
