All EaseUS WinPE bootable disk



Introduction

The most of EaseUS product can create a WinPE bootable disk, and the WinPE bootable disk only includes some common device driver. For some special drives, it can only be added after boot from the WinPE bootable disk, but it need to be added each time after you boot from the bootable disk.

To avoid adding driver each time, we provide a solution to add desired drivers to the WinPE bootable disk ISO file directly, and then the iso file can be burned to a bootable disk.
This article will let you know how to do that.

Solution


1. Run the create WinPE bootable disk function in EaseUS product to export an iso file.

 

Then open this iso file with UltraISO tool and the UltraISO can be downloaded from here.


It is suggested that you should create a workspace on your partition, such as a wim folder on E: partition, then create an intel and temp folder under this folder. And then extract the BOOT.WIM file from the opened iso file and save to wim folder.


2. Download the desired drivers for your RAID, USB3.0 disk or network devices and save the drivers to intel folder. Such as the driver file iaAHCIC.inf and all the other related files.


Note:

The version of driver file needs to be matched with the WinPE bootable disk.
32bit WinPE bootable disk requires 32bit driver file
64bit WinPE bootable disk requires 64bit driver file

 

3. Run CMD with Admin account.

4. Jump to wim folder with command line: cd e:\wim

5. Check the information about BOOT.WIM: dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:E:\wim\boot.wim

 

6. Mount BOOT.WIM file: dism /mount-wim /wimfile:E:\wim\BOOT.WIM /index:1 /mountdir:E:\wim\temp

 

7. Add driver: dism /image:E:\wim\temp /add-driver /driver:E:\wim\intel\iaAHCIC.inf

 

8. Check the added driver: dism /image:E:\wim\temp /get-drivers

 

9. Save and unmount it: dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:E:\wim\temp /commit

 

10. Use UtraISO tool to replace the original BOOT.WIM with the one which you have added driver and then save this iso file.

 

After that, the driver files have been added to this iso file successfully, and you just need to burn a bootable disk with a free third burn software.
