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

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
