AOMEI PE Builder Beta

An application that enables you to create personalized preinstallation environments, complete with a partition manager and system backup software
Unlike a fully-functional operating system, the Windows Preinstallation Environment (also known as Windows PE) is basically formed out of the minimum services required to boot and run a system. Hence, it is used to verify the functionality of computers, or in order to organize them before the actual installation procedure.

Create a personalized PE

AOMEI PE Builder is a software utility that enables you to create customized PE disks, using some of your own files and documents in the process and a few other useful tools you might need in such situations. To store all of these files, you are allowed to either create a bootable CD, or a removable USB flash drive. In addition, it is also possible to save all the contents inside an ISO document and store it on your computer.

As far as the other tools included into the package, you are offered a hard disk partition manager, which can be used to handle your drives before an installation, by creating, deleting or editing the available volumes. Furthermore, you can also make use of the provided backup and restore utility, which can save your vital files and recover them in case they become corrupted.

Add your own files and applications

Since the entire idea behind the application is to let you personalize the preinstallation environment according to your necessities, you are allowed to add your own files to the package, in order to access them from within the PE. Hence, you can add anything from programs, to text documents or images, as long as you do not exaggerate when it comes to the overall file size, since you might stumble upon memory trouble.

As far as the actual PE, the application provides you with a familiar and improved environment for you to work from, complete with taskbar, start menu a file explorer and even a desktop. Hence, you can perform the desired operations much easier, without having to deal with the usual lackluster interface found in the default version of the PE.

A reliable Windows PE builder

Despite the fact that it is rather slow when it comes to the amount of time needed to create the disk, AOMEI PE Builder is a very useful utility to have around. In addition, the included partition manager and recovery software make it even easier to deal with broken operating systems, as well as to pre-configure computers before installing their OS.
