    You can also replace the respectable files into the proper folders for your Windows Installation discs also :biggrin:

    Use copype amd64 & copy across your x86 wim instead & make the mod.
    This way you'll also be able to boot in efi mode...

    Try this:
    Code:
    bcdedit.exe /store C:\winpe\iso\boot\bcd /deletevalue {default} bootmenupolicy

    i have a quick automated script to add most things to a DVD bcd, you just run it from a cmd inside the boot dir with the bcd file. You would obviously have to change alot of parameters like wich entries you want, the paths, etc, but its pretty easy to figure out.

    On Windows 7 AIO I used the following comands above to create my x64 recovery mode:

    bcdedit.exe /store c:\W7\DVDx86\boot\bcd /set {default} device ramdisk=[boot]\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    bcdedit.exe /store c:\W7\DVDx86\boot\bcd /set {default} osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    bcdedit.exe /store c:\W7\DVDx86\boot\bcd /set {default} description "Windows Setup x86 – por Ultimate_live"

    bcdedit.exe /store c:\W7\DVDx86\\boot\bcd /copy {default} /d "Windows Setup x64 - por Ultimate_live"
    bcdedit.exe /store c:\W7\DVDx86\\boot\bcd /set {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-6cf049f6a7fe} device ramdisk=[boot]\sources\bootx64.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
    bcdedit.exe /store c:\W7\DVDx86\\boot\bcd /set {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-6cf049f6a7fe} osdevice ramdisk=[boot]\sources\bootx64.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}


    And after that, I got this images after booting:

    But I tried the same way with Windows 8 AIO, but it didn´t work.
    I have installed ADK. I can integrate all my versions of Windows 8, but I can´t make x64 recovery mode to work.

    Where can I find the language pack for WINPE of Windows 8 ?
    Because my Windows 8 installation is Brazilian Portuguese but the recovery mode is still in english. So, I want to change it to Portuguese.

    Dont quote me but it should be in the language you download your Windows 8 image as. As far as integrating language packs, you have to use the DISM command and I don't know how to do all that stuff yet via CMD. I know for a fact there are other members on here that maybe able to help such as alphawaves and a few others. Sorry I cant help you out on this o_O

    I found the reason. It is because Window 8's boot manager comes in two boot modes or what Microsoft calls: boot menu policy.
    By default, it is set to "Standard" which will automatically boot into the first boot image that is found. You have to change it to "Legacy".

    The command looks like this:
    bcdedit /store bcd /set <ID> bootmenupolicy Legacy

    I am having error with this command. Any idea?

    Code:
    C:\WinPE\ISO\boot>bcdedit.exe /store C:\winpe\iso\boot\bcd /deletevalue {default
    } bootmenupolicy
    The element data type specified is not recognized, or does not apply to the
    specified entry.
    Run "bcdedit /?" for command line assistance.
    Element not found.
