    Has anyone found a really good Win 7 replacement for my old BartPE recovery disks?

    Looking for something based on WinPE 3.0 with a decent selection of repair and recovery tools. Can't afford the time to build my own right now.

    Try this tool to make ur own. If u want ready-made things, then choose this.

    Enjoy......

    yes, you are missing something .... the links posted by Tito provide the required tools to change the standard Winre.wim (which is the "recovery" image); into an advanced Winre.wim with more recovery options/tools.

    There is an unfortunate limitation that I'll mention in case it helps someone else.

    To repair a 64-bit Win 7 installation, you need to make a 64-bit recovery disk. But you can't add any 32-bit apps to that recovery disk. Well, you can; they just don't run. Unfortunately, most of the apps I wanted to add are 32-bit.

    You can make a 32-bit recovery disk and run those apps. But it won't perform the major built-in repair operations on a 64-bit Windows installation.

    That's a bit of a shame but it's still a very worthwhile tool to have in your toolbox.
