Hiren’s BootCD PE – Windows 10 PE x64 for new generation PCs

On the official homepage of Hiren’s BootCD, Hiren’s BootCD 15.2 is the latest version. Hiren’s BootCD PE was released on the website developed by the fans of Hiren’s BootCD.

Hiren's BootCD PE

Hiren’s BootCD PE includes only a single version of Windows 10 PE x64, supports new generation PCs and supports booting in UEFI mode (UEFI 64-bit, not 32-bit). If I’m not mistaken, like Bob.Omb’s Modified Win10PEx64 and Gandalf’s Windows 10PE, Windows 10 PE x64 from Hiren’s BootCD PE is also based on Win10PE SE.

Hiren’s BootCD 15.2 installs software, DLLs, and drivers on CD and USB drives, making smaller .WIM files and booting faster. Hiren’s BootCD PE includes all of that in a boot.wim file, although programs start faster but this makes this file larger (about 1.2GB), making booting slower and more RAM consumes, requiring at least 2GB of RAM.

Hiren’s BootCD PE includes only free software, .NET Framework 4 and .NET Framework 4.5 are supported.

Download ISO file and add it to USB

See the list of software included and download Hiren’s BootCD PE x64 ISO here, the file name is HBCD_PE_x64.iso.

Like other Windows 10 PE versions, you can easily integrate its ISO file into USB with AIOCreator.exe. Currently the latest version is v1.0.1, please let me know if it has new version.

  1. Run AIOCreator.exe, switch to Integration, select Windows and then select WinPE 7/8.1/10 in the drop down list.
  2. Select the ISO file, then click OK to integrate.
  3. Open the ISO file, copy the HBCD_PE.ini file to the root of the AIO Boot drive. Skip this step if it already exists on the drive.

Now you can restart your computer or use VirtualBox or VMware Workstation to test, boot it from the WinPE & Setup menu. Good luck!

  1. I’m not using Windows 10 as my working computer, don’t know if I ever will but, I am still using Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit (transitioning to 64bit) and eventually all Linux while keeping at least one old system with Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and/or 64bit for older still useful software. I have a hard drive with Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit that I’m currently trying to rescue. Is Hiren’s BootCD PE compatible with Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit and 64bit installations?

    1. Send me the file /AIO/Tools/error.log, I will check it. Now try to open the ISO file, select the sources\boot.wim file to integrate instead of ISO, then let me know the result.

      1. 6/24/2018 11:18:29 AM – 1118 – Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (Version 6.1, Build 7601, 32-bit Edition)

        when try to open the ISO file, select the sources\boot.wim file to integrate instead of ISO, its done, no error.
