Subject: [TechTalk] Resize Partition in PE


Is there a tool in the Win PE that will allow me to resize NTFS partitions? I can do this in Linux, but sometimes, third party tools yield uncertain results.


Re: okay, I messed up real good.

 

Hah, got this after I sent my question.

thanks sir

Active@ Disk Image is already included in my WinPE images. So once you
have booted into WinPE, you can just run the program from the desktop,
select
"Image to Disk"
from the
"Tools"
menu, and locate the image on your external drive to restore it. The
Win10PE images can be downloaded from the same page as the documentation
here.

I remember reading this readme before, thank you.
My question is how would I restore the image? This is after I have
moved it to an external hard drive. I look through my files and can't
seem to find the WinPe7 and 10PE files that you had created.
Would it matter which version I use? Ultimately I want to use the
image I made from before I upgraded to windows 10. I had windows 7 64
bit at the time. I'm hoping to at least get some instructions down so
that I can walk someone through it, like I've had to do with other

It figures that it wouldn't be that easy--for me at least. I have the

windows is installed on.
I'm guessing that I will have to burn it onto a cd/dvd in order to use
it. The instructions I looked up for booting into WinPE sound too
complicated to me so I might have to find someone who can do it all

I can't seem to remember how to do it, I dimly recall you explaining

That

I couldn't get my computer to work right with certain programs
that
somehow needed my other account, which I had made an admin
account,
to
run them. I got fed up and went to reset windows and keep my data.

I
was a complete dumbass and hit reset even though there was a
warning
about how I would not be able to rollback to windows 7 if I did
that.
So I have some issues, though I am only listing 3 of the main
ones.

1. So, now my system sounds don't work at all. What I mean is the
asterisk sound, and the other sounds you hear like when navigating

a
program or website or even when the UAC window pops up. The only
sounds I hear are the windows start up and down sounds and the
default
windows notification sound. I went through sound settings, where
you
can change themes etc, but I couldn't find the path to the old
sounds.
I tried to google the answer myself, but couldn't find crap about
it.
2. Since I reset I had to reinstall programs and one that won't
install is the latest version of iTunes, it gives me an error and

I
had tried to install older versions of the program but no go. I
remember hearing something about 32 bit, but my computer is 64
bit
and
I made sure to download that version.
3. I attempted to download MS Office 2007, which I have a key
for,
and
when I go to verify it says the key is either not valid or the
program
it is for is not supported ... I went to the page to download
2007
so
I have no clue why it is doing that. I think I will try and call
microsoft accessibility about that or download the basic, non pay
editions of word and excel.

I guess what I am mainly whining about is I made a disk image
with
Active@ disk image of my computer right after I upgraded. Would
that
image put everything back to how it was before I fucked
everything
up?
I know that is a [pipe dream but a girl can wish. When I went to
run
active@ I chose mount image but itdidn't tell me anything so I
figured
I needed a sighted person to do it. Do I or is there a step I am
missing to mount the image I have?
On a side note, I have an image of before I upgraded to 10, when
I
still had 7, would that magically fix stuff back to before
everything
screwed up? lol

This would all be a lot easier if I could fly someone like Carlos

to
come fix my shit. I don't have anyone, that I know of, well
versed
in
computer stuff.

kk, I'm done ranting and crying. When my mom and sister come home
they
will have no sympathy for me since they are computer dumb and
would
have no idea of what I am saying.

god I wish I had alcohol or something in this house















Re: okay, I messed up real good.

 

So it doesn't matter if I use the 7 or the 10 version?

Man, you are so good at translating complicated stuff and breaking
down steps so they sound doable.
Too bad you don't have the temperament to be a teacher, lol. You
should really get paid for this stuff.

figured
I needed a sighted person to do it. Do I or is there a step I am
missing to mount the image I have?
On a side note, I have an image of before I upgraded to 10, when I
still had 7, would that magically fix stuff back to before

This would all be a lot easier if I could fly someone like Carlos to

Re: okay, I messed up real good.

 

I remember reading this readme before, thank you.
My question is how would I restore the image? This is after I have
moved it to an external hard drive. I look through my files and can't
seem to find the WinPe7 and 10PE files that you had created.
Would it matter which version I use? Ultimately I want to use the
image I made from before I upgraded to windows 10. I had windows 7 64
bit at the time. I'm hoping to at least get some instructions down so
that I can walk someone through it, like I've had to do with other
computer issues. If things go awesome for me I will be able to get
help from someone who knows what they are doing and I won't have to
worry too much about it.

thanks a lot Carlos

It figures that it wouldn't be that easy--for me at least. I have the

windows is installed on.
I'm guessing that I will have to burn it onto a cd/dvd in order to use

It is not a pipe dream. As Gene says, either image will restore your
system to the exact state it was in when you created that image. That
is
after all the point of images. However, it is not enough to simply
mount
the image. The entire drive/partition must be overwritten so you must
boot
into another environment like WinPE to restore the image.

It will restore your computer to exactly how it was when you made

and you will be able to revert to Windows 7 if you wish and if

I couldn't get my computer to work right with certain programs that
somehow needed my other account, which I had made an admin account,
to
run them. I got fed up and went to reset windows and keep my data. I
was a complete dumbass and hit reset even though there was a warning
about how I would not be able to rollback to windows 7 if I did
that.
So I have some issues, though I am only listing 3 of the main ones.

1. So, now my system sounds don't work at all. What I mean is the
asterisk sound, and the other sounds you hear like when navigating a
program or website or even when the UAC window pops up. The only
sounds I hear are the windows start up and down sounds and the
default
windows notification sound. I went through sound settings, where you
can change themes etc, but I couldn't find the path to the old
sounds.
I tried to google the answer myself, but couldn't find crap about
it.
2. Since I reset I had to reinstall programs and one that won't
install is the latest version of iTunes, it gives me an error and I
had tried to install older versions of the program but no go. I
remember hearing something about 32 bit, but my computer is 64 bit
and
I made sure to download that version.
3. I attempted to download MS Office 2007, which I have a key for,
and
when I go to verify it says the key is either not valid or the
program
it is for is not supported ... I went to the page to download 2007
so
I have no clue why it is doing that. I think I will try and call

Hi Melissa,

How much money are you willing to spend for a backup drive? The 1 Carlos
mentioned is good, but I recently saw a 2 TB My Passport for $65.00 as well,
& I've seen 4 TB Seagates for as low as $120.00. If we know what you're

Take care.

Although I have read the docs, I can't seem to find how to modify an existing template.  I found how to create and or  delete a template but not how to modify a template.  The docs tell me that the "standard format" template is the beginning point for a newly created template, but I can't figure out where to go from there to make changes.  Help, please!

Of course you are the voice of common sense that I lack at times. I will keep your suggestions in mind while looking.

There is no reason to get hung up on the file system. Most external drives which are intended to be used on Windows are formatted as NTFS by default, but this detail is not really relevant since you can always reformat the drive to use any other file system if necessary. As for the type of connection, most modern external drives will have a USB 3 interface. You should always select USB 3 since it is backwards compatible with USB 2 and it is a good future investment even if you don't currently have access to USB 3 ports.

I was looking at a similar price as you shown Carlos. I got confused when I ran into the choices for file types and connector types. NTSF,FAT32,USB, ANDUSB 3. I was hung up on all of the choices to sort my search.

Do you had a suggestion for an external hard drive? What size? I will have to look into getting one then and hope it doesn't cost a lot of money. I don't really use much space for my files, just books and maybe A few movies or TV shows.

Unfortunately, that might be challenging since the image file would have to be split into smaller pieces to fit on to DVDs. This is more difficult after the image has already been created. Active@ Disk Image can split the image for you and even write it on to DVDs, but this has to be done at the time the image is created. It cannot be done after the fact. If some other software were used to split the image so that it would fit on to DVDs, Active@ Disk Image might or might not be able to reconstruct the image from such DVDs.

Thanks much, I don't have any other hard drive. So I suppose burning it is my only recourse since a partition won't work. Melissa

You don't have to burn the image to DVDs. You can just copy it to another hard drive. It can be another internal drive or an external drive. As for booting into WinPE, I don't think I can tell you anything which will make the procedure much easier, but you can read all about WinPE and the methods for booting with it in the documentation here.

The ReadMe file covers just about everything I've ever said about WinPE.

It figures that it wouldn't be that easy--for me at least. I have the
image, but it is on a partition on my hard drive, the same one that
windows is installed on.
I'm guessing that I will have to burn it onto a cd/dvd in order to use
it. The instructions I looked up for booting into WinPE sound too
complicated to me so I might have to find someone who can do it all
for me because right now I'm feeling really freaking stupid and
frustrated all to hell.
I can't seem to remember how to do it, I dimly recall you explaining
it to someone but I can't remember what to use for the search on the
IO page since I failed to save the information.

Lucky me I have backups of everything, but I can't use them. :P

It is not a pipe dream. As Gene says, either image will restore your
system to the exact state it was in when you created that image. That is
after all the point of images. However, it is not enough to simply mount
the image. The entire drive/partition must be overwritten so you must boot
into another environment like WinPE to restore the image.

It will restore your computer to exactly how it was when you made the
image. If it worked properly then, it will work properly after you restore
from the image.

and you will be able to revert to Windows 7 if you wish and if thirty
days haven't past since you initially upgraded.

I couldn't get my computer to work right with certain programs that
somehow needed my other account, which I had made an admin account, to
run them. I got fed up and went to reset windows and keep my data. I
was a complete dumbass and hit reset even though there was a warning
about how I would not be able to rollback to windows 7 if I did that.
So I have some issues, though I am only listing 3 of the main ones.

1. So, now my system sounds don't work at all. What I mean is the
asterisk sound, and the other sounds you hear like when navigating a
program or website or even when the UAC window pops up. The only
sounds I hear are the windows start up and down sounds and the default
windows notification sound. I went through sound settings, where you
can change themes etc, but I couldn't find the path to the old sounds.
I tried to google the answer myself, but couldn't find crap about it.
2. Since I reset I had to reinstall programs and one that won't
install is the latest version of iTunes, it gives me an error and I
had tried to install older versions of the program but no go. I
remember hearing something about 32 bit, but my computer is 64 bit and
I made sure to download that version.
3. I attempted to download MS Office 2007, which I have a key for, and
when I go to verify it says the key is either not valid or the program
it is for is not supported ... I went to the page to download 2007 so
I have no clue why it is doing that. I think I will try and call
microsoft accessibility about that or download the basic, non pay
editions of word and excel.

I guess what I am mainly whining about is I made a disk image with
Active@ disk image of my computer right after I upgraded. Would that
image put everything back to how it was before I fucked everything up?
I know that is a [pipe dream but a girl can wish. When I went to run
active@ I chose mount image but itdidn't tell me anything so I figured
I needed a sighted person to do it. Do I or is there a step I am
missing to mount the image I have?
On a side note, I have an image of before I upgraded to 10, when I
still had 7, would that magically fix stuff back to before everything
screwed up? lol

This would all be a lot easier if I could fly someone like Carlos to
come fix my shit. I don't have anyone, that I know of, well versed in
computer stuff.

kk, I'm done ranting and crying. When my mom and sister come home they
will have no sympathy for me since they are computer dumb and would
have no idea of what I am saying.

god I wish I had alcohol or something in this house
