WinRE – Windows Recovery Environment

A new team blog has been launched by Microsoft.  WinRE is a derivative of WinPE and is intended as a replacement for the Recovery Console.  We’ll see it "live" for the first time with Windows Vista.  MS says:

"WinRE provides two main functionalities:

  1. Automatic diagnosis and repair of boot problems using a tool called Startup Repair.
  2. A centralized platform for advanced recovery tools".

WinRE is included on the Windows Vista RC1 DVD image.
