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:
- Automatic diagnosis and repair of boot problems using a tool called Startup Repair.
- A centralized platform for advanced recovery tools".
WinRE is included on the Windows Vista RC1 DVD image.
