Although there are many third-party WinPE systems on the Internet, there are more or less various problems: such as useless software bundles; they cannot customize themselves; the system version is too old, etc…
Let’s take a look at how to make a clean WinPE with an interface.

If you want to know more about the original WinPE without interface, you can refer to:–windows-pe

How to customize a pure WinPE with GUI

Download WinPE

My choice is Win10XPE. The currently supported system version is 1709, 1803, 1809, 1903. After downloading the system image, you need to select one of the 4 to download.

Download Windows System Image

Go to and download the system image corresponding to WinPE. I download the latest version of 1903. (till this moment).

WinPE With Gui

Unzip and run WinPE Configurator

  1. Unzip the downloaded Win10XPE_2019-07-20.7z tarball, Note:The entire path of the directory where the decompression is located —— cannot contain Chinese
  2. Unzip or load the downloaded system image file Win10_1903_V1_Chinese(Simplified)_x64.iso to the virtual CD-ROM drive. The same path cannot contain Chinese.
  3. Click Win10XPE.exe to run the program.

Configuring WinPE

Required settings

  1. First click on WinPE in the tree top left corner (above Figure 1)
  2. Then click Select the Windows 10 Source Folder (above Figure 2)

Configuring the required software

From the left tree directory App, select the software you need to do into WinPE. There are many sub-category categories under the App directory to indicate different categories. Expand to see the included software and choose according to your needs.

Configuring System Core and Custom Software

WinPE With Gui

  1. Click Build Core in the tree directory on the left to enter the Build Core configuration page.
  2. You can see that there are many system related configurations, including graphics driver, network card driver, Microsoft .NET, and so on. More need to choose.
    1) If you want WinPE to be networked, check Network Dirvers
    2) If you have a lot of custom software, check Microsoft .NETFx4 (because many software requires support for .NET components)
  3. Customize the software. To install the custom software, check the Add Your Custom Folder, click Open Custom Folder to open the custom folder, and put your own extra software into the Program Files directory in the current directory, as shown below is my custom software.

LINK %Desktop%\cmder,%ProgramFiles%\cmder\Cmder.exe
LINK %Desktop%\DiskGenius,%ProgramFiles%\DiskGenius\DiskGen.exe
LINK %Desktop%\Norton Ghost 12,%ProgramFiles%\Norton Ghost 12\Ghost64.exe

Generating WinPE image files

WinPE With Gui

Click Play to generate the WinPE image file we need according to your settings. The generated image file will end up in the Win10XPE root directory with the file name Win10XPE_x64.ISO.
If you have already generated the Win10XPE_x64.ISO image file and need to change the customization software or change other settings, just click Create ISO on the left tree and select Create boot.wim and ISO to regenerate the image file. (Clicking Play will regenerate all, which is equivalent to starting from the beginning, it will take more time)
