    Description

    This document is intended to show the versions of WinPE used in each version of LANDESK Management Suite. The goal is to facilitate getting the correct drivers for the WinPE version being used.  Note, these drivers refer to drivers such as Storage or Network Card drivers in order for the Windows PE (Windows Pre-Execution) environment to be able to see the hard disk and access network resources.   This is not related to the drivers that will be on the target operating system if booting into Windows PE for imaging a final OS is an objective.

    Determining your WinPE version

     

    If you upgrade your LDMS version or apply a service pack, your WinPE version will be updated as well.  The WinPE image in contained in the boot.wim and boot_x64.wim files on your core and on your PXE reps.  If you upgrade your LDMS version but do not redeploy your PXE reps they will have an older WinPE version.  If you are unsure which version is running within WinPE you can open a console and type "ver".  This will return the version in x.x.xx format.  Match this up to the WinPE version using this chart:
