The PEBakery Team are proud to present the ChrisPE project. Use this project to create WinPE from a range of 32-bit and 64-bit Windows sources, including -
Windows 7 (SP1)
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
Windows 8.1 Update
Windows RTM source files are recommended. The sources in the above list have been tested, other source files may also work.
This project has been internally tested and developed over the past two months and is now ready for a public beta release. The PEBakery Team anticipate ongoing development and the ChrisPE project is likely to continue to evolve. This may result in changes to some of the core features such as the menu system and supported shells.
Some of the current features include -
No caching of Windows source files - resulting in reduced storage space requirements on the Host OS used to build the project.
.wim support using internal PEBakery commands - the wimlib library is used for managed wim support. The full contents of the the Windows source and WinPE .wim files are not applied (extracted) to a local directory - resulting in significant time savings.
Support for a range of shells including bblean, CMD, LaunchBar and WinXShell.
This project has been developed as a base from which to add additional features.
Please note that it's been developed for use with the PEBakery builder and will not work in winbuilder as a number of commands are not supported.
Please download from the ChrisPE github repository - https://github.com/pebakery/chrispe

EDIT: Not all the programs are in the basic download, there is a complementary pakage of scripts, I have it almost ready for upload and will be available for download very soon, new scripts are finished and working now, but under test to prevent any malfuntion, the pakage contains 25 new scripts.
I was just playing around with your brilliant tool and just got an thought of integrating the Win 7 and Win 8 both in a single disc.
I will explain in detail:
I have Win 7 in one folder and Win 8 in a different folder.
At first step, I select either the Folder or the ISO of either of the Win versions.
Can we have a method where in I can select two different folders and it loads all the versions found on those ISOs/Folders and then I could choose what all to integrate?
For example, I want to select Win 7 x64 Ultimate as well as Win 8 Pro with Media Center x64.
After selecting this - we should have an option to select updates for different Win versions but the silent installers, tweaks etc could be common.
So when booting from my disc, it will show me both the Win versions and I could select any Windows version.
Is this possible, or is it hypothetical or is it invalid?
Will wait for your replies.
