BartPE is based upon WinPE (pre-envrioment OS) which is included with Vista
and is the boot mechanism and provides the Vista repair options which are
more comprensive than the Recovery Console.
WinPE initially was only available to "Enterprise" customers, however it is
now included with WIAK (Windows Image Administration Kit).
It can be modified to icnlude applications and be boted from CD/DVD, RAM
disk or USB. Detailed instructions are included in the WIAK.
