Do you mean the Automated Deployment Kit - It's called the ADK now.

Hmmm, I see the mui files for it in the en-us subdirectory, but no winpe-srt.cab in the folder. Maybe this is Vista snafu all over again, did you try grabbing it from a W8 install.

EDIT: Here is link I found, maybe helpful

Nope, but the winre.wim is in the system32>Recovery folder (inside install.wim), mount with dism and use that as your baseline. You can add custom packages to it.

The OPK for Windows 8 will be available here (click on the "OPK" tab):

http://www.microsoft...oads.aspx#Tab_3

Royal OEMs already have it. But we, the lowly "System Builders" will have to wait a few more months to get it.

Regards.

There is no "OPK" for Windows 8, per se. OEMs and System Builders use ADK for everything. Any "OPK" you can get for Windows 8 is documentation only.

I've never once used the SRT package in anything. You can easily build your own recovery image by using the built-in winre.wim.

Any guides on that? This is something I been wanting to do for a while now.

Guides on the winre.wim? Well it just uses winpeshl.ini to launch apps, usually recenv.exe. You can see my post about adding a custom command into the recenv program so that I can install a Windows WIM using the built-in Setup.exe with an answer file here:
http://www.msfn.org/...385#entry918385

This is Wiindows 7 specific however, I haven't gotten far enough into testing to build a custom Windows 8 recovery partition yet.

Michael Niehaus of Microsoft is reporting that they have non-technical reasons for not providing this to anyone, so I guess the winre.wim or boot.wim is the only way to go unless/until someone pacakages up a replacement cab we can use.

That's a typo, he meant WinPE-SRT.cab, it's for adding recovery disc to winpe 4.0 - which we currently can't do with the ADK because it's been removed.

WinPE-SRT

The Windows Recovery Environment feature package. Provides a recovery platform for automatic system diagnosis and repair and the creation of custom recovery solutions.

On second thought, if they removed it from only the RTM, maybe it exists in the RP versions of the ADK, anybody have a copy and could look, I never downloaded the RP version so I don't know.

The RP ADK documentation is good ONLY because it has an Index on the CHM. RTM ADK doesn't, which is annoying! but... the information is more complete just difficult to search for. :rolleyes:

Just installed the 8.1 ADK, it seems the WinPE-SRT.cab is AWOL again.   But we have the LP

Aunty Mel of MDL is working on a winsxs tool that reads the new compressed modules.   Maybe it will be useful in the future for extracting the .cab from the winre.wim.

update Nov 5.  Extraction went successful, here is info on WinPE5.0-SRT.
