Actually I want to make an fully automated installation script of WindowsImage through WinPE.

Everything I created worked fine and I can load image file directly from USB drive or from network location.

Now I want want to go next step and load the image file from http server. Actually we are adapting often the image file, so we want a source were we always have the actual one for international locations.


So I tried to use this one with PS in WinPE:

$source = "http://yoursite.com/file.xml"
$destination = "c:\application\data\newdata.xml"
Invoke-WebRequest $source -OutFile $destination

Download works but really really slowly, so for a 4Gb image it would take about 4 hours and this is really too slow.


After that I tried with module BitsTransfer, but didn't work, I asked in MSTN, they told me Bits is not available in WinPE.


So maybe you have an alternative method/idea which would work?
