In the Ghost Boot Wizard what is the difference between WinPE and WinPE-512?


Solution



WinPE default (a.k.a WinPE 256) included in the Ghost Boot Wizard, has fewer drivers, not all of the language fonts, and no WMI packages. It is the minimal and very basic WinPE. It is used to work with the computers that do not have enough memory to use WinPE 512.

WinPE 512 included with the Ghost Boot Wizard will have most all of the drivers, language fonts and WMI packages, but does not include language packages. The computer needs at least 512-MB of memory to use WinPE 512.
