When creating a WinPE partition installer in Boot Disk Creator, the option to create a hidden WinPE partition becomes selectable (changes from grayed-out text to a functional radio button) if the option to create a Bootable installer disk is selected.  However, the radio button to create the hidden partition cannot be selected.
