Today’s column by Fred Langa is the second recent reference I’ve seen to BartPE:

Bart’s PE Builder helps you build a “BartPE” (Bart Preinstalled Environment) bootable Windows CD-Rom or DVD from the original Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 installation/setup CD, very suitable for PC maintenance tasks.

It will give you a complete Win32 environment with network support, a graphical user interface (800×600) and FAT/NTFS/CDFS filesystem support. Very handy for burn-in testing systems with no OS, rescuing files to a network share, virus scan and so on.
This will replace any Dos bootdisk in no time!

Sounds like an interesting tool to check out, or at least have handy for when you need to grab data off a drive that won’t boot any longer. 🙂

For the record, the first reference was from Kevin Devin.
