Missing or corrupt winload.exe - WinPE Vista

By slimmswitch ·
Hey Guys,

When i use my WinPE to apply a wim file to a laptop i always receive the error:

Missing or corrupt winload.exe

I can then use the WinPE disk to run the following commands for fix the issue:

bcdedit /set {default} device partition=c:
bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=c:
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=c:

What i would like to know is if there's any way to incorporate this command line into the image so i dont need to run these commands manually each time after a re-image.

winload.exe, Problem.

Tools to have: Ultimate Boot Cd:

Copied from another forum

Inside windows folder I find one boot folder but no trace of winload.exe, I then open system32 and of course winload was not there but ? surprise there was another boot folder, open it and winload.exe was there, I simply copy it in my system32 folder, quickly restart and now my computer starts ok.
