Updated 18.10.23Start by selecting New-PEBuildTask and select the WinPE tab. Keep the Task Name simple, and remember WinPE will be automatically added as a Task Name prefix.

You have the option to use WinPE.wim or WinRE.wim as the base image to create WinPE Media. I always recommend selecting WinRE

You also have the option to include -AutoExtraFiles and set the -ScratchSpace. The default Scratch Space for WinPE is 32MB, but if you do not select an option (since this is not a Mandatory parameter), this will automatically be set to 128MB.

You will be prompted to select an OSMedia to use for the Task. By design, if you entered a Windows Version in the Task Name (1803, 1809) you will only be shown OSMedia that matches that Windows Version.

WinPE Additional Content

If you have added WinPE Content to OSBuilder (DaRT, Drivers, Extra Files, ADK Package), you will be able to select them to complete the Task.

Complete Task

Once the Task is complete, you can use New-PEBuild to build the Recovery Media


And this is what you expect to see from WinPE. You can customize this further by adding your own Frontend, use it with MDT, or even use it as a ConfigMgr Boot Image
