Windows Recovery Environment tutorials

  • The Windows Recovery Environment is a partial version of the operating system. It is based on the Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) but has a primary purpose of recovery. It includes several tools you can use in the event of a serious failure on your server to perform operating system or full server recoveries.

  • The tools included in the WinRE are as follows:


Windows Complete PC Restore

  • If you created a full server backup, you can use the Windows Complete PC Restore tool to fully restore your operating system and server. If you select this option, the system will search for a valid backup location (such as a DVD drive or a portable USB disk drive). You can then restore from the full server backup stored on this location.


Windows Memory Diagnostic tool

  • If you suspect your server has problems with the physical random access memory (RAM), you can use this tool to check the RAM. This tool does require a valid server 2008 installation to function. If you choose this option, you will be prompted to either restart the computer immediately and run the Memory Diagnostic tool or allow it to run on the next boot.

Command prompt

  • You can access to the command prompt with administrator privileges in the WinRE. This allows you to access the file system if needed. You also have access to Windows Backup Admin (Wbadmin) commands.


Launching WinRE

1. Insert your Windows Server 2008 installation DVD, and boot from it.

2. When prompted to set your language and other preferences, click Next.

3. On the Install Now page (shown in the following graphic), click the Repair Your Computer link located at the bottom-left corner.


4. On the System Recovery Options page, you can select the operating system that you want to repair. If there arenít any operating systems listed, you can still enter the WinRE environment by clicking Next.

5. On the Choose a Recovery Tool page (shown in the following graphic), you can choose

Windows Complete PC Restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, or Command Prompt. Choose Command Prompt.



  1. In the command prompt window, enter wbadmin /?. Youíll see a list of commands available via the Wbadmin tool in WinRE. (wbadmin commands explain above)
