Portlock Products for WinPE

Portlock utilities and bootable CDs for Windows Pre-Installation Environment (WinPE)

Windows Pre-installation Environment (WinPE) is a lightweight version of a Windows operating system used to deploy workstations and servers. Since 2001, Portlock has been busy developing a large set of WinPE utilities for managing and troubleshooting enterprise systems.

The current set of Portlock’s production bootable CDs are based on Windows PE 2.1, which is the lightweight version of Windows Server 2008 (same codebase as Windows Vista SP1).

Available Portlock bootable CDs based upon WinPE (32-bit and 64-bit platforms):

Available Portlock dual-boot CDs based upon WinPE

Our dual-boot CDs offer customers the option to select the 32-bit or 64-bit version at system startup.

  • Portlock Boot CD for Netware (5.26) – WinPE 2.1
  • Portlock SMART Suite for Windows (5.12) – WinPE 2.1


Portlock has customized the WinPE environment with a vast set of Portlock utilities, a friendly user interface, and a large library of drivers. Nearly all storage and network devices are supported, making bare-metal and third party device support a breeze.
