You can only run what is on the system, possibly you could run
something which is a command line if you have a USB disk with that
program on it. You don't have the full windows, just the pe

John, how is that accomplished?If I boot the Windows 10 Creator
Update and start Narrator, I can't run anything or even open File
Explorer. I'm usually pretty on top of these things, how do I get
to a place where I can run something? Others have told me this is
possible, and they've told me Shift+F10 works, but I've never
found that to be the case. Thanks in advance for any help on

First thing to do is get yourself a copy of the late Carlos Nazario's Windows pre-installation environment with NVDA. There's one for Windows 7 32- or 64-bit, and Windows 10 32- or 64-bit systems. You get these from Create the DVD, then put it aside while you do the next step.

Next step is to create a standalone copy of Image for Windows. I created an audio demo of how to do this. Get it from at

Finally, boot the Windows pre-installation environment DVD you created, and when the talking Desktop starts talking, run your standalone IFW and do the restore.
