Fair use rationale for Image:Winpe.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Winpe.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

The newest version is 3.0, based on the Windows 7 build 7600 kernel.[edit]

But down in the next section is a version 3.1...! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.182.150.42 (talk) 08:51, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

what about Windows Server 2008[edit]

Is not mentioned? only 2008 R2...

Wrong Information about WinPE[edit]

As a Windows support engineer, many of my customer issues were with installation hence perhaps a deeper experience (not based on external documents only) with Windows "installation". I'm rusty on NT 3.1 but Microsoft Windows since 1993 have used Windows to install. Win95 betas released in 1993 included. (Note that DOS 7 himem.sys initiates 32-bit protected mode on the CPU and provides XMS 3.0 services providing 64MB XMS 2.0 services in VMM.) Win9x used mini.cab (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/136830), a version of Windows 3.1 to run the installation. Occasional fixes for setup and doublespace issues involved rewriting the version info from 4.95 to 3.11.Shjacks45 (talk) 10:36, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

An image used in this article, File:WinPE2005.png, has been nominated for speedy deletion for the following reason: Wikipedia files with no non-free use rationale as of 7 June 2012

What should I do?

Don't panic; you should have time to contest the deletion (although please review deletion guidelines before doing so). The best way to contest this form of deletion is by posting on the image talk page.

  • If the image is non-free then you may need to provide a fair use rationale
  • If the image isn't freely licensed and there is no fair use rationale, then it cannot be uploaded or used.
  • If the image has already been deleted you may want to try Deletion Review

To take part in any discussion, or to review a more detailed deletion rationale please visit the relevant image page (File:WinPE2005.png)

This is Bot placed notification, another user has nominated/tagged the image --CommonsNotificationBot (talk) 16:45, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

WinPE auto-restarts itself?[edit]

 To prevent its use as a production operating system, Windows PE automatically stops running the shell and restarts after 72 hours of continuous use. This period is not configurable.

It should be mentioned. Galzigler (talk) 18:32, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
