PowerProtect Data Manager provides a custom WinPE image that enables you to recover a source host to a target host without installing an operating system. Because local disks are not in use by the operating system, the recovery process can replace files without conflict.
The custom PowerProtect Data Manager WinPE image is based on Windows PE 10.0, and contains the NIC and disk drivers for the Windows versions that the WinPE image supports.
If the custom WinPE image does not contain the drivers for the NIC or disk devices on the source host that you are recovering, you can perform one of the following tasks:
The drivers must meet the following requirements:
Note: The WinPE environment loads only in memory, and changes are not persistent across a restart. If a restart prompt appears, ignore the prompt if possible. Most NIC drivers are plug-and-play.
