Portable Diskpart GUI Micro v2.0

diskpart-gui-micro

 

The program is designed to prepare a hard disk for installing OS Windows in the WinPE environment.
If you’ve been using computers since the early 1990s, chances are you’ve heard about fdisk. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a software that comes with MS-DOS and Windows that allows you to format your hard drive and create logical partitions. Starting with Windows 2000, Microsoft DiskPart is an utility that takes the role of this useful application.
The application does not have (natvely) an interface, but it may be installed and run from the command line. On a side note, the program does not work with PowerShell on Windows 10. You can open the program and begin controlling your disks and volumes after completing the simple installation.
It’s worth noting that the tool works with scripts, so you should list and pick the item you want to work with before conducting any activities.
You’ll be pleased to learn that the detail command allows you to learn more about the volume you’re managing once it’s been selected.
You can also change the primary drive and assign new letters to the partitions at the same time.
The application supports standard, extended, and logical partitions, and you can delete or extend those that are already set up.
Import, retain, creating volume stripe, and putting up a raid from many hard drives are all noteworthy activities.
You may also use the convert command to turn a drive into a dynamic or basic drive by selecting the MBR or GPT partitioning types.
System requirements:
1. Windows 7(x86/64) or newer.Restrictions:
1. If path to “cmd.exe” or “diskpart.exe” is different from “%SystemDrive%WindowsSystem32” – “Diskpart GUI Micro” will not work.
I don’t have a crystal ball.
2. “Diskpart GUI Micro” can repartition drives only in “Windows Preinstallation Environment” (a.k.a. WinPE)With command-line argument “/expert”
this restriction will be removed. It’s at your own risk.
