Tutorial Overview
Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) 3.0 is a minimal Win32 operating system with limited services, built on the Windows 7 kernel. It is used to prepare a computer for Windows installation, to copy disk images from a network file server, and to initiate Windows Setup. Windows PE is not designed to be the primary operating system on a computer, but is instead used as a standalone preinstallation environment and as an integral component of other Setup and recovery technologies, such as Setup for Windows 7, Windows Deployment Services (Windows DS), the Systems Management Server (SMS) Operating System (OS) Deployment Feature Pack, and the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE).

Make sure that you have your Windows 7 product key, a 25-digit alphanumeric code unique to your copy of Windows 7. If you intend to type it in during the install! You can, when you get to this step, skip it, as you have a grace period on the finished installation, before activating. If Windows originally came preinstalled on your computer, your product key should be located on a sticker attached to the side, back, or bottom of your computer.
