Pull down menu with disk info

Recommended Posts



i have build an installation GUI for our company's network installation for Vista/7/8.1.

Now i want to add a pull down menu wich shows me all HDD/SSD  that are available in the machine with the diskpart disknumber so that i can edit my answerfile for the creation of the partitions.

I know what i want but i don't know how to create it.

Can anyone help me with this?

You can find my script attached to the post.

Help would be appriciated.


Headsup: There could be al bit of dutch in the script.

Did you try a WMI query ?

Global Const $wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10, $wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20

$oWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & @ComputerName & "\root\CIMV2")
If $oWMIService = 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Error", "WMI error")

$sQueryDisk = "select * from Win32_DiskDrive Where InterfaceType  != 'USB'"

$colDisk = $oWMIService.ExecQuery($sQueryDisk, "WQL", $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)
If NOT IsObj($colDisk) Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Error", "Unable to detect any disk drive")

For $oDisk In $colDisk
    ConsoleWrite( @CRLF & "####################################" & @CRLF & _
        "Disk Model : " & @TAB & $oDisk.Model & @CRLF & _
        "Disk Number : " & @TAB & $oDisk.Index & @CRLF & _
        "Disk Size : " & @TAB & $oDisk.Size & @CRLF )

Look at the >AutoIt Script-o-matic tool, it could help.

Dim $sResult
$strComputer = "."

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_DiskDrive")

For $objItem In $colItems

    $sResult &= "" & $objItem.Caption & @LF & " (" & Int($objItem.Size / 1024 ^ 3) & "GB) |"


#include <ComboConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, -1, -1)

$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Kies schijf...", 128, 200, 369, 25, BitOR($CBS_DROPDOWN,$CBS_AUTOHSCROLL))
    GUICtrlSetData($Combo1, $sResult)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


I did not get the script to work now, i have been searching and editting a little bit and i have come up with this script.


Only problem i have now it won't run in WinPE can anyone help me with this, i really am stuck with this part.


What i am trying to do here is: Create a pull down menu with the drives connected to the system in it, and after the drive is chosen and the start button is clicked it needs to be able to change a xml file for my diskpart function to work.

If chosen drive has disk 0 in diskpart then input that in the xml, but if chosen drive has disk 1 then that etc.


Hope you guys can help me with this.
