You will need  to add\build in the ms scripting package "WinPE-Scripting.cab" to your winpe to make it work

"WinPE-PowerShell_en-us.cab" and more,  Here are all or more packages that you can add in starting from a clean boot.wim @line 1 using the ADK

Dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"C:\WinPE_amd64_PS\media\sources\boot.wim" /Index:1 /MountDir:"C:\WinPE_amd64_PS\mount"

Many years ago i have started using this for doin' the disk queries for my winpe boot project

#include <Array.au3>

_GetDriveInfos()

Func _GetDriveInfos()
    $var = DriveGetDrive("FIXED")
    Local $aDiskDrive = 0
    Dim $specifs[$var[0]][8]
    For $i = 1 To $var[0]
        Dim $Services = ObjGet('winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2')
        Dim $DiskDrives = $Services.ExecQuery("Select Caption, DeviceID From Win32_DiskDrive")
        For $DiskDrive In $DiskDrives
            Dim $DiskPartitions = $Services.ExecQuery("Associators of {Win32_DiskDrive.DeviceID='" & $DiskDrive.DeviceID & "'} Where AssocClass = Win32_DiskDriveToDiskPartition")
            For $DiskPartition In $DiskPartitions
                Dim $LogicalDisks = $Services.ExecQuery("Associators of {Win32_DiskPartition.DeviceID='" & $DiskPartition.DeviceID & "'} Where AssocClass = Win32_LogicalDiskToPartition")
                For $LogicalDisk In $LogicalDisks
                    If $LogicalDisk.DeviceID = $var[$i] Then
                        $specifs[$i - 1][0] = StringUpper($var[$i])
                        $specifs[$i - 1][1] = $DiskDrive.Caption
                        $specifs[$i - 1][2] = Round(DriveSpaceTotal($var[$i]) / 1000)
                        $specifs[$i - 1][3] = Round(DriveSpaceFree($var[$i]) / 1000)
                        $specifs[$i - 1][4] = StringFormat('%.2f', $LogicalDisk.Size / (1024 ^ 3)) & ' GB'
                        $specifs[$i - 1][5] = $DiskPartition.DeviceID
                        $specifs[$i - 1][6] = $LogicalDisk.VolumeName
                        $specifs[$i - 1][7] = $DiskPartition.Type
                    EndIf
                Next
            Next
        Next
    Next
    _ArrayDisplay($specifs, '$specifs')

Thank you! I've saved it in my disk lol. But it still depends on so many modules. And it cannot detect hidden partitions.

Maybe try this?

I've found your code is so powerful! By the way, could you please help extract the part that determines whether it is an active partition? Thanks a lot! (To ensure which partitions can be booted)

Thanks.:) To make a partition bootable (NB: only one (1) partition can be bootable per physical drive, so you always need to edit two flags, not one), look for, and edit boolean IsPrimary (any non-zero value = True; usually 0x01 or 0x80); it's the first byte of each partition table entry in the MBR. In the UDF, see var $partition_active in Func _ReadPartitionEntry for more info.

WARNING: any changes you make to these low-level descriptors is entirely your own responsibility. Please ensure you back up your entire physical drive (not just the files on it), before you start tampering with it. In this particular case, editing a single byte can result in your system no longer booting at all, and no easy way of fixing it. Only proceed if that scenario does not concern you at all.

I've got it! And do you know how to show a hidden partition? I mean, to give a letter to it.

Assigning drive letters has got nothing to do with physical drives; you need to look into SetVolumeMountpoint for that.

To hide/show logical volumes, see the remarks section of the UDF:

- hide/unhide logical volumes (simply set/reset bit4 of a volume's Partition_Type in its (E)MBR partition entry)

OK, I've got these APIs. Now I can use FindFirstVolume and FindNextVolume to get all GUIDs, and then assign letter to them. But when I try to use Find First/Next VolumeMountPoint  to find out its letter, I failed (actually it can only get the mountpoint I set to, not the drive letter.)

OK. Now the problem is solved. Thanks to everyone! This is my code below, hoping to help others--

Func _GetVolumeMountPoint($sGUID)
    $tPathName = DllStructCreate("char[2048]")
    $aResult = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", 'bool', 'GetVolumePathNamesForVolumeNameA', 'str', $sGUID, 'str', $tPathName, 'dword', DllStructGetSize($tPathName), 'dword', DllStructGetPtr($tPathName))
;~  _ArrayDisplay($aResult)
    Return $aResult[2]
EndFunc
