Windows 7: Macrium Reflect v5 query

Win 7 ultimate x64 sp1
 
 

i built a linux and a winpe recovery disk. the linux could see my hard disk, but not my external usb3 hdd. the winpe disk (and the bcd menu recovery winpe option) could not see either the usb3 or the sata hard disk (uli m1573 controller). i managed to get macrium to rebuild the boot.wim to include the usb3 drivers, but it would not even recognise the uli drivers. i found after some searching that the uli drivers were not signed , so macrium's prog to add drivers would not recognise them. found that there is a utility dism.exe in win7 (deployment image servicing and management tool) that will insert drivers into the boot.wim and with a command line switch, will even load unsigned drivers. it worked and i can now use my recovery cd as well as the bcd boot menu version.

i did use it to do a recovery of my c:\ drive after doing something silly that corrupted a few system files that sfc then refused to fix, and it worked perfectly.

i've also noted a few inconsistencies. the default options allow a post backup shutdown. no option for hybernation or standby (sleep). however when running, you now have the option to sleep or hybernate as well. you can edit the .vbs and change the shutdown -s command to shutdown -h (i'm not sure how to change that to force a standby, tho i could figure it out with a bit of effort) so the scheduled backups will hybernate unattended. also, do not have your power scheme turn off your hard disks after X minutes, as it appears to confuse v5 if they do not restart quick enough & you might get destination errors.

there are a few other flakey bits i hope they fix in upcoming releases.

I have restored two images using the V5 Win PE standard Edition on my laptop with no problems.
Was this the free Macrium Reflect v5?

No it is the Standard paid for version.

I've used both the V5 Standard (paid) MR edition and the V5 FREE edition to restore a couple of different PCs -- and like v4, it worked fine both times.

I like the fact that MR included the WinPE Boot option in the Standard version without having to go through the grief of dealing with WAIK.

They have been issuing a bunch of updates recently, so I'm hoping that means the product is getting better, not just newer.

A lot of the recent updates have concerned the PE.

I have Macrium and have restored with it a couple of times with no problem. What I am wondering is that if my HD were fried and I had to get a new one, would Macrium backup to a new formated drive just as easy?
