Interesting question ... one I asked of the MR folks myself. And they told me YES. So, I went through ALL the problems of using WAIK -- only to find out later that the download and install were NOT needed.
Appears that with v5, MR "bundles" the option to create the WinPE disk with the product, so really, no WAIK download or install is needed.
I confirmed this on another PC, one in which I had NOT dowloaded or installed WAIK, and it made essentially, the same WinPE disk.
So, basically, NO, you do not need to mess around with WAIK anymore to make a WinPE disk.
