I posted a little app somewhere on this forum which will make a macrium winpe cd - without needing to download WAIK.

Can't recall where that is now.

Kado will know

I still have the files. There were 2 versions of RunMeASAdmin. If I remember correctly the first one didn't work on my HP laptop but the second did. I think these were for version 4 of Macrium though and they are x64 only.

Thanks.

Actually , you need to install macrium v5 - the trial version works fine for this.

Unzip the file you posted onto your drive.

Rt click and run as admin.

That's it.

You can reistall the free macrium v4 again afterwards if that is what you are using.

The v5 winpe cd you just made works perfectly even if you are using v4 from within windows.

Win PE

Siw2's post is the way I went with Mac 5. The Linux disk I made was a bust. Only tried it once and I went to the WinPE ver. WinPE works really great and I only made one attempt at it. I did have to dl WAIK. Macrium searches for it when creating the iso.

Actually I'm using Macrium Reflect v5 free, only reason I mentioned V4 was that it was the last version which supports making bartpeCD(which is no longer downloadble), although I got around it by finding the plugin files somewhere but now I'm stuck with BartPE requiring win2k files so scratch that and I opted for UBCD4Win instead. It couldn't detect the inf and xml file so it took some time till I found the right .inf and .xml(Macrium plugin) files in the UBCD4Win forum. I'm currently creating a UBCD4Win USB right now and I'll be trying the winpe posted above as a second choice.

Okay this is getting tiring even after spending more than a day's worth on this, I'm starting to think that BartPe or UBCD4Win can't be loaded on new systems like my HP Dm1z E350.

First issue is with the ACPI.sys, before I can enter Windows(BartPE or UBCD4Win) system will BSOD on me.

Same error as this one
Ubcd4Win Boot Issue With Dell Xps 15 Laptop - UBCD4Win Forums

I've read somewhere that I have to disable ACPI on newer systems which no longer test XP so I downloaded a .inf file to disable it in BartPE/UBCD4Win.

So now I can get to the Windows XP logo with the loading bar and now I'm faced with another BSOD.

I also can't use the program above as I'm running Windows 7 32bit.

Searched a bit more in google and now I'm stuck with an ACPI error and a Sata/AHCI driver error.

I'm getting tired over it, I think I'll just re-install Windows from the start and use clonezilla.

RE: Macrium

Okay Macrium Rescue CD sucked but so did HP on my dm1z.

I've gave up running any BartPE or UBCD4Win on my dm1z due to many issues like

Requiring ACPI.sys to be disabled or blue screen
Requiring AHCI Driver on XP Pe(Bart or UBCD) or blue screen
UBCD's driver packs didn't help containing AHCI drivers didn't work = blue screen
Lack of Options in EFI like disabling built-in LAN or reverting to IDE/Legacy.

I've tested the same tools including Macrium on my Desktops and they all work fine so I'll keep Macrium on those machines and just Clonezilla my Peculiar lappy.

I opted for clonezilla instead and it got the job done although it took 45mins total in Backing up @900MB/Min, making md5 and sha hashes, testing the image and slack time of the program. Macrium only took 5mins and backing up the same partition 10gb for clonezilla and 5gb for Macrium.

It's been a while since my last post since I've been busy at school with all the major subjects and all.

Thank you to all those who spent time to help me.

Have you tried making the WinPE disc with Macrium v5 yet? You said a couple times that you'd do this as a last resort, but it sounds to me like that would've been your best option right from the start.

Remember that BartPE is built on old Windows XP code whereas the current WinPE versions are Vista/7-based and more compatible with various hardware setups.

I already had the 100mb clonezilla in my hdd so skipped to it instead of downloading 1.7gb WAIK.

I'm going to try it next time I have lots of free time for alternative options on newer systems like my dm1z although I think I'll opt for a WinPE with GUI, maybe I can copy-paste some standalone programs like Drive XML and macrium reflect
Just finished re-installing Windows 7 from a clonezilla restore image and it took 15mins total.

Well yeah getting WinPE in the first place would have probably saved me the hours of headache in two days but I always want to try different options first; Maybe it's just me
