Hi tyee and welcome to Seven Forums. Yes it does, you can either boot from the iso to make an image in the WinPE environment or you can download the free Macrium (the link is in my sig) and image from within Windows. The iso is needed for the restore.

Yes. It images any partition(s) - whether it is an OS partition 32 or 64bit, a data partition or even a Linux partition (with the WinPE CD).

Not sure what that means but there is a link to a pre-built WinPE rescue disk linked at the start of this tutorial by whs. You just need to burn it to disk. Imaging with free Macrium

All I can say I have WAIK and made the pe disc. All I have in the directory path you indicate is a file "waiklog.txt".
??Have you downloaded the correct WAIK??. Once you have it it's worth having because you can do other thing like easily build your own W7 pe discs.

If you have downloaded Macrium OK, you should see a several menus at the top. Choose "Other Tasks" and one of them is "Create Rescue Media". Make the WinPE media.

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,
