Hi,

Sorry this doesn't work for you : I agree, use the WAIK as a workaround.

Out of interest, if you use Macrium to burn a traditional rescue CD/DVD, do you get the same error message?

Regards,
Golden

Don't know because this netbook has no cd/dvd drive. And putting the ISO created by Macrium 5 on the usb drive does nothing.

You need either to incorporate it into YUMI as in the tutorial or instead of creating the ISO Macrium gives you the option to create a bootable USB with just the Macrium PE on it.

And I tried both tutorials and Yumi and Unetbooting did not work. I even tried just putting the ISO on the USB drive alone since someone here mentioned that v5 can save the ISO to the USB device. But now that I think about it, I used an image that I created earlier that day was saved originally to my desktop. Maybe I'll try creating a new ISO with Macrium and save it directly to the USB.

As soon as I get access to my son's netbook I'll try this and if it doesn't work I'll try making the USB PE boot device.

pardon me, but can i ask, can the bootable usb drive created by yumi be used for other purposes like storage, or has it become solely a bootable usb drive only and not meant for other uses (storage)?

Hi,

You can still use free space on the USB to store other items if you wish.

You can use the free space but you must not disturb the existing directory structure.It is probably safest to add a new directory to the root for your stuff.

I'm just not having any luck with this netbook. I downloaded the file and followed the instructions on the link below.
Create a Custom Windows PE Rescue Environment

I have followed every step about more than 5 times and I still cannot get it to work. Everything is like the tutorial except I never see step 4. The Rescue Media Drivers page never displays! At the end I keep getting the following error message:
"Failed to create Win PE USB rescue media. The USB drive may be unsuitable please try another drive."

This is a Asus Eee with Win 7 Starter and I'm using a 4GB SandDisk flash drive formatted to Fat32. Also to play it safe I have downloaded the 1.7GB file 2 separate times in case one was corrupted. And have started from scratch 3 times by uninstalling and reinstalling the WAIK.
