Glad you got it to work for you Damien. Odd YUMI didn't run it, that's what I use too.

Thank you very much Britton30 for uploading the x86 Macrium PE ISO file. I needed an x86 for one of my Dell x86 laptops, and yours works wonderful. I use whs x64 for my other Dell laptop which is x64 capable, and he always does such a great job in creating them. You guys have really been a blessing making these ISO's available to others who do not know how to create them or do not desire to download the WAIK, etc. Very much appreciated! Jim

For OEM PC owners I'd have the Windows System Repair Disc ISO (I don't use the installation ISO). Also Hirens Boot CD ISO is a good one with many general utilities and you can access standalone exes.

You're quite welcome and I'm glad it was useful for you.
WHS did the initial upload of the WinPE iso, the WAIK d/l is a pain to be avoided, if possible.

Hi guys


Macrium Reflect Version 5.2.6249 has just been released and I was wondering if anyone has made the new ISO. It says there "Windows PE 4.0 available for XP, Vista and 7".

Quote:
..lifted from Wilderssecurity thread

What's new? 5.2.6249:

Windows PE download optimization
The total Windows PE download size is now reduced from several GB to a few hundred MB. Required files are now automatically

obtained when downloading the Macrium Reflect installer or by accessing the Rescue Media Build Wizard.
Windows PE 4.0 available for XP, Vista and 7
It's now possible to create Windows PE 4.0 (based on Windows recovery media for all Windows Operating Systems. Windows PE 4.0

has more comrehensive hardware support than earlier versions of Windows PE.
Windows Explorer Shell Extensions
Macrium Reflect now has better integration with Windows Explorer and provides more information about image and backup files.

Please see here for more information
New uninstaller
A new uninstaller provides additional options to remove all user settings and files.
Windows PE driver search path improvements
When Windows PE starts all local drives are now scanned for missing drivers in folder '\drivers'. A new file '\drivers

\searchpaths.txt' can be edited to add additional paths, such as network shares.
MBR/UEFI Multi boot rescue DVD
Macrium Reflect now creates rescue DVD media that supports dual boot for both UEFI (GPT) and MBR on Windows 7/8/Server 2008/2012

systems. This makes the rescue media creation simpler and more comprehensive.
File and Folder maximum individual file size in the backup increased.
File and Folder backup now supports backing up individual files up to 1.6TB in size. The previous limit was 400GB.
File and Folder backup memory usage and speed.
File and Folder backups are now more memory efficient and faster for large backup sets.

Bug fixes:

Windows PE 4.0 USB 3.0 detection
Fixed error with PE 4.0 incorrectly showing some USB 3.0 devices as unsupported
Linux rescue CD error
The Linux rescue CD could restore more partitions than selected in the rescue wizard. This has been resolved.
VSS error when Windows installed on dynamic volumes
If Windows is installed on a system using MS Dynamic Volumes then VSS could fail to snapshot the MSR and/or recovery partitions.

This has been resolved.
Clone failure with 'Broken Pipe' error
The disk clone operation could fail with a 'broken pipe' read error if a cloned partition extended beyond the disk boundary. This

has been resolved.
Backup pause button crash
A program error could occur if the 'Pause' button was pressed in the final stages of backup completion. This has been resolved.
Comment in Incremental/Differential
If the backup comment text was modified in the xml then the change was not reflected in the next Incremental/Differential backup.

This has been resolved.
Image restore issue with MS Office
A disk image restore could cause a temporary repair install of MS Office when first run. This was caused by a VSS modification to

a backup registry key used by Office. This has been resolved.
Anyone tried YUMI with the new version of Macrium FREE..?

Watch this post. I have the V4.0 x86 and X64 WinPE iso's created and uploaded. I am going to test each one first.
Odd each one required a d/l from MS although I have WAIK installed.

The DL would be for the WinPE 4 components. I didn't bother at this stage.

Well whatever the V4.0 is, I can't get it to boot. I have tried it two times and it always says file not found. Sticking with the one I have made with Reflect 5.2.5828, I think.

Advising the approximate size of USB stick required would aid forward planning . . .
