Windows 7: Macrium Working - but some drives are missing

BartPE was available with V4 of Macrium Free. It is not with V5. The download of the WAIK created a Windows 7 based recovery disk not a windows XP based one that is BartPE.

Thanks for all the info. I had watched whs's tutorial on macrium free 5 before I did anything and so first thing I did was create the win pe rescue disk. Whs warned it would take 1.5 hrs but I have 40mb/s internet and a brutally fast machine so it actually only took 40 mins or so including writing the ISO.

The driver thing is annoying (i tested it). Is there a way to ensure the drivers are burned into the ISO (i really don't understand how the rescue disk actually works). Also what's the value of getting network drivers working? So I can restore an image from say a NAS drive?

I'm trying to remember. I think there is an opportunity to add extra drivers when you create the PE disk if it doesn't find the ones you need automatically.
