Use macrium command link to access regedit, taskmgr, notepad, diskpart etc.
Well I finally did it. I used DISMGUI from here Mike's Blog to add the Macrium programs to the Windows 7 recovery disk on a USB stick. I used the DISM approach because you don't need the WAIK to run it. DISM is a part of Win 7.

Chaps - an interesting thread.

Has anyone been able to restore from a NAS using Macrium Free? Does the LINUX boot CD see the network?

I'm installing a NAS tommorrow and plan on scheduling my Macrium images to it - it would be a fruitless exercise if I couldn't see it in the event of having to perform a restore......

I've not tried a NAS. What I would do is to try and access the NAS with the boot disk before using it for your backups. If you can see it then set up a small test partition and put a few files in it. I set mine up as 100Mb. Then see if you can back it up to the NAS and restore it from the NAS.

I can't help with the dvd error but the reflectpe.exe file is part of the macrium winpe which only comes with the pro version.

I downloaded it (reflectpe.exe) from the pebuilder.zip on the Macrium website. (I'm running free Macrium at this stage)

I'm not sure but there may be two versions one for x86 and another for x64.
