Windows 7: System Imaging Tool W7

Kado and Cr00zng, yeah, that's what I was trying to think of. Windows PE 2.0.

It's not my computer that's not seeing the E-SATA, Cr00zng. There's a couple of others that are having problems with it. Wife has the Linux rescue CD and there's no problem at all. Like you said, could be the BIOS, or a hardware issue with the ones that are having problems.

I think it very much depends on your hardware and bios. I don't know about eSata but the linux rescue disk had trouble seeing a USB attached drive reliably. The Win PE disk finds it every time. The only problem is that it is only available with the paid version. The paid version isn't all that expensive (30 inc tax in the UK) and it does have extra features.

I use the free version and the linux rescue disk. The rescue disk has no problems seeing eSATA.

If you install macrium on XP , you can download the free BARTPE component. ( They call it PE Builder now )

That is the same as the winpe 2.0 component.

You can then put the PEBuilder files on any 32 bit pe media , including pe2 and pe3 . It works great.

If you have windows 7 - you already have pe3. ( Winre.wim in the %systemdrive%\recovery directory, or boot.wim on the recovery disc/installation disc ).

Can the licensed version of Macrium backup full drive instead of partition only?
As far as I know, Macrium has no "disk cloning" capability (at least I do not see one in their specs). But you can backup all the partitions on the drive in one run - only the recovery is partition by partition.

So how would you use it in Windows 7 to build a boot disk?

There is an option in the wizard to take an exact copy. I don't know if that is strictly a clone.

In the free version I never saw that. Is that an option in the Pro version?
