That is true. But I think it's OK as long as you know that.

Would it not be a good idea to update your iso download
?
Kado said it might have issues using/ restoring 6.1 system images :/ I hate saying he said stuff sorry in advance Kado

I believe you also over state the downloading time of the newer version WinPE inside Macrium it only takes about 5-10 minutes or at least for me and i'm on snail at&t :/

I don't think I want to update it because, as you said, the newest downloading times are not that dramatic. That was changed at one point in time.

I loaded another copy of WinPE from a commercial version of Macrium WinPE which did some boot changes, I also tried to restore a backup that didn't work, Macrium WinPE denied to attempt to use it

The laptop boots with no OS on the SSD, with the following error; Status: 0xc000000f from Windows Boot Manager.

Yep it's actually not a big deal now to use macrium's download
Compatibility wise with the newer version especially when using the full system restore from boot has to be considered and what I was mostly worried about,
Best to be safe heck even do both what the heck and verify all

The problem, none of the boot discs are working, the Windows failed to start error happens, then after a few seconds the computer restarts. It's as if the computer completely ignores the disc in the drive.

The boot discs to which the computer ignores are;

Macrium WinPE created in Windows 8/10
Multi-boot Windows Repair Disc
The WinPE ISO provided by WHS.

How am I ever suppose to restore a backup ? Arghhh.

The WinPE I created with Macrium Free isn't loading the Macrium GUI where I can proceed with business; unless unaware to me your WinPE can do equivalent ?

FYI: Cost of SSD 250GB in 2011 (when this thread started) $615.
Cost of SSD 1TB Transcend now.....$339/free shipping.
Heck, how can one not afford the need for speed. (Samsung 250GB 85 bucks, is all I need.)

I can't disable fast start if I can't boot into Window, right ?
Since as I've been saying; I can't get my back up restored, until I can get my back up restored, nothing will happen.

That does sound like a real issue :/

When something like that happens it's best to remove the exist drive and insert the new
Not sure where you have the system image located hopefully not on the effected hdd ?

For the record that boot screen is weirdest I've personally ever seen but the icon shown was even weirder you had selected
There was a single disk icon and on the far right a usb flash symbol
The sigle disk icon I believe the third from the left end would of been my guess to boot to with the recovery cd inserted :/
You were on the second from the left end.
So have you tried any of the other boot icons is my question ?

Either way a clean install is probably your best option and use this to recover your personal files after it,
