hi gugarci. Sounds like you are not having much luck. It is a while since I needed to to this as I now have the paid version but I think I can remember how it goes.

Some questions.

At step 3 did you select the correct architecture for the Netbook x64 x86 etc?
After the download of the WAIK were the messages "mounting the WIM and unmounting the WIM etc displayed in the status area?
Did you get an operation completed popup at the end of the stage?
After you pressed the close button what screens did you get?

I'm 100% sure I chose 32 bit. As far as the rest is concerned I saw a mounting message, don't recall and unmounting message. I'm going to try it again and make notes of the screens that come up and my responses. I'll post again when I try it. Not giving up yet. But like I said earlier I had no issues at all with the Paragon Linux USB rescue media.

A further question.

I notice that your specs say x64. Are you creating this on the Netbook or your x64 Machine?

I have all my PC's listed in my signature. I have 2 x64 PC's. But the netbook is a Win 7 Starter 32bit.

Yes, but are you creating this on the netbook or one of the x64 machines? If so that could be the problem. On a 64bit machine Macrium would be 64bit and you cannot then create a 32bit PE disk from it.

I'm using the Win 7 Starter 32 bit netbook to create the rescue media, and all have failed except for Paragon B&R 2012 free.

What about Win7 built-in backup imaging? Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

I can't think of anything else at present. Perhaps others will have more suggestions.

Does Win 7 Starter have that? And even if it does I'm still going to need to create a bootable usb drive. If it does I'll try it. Also I use Win7 built-in backup imaging along with Macrium in my other 2 Win 7 Pro PC's.
