If your hardware has x64 capability, it will work.

Note : if you want to boot the WinPE ISO from a USB drive (I use YUMI) then you must rename the ISO such that there are no spaces in the name. For example, rename it like this:

Macrium 5.0 WinPE.ISO ---> Macrium_5.0_WinPE.ISO

Failure to do that will result in the USB not booting.

Very good. I did not know that either. But I typically do not use USB sticks for booting.

That's right. YUMI does a search function that errors if there are spaces.

I checked google also there i found many ways to find whether hardware is 64 bit capable :

1.Computer properties > windows experience index > view and print detailed performance and system info > there under system> 64 bit capable

In my case "64 bit capable is marked as yes.

2.But using msinfo32.exe it shows x86-based pc.

3. using regedit.exe it again shows x86 system.

Only first method says my system is 64 bit capable and not 2 and 3.

Why there is difference. If 2 and 3 shows my hardware is 32 bit then what does first method meant by "64 bit capable : yes".....

2 and 3 show what is now installed, not the capability of the system, nor are they able to. Download GRC*|*SecurAble: Determine Processor Security Features*|** and run it, it has no installer and runs from the .exe file.

Thanks a lot you cleared the confusion...

The software showed mine is 64 bit capable hardware/CPU......So this means i can use the 64 bit win pe rescue cd(uploaded here) for my 32 bit windows as Whs said earlier.??

I have one more doubt though this forum is for windows seven..But i have windows vista sp2 (originally sp1).
When i tried to create win pe rescue cd just for checking in macrium it asks for downloading 1.7 gb AIK. I searched separately in microsoft download site there i found 1.7 gb aik is for windows 7 and for vista sp1 and server 2008 its 1.3 gb.
Though AIK download for windows 7 also has windows vista sp1 as system requirement.

1.Will windows 7 or windows vista sp1 aik create any difference.???
2.Do i have to download windows vista sp1 aik separately and manually using this in macrium and not asks for macrium to downlaod 1.7 gb aik.????
