    The older versions used to have a Linux based OS (like acronis) --very fast boot and loads of generic drivers so it would nearly always find remote machines etc.

    Another problem with the WINPE interface - it goes Bonkers if you have storage spaces on your machine.

    So Macrium "I'm outta here".

    At least I did test it - and I'd suggest they bring back the Linux based stand alone version like they used to have in V5.


    I have never had any issue using the winpe version on any other pc.

    The linux version was far more difficult in terms of driver support and compatibility.

    Installing the imaging program is for making images. For the recovery part you will still need the recovery CD. But if you prefer, you can also make images with the recovery CD. But that is less practical.

    @DeaconFrost - Your intended ultimate use of this could lie (for Macrium Reflect) more in the type of Licensing described here:

    FWIW (and with Jimbo's recent comments jogging my memory), Image for Windows/Linux/DOS (Terabyte Unimited) is also a high reliability imaging software but with even more options insofar as multi-platform and bare metal/deployment type activity -

    Acronis True Image 2012. Hopefully, since then, Acronis has fixed the problem. I never had any problemsater with Acronis TI.
    However, I realize that does not one iota take anything away from those who did and those who do have problems with ATI.
