    Perhaps... But, why? There is neither WiFi nor Bluetooth support in the Macrium rescue environment.
    Because 2 people on this thread including storageman reported that theyre able to use bluetooth mice in the PE rescue environment.

    I have exactly the same situation on my Surface Pro 3 lappy. Bluetooth Arc Mouse. Have never had it work in PE, booted from thumb or the Boot Menu option. Never, in 3 years. Support is not there. I've simply gotten used to using the touchpad.

    Although I have not yet tried, scuttlebutt elsewhere indicates that tools such as Rufus or anything similar will allow savvy endusers to add EXEs and other stuff, similar to amendments added to Senate/House Bills, onto USB or DVD boot concoctions -- in short, it might be possible to add Bluetooth ability to same -- again, such things I have not yet tried.

    Make that 3 (including me) that say they used a wireless mouse. I just used a wireless mouse successfully in the Macrium rescue environment. The environment was built without the mouse installed. It is a USB wireless mouse, not a Bluetooth mouse.

    Wireless does not necessarily mean Bluetooth.

    If Storageman or JohnBurns actually used a Bluetooth mouse, then maybe you have a hope of making it work despite what Macrium support told you.

    Yes, I can use my Logitech wireless and pair it to the laptop or DT at the same time, switch on the mouse bottom. But, as you say, that's not BT, it's the built-in wireless.

    Storageman and JohnBurns..

    Weigh in on this. Do you use BT or wireless mouse in macrium PE recovery? If so how do I add a bluetooth wireless driver to PE?

    When you build the PE environment for the Rescue Media, there's a screen in the sequence to add a driver manually. The Macrium KB (Knowledgebase) has a nice article on this topic: v5 - Adding drivers to WinPE rescue media (drivers, Windows PE). I used my wireless Logitech M325 mouse just a few minutes ago when I booted into the Rescue Media disk I made yesterday for my production desktop. It communicates wirelessly with a Logitech Unifying Receiver to do its thing.

    So that's 3 we know of (including myself) using Logitech radio (2.4 GHz - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logite...fying_receiver ) mice through a USB dongle. No problem getting USB interface in rescue environment but you won't get BT.

    Not true. Blue tooth is a different form of wireless vs a real wireless mouse/keyboard that that communicates on a different band.

    Edited to add: I use a Logictec wireless USB mouse. Not a bluetooth mouse.

    I can use my Logitech M705 mouse within the rescue environment of Macrium Reflect.
    Logitech uses a USB dongle which is included with the mouse.
