    A couple of threee questions


    Thank you Everybody, Who has helped me with this project. :):):)

    I have a couple of three questions.

    I'm looking at "Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk" --By Kyhi.

    "1) Create a FAT32 > 2GB - 32GB < Partition at the end of your drive". I assume he means the C:\
    drive.

    Is this correct ???

    I now see Win14393PE_x86 ISO and Win14393PE_x64 ISO v170116,

    Are you saying I should create one of these USBs and test it before messing with the Macreum USB ???

    I believe you are.

    I read somewhere that the 32bit will work just as well on a 64bit computer.

    I have a 64bit computer.

    Which one should I use ???

    "1) Create a FAT32 > 2GB - 32GB < Partition at the end of your drive". I assume he means the C:\ drive.
    1. The partition can be created any where, not necessarily at the end but easier just to shrink the partition at the end.
    2. Depend on if your Windows is installed using GPT or MBR disk type. If MBR, you must set this partition to Active then you would not be able to boot Windows (Only one partition can be Active on the same disk).
      You can do this if your Windows is installed with GPT disk type. However, if your C drive becomes damaged then you're stuck. GPT does not look for Active partition to boot from.

    So create the partition on another Internal/external Disk or on a USB.

    KYHI's WinPESE is just a customized WinPE which he added a bunch of utilities including Macrium Rescue disk and convenient to have.
    I built my own WinPESE similar to his with different set of utilities for my need.

    Your Windows is 64 bit so you'd need Win14393PE_x64 ISO v170116.

    I read somewhere that the 32bit will work just as well on a 64bit computer.
    Not true, 32bit can only run 32 bit software, limit to usable 4GB RAM.

    Re last point. Of course the 32 bit version will run on a 64bit pc but not other way round.
