    We are discussing how to boot from a usb image made with Macrium Reflect in this thread:

    http://www.eightforums.com/general-s...ash-drive.html

    I just thought I would mention it here.
    It contains good info about Macrium.

    Delete this if it is not wanted.
    I don't want to stir up animosity with Wizards & Mages who already know all about it.:arg:

    Very helpful. I've threatening myself to use Macrium for some time now. Thanks!

    Seems like as soon as I set up one boot environment, a new one comes out. I just made a USB boot using WinPE 4. Now 5 comes out like a week later. See why I procrastinate? But it doesn't always help.

    I started the referenced thread because I had a booting problem from the Macrium stick on my Asus Tranformer. That was a stick produced on my x64 system. The Transformer has a x32 Windows 8.1. Once I produced the stick from the x32 system, it worked.

    Then I ran into a new problem. I had placed an image on the MicroSD card of the Transformer. That went well with the installed Macrium and could also be recovered with the installed Macrium - it was a small test partition with some data.

    With the recovery stick, however, I could not see the MicroSD card. That was finally resolved too - SIW2 made me a beautiful .iso with Macrium and a bunch of other programs. That Macrium can see my MicroSD card - an apparent problem with the original PE.

    Version 5 has been out for quite a while already. You must have missed it. It supports Windows 8 and 8.1. If you are Windows 7 only, you don't need it.

    The free Macrium that just came out has it is what I mean. I just built the USB for WinPE 4 using the Macrium that was "new" a few days ago. Why I hate that is it's almost like there's no point in testing booting a stick as the test is moot if you make a new PE boot. Test all over again. I hate just booting for the sake of booting.

    Edit: of course if I could afford a bunch of sticks then I could leave the previous one as is for a bit. Poverty makes for lousy choices.

    That can't be it. Sticks cost nothing - especially small sticks. All you need is a 1GB stick. But those they do not seem to make any more. 4GBs seems to be the smallest. And even those cost only pennies.

    It may be pennies to you. But with no real shipping address it's almost impossible to buy online. Very few outlets allow you to specify USPS for cheap or free shipping. They are the only ones who will send to GENERAL DELIVERY. And forget about getting to a Walmart in Miami unless you have a transit pass. Those are $100/month. Not a trivial sum when you have virtually no income.

    Walmart will send some office related gear free to FedEx Office stores. In that way I purchased a USB mouse and keyboard for my Laptop. But most of their USB sticks are "outsourced" to other suppliers. Same shipping problem.
