    Macrium Reflect Free usb rescue media and wifi driver


    Hi,

    I'm trying last Macrium Reflect Free 64-bit UEFI version (6.3 build 1835), and it's working great.

    Only thing I'd like to know, if there are some license restrictions on free version, to the wifi drivers using usb rescue media.

    When I build the usb rescue media, I saw that Macrium added by default my Intel WiFi network card drivers, and if I browse the usb files, I can see on the Drivers\Network\VEN_8086_DEV_08B1 folder the right .INI files.
    But when I boot from the usb, I can see the external usb hd and the backup saved there, but if I go to setup Network options, only ethernet card is available, not the WiFi one, so I can't check backups saved on my nas.

    Thanks a lot

    There is no restriction but it is a bit of a hassle adding drivers to the Macrium Rescue Drive.

    The pay-for version eliminates the hassle part, correct?

    The standard Windows PE does not include WiFi support. You have to customize it with an add-on to gain WiFi support. Kyhi's Recovery Tools contains the add-on to enable WiFi support and also has Macrium Reflect as well:
