    I installed Macrium free on my Windows 10 Hard disk. While creating rescue media it is showing Win PE 5.0 i.e for Windows 8 and not showing Win PE 10.0 but on Macrium Site they are showing Win 10.0 PE also and some where mentioning that on Win XP this PE 10.0 is not available but mine is Windows 10.
    Windows PE is a modified version of the Windows operating system that is designed to support installing Windows and troubleshooting and recovering an installation that can no longer boot. Third party software use this to add their own software to boot and run from RAM. This is what Macrium Rescue disk is built from.

    When you create a Rescue Disk. Depending on what OS you are using, You have the choice to select which kernel you want to use to boot from. On the first screen, if you click on Change PE version, you'd get the screen shot shown below and the explanation. Use PE5 so that you get full support for UEFI/Secure boot and it'll work with W8/8.1/10.

    Dam it, I didn't know about those 3 choices!! I tried using the usb Macrium on my Windows 7 computer, and it was kinda messed up, couldn't read all the commands on the screen, or even be able to exit out after booting from the usb. This was the usb I had made for my Windows 10 Pro computer. Didn't know you had to make separate ones depending on the version of Windows installed. Guess I'm learning toooo.

    But what about the following which Macrium is showing in their knowledge base about creating rescue media

    There are different paid versions of Macrium: Home, Workstation, Server and Server plus with additional features added. You are using a free version of Macrium and that's all you get.

    Anyway, here's a short video clip (1:06 min) on how to resize a partition instead of using screenshots from my previous post.
    NOTE: In this example, I change the recovery partition from 450MB to 1000MB.

    I think the problem is with Macrium because they are showing version 6.0.753 on their page but when you download it, the version downloaded is 6.0.553. I liked video tutorial.

    Where did you download it from ? If you use this link: Macrium Reflect Free you'll get: ReflectDL.exe which is a Macrium download Agent. Double click to run and select the free version. You should get the latest.

    However, if you've already downloaded version 6.0.553 and installed. Click on Other Tasks->Check for Updates...
    you should get a patch to update to the latest.

    All this - and it would be about 4 mouse clicks and maybe 5 minutes in MiniTool Partition Wizard to resize/move partitions....

    I said way back on this tread it would have taken me maybe 10 sec's with MiniTool. Guess I was just a tad off......but the OP seems to be nervous about using MiniTool.

    I have downloaded from the same site you mentioned above. What I have found is that this exe file shows version 6.0.553 but when I opened Macrium and clicked about Macrium, the build mentioned is 753 but Windows PE 10.0 option is not there and I don,t think that it is not available in free version but some other version as Macrium have never did this type of difference earlier. If you or any other person is having Windows 10.0 PE option, please post your views.

    No, I am not nervous, just thinking to move to bigger hard disk, not because of this Sysyem Reserve Partition but because my present hard disk may be not sufficient in coming days.
