    Most convenient way is to tech the friend how to maintain their own computer.
    Teach them to be independent. It's the old story of "Give them a fish, or teach them how to fish". The OP may not be around or available next time.

    I totally agree BUT we all know somebody who clicks any link, installs programs without thinking. Sometimes you can lead a horse to water....

    Even my partner would never use it in a million years even if I taught her. I just do it for her using Teamviewer as it is less hassle than sorting issues out. Hell she would be a prime candidate for Win 10 S.

    Now there is an interesting thought - UWP versions of Macrium Reflect Free and Teamviewer?

    I assume you would be able to boot from an external usb drive on a Win 10 S pc if it can be upgraded to Pro?

    Should be on your C-Drive in your BOOT Folder. Also the PE version you made will only work on your friends computer if his drivers are the same as yours....read below.....

    If the hardware for all your computers is supported by the default Windows PE driver set, then the answer is a simple yes. You can confirm this on the Rescue Media Wizard drivers page. If all the drivers listed have the status Device support in WinPE or Compatible device support in WinPE for each of your machines then you only need one rescue media.
    If any of your machines require extra drivers, then you have three options:

    • Create one piece of rescue media for each machine.
    • Invoke the Create Rescue Media Wizard on each of your machines.
      1. Locate all the necessary drivers and progress to the Rescue Media Burnpage before canceling.
      2. Copy the contents of folder 'C:\boot\macrium\drivers' from each machine to one machine.
      3. Burn a Rescue CD on that machine.

    • Using the Rescue media wizard, create a bootable USB stick, inserting the same device on each machine in turn.

    Note: Options 2 and 3 only work if all your machines are configured to use the same version of PE with the same architecture (i.e. they are all 32-bit or all 64-bit).
    I could not find the PE either in Downloads or Program files. My friend PC is same so this rescue media will work there. But if I have to again create the rescue media then I will have to again download the PE if I am unable to find the PE already downlaoded by me on this PC.

    Best idea for you in to install Macrium Reflect on HIS computer, and make the rescue media from same computer.
    Your is 64bit and his is 32 bit ....they are NOT the same. Yours will not work on his machine.
    Mine is Win 10 64 bit and friend is Win 7 32 bit but both PC have same hardware and I have created rescue media for 32 bit with PE4.

    Well just by going to your title of this thread you wrote:
    create macrium rescue media for win 7 32 bit from win 10 64 bit pc

    Those are two different versions of Windows and 1 IS 32bit, and yours is 64bit. Not the same.
    I would install Macrium on your friends computer, then show him how to use it. Just my thoughts on this.

    I agree, my friend and even my partner don't want to be involved in theses things.

    Thanks. It means as per your opinion the rescue media created by me will not work on friends machine because of different versions and different bit.
