Macrium Reflect Win PE 4 screen resolution

  1. #11


    I just installed Macrium (four PC license version) and created the WinPE rescue discs. I notice it profiles the hardware when creating it. I made separate WinPE/Macrium rescue discs, for my dual boot Win7/Win 8 system and a separate rescue disc for a second PC with different hardware. From what I remember the WinPE for the Win 7 system was V3 and the WinPE for the Win 8 systems was V4.

    One may work for every PC/OS, I haven't tried that yet but will in the future just to see.

    I got the batch working ok , not as advanced as the handmade. but it does the job:


    Click image for larger version

    It looks for winre.wim copies it and renames to boot%arch%.wim

    You can save it the trouble by copying winre.wim into the same place and renaming it first.

    Well, I got your PE disk made. Got your menu, was able to get into Aomei but got this error

    4140″ error and complaining that “the backup driver works improperly”.

    Then, I tried Macrium just for fun and the screen resolution issue is still a problem. This is a 23" Acer all in one computer that runs natively at 1920x1080. I'm sure this is more of the issue than anything else.

    Still sucks though, lost the entire work day to this exercise.

    Got a good idea what the Aomei error is . Should be fixable.

    Not sure about the macrium.

    I don't have any trouble resizing the windows.

    I'm trying your edits

    I can resize the main Macrium window. But when I go into the Image disk window, that one I cannot resize and I cannot see the entire thing.

    I've rebuilt the PE, and I'm booting it now. wish me luck. Perhaps I will capture a quick video and post it showing what is happening with my non resizable windows. It's very frustrating. Damn Acer all in ones.

    Exact same issue in Aomei backupper
    Information Code 4140 The backup driver works improperly.

    It will backup 3 of my 4 partitions, just not the C drive. So, I'm pretty sure the required executables and everything are there.

    I tried a backup job with just the C drive, and it's a no go.

    That's odd.

    See what you mean about macrium. I can resize it larger - but there is a minmum - proabably to do with the way it scales the partitions in the window.

    It's not causing a prob with my screen tho.

    I can make it smaller by starting macrium - then setting a higher resolution.

    In my hand built pe4 :
