    Thanks. I have used WAIK for creating Acronis for flash drive (for restore purpose).
    I will find an old Waik file in one of DVD disks.
    Thanks again.

    BTW, I tried to download your Waik file. There was an error (see the attachment).

    Hmm, that is strange. I just had my wife try to download the WinPE on her system and that worked perfectly. Sometimes things that work by me don't work elsewhere, but that does not seem the case here. Maybe another browser would work.

    I use mainly ie11. I will try to download tomorrow. I tried Firefox 23.0.1 just now but got the same error message.
    I do not have/use Chrome.

    You must have a little gremlin in your system. That .iso was downloaded by many people and I never saw that particular problem.

    I did not have any problem with downloading in the past.
    Upon reading your message, I tried to download this time by pushing Alt/left click on mouse.
    That initiated the downloading now.
    Your file could be newer one than mine.
    Thanks again.

    I burned the Macrium WinPE 5.2.iso to a CD and booted the computer (win 7 Pro) with the CD.
    It looks good and it is ready to restore Macrium backup.

    I will test the same WinPE CD on Win 8.1 computer.
    Thank you so much for the WinPE iso.

    With all the programs you have installed, I would be interested how big your winsxs folder is. Have a look in C:\ Windows and see what the winsxs Properties say. This is merely for my education. My guess would be around 15GBs.

    I am just about to leave for Gym and go home.
    I checked winsxs. Ctrl/Enter yielded about 13.4 gb.
    From its properties, it is about 12.4 gb.
    See the attachment.

    After seeing my winsxs, please advise me what/how I could improve based on the huge size of winsxs.
    Thank you again.

    whs,
    Because of the continuous snowing and cold temperature, I am now at home.
    I tried to boot windows 8 computer with WinPE CD.
    It booted. The screen was exactly the same as I saw on Windows 7.
    Here is one problem: mouse cursor did not show on the screen.
    WinPE must be tweeted to allow mouse cursor to show and work on Win 8 screen.
