Acronis
  • Simple—This is the easiest option. Acronis True Image will choose the optimal media type for your computer. If you use Windows 7 or a later version, WinRE-based media will be created. For users of Windows XP, Acronis True Image checks if WAIK or WADK is installed on your computer, and if so, then WinPE-based media will be created. Otherwise, Acronis Media Builder will create a Linux-based media.
  • Advanced—This option allows you to choose a media type, therefore you can create the rescue media not only for your computer, but for a computer running a different Windows version.
If you select Simple media creation

First, select the bootable media type: WinPE-based media or Linux-based media

If you select WinPE-based media

1. Select architecture and toolkit:

  • Select an architecture type of the media—32-bit or 64-bit. Note that 32-bit rescue media can work only on 32-bit computers, and 64-bit media is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit computers.
  • Select a toolkit that you want to be used for the rescue media creation. If you choose WAIK or WADK and you do not have the selected kit installed on your computer, then you first need to download it from the Microsoft website, and then install the required components—Deployment Tools and Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE). If you already have WinPE files on your computer and they are stored in a non-default folder, then just specify their location and the Acronis plug-in will be added to the existing WinPE image.
