Seems promising the WinPE CD ability to backup/restore.
Also the network target folder.
I'll see if I can manage to boot the iso from a multi-iso boot USB drive I have (http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/).

@ Tech: Have you created a WinPE rescue CD? Which operating system was the pc running?

Just to re-cap for you Speedy:

1. Download WAIK 3.0 from here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=5753

2. Mount the WAIK iso file(or burn it to a DVD whatever you prefer) and run the install(install MSXML and .NET Framework if you don't have them already) with selecting Windows AIK Setup and proceed with the install.

3. Now follow the instructions on how to proceed in EaseUS Todo: http://www.todo-backup.com/products/features/winpe-bootable-disk.htm

And Speedy...

Can I use Windows 7 AIK to build an EaseUS Todo Backup Free WinPE rescue CD/DVD in Windows XP?

Q: I have downloaded the Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows7 from the following link. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=696DD665-9F76-4177-A811-39C26D3B3B34&displaylang=en
Can I use it to build an EaseUS Todo Backup Free Windows PE rescue CD/DVD in Windows XP?
A:Yes, you can use the Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) to create WinPE rescue CD/DVD of EaseUS Todo Backup Free in Windows XP without problem. Because Microsoft plans to end to support for Windows XP, so it does not label Windows XP in the download page. Please refer to How to create the bootable disc.

I created a WinPE rescue cd. Should I up an ISO image of it? If so, how do I do that? :-)

Not sure if sharing WinPE rescue disks is legal, infact i am pretty certain it is not.

Never thought of the legal aspect!  :o

The WinPE rescue cd was created on a Windows 7 machine.

Oh ok i thought you created that rescue disk on your XP machine, i don't have XP over here to try it(desktop is on 7 and so is my netbook). But if that FAQ page on EaseUS page is correct, WAIK 3.0 can be installed on XP. I am also googling that to confirm it and every link i come across appears to confirm that it indeed can be installed on XP. So no need to use a Win Vista/7 PC to create that WinPE rescue disk.  :)

The link in an earlier post was for a legacy version of Win AIK. It can be installed on XP.

The question is if a WinPE rescue disk can be created with the legacy version of AIK.

Why would you want to when WAIK 3.0 apparently can be installed on XP ? I posted that link BEFORE i found out that WAIK 3.0 also installs on XP...

Would it be a good idea to install software which Micro$oft specifically says is not supported?

And where do they specifically state that it does not run on XP ?

And again from EaseUS FAQ page:

Why don't you try installing WAIK 3.0 on your XP machine and try it for yourself ?
