    I tried HDM 14 in a Dell Windows 8.1 laptop, working from a WinPE 5.0. The operation is very slow.

    It isn´t slow to create images, but when navigating the interfaces, and specially when a function is launched from the modern UI.

    I created the WinPE ISO with Boot Media Builder and WADK for Windows 8.1, then "burned" the USB keys with Rufus.

    When I use the same WinPE in an older computer (that has Windows 7 installed), HDM 14 works much faster.

    Strange. This WINPE 5.0 (based on 8.1) with HDM 14, is slow in a recent computer that works well with 8.1, and fast in an older one which uses 7.

    Ditto. The windows PE 5.0 x46 boot media runs a lot slower as compared to the previous version on the same computer running windows 8.1 x64. It took a lot longer to boot into the metro style interface. when launching a task, it also take a lot longer to do the task, for example takes much longer analyzing partition/disk etc, before the actual task starts. Feels not as smooth as in the previous version.
