    The link doesn´t work.

    Partition Wizard is good and reliable. But I have had problems with the Linux boot disk. In some computers the mouse cursor is uncontrollable, and it doesn´t support Secure Boot on UEFI Systems. It´s still necessary to use it in legacy mode.

    Marketing gimmick, so they just lure more people to receive their spam? I never received any email with key or download link.

    And I tried two different email addresses I have, so the problem is not at the email providers.

    I had no problems, received an e-mail with the key. You could e-mail them, support@minitool.ca. In the past, they have answered my (technical) questions promptly.

    They contacted me and asked me if I had received my code and download link.
    I replied and told them that I had not and just received it.

    Received the same email notification. After responding back, I received a reply with a link to the download site as well as the license code. All is well, and I'm glad the company took care of this in such an up-front and professional manner. -SA Jack

    Ditto, I got my download link and key few hours after sending email.
    By the way, Is there any possibility to make a WinPE iso in order to use the program on a blank HDD ?

    There is a Linux boot medium available. Recent versions don´t work well for me. In my Windows 7 computer the mouse movement is uncontrollable. In UEFI computers, it must be used in legacy mode.

    Thanks for info Robin A.
    I have a machine with a RAID 0. Linux based boot media never worked on it.
    I will keep my AOMEI Partition assistant 5.5 (From another giveaway) who let me create a fully working WinPE ISO.

    Out of curiosity, I tried to create a WinPE from AOEMI PA Standard 5.5 in a Windows 7 x64 computer. The process failed.

    I launched the wizard from the main program, selected to create an ISO file. The process is fast, uses WinRE. I burned a boot CD with ImgBurn. The disk booted, but to the Windows 7 x64 repair disc. Options available were repair or install Windows. No Partition Assistant in sight.

    Hi Robin A
    Sorry for late response.
    I have the Pro version of AOMEI partition assistant 5.5. Do not think that make a difference.
    I had no problem to create a WinPE 3.1 iso file using the wizard. Under Windows 7 x64 I have WAIK installed.
    I boot the ISO using Xboot a small utility where I have a bunch of others utilities such as Paragon, ShadowProtect 5.13, Macrium reflect .. etc ..
