    Hello,

    I'm a little confused on how to create a bootable CD with the Echo Workstation Win PE builder utility. What I did was use my OEM Windows XP professional CD as the source along with the Acronis Win PE plugin to make an iso successfully. The iso was burned to CD, but when I boot the CD, a bunch of drivers load at first, but then I'm prompted with a menu to install Windows XP professional. From what I read this should boot the Acronis plugin directly into RAM like the Linux rescue CD version. Is there anything I'm doing wrong here?

    Hello jbswift,

    Thank you for your interesting in Acronis True Image

    Do the following to create WinPE bootable disc with Acronis True Image:

    1. Install Acronis True Image BartPE plug-in.
    Depending on the product version, Acronis WinPE ISO Builder locates Acronis True Image BartPE plug-in using one of the following registry keys:

    - Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageWorkstation\Settings\BartPE
    - Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageServer\Settings\BartPE
    - Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEnterpriseServer\Settings\BartPE
    - Acronis True Image Echo Workstation: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEchoWorkstation\Settings\BartPE
    - Acronis True Image Echo Server for Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEchoServer\Settings\BartPE
    - Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\TrueImageEchoEnterpriseServer\Settings\BartPE

    If you move Acronis True Image BartPE plug-in to another folder after installation, change the registry key accordingly. If the above key is missing, Acronis WinPE ISO Builder will not work.

    2. Insert your WinPE distribution CD into the media drive of the computer. If you have a distribution copy on the hard disk, copy the path to it. The distribution files must be unpacked and allocated in a separate folder. Acronis does not ship WinPE distribution files. You can get it from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...6D-15F3-4284-9123-679830D629F2&displaylang=en
    3. Select Start -> Programs -> Acronis -> Acronis True Image -> Acronis WinPE ISO Builder.
    4. Specify a source folder for building WinPE ISO, i.e. the media drive with Win PE distribution or a folder with the distribution copy.
    5. Locate a folder where you want to create WinPE ISO and provide the name for the ISO file.
    6. Check your settings in the summary screen and click Proceed.
    7. Use any third-party tool that will burn ISO images to CD or DVD.
    Media based on Win PE 2.0 and including Acronis True Image requires at least 768 MB of RAM to work.

    Best regards,
