    Default Can't create WinPE in Aomei Backupper

    I've installed Aomei Backupper, and it works fine.
    I've installed WAIK.
    When I try to use Backupper to create WinPE bootable media, it stops at exactly 50% each time. This happens with both writing a CD/DVD and writing an ISO.
    This system is Windows 8 x64, fully updated.

    Since this forum appears to be Aomei's tech support page (the support page on the Aomei website is not interactive), I'm posting here.
    Thanks for your help!

    Hello,

    Sorry I did not notice this post until today. I am sorry.

    To solve this problem, you could directly download AOMEI Backupper iso file "based on winpe" on this skydrive, link: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resi...FJXZja16uvTQMg and then use your burning tool burn it to CD. You may need to register a hotmail and then you can download the software, sorry for the inconvenience.

    About the problem you encountered, for windows 8 you should install windows ADK, here is the link Download Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows . To create bootable CD is based on system environment, we need to read the log of this program so that we could analyze what the problem is. Would you please send us the log of this program to support@aomeitech.com. The log located in the installation directory of this program.
    We will try our best to improve the quality of this program. If you have any other problem please do not hesitate to let us know.

    Best Regards,
    AOMEI Support Team

    "Windows Automated Installation Kit" - it's the tool used to create WinPE bootable media.
    Aomei recommends that for creating it's bootable media.

    You took ten whole HOURS to reply. Absolutely shocking! (Tongue in cheek, I hope you understand.)

    I downloaded the ISO file, and it works beautifully. Thank-you very much.

    As for the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows, I misunderstood your message. I took this to be the Windows 8 replacement to WAIK, rather than merely a supplement. Therefore I uninstalled WAIK, before going to the ADK site and realizing my mistake. Oops. Since WAIK takes up a huge amount of space on the hard drive, I'd just as soon not bother re-installing it, just for the sake of testing software. So I won't be sending you feedback on that.

    Thanks again for your marvelous help!

    Bruce.

    P.S. If this forum really is Aomei's tech support, then you really ought to put a link to this on the Aomei's main website. Or maybe you want to keep this a secret?
