Hmmm, odd.  Just now I went ahead and uninstalled that 5.1.5603 version to reinstall it so that I would get prompted again to update to that version 6.  This time I didn't get prompted.  Oh well.  I guess I'll just go with that 5.1.5603 version.

You could also try version 7 of Macrium Reflect and change the PE version to 3.1 or 4 as shown in post 12.

It's up to you if you still want to play around.

Glad we got it sorted out though.

That's certainly an option to play around with, 123Runner.  There IS though a giant Pterodactyl in the oinment, at least with wanting to just up and trying it right here and now.  As I alluded to, I have Dial Up Internet.  So, for example, the pe10_1709x86 PE Windows that I have right now ... that zip file is 330 MB in size.  So likewise, wanting to try and download another different PE Windows version, that would be a HUGE No Go for my Dial Up.  When I downloaded my current PE Windows zip file and the 91.6 MB Macrium Reflect Free 7.2.4063 setup file, I did that on my sister's High Speed Internet onto my flash drive.

 

In contrast, the Macrium Reflect Free 5.1.5603 setup file that I downloaded yesterday with my Dial Up was only 32.2 MB and that Linux Rescue Media data ... I don't know what size that was, but it was a very quick, very tolerable write onto a DVD.  I think that Linux Rescue Media data download was 5 minutes tops if that.

 

So because of my Dial Up, it looks like the Linux route is what I have to go with for now.  I only periodically go over to my sister's house or to my brother's house to use their High Speed.

Not a problem to stay with what you found to work. I forgot you are on dialup.
