Building Bart PE with Acronis Plug-in from Windows distribution

  1. Get the Bart PE builder.
  2. Install Bootable Media Builder from the Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 setup file.
  3. Change the current folder to the folder where the Acronis Plug-in for WinPE is installed—by default: C:\Program Files\Acronis\Bootable Components\WinPE.

    If the plug-in is installed in a folder other than the default folder, change the path accordingly (check the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Acronis\Bootable Components\Settings\WinPE for the plug-in location).

  4. Unpack the file to the current folder.
  5. Run the following command:


  6. Copy the contents of the current folder—by default: C:\Program Files\Acronis\Bootable Components\WinPE—to the %BartPE folder%\plugins\Acronis.
  7. Insert your Windows distribution CD if you do not have a copy of Windows installation files on the HDD.
  8. Start the Bart PE builder.
  9. Specify the path to the Windows installation files or Windows distribution CD.
  10. Click Plugins and check whether the Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 plug-in is enabled. Enable if disabled.
  11. Specify the output folder and the full path to the resulting ISO file including the file name or the media to create.
  12. Build the Bart PE.
  13. Burn the ISO to CD or DVD (if this has not been done yet) or copy to a flash drive.

Once the machine boots into the Bart PE and you configure the network connection, select Go -> System -> Storage -> Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 to start.
