32bit RMB disc for Vista

Am using Paragon 2014 Free Backup and Restore to burn a RMB disc for a 32bit Vista system but can't uncheck the box next to USE  ADK/WAIK  in order to do so.  It tells me at the end that I need to download that ADK program from MS in order to complete the process but I do not want to do that.  Is there some easier way to do a recovery disc as I do in my 64bit systems in this one?  

I am asking this for a friend who will be doing a Windows 7 upgrade soon on his Vista system and he wants a backup of his system on a external hard drive in case something goes wrong and needs the RMB disc to access that drive.  Thanks for any help you can give me.

it does need the windows pe to create the disk, so you do need to download and install the windows pe components from WAIK

Thank you both for your answers but my friend doesn't want to download the pe components so I will tell him about going with a different backup program.
Aomei till now has never failed me and has tons of features.
I just downloaded AOMEI Backupper and what a nice program, do  like all the features it has.   This program will make it easy for him to do his backup and create/burn his bootable media.  Thank you so much for telling me about this really nice program.  Truly appreciate it as I know he will also......
