Important change for Advanced Acronis Media Builder starting with Windows 10 1809
if anyone wants to create an advanced recovery media using ADK be aware that the instructions in Acronis 2017 and 2018 are no longer valid.
Microsoft has decided to seperate WinPE from ADK. A reason may be that this is better for servicing, means the WinPE get changes more often than the other part of the ADK this would save install / uninstall time of future semi-annual released but that's just my guess.
However in change to Acronis instructions you need to download the ADK and WinPE
This does not change the components needed, as mentioned in Acronis.
So you still need only the "Deployment Tools" Component from ADK
and the separate WinPE download and setup. I hope Acronis will fix these instructions in a future patch

p.s. this might be worth a sticky, unless instructions are changed in ATIH.
I've seen people on the web reporting about their desperate searches for the WinPE option in the ADK :), even in businesses - for imaging purposes.
