    Boot Loop results after attempt to boot Macrium on USB thumb drive


    I downloaded the free Macrium Reflect and with it, on my Win 7 created a USB UEFI bootable media for Windows 10 using the WinPE v10 environment downloaded from MSoft. I started with this in order to support my wife's new Dell Inspiron Win 10 computer. I was set to create my first image. Nothing wrong with the Win 10 computer.
    I went into the 'bios' and set it up to recognize the USB drive and set it first in line. It did boot, but something went awry; Macrium looked like two overlapping windows, and there was no mouse - at least no observable cursor. Keyboard also seemed dead. I thought "hmm". I took out the thumb drive and and decided to try adding a usb mouse. However, the thing went to reboot itself and went into auto repair, which failed. I then found myself in a booting loop that I have seen others have found themselves in except: the computer refuses to boot to the Macrium USB stick, or to a AOMEIBackupperStd bootable that I had created. It goes straight to repair and fails again.

    I have no idea what went down on this machine. Obviously Macrium created something odd when I made the bootable media, but how or why I do not know. I followed the directions explicitly, and there isn't much room in the setup to mess with anyway. The bios on the Inspiron is completely new to me, and I would appreciate a reference I could go to to learn about it as well as any suggestions of where I should go with what I have in front of me.
    Thanx

    :)

    Macrium Boot Question

    Macrium Boot Question

    I use Windows 10 and a Macrium recovery program. My BIOS is set where the optical disk for CDs and DVDs are not set to recognize a CD/DVD disc as the first priority to boot from.

    What are the steps I should take to make my Macrium Rescue Disk as being first to boot from?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Boot linux on USB drive

    it might just be that your bios doesn't support it, but it should anyway.

    make sure you go into the bios and make sure "boot other device" is enabled and try seeing if the usb is listed as an hdd.. as bootable flash drives are usually picked up as usb hdd's and check if your bios detects the flash drive.

    Booting from USB on x38 Motherboard, NOT?

    Typically the USB should be listed under the hard drive boot order. Set your "Boot Device Priority" to HDD first, then set the hard drive boot order to the USB stick first.
