    Windows 10 Upgrade Begins Rolling Out in Waves

    As I said in my previous post, I have windows 8 pre-installed on a hidden partition, what will happen when I'm running windows 10 and do a factory restore from within windows 10? Does it install windows 8 from the hidden partition?

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    5. Boot up with your new HD.
