    Is this the correct 'rescue CD' image file?


    So I reinstalled Windows 10 on my SSD. And just now I created an 'image' backup of my current SSD Windows 10. So it's like a 'right at the beginning' image type...if that makes sense.

    But before I did that, I opened Macrium and it asked me to make a 'rescue CD'. Now I did this with my internal HD (before I bought the SSD), but I presume as this was a new install of Windows 10 on a new SSD I had to do it again. But this way felt somewhat different.

    I dont remember having this icon (iso on desktop) as the iso image to backup. Also, it creates a things on the side of File explorer, under my SSD C drive. Why has it done this? I right click it and hit 'eject' and it goes away, even though its not a CD?

    And the 'iso' on the Desktop, I rightclick and select 'Burn disc image' and that has burned it to my CD I inserted...but I didnt do this method last time either. I had to drag the files onto the CD and click burn.

    Is everything here ok and normal?

  2. Unable to upgrade to Windows 10, Error message: A system image created using UEFI cannot be restored on a computer using legacy BIOS.

    Rishad- Thank you for your reply but I will say it's a little beyond my knowledge base.



    I have been able to upgrade these computers to Win 10 but I am confused on just how to back them up. If I understand correctly- if I have a serious system failure - a rescue UBS (or CD) would be advantageous to get to the bios and apply any image I have
    created. All four computers were shipped running in UEFI and rely on their internal recovery programs to reach a recovery partition. This is not the case if I use Marcium Reflect or the Windows image maker. Each of these backups require a recovery media
    to access the saved image. If the statement ""A system image that was created on a computer using
    UEFI cannot be restored on a computer using legacy BIOS. It can only be restored on a computer using UEFI." is true, how should I make the media and images ?

    1) Change the bios to legacy and turn off secure boot before making the rescue usb/cd and image.

    Leave the systems in the legacy mode so the rescue media can be seen in case of disaster ?

    2) Make the rescue usb/cd and image in UEFI mode and leave the machine running in this mode.

    And hope I can get to the bios to make the change to legacy so the media can be seen.

    Very sorry to be so dense

    Everything looks ok and is normal.
    1. MF just saved the Rescue.iso to your desktop.
    2. When an .iso is mounted it shows in File Explorer as DVD-Drive, it's actually a Virtual DVD-ROM Drive.
    3. It will also be listed in Device Manager (Show Hidden Devices) > DVD/CD-ROM Drives > Microsoft Virtual DVD-ROM.

    Note: Every time you mount/eject an .iso it creates a new Microsoft Virtual DVD-ROM in Device Manager, so you can end up with a lot of Microsoft Virtual DVD-ROM. You can right click on the Light Grey ones and uninstall if you like, it'll get recreated next time you mount an .iso.

    Ah yes there were 2 greyed out in Device Manager. I just right clicked and uninstalled one, and kept the other.
    Is there a need to keep them there? I have 1 but shall I also 'uninstal device' with the other one?

    Also, do I need to keep my Macrium key? I was given a 28 digit code but didnt use it when installing Macrium
