    Macrium Rescue Media for 2 Computers on same USB


    I have two computers running Windows 10 x 64 Build 1909:

    • Desktop
    • MacBook Bootcamp

    The desktop is imaged using Macrium, with rescue media on a bootable USB thumbdrive.

    I also want to image the Windows 10 installation on the MacBook using Macrium, but would ideally like to use the same rescue USB thumbdrive.

    Is this possible? What is the best method to achieve this?

    :)

    I have Macrium Rescue media on a usb thumb drive, a dvd, and on the boot menu of my boot drive.

    Macrium has a new recent update.

    How do I update the rescue media on those 3 media that I listed?

    Macrium: Rescue Media


    a) Yes. I booted on "Sata 3 > UEFI: HL DT ...." It found my Macrium system backups xxx.mrimg I haven't yet completed booting up on it yet (to test it).

    b) This tells how to use all Macrium backup and restore procedures. I recommend this to everyone using Macrium. Following dalchina's comment 3 (post no. 4) I have printed out, on paper, part 5 of it (on restore) because Kiri (the author) recommends for safety reasons restoring from within Macrium's Rescue Media rather than from within Windows, and obviously part 5 would not be available at that time if not on paper.

    c) Another advantage of restoring from within Macrium's Rescue Media is that the confusing blue boot window does not appear and the only choice to be made is which of your Macrium backups you want to be restored.

    d: dalchina asked "4. What's a Rescue Media Disk? unsure which you mean." I mistyped. I meant Macrium's "Rescue Media" which I have on a DVD.

    e) I wrote in post 3: "5. I thought Macrium was easy to use." Yes it is. I was confused (not now I think) about what was on the my Rescue Media DVD and how to make my way through the geekery of the blue boot list.

    f) However, I have always found boot lists (in a blue background, see post 1) very unfriendly. It would be good if software companies or Microsoft made them more friendly, like having a title for a start: "Macrium Rescue Media", and in the case of the first entry mentioning UEFI and Legacy stuff, something more intelligible to help with choosing the correct option. Not many average users even know what UEFI means, and average users often do have to tackle boot lists when restoring.
