    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).

    Macrium Reflect - Backup Restore - Windows 10 Forums

    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.

    Virtual Disk Service error when creating WinPE Rescue Media


    Thanks.

    I have a suggestion. You advise restoring from a Macrium Image from within Macrium Rescue Media rather than from within Windows itself (that is, not with the normal desktop showing). It seems to me that would have to be be done without access to your tut (which is online). I have therefore printed it out on paper and filed it away. I suggest you might like to consider putting a note about that at the end of Part 5 of your tut.

    It is really very helpful to have well illustrated step-by-step tuts like this. Thanks for all your efforts.

    Macrium: Rescue Media


    Having turned to Macrium for daily backups, I have created a Rescue Media DVD. When testing to see if it would boot (as Macrium advise). I was unable to choose which of the options offered was correct. Attached is a clip of my boot menu with the DVD in its tray.

    Oddly, the image below is the same whether the DVD is in the tray or not!

    Which should I choose please for the Rescue Media?
