    Restoring system images on GPT systems


    I've just finished converting my spare Win 10 laptop from MBR to GPT using MBR2GPT in Win 10. As far as I can see on a first boot it seems to have worked ok so I'm creating a new system image in MR right now. How do you restore images in GPT when the Secure Boot feature in UEFI won't allow you to use your MR boot disk?

    :)

    Restoring System Image

    'System image' on your gpt is only the necessary partitions for the drive required by windows to work (about 500mb, 100mb & windows partitions) & installing it again - system image is only the backed up partitions. It doesn't touch any other partitions
    that's not in it when restoring it.

    Microsoft is doing away with the standard 'system image' ability in the very near future and suggestions are to use other 3rd party shareware/freeware imaging programs.
