    Custom Recovery Partition


    Macrium Reflect has an option to install a boot menu item for itself. It sets up dual booting, normal Windows 10 and the Macrium Reflect Free rescue environment. You should be able to boot into Macrium Reflect using the boot menu item, then recover just the OS partition from an image saved on a custom recovery partition. I don't know if it would be possible to automate that process with scripting or command line commands, though.

    Macrium Reflect - Create a Rescue Partition  

    Done.


    Did one over a year ago: Factory recovery - Create a Custom Recovery Partition


    Let's make something clear. I never knew what Kyhi's rescue disk is before Martin mentioned it. I have seen the thread, but nothing in original post even remotely hints about it using similar script . Also, nothing in that original post hints about creating a rescue partition on internal HDD. Furthermore, it is not in Tutorials, not a tutorial. It's a sticky thread.

    Usually, when making a tutorial, I search the Tutorials section to see that the tut I have on my mind does not exist. If not, I then write one. Last summer, writing the custom recovery partition tut, I could not find anything similar in Tutorials. There was no Custom Recovery Partition or Macrium Rescue Partition tutorials, so I wrote them, they both use the same script I have used from first days of Windows 10:

    Checking the dates when Kyhi's rescue sticky and my Factory Recovery tutorial have been created:

    Which To Use? Custom Recovery Partition or Macrium Reflect?

    HP Recovery Partition - Software needed?


    You need either the Windows 10 install files or the Macrium Reflect Free rescue drive files to provide the boot files to make your recovery partition bootable. Now, you should be able to restart the computer into UEFI firmware:
    UEFI Firmware Settings - Boot to from inside Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    The recovery partition should show up in the boot list. You still cannot recover the image created with Macrium Reflect, though, because that requires Macrium Reflect available when booting from the recovery partition. To get that, I would suggest you replace the Windows 10 Install boot.wim file in the \Sources folder with the boot.wim file from Kyhi's Recovery Tools.
