    Backup & Restore "Not available in a portable workstation"

    I am running a regular laptop that is not a portable workstation of any sort and yet I am unable to utilize Windows 8's hidden Backup & Restore function. I have already made the appropriate backups with Macrium but my issue is the error message itself and how it may be effecting other aspects of my Windows experience. Can someone please help me figure out how to tell the OS that I am not a "portable workstation" please?
