    Have you installed w8.1 with an image?
    What do you mean by with an Image? (no offense meant, I am just a bit confused)

    If you mean by .iso burned to a CD, yes, I did that!

    Image is another word for clone. Used by macrium reflect users

    Well No, the clone is literally the exact same thing as another hard drive with files in it (I can access these files)
    However I what if i used macrium to back up this clone and then try to apply it.

    I used Windows2go by Aoemi partitioner. I'm afraid that due to the method i used to instal windows on my External hard-drive the backup thingy might screw the new OS.

    I'll create 2 backups and try to apply the clone backup, if anything goes bad I'll just backup from the original one.

    Thanks for the tip btw

    To apply something from macrium on the OS, you need a bootable windows pre environment created via macrium.
