    Yes it lets me get into the files on my external hard drive on the left side pannel. I clicked on windowsImagebackup however it opens it and it shows the files but it does not let me just click on it to get it into setup it just keeps opening files. Within the 32 folder it just has all these dll files.

    Ok, click on the Toshiba drive on the left side. A window will pop up showing you all the files and folders click on your drive. Click on the WindowsImageBackup folder. Don't double click on it. Can you click Next or ok? If that don't work click on your Toshiba drive can you just click Next or OK?

    No it will not let me at all. Here is a picture I get. When I click on the one that says, Install a driver, it wont let me do what you ask me to do. It seems to want a driver.

    Are they the two options you get when you click on Advanced? I don't have a system image backup to tell you exactly what to do. I have to go out tonight but tomorrow I can create one and then try to restore it. Maybe I can help you better after that.

    Thanks,

    I made a System Image Backup of my hard drive this morning. Then I booted the computer with the Windows 10 install media (USB flash drive). I went to Advance Options, then System Image Recovery. Look at post #101. You posted a picture of the screen it took me to. All you have to do is click on "TOSHIBA EXT", it turned blue, and I was able to click Next at the bottom of the window. Just click on it once. Don't double click. If it doesn't turn blue the first time, try clicking on it again, but don't double click. Give it a try.

    Don't click on the Advanced button. That does nothing for us. The first option is for people who have a network and store their image on it. You would use the second option if your portable hard drive needed a driver for Windows to recognize it. Windows does not need a driver to see you Toshiba drive.

    Yes that is what I did originally and it wont work. That is what I tried to do and it would not work it needed drivers ect. That is why I showed the pictures that fallowed because it wanted the drivers. I give up. Thanks so much for trying to work with me. I so appreciate your help.

    Ok, sorry it didn't work out. I still believe you're not booting from the USB. If you were, the first screen you will see is where you pick your language and keyboard layout. If that is not the first screen you see, then your not booting from the USB.

    If that is not what you see, and you have some free time on your hands, try using Google to learn how to boot from the USB. Once you learn how, try the System Image Restore again and I think it will work.

    Good luck.
