Macrium Update

  1. #11


    I uninstalled Macrium and everything that was listed to uninstall (see screenshot). Rebooted the PC and then did a fresh install. I created the WinPE 5.0 rescue media, which included downloading the WinPE 5.0, and then created the rescue media.

    I previously noted, that the backup system had 5.2.6526 version and I made the WinPE 5.0 rescue media with NO errors. I then did the upgrade to 5.3.7086, rebooted the PC and then tried the WinPE 5.0 rescue media and got the exact same errors as I got with my other PC.

    I could agree on a problem with one system, but two separate systems, with different hardware, did the EXACT same thing with this new version. The only common thing is both have Win 8.1.1 Pro 64 bit with all updates. However, the dual boot system also has the same identical problem in Windows 7 64 bit. The Dual Boot system has SSD's, the backup system has conventional hard drives, and that eliminates a drive issue since it did it with both SSD's and conventional hard drives.

    As previously noted (a couple of times), I have successfully created new WinPE 5.0 rescue media on the dual boot system with Win 7 and Win 8.1.1 and the backup system with Win 8.1.1.

    Just for the record my primary system is listed in my system specs, which is a Gigabyte GAZ77X UD5H motherboard, i7 3770 CPU and 16 GB Ram. The second system has an ASUS Z77 motherboard, i5 3550 CPU and 8 GB RAM.

    OK, Just try to sort out what's going on here. Have you installed any new software recently that could have caused the conflict ?

    No. Again, as I noted the one system had an older version. I made a WinPE 5.0 rescue media with NO problems first. Then installed the new version and got the exact same problem I have with my primary dual boot system.

    Sounds like a bug. Seems they have a lot of those, new version every 5 mins with a whole list of fixes.

    Can't say I noticed most of them, and at least they keep trying to fix them.


    It does seem to have the occasional but persistent issue setting the drive letter correctly. I have had it a few times and there have been reports elsewhere recently. Think I saw one today or maybe yesterday either here or on SF.

    Do any of you have Emsisoft Anti-Malware installed? There seems to be a problem with it and Macrium Reflect Version 5.3.7086 from what I've read in other forums.

    I have the Windows Defender in Win 8.1.1 and Microsoft Security Essentials in Win 7.

    Here's a clue to potential problem with the WinPE creation. There was a change in the creation app.

    From the release notes:
    What's new? 5.3.7086:

    • Imaging in Windows PE now will skip bad sectors.
      Bad sectors will now be automatically skipped when creating disk images in the Windows PE rescue environment. The image will complete without failure.


    EDIT/Added: I notice in the release notes the WinPE creation was "fixed" for Windows XP. Having worked as a Programmer (at NASA) I know that fixing something at one spot can cause problems elsewhere.

    Thanks, I'll have to try it. I haven't heard back from Macrium Tech Support, yet today.
