    Macrium Question


    When you do a disk image in Macruim Reflect, do you have to put the image back on the original hard drive? I ask because it says saving partition. If you install a new hard drive will it make that partition on the new drive? It's confusing to me.

    If you have more than one partition and want to restore onto a new drive I would use the total disk backup rather than backing up a single partition. My impression is you install an unformatted bare HD and boot the CD or USB Macrium Rescue to restore the image onto it. At least if the backed up drive has one or more OS installed.

    If you search Macrium there are video tutorials and FAQs. Also searching the forums can dispel a lot of confusion. If you have a paid version of Macrium you can post on the forums. If not I believe you can still search them.

    Thanks Miles, I have the free version. I have been using Aomei. I think I like that better. The part about saving the partition was what was throwing me.

    I've used 3 imaging programs so far. I haven't tried Aomei yet.

    You can get a full featured 8.1 pe if you use this:

    Microsoft services

    Unzip it, and run as admin on the .cmd file.

    That's 64-bit, is there a 32-bit version?

    Not yet, 64 bit only so far.

    May do 32 when I have the time, it is complicated to do.

    What build are you running?

    You can check by using dism to query the winre.wim

    DISM.EXE /get-wiminfo /english /wimfile:<path_to-winre.wim> /index:1

    Thanks SIW2, I've downloaded and made a recovery DVD. From what I understand, This is for a Trashed Windows system that won't start. This doesn't answer my original question, do you have to use the original hard drive to restore this image? Will it make this partition on a different hard drive?
