    Default Macrium again, restore CD

    Hi,

    I hope this is appropriate post for here, that someone uses Macrium.

    Without trying to be offensive, If anyone has actually tried to test the backup file with the macrium rescu CD, please help me as I am a bit old & thick in the grey matter.

    A. I get confused of the Macrium Help instruction, see foto #3 below, 'Create Rescue CD' or 'Create a bootable rescue CD', can't do both so why show them?

    B. I made a Vista C:\ backup as #4 below.

    Then tried to create the Rescu CD using the BartPE option but:-

    Instead of geting what the Macrium Help file shows #2 which has the "Start the Reflect Restore Wizard" option, I get this #1 below, which does not have that option, thus making the boot CD useles. ............nick

    PS. I could not insert screenshots here relating to Nos mentioned.

    1/ Do you have a full version, a trial version or a free version ?
    2/ Can you reach the menu where it asks for either Linux, Bart or WinPE.
    3/ Chose Linux and try to burn directly the Rescue CD on a blank CDRW

    Rescue CD and Bootable Rescue CD are the same thing. Use the Linux option, the Bart does not seem to work with the free Macrium.
    I have recovered many times - some for testing, some because I needed to. It works great. You set your systems boot sequence to CD, throw the rescue CD in and off you go.
    I suggest you try that on a little test partition. Create a small partition (e.g. 3GB) by shrinking C and move some data in. Then excercise the wole backup/restore cycle on that (at least if something goes wrong, you do not mess up your system). Once you are done, delete the test partition and give the space back to C.

    Default Barte/Macrium fails to restore XP

    Unfortunately the restore failed with error :- GRUB Stage 1.5, & tried it with keepold, use same & do not change MBR, nothing helps.

    the uncompressed Reflect file is 62gb & the directory is 160gb.

    any ideas ? ..........nick

    Make a Linux recovery disk. That has always worked for me.

    WHS,

    Linux one did not do it either, still get : "GRUB Loading Stage1.5." & just hungs there.

    So much for backups really, if you lost your HD completely & could not load it all on a new one. .............nick

    That is really strange. I don't know what to say. Maybe you want to ask the question at the Macrium Forum. They may have an answer.
