    trying to install win10

    You will get that message if you try to run the winpe files from within windows.

    Make sure you are running
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\AOMEI Backupper\Backupper.exe"

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\AOMEI Backupper\Winpe64\Backupper.exe"

    I solved this by reinstalling the program.

    It starts normally now when i open it. But, i still get the same message if i click on the backup (adi) file. I also see that the icon on the backup file has changed. What gives?

    Do another backup and please let us know if things return to normal :)
    Icon(s) can change due to some temporary hiccup in the icon cache, I only know a little about Windows 7.
    I just recently fixed my errant icons with a utility from somewhere on The 'Net.

    I will try it and get back with the results.

    I got the icon back again by doing a new backup.

    But im now getting an error message saying cannot find amldr in all drives if i try to restore my computer. I havent seen this message before. Any way to fix it?

    So the solution was actually pretty simple. Basically what i did was that i made a disc backup instead of a system backup, that way i was able to recover my computer successfully.

    It wouldnt work regardless of how many times i tried to recover it with a system backup, but it miraciously worked the first time i did a disc backup instead.

    I think the reason was, that windows decided to split my ssd into several partitions after updating my computer, without notifying me first. This may have been causing aomei to get confused, because it doesnt know what its supposed to recover with so many different partitions.

    So its probably best to get rid of any duplicate partitons before doing a backup. It also seems like disc backup is a more reliable solution, so i will be using it instead of system backup.

    Im getting a message that says failed to assign drive letter if i try to recover my desktop. I only got one drive with a letter, and thats my c drive. I have tried following this guide on aomeis website, but it didnt help. I tested it on my laptop just in case, and it works.
