    You could try. Let me guess: despite advice to the contrary, you DON'T have bootable Macrium Rescue media???

    I dont, but I sure can create it. If I put in on an USB drive how much space does it need?

    Only a few hundred MB. However, it's most important you prep the USB stick properly - it needs to be formatted FAT32 and marked Active before creating.

    Please do this first to prep the USB stick: https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/di...for+Windows+PE

    Then follow this procedure to create the bootable MR environment on the stick:

    Yes, Use the Windows installation disk to manually create a new BCD as follows:
    Boot up with Windows Installation USB. On the first screen, press SHIFT+F10 to display the Command Prompt then type:
    1. echo list disk | diskpart ===> You will get a list of volume, look for the drive letter of the partition size 185GB, take a note
    2. mountvol U: /s
    3. bcdboot DriveLetter:\Windows /s U: /f UEFI ====> Replace the DriveLetter: with the drive letter in step 1.
    4. Reboot the PC
