    Macrium USB


    Hello everyone,

    I created a Macrium USB. See screenshot.

    Is this the right thing?

    What do I do with it?

    My goal is to create a backup. So if upgrade Windows 10, and don't like it, I can put it back the way it was.

    Hi Don.
    You need 2 things: 1. the Macrium boot flash drive and 2. the backup itself.
    If you ever need to restore a backup, you boot the system to the flash drive, and that's how you access the backup program for a restore.
    Have a read of this tut:

    "...2. the backup itself..." simrick obviously means putting those backups on external media, for example, I use usb external platter-driven hard-drives.

    What do I do with it?

    I know just restart the computer. But shouldn't I change the boot order in the bios.

    How do this? I have a Dell laptop.

    When you reboot, as you see the screen come on, start pressing F8 a few times before Windows starts to load. This will bring up the boot device menu. You will see the USB drive in the list. Select it and press enter.

    Great!
    Now, have you read the tutorial?

    You'll need to lookup how to get the "one-time boot menu" in the Dell you have. I can't look it up, as your system specs say Toshiba. It could be F2, F12, Del, Esc - any number of keys at boot can do it, depending on the system.

    Thank you access denied and thinrick for your replies

    Thinrick or anyone,

    When thinrick says, "Great!" does he/you mean the Macreum USB screenshot looks correct?

    The reason I'm taking so long is because I'm afraid it won't reboot after I finish.
    I ran System Restore (Without making any changes to the system).

    I went through all motions and the end booted ok.

    So I should try it.

    If the computer doesn't boot after running though the Macreum USB boot.

    I could always set the boot order (in the BIOS) back to drive C: and remove the Macreum USB.

    It should be ok.

    won't it?

    Yes, he means it looks correct. I was worried too the first time I did a restore of a working system to test it. Everything went smooth. If the backup is good and the USB boots fine, the Macrium program also works fine from there..... once you finish whatever you are restoring, just click the red power button to reboot. You will be fine.

    Also with macrium you have the option to add macrium to boot menu
    Setting is in same menu as you selected to create media..
    But always keep a bootable copy of macrium on USB, just in case your PC will not boot

    Thank you Kyhi,
    For your response,

    I thought that was what I'm making here with the Macreum USB.

    I now see Win14393PE_x86 ISO v170116,
    Win14393PE_x64 ISO v170116,

    Are you saying I should create one of these USBs and test it before messing with the Macreum USB?

    I read somewhere that the 32bit will work just as well on a 64bit computer.

    I have a 64bit computer.

    Which one should I use?
