    That's so kind. Thank you. I hope I don't waste a 3rd Disc through, my bin is getting rather full

    NB: The ISO Macrium created is 257,856 kb (as shown in File Explorer)

    I have just had a look.

    To avoid wasting dvds:

    I suggest you create the rescue media iso, then add an entry using easybcd. See if the .iso boots off the hard drive. If it does, then the problem is with the burn or the optical media.

    (If you already have the rescue.iso , just add it to your current bcd using easybcd - see 3 below)

    1.Open macrium, select create boot media, click through to this bit and select "Create ISO image file" in the dropdown. Then click Finish

    2.It will ask where to save the rescue.iso. I suggest just pop it in the C:\boot folder.

    3.Then use easybcd to add the C:\boot\rescue.iso your current bcd. (It takes a few seconds to defrag the iso before adding the entry)

    4.Restart your pc and select Neosmart ISO from the boot menu. See if that boots up ok.

    To get easybcd, scroll to the bottom here and select non commercial (free) version

    If all the above do not solve, check to see if Secure Boot is ON in your BIOS, and turn OFF if it is....try again.

    Oh...just seen what you have said. I already have Macrium in the Boot menu. I selected that when I installed the software. So, I get a choice of booting into Windows or into the Rescue environment. But that won't help me if my SSD gets corrupted and the table/boot section is gone! That happened with Acronis, I had 'Unallocated space' as a C Drive and had to get back the bootable drive with my original Windows 7 disc!

    I would like a bootable DVD so if my drive gets corrupted (non bootable) Marium will sort it out. (It says 'Fix unbootable drives' so I think it would work.

    Thanks for trying. I'll wait for other ideas.

    NB PC is from 2012...no Secure Boot in Bios (also cannot boot from a USB)

    Perhaps you didn't read it.

    Craete the iso on your hard drive.

    Boot the iso off your hard drive.

    If that works, there is nothing wrong with the iso. It must therefore be a fault somewhere else- perahps the burner or the dvd.

    The standard macrium boot menu is not the iso.

    Added it as described. When I selected the new the Neosmart entry the PC rebooted and then went back to the menu to select it again (the blue screen to boot to Windows or Macrium. Failed to work!

    Seems to be fault with the iso. Maybe the bootsector.

    I suggest you copy "C:\Boot\macrium\WA10KFiles\fwfiles\efisys.bin"
    TO
    "C:\Boot\macrium\WA10KFiles\media\EFI\Microsoft\Boot"

    AND copy "C:\Boot\macrium\WA10KFiles\fwfiles\etfsboot.com"
    TO
    "C:\Boot\macrium\WA10KFiles\media\Boot"

    Then use this to create the iso ( I cba changing it to English, it is in French , so easy enough to follow)
    Windows_Demarrable.rar

    Run Lancer_x64.exe
