    That's only logical. Macrium can't detect virtual or RAM disk based installations.

    When you use Macrium Reflect to fix Windows boot issues, it looks for installed Windows operating systems on internal hard disks. It simply can't find any Windows installations on virtual hard disks or RAM disks.

    In my case, I have seven boot menu entries: EN-GB English Windows 10 as my main OS with Hypervisor enabled to be able to run Hyper-V virtual machines installed on physical SSD, same OS copied to another boot menu entry with Hypervisor disabled to be able to run VMware and VirtualBox virtual machines, then the same OS in Finnish, Swedish and German installed on native boot virtual hard disks, my personal, custom recovery image which I update after every Insider build upgrade, and Macrium recovery environment:

    (Boot menu only shows six entries, to boot to 7th, Macrium, I need first click See more operating systems.)

    Only two of these are physical installations, the main OS with Hypervisor, and the same without Hypervisor. However, when Macrium checks installed operating systems to fix boot issues, it cannot detect the No Hypervisor boot menu entry because, in fact, it is the same than main OS, just with other settings. It can also not detect my Finnish, Swedish and German Windows 10, because they are installed on virtual hard disks. And, finally, it can't detect my custom recovery boot and Macrium boot menu entries.

    If I need to fix Windows boot menu issues, only my main OS will be found, and after booting to it, I must recreate entries for all operating systems installed on virtual hard disks, recovery partition, and Macrium.

    This is just how it works.
    Tip   Tip
    To get screenshots or capture video of Windows Setup, boot menu, OOBE and so on, launch your Macrium Reflect image in Macrium viBoot. Screenshots in this post are from a Reflect image my system automatically creates every night, run as a virtual machine.

    Thanks for this Kari— very useful and exactly what I thought—have to recreate each time I fix menu.

    I don't have an update on my end yet?

    What version are you on. 7.2.4473 is latest. Don't think there is anything newer.

    The flipside to that is you get to see issues with new MR releases in one place (which I prefer as a M.O).
    I'd agree that issues that aren't release based should be separate threads, but then many less experienced posters don't know that until at least a partial diagnosis is undertaken here by the more experienced...

    Maybe a poll on a per board basis could be displayed as a pinned post at the top, reflecting that boards general wishes around the breadth of the 'problems allowed' remit?

    Are you suggesting that member posters vote on what content is allowed on any given thread?

    No, just the tutorial/update boards, as that seems to be the main area of contention. (I sometimes get a bit put off by the number and length of the detours as well, but not always...:))

    Only one I'm aware of that has Forum Posting Guidelines to it is the BSOD section, and for good reason. It would be very difficult to try and apply Robert's Rules of Order to all the possible candidate threads. Tutorials, when a post gets OT or Support in nature, it is generally moved to an appropriate thread, or the poster is advised to start a new thread.

    This whole discussion is technically in violation of just what you're trying to avoid, so this will be my last word on it.

    This thread's intent was originally to post only updates to Macrium Reflect. Problems with it can be posted in say the General Support section or in this section, in a NEW thread. Every time I see a post here, I think that there is a new MR Update.
