    Do you test the Rescue media on both systems each time you update it?

    I build separate rescue for each machine and test. That said I do not build new rescue media for each update unless the update notes recommends it.

    To sum it up, let's see if I'm doing it right.
    Two pretty different computers, a newer one (Ryzen) with UEFI and older one (AMD FX 6340) with legacy BIOS and want to keep only one Rescue USB for both.
    So, I make rescue disk with PE and update it on Ryzen system every time there's new MR version out. MR is installed on both of them, regularly updated and boot menu with RE made and updated. Both are connected by wire to same router so no WiFi required.
    So, if I'm reading correctly, you're creating WinPE Rescue Media on the Ryzen and WinRE Rescue Media on the Legacy machine. Correct?

    I'm wondering why you wouldn't use RE on the Ryzen and PE on the Legacy. In fact, why wouldn't you use RE on both of them?

    This has been and is such a great discussion! I'm learning a great deal about Macrium/Rescue Media.

    I am surprised. I had thought it would be better colours, like blue, etc - and why Tenforums administrators put the option of many many colours?? I read much better in blue, some exception is another way of call attention, mark, enphasis. Thank you very very much. I sometimes write posts in other forums, and you is sthe first to make this advice - good advice - I supp´-ose it is people who read many many on the screen, the habit, the usual. I will write in black, bbut praying... someday everyone like and read colloured phrases.
    You can criticize me, probably it is a way of helping.
    Brazilian hate criticisms, in general (and I hate this brazilian aspect of our culture) but I am not a tipycal brazilian. I like gerrman way because their rude sincerity. (I am not rude, I suppose, I am too humourous). Be quiet.
    Ah, brazilian never shows the true feelings to foreigns, always are happiest, and marketing...if someday you visit Brazil.
    Congratullation.

    Colors work quite well on a white background, but on dark backgrounds, some of 'em just do not work.

    Just as in coding, when one thing is changed, it can break something else. So it is with dark backgrounds and certain colors.

    One USB created on Ryzen system to be used on both machines. that one is PE.
    On each machine I created own RE environment for BOOT menu.
    @Caledon Ken. I check only for ability to boot and find and recognize backup file. Backup was successful each time I had to do it on both machines.

    I've created a thread on Colors on Dark Backgrounds:

    well, I see on my desktop bbackground white or light grey. It is a case of eyes. I read better in blue with these very light grey.
    I am afraid of writting using Bold black. ;-)

    If you use the default, everything works fine.

    I also create a separate rescue media for each of my machines, but I also recreate the rescue media after each new update. The reason being that MR always asks to update the boot menu after each update. My understanding is that if it is good for the boot menu, it ought to be the same for the rescue media.

    With regard to PE Vs RE, I have never had any problem with this aspect while using MR. It is as if by default MR chooses the right environment for you depending on your system hardware configuration.

    Interesting read here 7.2 choices: WinPE or WinRE? .

    Tried out Win PE and it then defaulted in advanced settings. The only way I could get it back to default to RE was to uninstall all components and reinstall. Couldn't find any other way.

    Wow, strange!

    So, I had switched from PE to RE, because the PE was still on 1709 and my main computer was on 1809, and the PE wasn't updating...and also I wanted wifi support. I think I'll leave it there.....

    I create the Macrium boot section on the OS drive of each system, in RE. Then I create an ISO of the rescue media in RE for each machine and save that on USB external media. I don't bother making any bootable flash drives. I figure, if I end up needing a flash drive to boot one of the machines, I'll connect the external drive to another machine and create it using the appropriate ISO file and RUFUS. I also keep several versions of the recovery ISOs, just in case.
