    Just tried making the resque-media with sticky ......no luck , Macrium gave me this report ;
    Open handle to physical drive: \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE8
    Read drive geometry
    Check for active FAT32 partition in removable media
    Target USB disk uses GPT scheme, cannot use this disk
    Check track zero writeable
    Track zero is writeable for selected disk
    Calculate space required for PE files
    PE File Count: 25 requiring 1024.0 MB disk space
    Determine target volume for WinPE files
    Target USB disk uses GPT scheme, cannot use this disk
    Not a supported disk type

    So, remains the question ; HOW to get it from GPT INTO MBR/FAT32 ............ !!!
    I think you will need Minitool Partition Wizard or some other third party tool to do that.MiniTool Partition Wizard | Best partition magic alternative for Windows PC and Server

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that Windows only supports one partition on a flash drive and that if there are more than one it can only see the first.

    That was true for a very long time. But from 1703 onwards Windows 10 can support and use multiple partitions on a USB.


    A little advertised change is that Windows 10 will now access multiple partitions on a standard usb flash drive.
    CU supports multiple partitions on a standard USB Flash Drive

    Here's one of mine....

    It is extremely easy to convert any disk, including USB flash drives from GPT to MBR:

    1. In elevated Command Prompt, run DISKPART
    2. Command LIST DISK lists all disks. In my case now, DISK 3 is my USB flash drive
    3. An asterisk (*) in GPT column means that it is a GPT disk
    4. I select it with command SEL DISK 3
    5. Command CLEAN wipes selected disk empty
    6. Command CONVERT MBR converts it to MBR
    7. Checking again with LIST DISK...
    8. ... I can see that it is now an MBR disk (asterisk missing in GPT column)

    Follow, step by step the tutorial #option 4, up to step 13 and you'll be good
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10

    Once done, use the USB flash drive to create the MR Rescue media!

    Yeah, but hopefully, they will never have a reason to distinguish between GPT and MBR. Or Fat 32, exFat, or NTFS.

    I out of flash drives at the moment, but would be an interesting experiment one way or the other.

    A 64 gig would probably be best but a 32 could work. You want some space for a few
    files on each partition and maybe disk management or minitool partition to see.
    I have three brand new 64 GB Omnis I picked up at Wally World for $5.98 each. However, I don't really want to mess with 'em; might mess 'em up real bad . . .

    Thanks fox , will stop trying resque with sticky , costed me too much time already , strange ; the ISO for CD works perfectly and so does the SD-card also .........no need for making third resque-media .
    Anyway , I learned a lot again of my hardware-configuration...............

    Remains one question , when removing the partition(s) on my , to MBR, converted sticky , then will it remain in MBR for the next time I use it again , or do we have to convert it to MBR again.........??

    It will remain MBR.

    As long as you don't convert it to GPT, it will always be MBR!
