    macrium reflect forum's rescue media has a few threads about this very problem; Over there, DSperber, in a couple of threads, suggested doing the WIM Win10PE rather than Win7PE. I'm testing that process at home, will try a restore this weekend.

    I copied the Macrium image file to my C drive just to eliminate connections issues (Oc000000f indicates some type of connection problem). The same error occurred. At this point, I am thinking it's a problem with Macrium.

    Roland,

    I am using WIM WIN10PE. But thanks for the suggestion.

    So you are using Windows 10 PE. Thanks.

    What media are you booting Macrium from and when was this media created.

    I just click on my desktop icon for Macrium. I am not using a rescue disk to boot. Windows 10 seems to be running just fine and was successfully updated to the current maintenance level yesterday. I successfully did a Windows "System Image" backup and a subsequent restore using the same hard drive as with Macrium. So it doesn't appear to be the hard drive or Windows.

    Thanks ...

    TexasBandit, temporarily it is a Macrium Reflect glitch. I overcame it by making WIM Win10PE DVD [CD will work also] and USB flash drive boots, along with the not-required step of putting WIM Win10PE into Windows boot menu.
    While I cannot define the problem, rescue media is the solution. Again, if you want confirmation, go to macrium forum's rescue media, find DSperber's posts -- that is a solution for now.
    Also, when in that advanced menu, go to drivers, click on use host drivers instead of compatible drivers.

    Thanks for the reply Roland. I am going to try putting the Windows10 PE on an external hard drive. I don't have a DVD/CD drive. I will give it a try soon. In the meantime, Windows System Image is my backup until Macrium becomes more reliable.

    Thanks Again ...

    I'm learning something here.

    Never knew you could restore a system image to an online copy of windows, that is you are trying to restore Windows from within the Windows system.

    I must see what I can find out about this.

    I know you can restore partions other than Windows, say a data partition, but not the system poartition.

    You are not wrong.

    Many of these things can start the process from within windows - however they will boot into some kind of pre-os mode ( outside of the installed windows) to do the job. In essence they are booting something off the hard disk - a wim file, some linux thing, or even dos.

    Many partition managers do similar.

    If I read correctly, yes, macrium can install a line item i to the Windows boot menu. That line item offers the choice to make within - Windows backups onto external media or to exit Windows and load MR WIM WinPE and Macrium Reflect.
