    Recreate Media with Macrium - selecting WinRE-
    BUT before re-creating Media - Delete C:\Boot - which is Macriums working folder...
    The Mouse & Keyboard Drivers are included inside WinPE & WinRE - so not sure why you have that issue...

    I will try that, probably today and report back.

    The mystery is why this only happens on this one PC. The RE boot stick worked on 3 other PCs fine.
    I suspected there was something wrong in the Recovery Environment, but booting into RE works fine with mouse and keyboard.

    Would have to say based upon your statement - it appears to be PC related and not Media related...

    Yes, agreed.
    Working on possible reasons now.

    I always try to build a MR rescue disk for each machine. There will always be a intrinsic driver that is required. Even though all boot rescue sticks work on every machine one never knows.

    For me avoiding problems has always been the key to longevity.

    That is why it is so strange that the one machine the stick does not work on is the machine it was created on. It makes no sense.

    Decision made. Sticking with Acronis.

    I am quite sure that this problem is local (on the problem PC) and there is nothing wrong with Macrium or even the rescue media. So carry on Macrium dudes!

    I kept the Macrium boot stick and I will experiment when time permits to see if I can figure out what setting, component, or environmental oddity is causing the problem, but for now I need to do some images!

    The Acronis rescue media is Linux based so it works on all computers, all the time, no configuration problems.
    I have been using True image since 2006 and it is like an old pair of jeans to me. I've actually never installed the program on my hard disk until yesterday! I wanted a USB rescue media and unlike the ISO you can't just download it from your account. It has to be created from inside an activated product.

    Did you try checking off the option when making it to look for missing drivers when booting?

    Yes I did.
    There were two options relating to drivers, that one in the main window, and another in Advanced to allow override of the PE drivers with local ones. I toggled through all 4 options. No joy.
