    Sorry, does this only happen when you boot using the rescue media?


    Did you add Macrium to the boot manager such that you can boot from it or windows?
    This happens on normal boot. I have not tried to boot from rescue media with the WD drive connected. I did add Macrium to the boot manager so I can boot from it or windows. I think that is where the problem began. I had some difficulty getting it to work. It is working now, but I still have the problem.

    Had trouble getting it to work. Added and removed it several times. I still have not figured out how the boot manager works.
    My plan is to make full system images from windows and restore them by booting from a thumb drive.
    It seems I need the boot manager loaded on drive C to be able to boot from the thumb drive? I thought I could boot directly from the thumb drive, but it does not work.

    two things, possibly.

    1) You have Secure Boot enabled in the BIOS, disable it.

    2) You need to either set the USB device as top first order of boot, or press the appropriate F-key on restart to get into the Boot Menu and select the USB device (Thumb drive)

    Secure boot is enabled. Pressing the F key does not show the thumb drive. I thought secure boot need to be enabled for security.

    What F key are you pressing to get boot menu on Asus, I have an Asus desktop and I always enter BIOS and use the Boot Override option. and I pick USB key with UEFI marked beside it.

    It is, but it's to prevent bad guys from walking up to your machine, popping in a thumb, and hurting you. It's ok to temp disable to boot your Macrium, then put it back.
