    Did you boot override. Looks like it is option 5, you will have to scroll down to see Override section in BIOS

    Great so now you have Rescue Media you can boot from.

    Are you okay with Diskpart commands to show partitions. (Kyhi's suggestion that I hoped we would see with minitool.)

    No, I was hoping for an easier method with less room for error.

    If you are careful looking should not be an issue.

    Right click start, then click command prompt(admin) or Powershell(admin)

    Then the following commands

    Diskpart

    list disk

    Study list carefully to find the disk number of your WD. Should be pretty easy to spot at 8TB

    select disk x - where x is the disk number of WD

    list part

    Just take a pic like you did with the AMI start screen in very first post of this thread.

    exit

    exit

    Well Disk 6 is a single partition.... I believe I seen disk as GPT somewhere ??
    So no Extra EFI (Bootable) Partition on external Disk..

    But going back and looking at disk management and the error message regarding GPT Header...
    Is it not usually when you convert disk to GPT (using Diskpart) a small partition is also created for partition header data ?? Like a MSR partition ?? I do not have empty drive to test, but believe to recall partition creation...

    Disk 6 is GPT.
    I don't understand why that drive would be creating the problem. I would think it might be the boot manager on drive C.

    BTW, since I am only booting from a flash drive now to restore a system image, do I still need this dir & files? C:\boot\macrium, or can I delete it.

    Your first Post -Pic- has an error message at the Bottom regarding corrupt GPT Header
    And since you can Boot properly without Disk attached
    I would now assume that it is not Boot Manager related - put rather External Disk Related

    since I am only booting from a flash drive now to restore a system image, do I still need this dir & files? C:\boot\macrium, or can I delete it.
    Since you using Flash Drive - Yes you can safely remove that C:\Boot Folder

    Yes, at least in Windows, a 16MB partition is created at the beginning of the disk when you initialize GPT. It does not get a letter and does not show in Disk Management. But Disk utility programs do show it as "other", the same as a MSR partition.
    I've read that MS thinks it needs this space in case the disk is ever used for an OS. Can't remember why.
