    If you have already made the usb and/or dvd Macrium Reflect boot, boot it, pick the image and restore it. If you haven't, install Macrium Reflect, then make the usb and/or dvd MR boot.

    well i tried the Macrium and was not able to continue the total size of the macrium was just under 300 mb so i was a little leary of that but it did have a .wim file for later more than 200 mb.

    also noticed that i bought the laptop in feb/mar time frame and that the restore to new in the box was 1511 so did the update get picked up when i activated the laptop. im sure the unit was on the shelf for quite a while? maybe?

    also ran SFC and all checked out good so maybe this was a good thing waiting on redstone for any major changes.

    many thanks not solved but its ok

Roll back to Win 7, then re install Win 10 later?
Hi all, I see it is possible to go back to my previous OS Win 7 as I am having some issues with things in Win 10, so could I within the next year re-install Win 10 or is it limited to just the one download and install? Thanks in advance
