    Well, I downloaded Win 10 again, and when I try to mount it , it tells me that the image is corrupt. Last 18 hrs. and 2 downloads wasted.

    Hi,

    Both the so called SRP images are in reality WinRe partitions.
    The boot record and its associated files are on the windows partition.
    Hence the system will boot and I don't think Macrium can move the bootrecord and bcd store from the C:\ partition to the new 450 Mb partition.
    Unless perhaps when the rest of the disk contains no system or Macrium Rescue CD can create one from scratch all by itself ? Never tried it but it may work.

    Have a nice day.

    So guys, any idea on how to get a good copy Win 10 install media???? All else is useless to me now, my system is so FUBARed that I can't sleep, eat and I'm so stressed!!!!

    I might ask that someone write down all the steps that you want me to take, for I got to try and download the media again, Another 8 -9 hrs., sheeze.

    Hi Nick,

    No need to stress.
    Since the dl of the windows install media failed twice in a row already we are going to do as Bill suggests.
    No use wasting another day on it at this point.

    Here is a description of the steps to follow:

    - Connect the external drive that contains the Macrium images we made.

    -Boot off of the Macrium rescue CD. Make the necessary changes in bios so booting from CD is the highest on the boot order priority list or use the machine's bootmenu (Fn key ? ) to select to boot off of CD.

    - From within Macrium select restore. Browse for image 0_SysRes etc. and load it in Macrium.

    - Select the drive to restore to: your c: drive. Make sure it is the correct drive. Only one internal drive should be connected at this point.

    -Drag and drop the loaded backup image to the beginning of the C:\ partition. It must be fully at the left of the partition.

    - Click restore and confirm.

    - Once it has finished close Macrium. It will automatically reboot.

    -Boot again off of the CD.

    -Macrium loads and select restore again.

    -Browse for and select 1_Windows from the backup drive. Select the same destination drive and drag and drop it right next to the small partition we just restored. Click restore, confirm the overwrite and let it finish.

    -Again close Macrium and reboot once more off of the cd.

    -In Macrium on the top left hand side there a menu option that reads something along these lines (I'll load it in a few minutes to verify and correct if necessary) : "Fix Windows boot problems".
    Click it.

    -Let it finish and reboot off the main hard drive this time.

    - Cross your fingers and hopefully Windows will start up.


    I suggest not doing this immediately. I hope Bill will have a look at the suggested steps and correct any if need be.

    Best,

    Went over to my son's house and used his 100 mbps internet, and all is right with the world now.

    Hi,

    Good to hear that, Nick.

    Do you understand the steps outlined in my post above ?

    Since you now have the Windows installation media we have an extra option: a clean install.
    We can go whichever is easier for you.

    I'd still like to wait for Bill to chip in. After all, he's the one who's helped you most.

    Cheers,

    Yes, I did Frank. I think I'll try that for now and let you know. I'll be online to the forum on my Tablet, so as to keep in touch.

    Well, I didn't get back my email, that sucks, but I guess be wagers can't be choosers.

    Ok, here's a question, how come I got so many partitions on drive c: ?
