    Gave it a shot and it booted into Marium from the USB flash first try just like you said. I then hit the little button in the lower left corner like you said and it asked me if I wanted to exit and reboot. I did, since it was the only choice, and it booted me right back to Macrium on the flash. So I did it one more time and quickly yanked out the flash when it started booting. Is there a cleaner way to exit Macrium when you are in Windows PE?

    Hurrah! It worked! Yes, once the Macrium is booted up on your screen, you can pull the thumb out. It's not needed while working in the WIN PE.

    That's always the biggest potential hurdle, booting to the thumb. But now you know it works. You didn't see anything about your images, because you don't have any.....yet!

    Time to make one. Did you set the ext drive policies to enable write cache?

    Yep, set it just like you said. I will make the image a little later after some chores this morning. It is very comforting to know that the recovery media works. Glad you pointed me into testing it. Talk to you later.

    Ok, later. Is this your machine?

    That is the one. I got it through Best Buy on a price match for $429 which I thought was a great deal. The thing is super fast, no waiting on anything. Of course this machine replaced a 13 year old XP machine with 1GB of ram, so most anything would have been noticeably faster. As a test, I opened up about 8 youtube videos, along with some word documents, a tax program, etc. Then I did some web browsing and everything was practically instantaneous.

    Just taking a look ahead at the Macrium program. It automatically checked six items as shown below. Since I would like to restore everything to normal if need be, should I go with all of the items?

    Sorry, I got diverted...

    Yes, in your case it adds up to about 60GB, which will compress down to about 36GB. Should take approx 15-20 minutes, with verify. Important you choose the option for verify. No sense making an image and not knowing it's good. Do you need some help with all the options?

    Well, since they are all checked, I assume operating system, programs, files, and everything will be imaged. I see below that I can select "image" but I also see on the far left of the screen that I can select "image selected disks" or "create an image of the partitions ...." Do I have to pick one of those or just select the "image this disk" in the main screen area?
