    Don't forget to mark the FAT32 partition on the flash drive as Active!

    Kari,

    Your Reflect RAM tip worked great. Now I can figure out why I can't get the Dell to boot off the flash drive. I've received a number of suggestions both here and the Dell forum. It'll take a few days to run them all down. If I still have problems with the USB boot I'll post to a new thread.

    One last question. I understand that the RAM restore is great as long as you can get that far with a problem machine. And that you still must have some sort of external boot method w/Reflect. With that as a given, is there any reason not to have the RAM boot option set to popup on reboot on our other 3 machines simply as another line of 'defense'?

    P.S. (acknowledged this is against forum etiquette, but a quick answer to a small off-topic problem I just got myself into with my wife's Win7 monitor trying to be helpful...) In the process of using Intel's display wizard (for the first and last time), the d*mn thing automatically changed the resolution to the 'correct' preferred which is not where my wife and I had it set a few years ago. Now I can't remember/get by trial and error where it was. Other than restoring an entire image from last night, or a restore point, is there is less drastic way of getting back to that unknown resolution value that was present an hour ago? I've not had great luck with restore points but if I did roll back would the resolution be restored?

    I see no reason not to add Macrium rescue to Windows boot menu. I have it always added, on all machines.

    Uhh - without you quoting post this refers to, it means we have to read all posts which can be a pain on a many paged thread.

    Point taken--

    Regarding NavyLCDR's suggestion to build UFD, FAT32--Active w/Reflect mounted ISO.

    I just checked the UFD that wouldn't Dell boot. For the record, it is FAT32 w/1 active partition.

    Nonetheless, before copying the mounted ISO I will reformat.

    I had used the OS's right click format previously and same had transparently marked the partition as active. Any reason not to use the OS again to reformat?

    I didn't answer it because I have not a faintest clue how Intel Display Wizard works and what it might or might not have done to your display.

    The Intel app itself is inconsequential. The only thing it did was change the screen resolution from what it was to what 'it' wanted and then I cancelled out of the utility but am stuck with the wrong resolution and would be happy as a clam if there was a less painful way than an image restore to return the screen resolution to what the system had prior to the change.

    Not knowing anything about any Dell Resolution Wizard, and not meaning to oversimplify, but are you looking for this standard setting? Click the dropdown arrow (V) and pick what you want.
