    Macrium Reflect Rescue Media


    Hi

    i have a desktop PC with Windows 10 home.
    i have created the Macrium Reflect rescue media on USB. ( I have used it to restore images and works fine ).

    i have a Surface Pro 4 with Windows 10 Pro, i have created an image of the disc using Macrium Reflect and saved it on my external.

    my question is, will the rescue media created on the PC work on the Surface ? or each machine must have its own rescue media ?

    thank you

    Hi, have a look at this.
    Creating rescue media - KnowledgeBase v7 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase - KnowledgeBase v7 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase

    Note: I can't tell you if there's a difference between the free and commercial versions of Macrium in this area.

    They generally do if just restoring / backing up to local or usb drives, but may have issues if you try to use it to say restore from a network drive as network drivers are usually pc specific.

    Also, some older bioses are not fully winpe 10 compatible, and you may need to use an earlier winpe e,g. winpe 5. This should not be an issue for a surface pro 4 though.
