    Hi zbook and mrgear... I installed macrium. Would you guys tell me if I should create a windows PE rescue media? If so, macrium gives me the option of choosing either one in the win 10 boot menu or as an iso file. See screen shot. Let me know.. thanks!
    Plug in a USB stick and it will give you a third option, to make a bootable rescue usb. That is the one I find the most useful.

    It would be useful to have it handy when you need it.
    The tool can be made if you have a working computer at the time of boot failure.
    Kyhi boot rescue can often be used to create the USB stick.

    The dialog has an option to "enable multi boot (MBR/UEFI)". Do I leave this option enabled when I make a bootable rescue USB?

    Probably a good idea, then it will how ever you have BIOS setup.

    I agree with Ztrucker. It will do no harm to leave it ticked, as it is by default. Also, it means that the usb is bootable on all other machines, whether they are UEFI or legacy MBR systems.

    Did you know that you can use the rescue usb to make images as well as restore them? I have used mine to make images of all my other PCs. They don't need to have Macrium installed, or even Windows 10 come to that. One of them is a legacy MBR Windows 7 system.

    Hi bree.. how are you able to backup and restore images on usb without macrium? Does this work in win 10 1809?

    I installed Macrium on one PC, made the recovery usb, then booted all my other PCs from the recovery usb. This has a full copy of Macrium on it, so you can use it to make an image for any machine that can boot from the usb. Win10, Win7, even Linux - it doesn't matter what is on the PC, if it can boot from the Macrium recovery usb you can make an image of its drive.

    Ok this I know. I thought you were talking about something else.
