    I have not tried using that method, but I don't see any reason that would work. Like I seem to have to repeat over and over again, its all because of the Nvidia GTX 750ti card!!!!!!! Their IS a fix for this problem, if you are installing Linux Mint on a hard drive, then their seems to be a way to add the needed graphics drivers needed to run Linux mint and add some lines to the boot files. But this is way beyond my knowledge of Linux. Plus I do not want to install Linux on a VM. All I wanted to do was make a Linux rescue usb flash drive disk. Which I DID do successively and had it working just fine, UNTIL I Updated my Graphics Card!!!

    What I am doing now is just going to wait for Linux Mint 17.3 and see if the graphics card problem is fixed.

    Another way would be to simply try another distro from the range available, for what you use a recovery tool for the actual UI should not be an issue, not a great linux user these days, but something like Ubuntu may have better support for what is after all not the latest graphics card

    Yes Barman you are correct my graphics card is far from being the latest release. That's why I was surprised to see no support for it in Linux Mint. I just might try your suggestion about Ubuntu too. But right now I think I will just wait to see how Linux Mint 17.3 runs when its released within the next couple weeks. I really liked the features I had with 17.2 with accessing my Windows 10 Pro. Including gpart which could come in handy if I had problems with my Windows 10. Just thought it was a good backup recovery method to have in my "toolbox" incase of problems down the road with my Windows 10.

    Or pure Debian of which Ubuntu, mint and co are originally based off of.

    Or better yet if it's just for recovery, then a WinPe recovery tool might do the trick too(but this is a bit over my head, probably @Kyhi could help here.

    Cliff, the reason I suggested Ubuntu is that it is (or was), one of the more popular versions and so may have more support.

    Mike, I have had mixed results with using gParted and other linux partition managers with windows installs in the past so try to only use linux for data recovery and then re- install windows partitioning as I go or use a windows partition manager

    Good points on both notes Barman!!! I did notice when I ran gParted that it was reporting 2 small problems with my partitions, that I really didn't have problems with!!! And when I checked with my Windows partition software, they report my partitions were just fine. This install of Windows 10 Pro is a clean install, and Windows made my partitions. My Windows since I did the clean install runs GREAT. Plus I do complete image backups too using Macrium Reflect. I just wanted to add another tool for recovery choices, that's all. I do appreciate all the ideas everyone is suggesting thou!!!!

    I personally think that all users windows 10 or Linux should stick to there own forums. It makes things easier. But I guess if you also have windows 10 then your ok to be here.
