    Recovery Drive to ISO Troubles


    I have been trying to convert the Windows 10 Recovery Drive (USB) to an ISO so I can include it in a multiboot recovery drive I have been building. I have succeeded in creating the bootable ISO, but no matter what I do, this is what I get:

    I've tried the same thing with a Win7 repair DVD, with similar results.

    Can someone shine a light for me?

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    how did you create the recovery drive ?
    Control panel > recovery > create a recovery drive ???
    Did you include the system files ? checkbox ?

    Also from command prompt type > reagent /info
    does it show as enabled ????

    Also after creating the recovery drive - boot from the USB..
    Do you still get that error ????

    Yes, I created it from Control panel > recovery > create a recovery drive
    No, I did not backup system files. I wanted it to be as generic as possible.

    From command prompt, reagent /info
    'reagent' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

    The USB recovery drive boots as it should.

    Windows 10 Pro

    its:
    reagentc /info

    Need to be careful, a lot of times the browser auto corrects it to reagent, but the command is reagentc :-)

    Ah, that's better. It must also be run from elevated command prompt.

    Yes, it's enabled.
