    @simrick that 's fine. Before the thread there were some failed restorations. bertie11 reported both acronis and macrium images and has already considered clean install. Kyhi has already started.

    I just spent 30 minutes typing out my current situation only for it to disappear with a message saying' the token has expired, press the back button and go back to the previous window'.

    What does that mean, I will have to start all over again now?

    I will have to post a quick reply as I'm not allowed to use 'Advanced' now.

    I have now purchased another laptop so at least I will have something that will boot up (I really hope so!). This old laptop keeps locking up when overheating so i can't trust it. I have recovered most/all of my data from earlier Acronis images, folders and files, so I guess I am in a position to move forward with the faulty system.

    First off, is it possible to recover from the blunder I made earlier in post #35 where I typed MD backup? If no, I am tempted to go for a clean install onto C:\ and then drag a suitable C:\ image from Reflect onto it and see what happens as Simrick suggests. I would have liked to have kept as much as I could rather than clean the whole disk in case I see anything I still need. What would happen if I just formatted C:\ rather than the whole disk?

    Kyhi, I'm still not sure about using your disk as I have so much going on here that I just want a simple resolution and I suspect the new install of 10 onto C:\ might be simplest. If I remember how to do it!

    My thanks to everyone helping me here.

    Off Topic, One thing to check on your browser is some form of auto refresh add-on - this can cause the page to reset and lose a post

    Barman 58, I use Firefox and i'm pretty sure there nothing of that ilk of an auto refresh add-on.

    I will try again especially if I need to post more images.

    Thanks.

    That's odd, but good. I just went 'Advanced and it was fine! Any idea what 'token' refers to?

    There is a timer Token to handle automatic Logouts built into the forum software, (for User protection ), not sure of the current setting but it is in the Range of 30 to 60 Minutes of non activity. We have in the past seen this log someone out and result in lost work but only as a result of someone leaving a part finished post untouched for the timer duration - could this apply in your case?

    Yes, that would have been most likely! I'm not the fastest typer and I was backwards and forwards collecting data from previous posts!

    It sounds like that was what happened and now I'm aware I shall bear it in mind!

    Thanks for the probable explanation.

    I can't answer regarding the things you were doing with zbook. But, if you're going to do the clean install, you'll want to get rid of all the partitions on the drive, and let Windows create what it needs.

    Kyhi's recovery media is simply a Windows PE environment, with a bit more stuff added in. It includes Macrium, so you could use it when restoring your C partition. It's nothing to be scared of.

    You're sure the Macrium backup is in good shape, yes?

    How did it go with Kyhi's suggestions?

    And there is my problem, I'm still not sure how I build this recovery disk. I can see it will be very useful in the future, although I read in this thread that it isn't up to date, at least, I thought I read that. So there would be a load of Windows updates to hack through later, after the install?

    I'm afraid I will need a basic step by step guide on how to make this disk, if someone has the patience!

    Re the contents of my C:\ drive. I used to have a list of all the programs I had installed and most of them were on C:\ so if I do a clean instal, zap everything on the disk I will need to rely on a fading memory! On the other hand, it will be a good opportunity to ditch a load of stuff I hardly ever use. I have recovered my eM Client so I have access to my serial numbers etc.

    Re the Reflect image, I think I usually do an auto validate on creation but now I'm not 100% sure. In any case that won't matter if it fails as once I have my new system setup and running the borked system will be the new spare so it would be a slimmed down version of my 'good' system. That would allow me to dispose of this flaky current spare that I'm using now.

    Exciting, isn't it?

    Thanks Simrick.

    Barman58, I just used 'Advanced', all OK!

    I have just been trying to do a fresh install of Windows 10 using the ISO I burnt to DVD. I'm asked to select a partition to install to but it will fail to install to any of them. I tried format, which is only a quick one but I cannot see how I can format the whole disk to get get rid of whatever is on there.

    Whatever I have tried just goes back to the blue screen with the language selection and that is it, even after loading all necessary files.

    How can I do a complete format of C:\ getting rid of all existing partitions?
