    1.) Yes the MCT Boot USB is for Installing Windows only ..... Use another USB Key or CD to make the MR Boot Disk

    2.) Correct , you don't want to save anything , so no need till you have it all correct.
    Obviously be certain the existing c drive is backed up before reinstalling OS.

    When you clean install Windows 10 and it updates to the latest version, I recommend archiving that clean install image in case you need to restore that in the event of serious system problems. Obviously, also keep periodic backup images of the fully installed system as well.

    Hi

    i'm about to create Macrium Reflect bootable rescue media, on a CD, is it OK or should i do it on USB?
    If it doesn't matter, then i prefer on a CD.
    Do i leave the option " Enable multiboot MBR/UEFI....selected, or do i untick it?
    See the photo attached

    thank you

    You can use DVD or USB, but USB is faster. Check you can actually boot from the media you create. I'd keep the multiboot box ticked as recommended. I do that and the recovery drive boots fine.

    Yep the backup is part of the Plan :) ............after the Clean install and then again after running Windows Update...

    and yes leave the Defaults enabled a CD is fine as long as your computer will boot from it.....test it after you make it please.

    make sure you CLEAN the SSD during Win10 install this time , did you note Topgun's instructions to use?

    Regarding MR rescue media, in the end i did it on a USB.
    And i booted my PC from the USB, by changing the BIOS boot order, and it booted to MR interface whre it says repair windows...
    I did take photos with my phone as i coundnt use W10 snipping tool, but i can't upload those photos here.

    Does it mean the MR rescue media is good?
