    I've never had deep fried turkey but I hear it's the best way to make it and the meat comes out very tender and moist

    BTW, since restoring my OS from my image, when I boot, I first get a message while booting: "Invalid Partition Table." I click on Enter and my OS continues to boot. Just before this message, I see three options for booting. All of them read "Windows." I only have one installation of Windows. Any ideas on what's wrong? These little glitches have a habit of growing into big glitches and I'd like to fix this - then take a fresh image. @NavyLCDR

    Hi Nisko. Sometimes mentioning two members doesn't work. If after you post if you don't see a link in name you know its dead. If you edit post it comes alive, usually.

    So @Kyhi and NavyLCDR is @NavyLCDR

    Is you drive MBR partitioned or GPT partitioned? If it is MBR partitioned, you can install MiniTool Partition Wizard Free and there will be a option to rebuild te MBR, if you right click on the disk 0 (or whatever number) icon for the drive.

    No offend to you but this statement is completely false. Windows Installation, Macrium, KYHI's ISO etc... all use WinPE. The sequence of how it works is clearly explained on the flow chart:
    Windows PE startup sequence explained
    From the chart. Windows installation will run "Winpesh.exe" and check the Sources folder for setup.exe then run. So you actually end up with running the Sources\setup.exe.

    The only time you run setup.exe or Source\setup.exe directly is if you've already under WinPE environment such as booting from @Kyhi 's ISO or Macrium.

    In conclusion, whether running setup.exe or Sources\setup.exe will allow you to clean install.

    @Nisko
    Your Disk 0 has a "System Reserved" partition and normally would be marked as "Active" to boot from but instead your C drive is marked as "Active" which means your Windows is not using "System Reserved" to boot.

    Your D drive containing DATA is also marked as "Active". Should be "Inactive"

    My suggestion is slightly different from the above:
    Finally, your disk should look as follows:

    NOTE:
    Depend on which Windows you boot from, the drive letter of the other will be something else. Probably E:
    Actually you are wrong. @Kari has written a tutorial that shows if you run setup.exe from the sources folder WHILST running normal Windows (not winpse), it will do a clean install. Very few people know this.

    If you do not believe me, try it in a virtual machine).

    @NavyLCDR : Mini-Tool Partition Wizard: can't rebuild MBR unless I purchase the Pro version ($33). Is there another way to do this? I thought this app used to rebuild the MBR - but the instructions say I need to upgrade in order to create a Mini-Tool boot device and fix the MBR from there. I tried the free version more than once. A message said successful - but, when I rebooted, I saw that the MBR hadn't been corrected.
