    Everytime I try and add the iso using rufus, it starts formatting then Windows 10 pops up with a "Fix USB" box and the rufus install/format fails. Why's that?
    Easier way - when you load up Macrium, go to other tasks, and select to create a Rescue Drive. You do not need Rufus, or worry about settings etc.

    Sorry, here you go...

    First, it looks like you have a system reserved partition on the SSD (E: drive). That should probably be where the boot files go (using EASY BCD) not C: Drive.

    Second, it looks like you have a page file set up of F: drive. Go into system properties, advanced settings, performance options, virtual memory and move any paging file settings to C: drive. (I would just check the box for automatically manage paging file size for all drives.)

    Third, if you want to create a rescue USB/DVD/CD with Macrium Reflect Free just select the USB drive inside Macrium Reflect - there is no need to use RUFUS to create a Macrium Reflect rescue drive.

    Fourth, if the motherboard is running the raid array, when you remove it you will want to set the BIOS hard drive controller settings to normal AHCI SATA, not raid (I think it will be referred to as IDE mode, not sure).

    OP didn't even have Macrium installed. He only has the Rescue ISO

    Cheers boys, in the end it was just the page file. Windows 10 seems to crash if it's not specified on an existing drive I think. Weird.

    Thank you all for your help.
