    you need to add the license data to the PE registery..

    From host, use regedit and browse to > then export
    Or better yet do from within MacriumPE

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Macrium\Reflect]
    Thanks - I will give that a bash

    Sorry if this has been covered but what about bitlocker? Is manage-bde included or I have to add it?

    Is there some way to do the Macrium style auto-unlock or does it require a USB with the .bek file on? If so how am I supposed to get a .bek for the C:\ volume? Windows 10 doesn't seem to want to give a .bek for the C:\ volume (only other ones) if you have TPM so how should I (how can I) unlock it from PE?

    Should I run manage-bde –unlock C: -recoverypassword 111111-222222-333333-444444-555555-666666-777777-888888 or is there a better way?

    The Gui recovery key (48-digit key) is equivalent to the command line -RecoveryPassword switch.

    Using Manage-bde command line (-help):
    > Manage-bde -on D: -RecoveryKey L: -RecoveryPassword -Password

    in the example, D: is the encrypting drive and L: is your USB flash drive.
    It asks the password and it creates an encrypted .BEK file on your USB stick.
    Save also the recovery password (the 48-digit key).

    *** UnLock Drive on PE ***

    - In File Explorer > Crypted drive > Right-click context menu > UnLock Drive.
    Use the password or use the recovery key, the 48-digit key recovery password.

    - Using Manage-bde command line (-help):
    > Manage-bde -unlock D: -RecoveryKey L:\xxxx.BEK
    > Manage-bde -unlock D: -Password (the password is requested).
    > Manage-bde -unlock D: -RecoveryPassword 123456-... (the 48-digit password key).

    may want to also export from host >

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Macrium\Reflect]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Macrium\Reflect]

    you should end up with from local-machine
    activationcode
    licencedata
    hash
    licensee

    you should end up with from current-user
    License

    Again Better to Export from within macriumPE

    What is oldest hardware that "Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk” will work with?

    Reason for asking is I am using Hirens 15.2 now and would be nice to have something newer.

    Did a quick scan of the thread but did not see that anyone asked this question.

    Thanks

    When I try to run Image-health option 3 then 2 I get this error:
    Code:
    ===============================================================================
      Press 0 - Use the Source:ESD:Install.esd as Repair Method ( soure:esd: )
      Press 1 - Export Install.esd to Install.wim as Repair Source ( source:wim: )
      Press 2 - Mount the Windows Image as the Repair Source ( Recommended )
    ===============================================================================
    > Enter Your Option: 2
    
    ERROR: Required Wimlib-Imagex Files Not Found.
    Press any key to continue . . .
    When I try to specify the /Source it still fails:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth fails with or without the /Source parameter.

    Code:
    C:\Image-Health>dir D:\SOURCES\INSTALL.ESD
     Volume in drive D is ESD-ISO
     Volume Serial Number is C322-0D01
    
     Directory of D:\SOURCES

    Error: 0x800f081f
    
    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.
    
    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log
    Is the problem that DISM does not support the use of a esd file instead of a wim file?


    Never mind (maybe) I just noticed option 0 anbd 1. Will try them.
