    Boot into Macrium?

    I installed Macrium Reflect so that I can have complete backup images of my new desktop.

    I noticed that upon reboot I'm offered a dual-boot: Windows, as expected. And Macrium as an alternate.

    So what happens if I choose Macrium?

    It will boot into the Macrium recovery console so you can restore an image.

    However, in addition to adding the boot menu item for booting into Macrium Reflect, you should also create a Macrium recovery USB flash drive. If you hard drive fails and needs to be replaced, you will boot into the Macrium recovery USB flash drive and use that to recover the backup image to the new hard drive or SSD.
