    Just FYI. Apparently this is still available. Doesn't answer your issue, I know, but might prove/disprove if it will run at all!

    Thanks I just wanted to try it in a "real world" situation I was in yesterday. My main way of recouping my system from an attack is Macrium, with an external disk image that stays disconnected, until I've run complete Defender, AdwCleaner, MBAM, and MRT scans, on all four internal disks, and then I'm ready to create an image.

    Caution / Warning: Windows Defender Offline (WDO) blue screen boot loop

    For those using Windows 10 version 1607.
    Windows Defender Offline was first integrated into Windows 10 beginning with the Anniversary version 1607.

    A WDO blue screen boot loop can be an unexpected outcome if you use Windows Driver Verifier.

    How to reproduce the WDO blue screen boot loop with windows 10 version 1607:

    1) start with a clean install of windows 10 version 1607 using windows 10 iso: Download Windows 10
    2) type verifier in search
    3) move dot from create standard settings to create custom settings (for code developers)
    4) for select individual settings from this full list check all boxes except Randomized low resources simulation and DDI compliance checking, and DDI compliance checking (additional)
    5) click next
    6)move dot from automatically select unsigned drivers to select drive names from a list
    7) click next
    8) click on column heading Provider so that it sorts the providers
    9) check all non-Microsoft drivers (on a recent clean install for my notebook there were approximately 17)
    10) click finish

    run driver verifier until it produces a blue screen
    typically one occurs immediately with stop code driver verifier detected violation

    11) power off and power on to go to windows troubleshooting menu
    12) choose start up options
    13) select choice number 6: safe mode with command prompt
    14) type verifier /reset
    15) reboot and return to the desktop
    16) open windows defender and click on setting in the right upper corner
    17) in the pop up scroll towards the bottom and click on scan offline
    18) reboot
    19) observe the WDO load
    20) observe the WDO quick scan
    21) reboot to desktop
    22) so far you have ran one windows driver verifier and produce a blue screen and have run WDO and returned to the desktop. Now you must prepare for the WDO blue screen boot loop. Any and all important files should be backed up. Any diagnostic or research work should be done at this time as the next step will lead to the WDO blue screen boot loop.
    23) run Windows driver verifier a second time
    24) now you are in a WDO blue screen boot loop
    25) if you try to exit this blue screen boot loop all boots lead to another WDO load and then WDO quick scan.
    26) it was not possible to get to safe mode with command prompt to turn off windows driver verifier
    27) using a windows 10 bootable iso for windows troubleshooting unfortunately is missing the startup options menu so you cannot get to safe mode with command prompt.
    28) a reset with save files may indicate the drive where windows is located is locked. Please unlock the drive and try again.
    29) a reset with remove all files may indicate that there is a missing partition.
    30) window 10 version 1607 will soon become an old version. The windows 10 Creators Update is rolling out this month (April 2017). At this point it is unknown whether this incompatibility problem will persist or whether it has been corrected.
    If anyone already has a copy of the new version if you can please check to see whether there is still an incompatibility problem with the two windows software products.

    I am sorry if my post is not relevant.
    I used Macrium for over a decade with no issues.
    I had a problem with WDO when I first tried it. I recovered with Macrium and since then it runs every time. This is likely not applicable to your post which is too complicated for me but I saw the 2 red flag words and wanted to comment on them.

    Windows 10 Version 1703 upgrade has fixed a problem with version 1607


    Yesterday 4/5/2017 I upgrade one of my computers from windows 10 professional version 1607 to Windows 10 version 1703 (OS Build 15063.13).

    The WDO blue screen boot loop was tested using windows driver verifier.

    The WDO blue screen boot loop will soon become history as the new version 1703 did not produce a WDO blue screen boot loop.
