    I think you are confused, this splash screen is built by Macrium, when you make your Rescue Media, you can choose to have it or not.

    I`m not saying you`re wrong Keith, but it only ever came up for me when I create the Rescue Media.

    I have a picture but it won`t upload It even says it uploaded LOL
    Don't worry about it. I can live with confusion.

    But you`re right, Under where it says Select Device, it does say Windows Boot Menu.

    It even kept my Samsung NVMe driver on the usb stick

    They are pretty good at using your installed drivers if possible.

    Hi Denis and Keith,

    Late 2017, when MR 7 was introduced, I used a "cheapo" 4GB USB stick given to me in a conference, to create Rescue Media. Since then I have overwritten it numerous times, as I recreate Rescue Media with every new release. I have never, ever encountered any problem booting with this stick. And I've done it quite a few times, both for restoring and for testing it...

    As Keith said, maybe I was lucky, or the "conference present" USB stick wasn't that cheapo after all, but it has never failed me and I keep using it until today!!! Maybe it's time to reconsider
    Good morning, Dimitri. I've used whatever was cheapest for years, and have never had a problem with booting from my Rescue Media stick, which is a Toshiba 16 GB. I think it came bundled with a Toshiba external drive. Of course, I've used other el cheapo drives as well.

    One thing I might add is . . . I've never formatted a "first time used" USB stick. I leave it as Fat 32.

    I've used this stick over and over and over, as someone said earlier.

    Further, I have a dual boot system, and for some odd reason, every time I update the Fast Ring partition, it destroys my boot info, so I have to boot with my USB stick and fix the dual boot order. I've never had a failure with any USB stick prepared with each new version of Macrium.

    I don't use Macrium and have not been keeping notes but there have been several threads about inability to boot from the rescue USB, including
    I cannot boot from my Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk I made - TenForums

    Denis, there can be many reasons for not being able to boot from a USB stick.

    I have an HP dual boot desktop and when I want to boot from a USB stick, I have to spam the Esc key until I get to the BIOS, then press the F9 key, etc. I have a Lenovo laptop that it took a whole lot of research in order to figure out how to get to the BIOS. Multiply by the number of computer brands, and that's how many ways there are to boot with a bootable USB stick.

    Thing is, unless you use Macrium Reflect, you can't know whether the OP you're quoting knows what they're doing or not. I use it, and still have trouble teaching it to my students.

    I merely pointed out Macrium guidance on the issue that I thought could usefully be referred to in the tutorial. A Macrium user pointed it out to me and I thought it worth passing on.

    Appreciate it Denis.

    I think I've actually run into this issue. Not with newer machines but older (older original Win 7) devices that boot legacy.

    Don't have one around at the moment but several of them I defaulted to CD/DVD's.

    Itching to try next time I come across one of them.

    Good morning Wynona!

    I think that after all we're probably both right. The booting problems with the MR Rescue Media is more likely attributable to the process followed to create the stick or other setup issues, rather than the quality of stick itself.

    Of course better quality sticks should last longer, but again that longevity has to do with the number of writes one performs. Since introduction of version 7, MR has issued 30 updates or so. Given that someone might miss a couple of them, that means that he/she should have made 25-30 writes on the same USB stick. Even the worst/cheapest USB stick should sustain a number like that.
    So, it's probably the user's mistake or its system BIOS setup that creates the booting problem and not the stick itself.

    After all, we all know, that once a problem is reported to Paramount, Nick or someone from his staff will respond within minutes and provide a resolution to any problem. That's one of the things that made this product so good, besides the logic and coding quality of it.
    It's the people behind it and their commitment to user experience and satisfaction!!!

    In anticipation of 19041, just finished an image of C: using MR. At the same time decided to update my MR rescue disk. I formated a used USB Lexar stick FAT32 and did the defaults on rescue creation. Tried a test boot up and it worked fine. Don't know if it is normal to add at some point the 14091.iso to it and use it to do a clean install?

    That usb had to be formatted to Fat32 which can't fit files larger than 4GB and ISO is over that.
