    VIBOOT with 32bit UEFI image from Macrium


    I have a Macrium Reflect Free image backup from my tablet which is uses a 32bit uefi format installation.

    I tried to open it in viboot but it refused to open it, and got in a loading failed loop.

    Installs done with 64bit uefi work fine.

    I checked the image and it is fine - I can load as an image and see all files.

    I am going to create a 32bit bios image (from a vm) and see if viboot handles that.

    I suspect viboot just will not handle 32bit uefi - opinions anybody?

    I will post this on the Macrium Support Forum as well.

    You mean the EFI firmware is 32bit or Windows is 32bit (or both)?

    I have an old mac (from 2006) which has 32bit EFI firmware but it is running 64bit Windows 10 so that probably wouldn't help much.

    My linx tablet has 32bit efi firmware and can only load 32bit Windows. I have created a Macrium image of tablet, but viboot will not open it and crashes. I have verified image is fine. I am going to try and restore image in a vm.

    Edit: From Macrium Support Forum, the answer is it cannot be done as Hyper-V only supports 64bit UEFI. Pity!
