    True. There are often things we suddenly lose with new versions or things we can't do. There was a recent Macrium update that came with the suggestion of making new recovery media. Neither of my Insider 17063 machines could manage it. My regular FCU machines all could.
    I have that issue with Macrium too. Unable to save the ISO. Error message suggesting that I may be running XP

    Does anyone have issues with Windows Defender? It keeps showing me "Actions required" warning symbol in the task bar, but when I open it everything is fine.

    Hi,

    It keeps showing me "Actions required" warning symbol in the task bar, but when I open it everything is fine.
    I'd suggest running a quick scan anyhow. After that it should go back to normal.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    You may have to reboot the machine though. Hopefully it works after that. Windows sometimes gets its flip-flops in a bunch.

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear that. I suspect many users have seen that error appearing afer an update. It usualy tends to disappear after a while.

    Cheers,

    I keep telling everyone, having multiple WIndows OS on the same hard drive is easy to do, but a real PITA to maintain. Especially when Windows 10 updates happen. It works, yes. But that's not the end of it.
    Hyper-V is a different story.
    I always use virtual hard disks for dual boot. Absolutely the easiest and hassle free method to dual & multi boot. Your post quoted above made me think I need to show how easy it is. Posted this a few minutes ago in TF Video thread:

    New video: Dual Boot - The Easy Way



    The easiest possible method to dual boot. No partitioning, no virtualization required. Deploy Windows 10 on a virtual hard disk VHD or VHDX file, add it to boot menu. When done, when you no longer want to dual boot, just delete the VHD file.

    The DISKPART script and deployment batch from video:

    DISKPART scripts are normal text files with extension .txt. To run a DISKPART script, enter following command:

    diskpart /s DRIVE:\FOLDER\SCRIPT.TXT

    Here's the script used in video:
    Code:
    create vdisk file=F:\W10PRO.vhdx maximum=51200 type=expandable
    attach vdisk
    create part primary
    format quick label="Windows"
    assign letter=W
    exit
    Save script as VHDConfig.txt

    Above script creates a dynamically expanding 50 GB (51,200 MB) VHDX file (you can use .vhd or .vhdx) named W10PRO.vhdx in root of drive F:, labels it Windows and assigns it a temporary drive letter W:. Edit script to meet your needs, be sure the drive you create VHD has double the free storage than the size of VHD; if you will create a 100 GB VHD file to be used in dual boot, the drive where it will be created needs 200 GB free.

    Also, be sure to assign an unused drive letter! I always use W: which I have reserved for this purpose, never assigning it to anything else. In any case the drive letter will only be needed for deployment, it will be freed when VHD will be unmounted.

    The deployment batch is really simple, too. It just runs DISKPART script to set up VHD, deploys Windows on it with DISM, adds it to host boot menu and finally changes the boot menu entry to something more descriptive:
    Code:
    start /wait diskpart /s E:\Users\Kari\Scripts\VHDConf.txt
    start /wait dism /apply-image /imagefile:I:\sources\install.wim /index:8 /applydir:W:\
    start /wait bcdboot W:\Windows
    start /wait bcdedit /set {default} description "W10 PRO EN-GB (VHD)"
    cls
    @echo off
    echo. 
    echo Windows deployed to VHD file
    echo and added to host boot menu.
    echo.
    pause
    exit
    Save batch file as VHDBoot.bat

    Again, edit the batch to meet your needs. Be sure path to DISKPART script is correct, and that path to install.wim (or in case of MCT ISO install.esd) is correct in DISM command. Select correct index value. Check that BCDBOOT will add Windows to boot menu from correct disk, the drive letter here must be the same DISKPART script assigned to VHD.

    Windows 10 ISO index values:
    Edition Media Creation Tool ISO WinInsider & MSDN ISO
    S - 1
    S N - 2
    Home 2 3
    Home N - 4
    Home SL 3 5
    Pro 1 8
    Pro N - 9
    Education 4 6
    Education N - 7

    All single edition ISO images have index value 1 for edition in question regardless of edition, for instance whatever edition you are running, its index = 1 if you made the ISO by yourself with UUPtoISO.

    Totally agree - only downside of a vhd is you cannot upgrade build if vhd is attached to host.
