Good; press any key and see what happens.

The ST choice is your main hard drive, a Seagate.

Second choice is a DVD drive.

Last choice is a backup drive.

Third one is peculiar.

Eureka!! I guess that I did not click fast enough when "click any key to boot from cd came up"
When the time comes and I need to restore, I probably have to come back for advice. Thank you all so much for the help.

Good job.

Just write "Macrium Rescue Disk, 4-25-14" or something like that on the disk and keep it safely somewhere.

You might make a new image file with Macrium every month or so. Keep the 2 or 3 most recent ones---whatever your plan is.
