When I received that message, I popped in the Restore CD that I created.

Problem solved.
I've also narrowed it down to this option (but also don't a have a restore point I can reach now that was before the event ?? but I did ?) but also trying to make the rescue disk now, not before and cant find drivers for it to work in practise now the rescue media is saved on a external usb 3 hard drive can create the rescue disk but it cant access the usb 3 storage

usb2 is kind of generic thing. It can use a generic driver and works always.
usb3 need special drivers... but you can inject them!!
usb2 and macrium works out of the box

I remember from earlier Macrium versions that USB3 was not supported. But the latest versions work OK.

What model external is it, if it is powered off just usb then it might not get enough juice through usb 2. It should show up in the devices and printers area of the control panel.

If your USB3 drive does not work on USB3 and USB2, then something is wrong with the drive. But if that is a spinning 7200RPM disk, then lack of power may be the culprit.
