Actually Kado mate I did that fix before I did the image but didn't think it had much to do with it so didn't mention it

I am guessing I did something wrong but for the life of me I cannot say what
Are you saying you clicked on the [E] drive, and that tick made the external listed as some other drive letter ?
Do you have your power options set to turn off hard drives ?

Hi,
Sorry to be dense here but I don't see how to use winpe after burning it to disk with imgburn

I know an image has to be created but I don't see how winpe does that

Mike. You boot from the WinPE. It is normally used to restore an image created previously with Macrium from within Windows but it can also be used to create an image. There is a link to a YouTube video that I created on the restore process in the notes at the beginning of the tutorial.

Sorry I thought the point in winpe was so you didn't have to install reflect
I made the cd using imgburn I have not made an image yet :/
cd boot but has nothing to point too

If I understand after using reflect to make the image I then need to burn the iso again with imgburn

Oops winre

Well, yes and no. The initial purpose of the WinPE was to recover an image. But it can also be used to make images if you do not want to install Macrium. And you need only 1 copy - except for certain new releases - e.g. Rel. 6 which does not work with the old WinPEs.

One little detail for me is I do not plan on leaving this back drive connected all the time matter of fact it will be remove soon after the image and recovery disk is created or vise verses create the recovery disk and then the image which quite frankly is where I am stumped because you really do not say how to use winre or pe to create an image from boot or otherwise unless I missed something in the translation

Recovery is premature when I have het to make anything yet besides a premature disk to recover nothing
