I chose the Second one "Reflect" for the Install Software Options, hope that was correct.

Did I mess up by Choosing "Reflect" for the Install? The first choice was asking about Installing some Web based tools that I did not think I needed.

It didn't matter it still installed the program and you should create the rescue disk or usb stick with WinPE that should be the default if on windows. Set for multi boot MBR/UEFI. The BIOS will have to be set to CD/DVD or USB as first boot option depending which you chose.

@billmcct, thanks! I will create the disk and move on. I'm pretty sure the choice I made was good but I can't be positive. I think it was to use the tool over the Network, which I don't need. AOMEI was very simple to use over this so far, but I could have just installed the default, so that's on me if it doesn't work.

I can't comment on AOMEI because I've never used it. The Macrium software is UK based and when I have installed the free version of the software (V5 & V6) I just accept the defaults. Note though that you need to select the "free" option if that is what you want. Also, when downloading Macrium I deselect "install after download" and store the installation file for later.

This tutorial is on the Windows ten forum but may be helpful:

Thanks guys, I'm preparing for a major storm here in FL so won't be posting for a while. Unfortunately won't even be able to do this project now. I've used Macrium before, but it is quite a while ago.

Thanks, signing out till after the storm, Nasty7

Best of luck to everyone in Florida. That storm looks really bad.
