Version 5 which is only available in the paid version now does all partitions on the backup by default. You can still do individual partitions. It also doesn't seem to give you any opportunity whether to restore the mbr or how to mark the partitions.

You can do something very easy like this:

1. install Macrium v5 - the trial version will be fine. Any Edition you like.

2. If you want Diskrestore - d/l it and put the 64 bit diskrestore.exe in Program Files\Macrium\ Reflect folder

3. In here is a 7-zip file. Unzip it directly onto your windows partition - e.g. C:

(This is newer version - adapted to work on oem machines)

4. In C:\Easype-31x64 folder there is an app that says RunMeAsAdmin.

This is awesome SIW2, Thanks.

Will this still work if I switch back to Macrium Free?

I like your background choice too.

as I mentioned you can run the diskrestore.exe from any appropriate pe environment. This includes the Hirens boot CD.

I find diskrestore.exe highly constrained.

Hi derikimmo,

Yes, the v5 boot media you just made works fine with images from v4.

So you can have v4 as your installed version and v5 as your boot media version if you like.

Mmm... Not sure what I'm doing wrong. I get an ISO with no boot.wim in its sources folder.

Couple of possibilities.

Is that an HP machine?

They may have put some of the required files in a non standard place.

The app. is supposed to tell you if that's the case.

Otherwise, it may be you pulled focus from the commands at an important moment.

Just rt click , run as admin - don't touch anything till it asks if you want to make an .iso.

See if that works.

If it is an oem isue - will have to find what and get a workaround.
