    • I am late reading this but be aware mounting an image with the drive it was imaged on connected may cause Windows to chagne the disk ID so that 2 disks do not have the same ID. I am admittedly a bit confused on the consequences of this . BTW does this board have a spell checker?

    • in reply to: Macrium Reflect Pro v5.2: How to test a system image safely? #1425789

      I tried to load the vhd into VirtualBox. No luck! Stops @ apf440. loading. I made an image with Vhd2disk (from sysinternals). That stopped at the same spot In VirtualBox as well. (recovery console did run!). I did not yet try a direct boot of that. There was a note on the Macrium site that if an image was mounted or attached on the same hardware it was created from the disk ID would be changed and a direct boot would not work. I did explore the Macrium image via Macrium maybe that was the problem??

      And maybe time to move this to a different part of the Lounge???

    • OK
      NOGO 1 attempt no RTFM involved :rolleyes:
      W7 is working no problem. EasyBCD to boot vhd file no love
      But I did finally put a legit W7 install on the box. I think (jumping threads here) WAIK and Macrium boot disk next before I do some real damage.
      Oh and maybe some Tday leftovers:)

    • Ohhhh now I am all confused again. What is the “difference between booting from a .vhd disk on the same hardware where the image was created, or run the .vhd in a VM.” I understand a VM (remember I am using XP) the former I find confusing.
      PS I just did a conversion!!!

    • ruirib

      Thanks sooo much. I have been wanting to try to make a virtual drive out of my 11 year old XP install but never got around to it because …. well maybe a bit lazy, could it be?? This makes it look easy. I actually have installed it already. And no I did not need a paid version. Thanks again for the link. I will post back when/if I do this.

      I was able to download the full install of the free version from softpedia.
      The macrium site does not seem to admit to there being a free version from inside the site. A google will lead to a page with a dl link for the downloader/installer but has a MD5 hash for the full installer. Which matched BTW.

      I am going to try the new PE (WAIK) recovery disk this week end….

    • Can we backup a bit here (no pun unintended) to the idea of booting the image in Win7 ?

      I have a W7 Home Premium computer over due for an imaging (I use Macrium Reflect ).
      Its my girl friend’s game computer and not knowing how to backup the game state I do an image,once in a great while I admit. It would be nice to know if the image was intact enough to boot.
      Is this a feature native to W7 ? Are we talking a virtual drive? I guess that would be OK to.

      If I was really afraid of losing functionality for a period I would go with lanshark’s suggestion of removable drive. Running A and saving image to second partition of B could the image be restored to the first partition of B? If so A could be removed and stored someplace safe and B tested. A now would be fully functional with no chance of a nonworking restore. Just my 2ยข

    • in reply to: Update > EMET 4.1 released #1424759

      Ok now lots of strange stuff surrounding my use of EMET. 4.1 now loaded.
      Logged in as admin and trying to run from tray I get a must be admin to run message. Runs fine if clicking the executable directly.
      Ok I can deal w/ that.
      I am more that a little confused that despite many reporting that Chrome has problems w/ SHEOP it is EAP that kills it. I will get 3 instances listed as protected but no window if EAP is active for Chrome.
      Importing a profile seems to delete what ever is there to begin with, mmm. It would be nice if a merge were possible. I guess if I knew what I was doing I could manually merge the xml files.
      It seems the wizard just loads the recommended profile, am I wrong about this or does it do any hunting for installed programs?

      I just updated when asked. There may be an option to opt out of having AVG be your home pages (or not, I did not see one). No other problem.

      I rarely find the free version of a security program offers anything I can’t do w/o. Parental control? if I had a kid I would hope he could circumvent it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž “Identity protection” oh yeah sure. Some measure of control maybe.
      I agree with the common opinion on this forum: If you are an average person use reasonable precautions you are likely to be safe, if you are a high value (ie a person of interest to a government or a corporate competitor) target well …
      Just glad I’m not.

      It would not have been an install per say, there was an upgrade to AVG14, I was feeling under the weather so I might have missed a check box. I was not expecting a check box in an upgrade dialog box.

      Thanks for the warning I am fairly confident that the email came from them. I will be sticking with the free version. AVG maybe, likely ZA , however everything take time here …
