Storagecraft Windows 10 restored image will not boot
Posted on 2016-09-14
Working with a Windows 10 laptop and StorageCraft Shadow Protect Desktop.
I have restored an image for a Windows 10 laptop UEFI to a brand new drive in a laptop. The old drive was failing, and the replacement drive is the same Brand | Model | Capacity and RPM. I made the boot environment from a download of their Recovery Environment version 1.1.9 this week. When the restore shows completed.. I hit File | exit and then reboot the machine.
When the machine reboots... If the Recovery Environment USB is plugged in - the machine boots directly to the Recovery environment (no F12 needed to select boot option) i.e. it thinks the USB is C:|
If the RE USB is not plugged in, I get a "no boot media found" message.
Somehow the "C" is not being assigned properly.
The primry partition is a system drive: C:\... no other drive partitions except the small ones that MS creates. The Backup imge that we are restoring is for "C only"
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
