How to test Macrium Pro rescue disk?
After installing a Macrium update and creating a new image of my Win 8.1 PC, I decided it would be a good idea to make a new rescue disk. I reformatted the existing flash drive and tried to make an updated Win PE rescue drive, only to be informed the drive was too small.
It was quite a surprise to learn that whereas 250 MB was sufficient previously, apparently 1 GB is now required. So a 4 GB drive was used, that being all there was available. An even bigger surprise was that it only took a few seconds – certainly no more than 30.
Naturally I wish to test it, but have forgotten how to do that with Win 8. I seemed to remember it was Ctrl + F8, but that only booted normally. Using F12 to set the bios, I was confronted by a series of choices that have left me puzzled, as follows:
Windows Boot Manager
UEFI Removable Disk PMAP - does this include USB sticks?
Change Boot Mode setting
I tried the latter but it only offered to boot with or without Secure Boot, if I remember correctly.
Guidance on how to test what seems to be doubtful rescue disk would be much appreciated.
