I have enabled old fashioned F8 and a second safeboot option in Windows10 boot menu and have never needed a rescue disk since I used Vista.My only "con" for this config would be "System Backup -> Windows Image Backup", I would not trust much on it
Thanks for sharing
Good config, if you will change your idea about that I would suggest you to use Macrium Reflect Free or AOMEI Backupper to perform system backups.I have enabled old fashioned F8 and a second safeboot option in Windows10 boot menu and have never needed a rescue disk since I used Vista.
I recently tried to restore a Windows image and it failed spectacularly. I switched imaging to Macrium. Using Windows file backup for easy access backup.
I guess if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I wouldn’t if I hadn’t had problems. I’ve never gotten Windows to re-image properly. File backups seem to work fine. For some reason Windows always decides I’ve tried to image dissimilar hardware, even when no firmware updates have happened. Oh well, Macrium’s scheduled backups work better for me than Win did anyway.As posted before Windows image backup never failed on any Windows OS I used (what ever version).
I downgraded form windows 10 to Windows 7 when I installed an SSD on my PC, which did not respond to F8. Even after using the get the classic F8 registry hack. It turned out my USB3 was the problem. On my old desktop I had two USB3 ports which needed a driver to work with the MoBo. After swapping my keyboard into a USB2 port, Windows would respond to pressing F8.
I ' upgraded to Windows10' again this january because I had given my Windows7 desktop to an older family member who could not get used to Windows 10.
Agree, good advice .I guess if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Not having an option to do incremental backups and being able to password protect the image are main problems for me. But if it suits your needs than there's no need to change it.As posted before Windows image backup never failed on any Windows OS I used (what ever version)
