Old dog trying to learn new tricks. Help, please
My partner has made the switch from a traditional desktop to a Surface Pro 7. I am trying to create a disaster recovery procedure to protect and recover from future catastrophes - especially given that Microsoft has made the Surface product line unrepairable. ; i.e. soldering the HDD onto the motherboard,etc.
I've got a couple of current issues.
1. When I try to boot from a USB Acronis Rescue, I get the video parameter error. Will the bootwiz files referenced in KB 62646 work for True Image 2016? I know I could just try but given the various glitches and weirdness that I've already run into so far, my septuagenarian paranoia is creeping in. Or do I just bite the bullet and upgrade to True Image 2021 (with all of its bells and whistles that I really don't want)?
2. My plan is to continue to make daily full disk copy backups to an external USB drive. In the case of catastrophe, once Microsoft presents me with a replacement Surface Pro (multi year insurance contract), I will boot it to the USB Rescue stick and perform a full system restore from the latest backup. Preferred result is a new hardware platform running the last good software configuration; files, programs, etc.). From that point I will perform all the Windows updates released in the interim and be good to go. Right?
Any and all comments, good, bad or indifferent, gratefully accepted.
I'm getting too old for this.
Mucho gratias, David
