Reboot Required - for no obvious reason
Had an industrial PC go BSOD over the weekend because of storms. From the OEM, the disk has a factory default.tib on it, separate partition from Win7 (embedded standard). Getting to recovery manager on this box is a no-go, the option is not there.
I yank the disk, attach to Win10 Lenovo Laptop with Acronis 2016 on it, add existing backup, select the default.tib, select the windows partition 'Unknown Drive I:' withing it, set the destination as 'Unknown Drive E:' and let her rip. Reboot required. Why? This does not involve Win10 on the laptop.
So I move the factory default.tib to the Win 10 desktop, and repeat, same thing.
I try again in disk mode, not parition mode. Same thing.
It would not be so bad if once rebooting it would actually do something but it does nothing.
I even enabled boot recovery manager, and after hitting F11 on boot it does nothing. Perhaps a UEFI thing.
Acronis has gotten worse and worse over the years, and this is likely the tipping point for me.
So I am off to see if I can figure out why the boot manager recovery crap is not working.
But on the face of it, there is not a darn reason the tib can't be restored without leaving windows.
