win10 not bootable after system restore, MBR missing

Post by dilkie » Mon Nov 09, 2015 7:36 am

Hi Folks,

I'm testing out back and restore solutions to replace my Acronis solution which no longer works since I've upgraded my machine to windows 10.

Backups with r-drive are fine, full and incremental, scheduling, etc. Restore is restoring the partitions correctly but the MBR isn't being written and windows cannot boot. I see no option to fix this on the bootable CD. I've tried a normal restore and a "raw" disk restore.

I was able to make my disk bootable by booting up another vendors restore disk and fixing the MBR.

Just curious if I'm missing something before I decide to purchase a product.

thanks,

-lee

BTW, both graphic modes of the bootable CD crashed on bootup, only the text mode worked (and I'm fine with text mode, prefer it in fact, but it doesn't seem to offer and disk tools like formatting, partitioning, mbr, etc).

I've passed the problem to our developers.
