I don't know whether I'm at the right place, but I wonder whether someone could clarify the mysteries surrounding the (USB) recovery media for Windows 10. I've read up on creating bootable images for Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems and the steps don't seem too difficult.
However the recovery media I've created for my new Acer Windows 10 notebook seem to contain different files from the fresh installation media. (I've successfully prepared a USB flash drive to restore my system. What I'm trying to do here is create a backup of that flash drive, as I don't want to rely on something as fragile as a USB flas drive only).
So, in build mode, most descriptions of this process with ImgBurn show how on the Advanced > Bootable Disc tab the path to "Boot image" is something that leads to a file called etfsboot.com. There is no such file on the recovery media.
I've got three folders in the root boot, efi and sources. In sources there is a "boot.wim" and in root there is a file BCD. Are those any use? What should I fill in at "Boot image"?
(On a different note, I saw a procedure somewhere that first an image is extracted with the "Extract Boot Image" option on the Bootable Disc tab, and that Image was subsequently fed back into the Boot Image field after that. Does that make any sense. I've got no idea what's happening there. See the anser on superuser referring to ImgBurn here: https://superuser.com/questions/477569/how-can-i-create-a-bootable-dvd-iso-from-a-usb-drive)
Does the lack of a file etfsboot.com have anything to do wit the fact that this is a 64-bit UEFI system?
Thanks for your attention.
