    Win10 Image Backup

    If I move the image into another folder, will the "recovery" program be able to find it if/when it comes time to use it? I've looked using a partitioning program and see a 15 MB fat16 partition labeled "DellUtilities". A second partition is almost 40 GB ntfs labeled "RECOVERY". I don't know if the second is left over from Win7 or if the Win10 upgrade put it there. Is there any way to tell?

    Win10 Image Backup

    I want to create an image backup of a Win10 system that was upgraded from Win 7. I have opened "Backup and Restore" in the control panel and selected "Create Image Backup". I have also created a folder on my external harddrive for the purpose. While setting it up for the image, I find two curious things: 1. It does not find my folder on the external harddrive, but "wants" to put the image in root (I want to separate it from other backups). How can I get it to save into the folder I want? 2. My image will be of the C drive, but it insists that "RECOVERY" be included. I may be wrong, but my impression is that the upgrade from 7 to 10 did not change the win7 recovery partition. Am I correct and is this the same as the "RECOVERY" that will be included in the image?

    nLite shutdown during integration

    Thanks for the advice. I think I'll not concern myself with that one file.

    nLite shutdown during integration

    Yeh. I kinda figured something like that. I guess the question is: should I be concerned about it? As I said, the resulting disk booted and XP installed OK. Is there a work-a-round to get that file to integrate? The file doesn't seem to be of much consequence. However, without making a huge issue of it, I'm shooting for sort of an XP archive disk and it won't be complete without it.

    nLite shutdown during integration

    I'm a first time poster here. I'm not real technically astute. Mostly just follow directions. I hope this hasn't been answered already. My search found lots of questions/answers regarding shutdowns but nothing specific to my issue. I have successfully made a slipstream of WinXP sp3 with just critical updates and thought I would try one with all updates. I downloaded the latest update file from WUD. Starting with my original XP sp1 disk and nLite, I inserted sp3 and the entire update list in the appropriate places. I made very few changes in the tasks area; inserted my product key, deleted foriegn languages and keyboards, and insterted time zone and region information. Nothing in tweaks. The integration went smoothly for a while including the WMP11 updates. Soon thereafter, a message came up that said "windowsmedia11-kb928788_x86-intl.exe-DLL initialization failed" and a second message that said that nLite needed to shut down yes/no. I clicked OK for the first and No for the second and the integration proceeded as it should. I was able to make an ISO and a bootable disk. It loaded onto a virtual machine OK and seems to run OK except it does seem to run somewhat slower that the version with only critical updates. According to Microsoft, kb928788 corrects an issue in WMP11 that might occur under certain circumstances. So, I'm not sure if is a signifacant loss or not. Also, if it is an update for WMP11, why didn't it get integrated by the WMP11 integrator like the others. Maybe that was the problem?
