Solved Error: "To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore...."


No.
SIW2 was offering to review your bcd enum output if you post them as a text file.
Take up that offer. SIW2 is highly competent.

Why EaseUS see OS disk ?
I think it must have the rst drivers ( not the same as nvme drivers )

If your easeus boot media was made using your winre.wim, you could try running system restore from the easeus boot media.

at cmd prompt type:
x:\recovery\recenv.exe


To create their boot media:
Most of those kind of imaging/partitioning programs will grab winre.wim, add critical drivers scrounged from the current installation and add their own program files and a winpeshl.ini to launch their shel.

Shouldnt be hard to integrate the drivers yourself.

While it is possible to copy winre using the recovery sequence, a simpler way is:

reagentc /disable ( that should move winre.wim to %windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim )

remove the attributes,

attrib -S -H -R %windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim

create an empty folder with a sensible name,

md %systemdrive%\mount

then use dism to mount winre.wim,

dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"%windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"%systemdrive%\mount"

integrate the drivers, ( assuming your drivers are in a folder c:\winpe-drivers )

dism /IMAGE:"%systemdrive%\mount" /ADD-DRIVER /DRIVER:"c:\winpe-drivers" /RECURSE /ForceUnsigned

unmount commit,

dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"%systemdrive%\mount" /commit

and finally

attrib +S +H +R %windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim

reagentc /enable


if you want to be fancy you could clean up the image a bit before commit and optimize after saving, but it not essentail

5 minute job at most

1) Media rescue of EaseUA created from inside EaseUS.
2) Which of 2 directories of the drivers is the right ?
3) Why i have installed all RST drivers from the product site and it still shows Microsoft's 2006 driver disk at device manager ?
4) I tried to fix MBR with Macrium Reflect and it says it did. But after i take an error at winRE about damaged BCD.
5) Then i rebuilded BCD.
6) Do you mean i can restore from a Restore point via EaseUS rescue USB with x:\recovery\recenv.exe ?

A summary until now :
1) Restore points from WinRE dont work , only from Windows.
2) Image backups with the windows program , can create but cant restore (see previous posts for details).
3) WinRE dont see the OS disk.
4) EaseUS can create and restore images. Also it sees the OS disk.
5) AOMEI and Macrium can create image and see the OS disk. I didnt test the image restore.

please read the posts

integrate the drivers, ( assuming your drivers are in a folder c:\winpe-drivers )

dism /IMAGE:"%systemdrive%\mount" /ADD-DRIVER /DRIVER:"c:\winpe-drivers" /RECURSE /ForceUnsigned

you need to give it the path to your driver folder

You save my as* ! You save 9 months of work at this installation !

Now work all : restore points , image backups of Windows , the OS disk is accesible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The f* stupids of M* coudnt put a driver , while EaseUS , AOMEI , Macrium , and all the others (?) could.
(If you ever go to Greece and you need something tell me thachaldouATgmail.com.).

Symptosis : i have 11 generation Intel CPU ! (thats for the other .............. victims).

Shouldnt be hard to integrate the drivers yourself.

While it is possible to copy winre using the recovery sequence, a simpler way is:

reagentc /disable ( that should move winre.wim to %windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim )

remove the attributes,

attrib -S -H -R %windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim

create an empty folder with a sensible name,

md %systemdrive%\mount

then use dism to mount winre.wim,

dism /Mount-Image /ImageFile:"%windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim" /index:1 /MountDir:"%systemdrive%\mount"

integrate the drivers, ( assuming your drivers are in a folder c:\winpe-drivers )

dism /IMAGE:"%systemdrive%\mount" /ADD-DRIVER /DRIVER:"c:\winpe-drivers" /RECURSE /ForceUnsigned

unmount commit,

dism /Unmount-Image /MountDir:"%systemdrive%\mount" /commit

and finally

attrib +S +H +R %windir%\system32\recovery\winre.wim

reagentc /enable


if you want to be fancy you could clean up the image a bit before commit and optimize after saving, but it not essentail

5 minute job at most
