So, my plan was to restore just the MSR (+MBR), to reset the Disk ID in the MBR so that it was consistent with Macrium's Disk Image - thus overcoming the XML Validation error message, and enabling me to continue adding to the current Macrium Image backup set. Sad to say, it didn't work.
Instead, the Windows Boot Manager complained with error status code 0xc000000e - "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible". (Thinking about it, I had gone through the "Add Recovery Boot Option ..." process. Maybe this put the C: disk Windows System out of step with the backed-up MSR/MBR?). Fortunately, after rebooting from my Macrium Rescue disk, Macrium's "Fix Windows Boot Problems" process (with all Boot Code options selected), sorted out whatever was wrong with the MBR / MSR, and I was then able to reboot successfully back into Windows.
I don't like not knowing what the problem was, but didn't really want to experiment further with what is once again a working system. So instead, I have addressed my space problem, have rendered the Backup Definition file functional again, by just respecifying the backup's contents, and have started a new full backup set. And all, at the moment, seems to be well ...
Thanks as before,
