Recently I bought the relect 8 home 4 pack.
My system consists of>
MSI x58 pro-e (ms-7522) i7 cpu 920 2.67ghhz, 24gb
1000gb crucial mx500, 500gb hitachi 7200rpm, 1500gb wd usb
Back panel usb connections- ms mouse, ms keyboard, hp printer, wd mass storage hdd.
I successfully created a full backup image of the crucial ssd. I then created the rescue disc using the suggested WindowsRE environment. The disc is created with a dvd/cd recorder. I utilized dvd-r media with a Lite-on ihas224. Testing the created disc was okay but no mouse or keyboard function exists.
However, after creating another disc with the same issue, I fooled around a bit and discover that unplugging and inserting the usb mouse cable enables mouse function of the rescue package. The same is true with the keyboard usb cable.
I have moved the two usb cables to different back panel ports individually (no device connected in the side by side ports).
USB legacy device is enabled in BIOS. Consistently, the rescue media works as described. And I get the mouse and keyboard function by removing and inserting the respective usb connector. Although it seems the recue media will function in a crisis, anything but a perfect boot with expected functionality is highly desired. Please help.
Let me add to the mystery>.
I installed Reflect 8 on my wife's computer.
ASUS p7p55d-e i5 cpu 760 2.80ghz, 8gb
1000gb crucial mx500, 1000gb samsung 7200rpm, 1000gb wd usb

The rescue media works as expected with mouse and keyboard function. There is no need to touch back panel usb connections.
I am nearly 66 years old and have had some eye problems (retinal detachments and repairs) in both eyes. And other procedures required after detachments to get me back to best vision. My vision is good, but I may have missed something. I used to be a repair technician and supervisor building single board computers with passive backplanes. My first computer was a dx386 with dos 4.0. I used to run everything from dosshell and batch files. Things have changed.
Thank you for your time and input.
