I build my win10xpe based on Win 10 22h2. I did some modifications to it and everything was working very well.
As there are some softwares that are updated, I replace the old version by the new one on the /Programs. Never had a problem.
Today I've got a new Macrium Reflect version (8.1.7675) and I created a rescue iso from it. From the Rescue iso I mounted the boot.wim and extracted the D:\Winprog\Macrium\MacriumRescue.iso\sources\boot.wim\Program Files\macrium\ folder.
This folder I used to update the \Programs\Macrium Reflect on the win10xpe as I have done many times in the past.
This is the weird thing.
I boot the win10xpe from a USB drive and the USB drive is assigned a letter Y:
I need the drive to be Y: as all the applications on the PE are linked to it.
Then if you launch Macrium Reflect, it changes the win10xpe from Y: to I: and it results that all links are lost.
Never seen a program that changes the drive letter on witch it is installed.
If you change the win10xpe drive letter back to Y: the links works again but the icons remains blank for a while.
Any solution or explanation?
- Update -
I was intrigued because Macrium Reflect, booted from a USB drive, was showing my backups from my backup drive that wasn't connected. So the information came from Macrium Reflect data, stored on my Win 10 drive, where I do have Macrium Reflect installed. Retrieving this data is useless as, if you're launching Macrium Reflect from a USB drive you probably have a problem on the main drive.
I found out that on a computer without Macrium Reflect installed, the drive letter isn't changed.
