andrew: I don't have answers to either of your questions.
No prob...I probably should find Macrium's forums but I've not gotten around to it...

I was able to get a bit of answer to using MBR because it occurred to me that the DVD rescue disk I created probably defaulted to MBR if I had the DVD in the optical drive while booting--vs. using F8 to override the boot order and then choosing the "UEFI" option from the boot menu list. Sure enough...you could tell immediately that it was not UEFI action and it was both slow and sort of clunky. My external drive was recognized but as drive "D" (vs. the "V" I had changed it to).

I don't know if it was just a coincidence but I had problems dismounting the external drive after using the DVD/MBR approach and had to fiddle with things a bit. I decided to create a WinPE5.0 version on DVD and I'm going to test using that via having the DVD in the optical drive on boot and see if PE5.0 works a little "better" than DVD WinPE3.1.

I'm getting closer to actually trying the restore process...
