    question, do you have Linux Subsystem installed? for whatever reason, using windows backup tools to make an image of windows system with Linux Subsystem installed and the Ubuntu system downloaded and installed the image fails because of some sort of failed permissions in Windows to handle the appdata path for the Linux system.

    now, if that is not your issue, then just make an image of your windows system using dism capture-image or gimagex from a winpe environment??? that would be really easy...

    also, what are you wanting to do? just make a backup? seems like you're not giving all the info... what was the reason you were trying to system restore in the first place???--which no offense but you shouldn't be using it for real backup purposes anyway, it's garbage

    No, I've only 'Windows' installed in the machine.

    Can WINXPE create a system image from the boot disk? If possible then would try that.

    Yes, I'm trying to do a system image backup using Windows built in backup. I've given all the information known to me, in my OP. Failed system restore point creation prevents the windows as well as the macrium to make a system image backup.

    use winpe iso, winpe usb, set up for mbr or uefi depending on your system, and boot that and use dism to capture your windows partition, done.

    have no idea what WINXPE is, but sounds third party which is COMPLETELY unnecessary.

    I don't know how to create Windows WINPE. After many trial I finished completing this WINXPE ISO and made it bootable, saw the Windows like interface with a windows recovery and other tools including the free macrium.
    The other technical part you mentioned is way beyond my imagination.:D
    Thank you! 'll try that and see if it can create an image.

    Do you think your ISO support my above mentioned system spec ?
    If yes, I will download the ISO and make a bootable disk.

    Sorry, you got me wrong.
    Your iso supports 64bit but my system is 32bit but it has 64bit architecture , therefore I asked you "will it support my 32 bit OS" if I make a bootable disk?

    P.S I've made that 3rd party WINXPE in 32bit windows but it support both 64 and 32bit. I've tested it.

    doesn't matter, dude. your installed system whether x86 or x64 has no bearing of whether it will boot an x64 winpe or not.

    and you can make an image of an x64 install from an x86 pe, doesn't matter. just use iso i uploaded. too many factors to explain for why...

    Hi,
    I'm sorry to say that your iso file failed to boot my system 3/4times.
    Reason may be (from my point of view):
    My system is bios (legacy) and your file is efi.
    I burnt a cd, it failed to boot.
    I formatted an usb drive then use rufus to make a bootable drive (MBR) again it failed to boot only stuck at Windows logo.

    i can boot that iso fine in 5 virtual machines, and 6 actual devices, desktops and laptops, efi and legacy, very varied setups, so...

    what is your exact device? that might help.

    you need to do a full shutdown no matter what it is--turn of fast boot in bios if available, turn off fast boot in Windows power control, power off device, unplug it if desktop, pull the batter if laptop, and hold the power button for 30 seconds and discharge all power.
    also remove all ram modules and reinstall them. then re-power it.
