Clonezilla – Clone Windows 10 from single SSD to New Raid 0 SSD Volume

Boot up and create your raid array

Boot into Clonezilla and get to command line :cry: unfortunately you can’t clone from disk to raid in clonezilla interface, however we can do it from the command Line!

Basic steps are as follows. Replace raidarray with the name of your raid array.

  • Initialize raid array with dmraid -ay or kpartx -a /dev/mapper/raidarray
  • use gdisk to backup structure of source drive
  • Write gdisk backup to raid array
  • use ntfsclone to clone to raid array
  • ntfsclon –overwrite /dev/mapper/raidarray /dev/sdSOURCEDRIVE

Videos flashing and resizing on Internet Explorer

Had a problem with a NVR not displaying cameras correctly in the web interface in Internet Explorer. The issue appears to be something wrong with how it is interacting with Windows scaling.

To resolve the issue you can set the scaling to 100%

or

If the monitor is a HDPI, set it to a 1920×1080 resolution with scaling at 100%.

Recovery, Your PC/Device needs to be repaired

File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD
Error code: 0x000000f 
The Boot Configuration data for your PC is missing or contains errors.

The following notes may be of some help when trying to resolve the above error. Think the primary issue had to do with cloning a GPT drive to a RAID array that was using MBR. So think everything worked after converting it to GPT

All the commands are/were run from a recovery Command Prompt

Convert MBR disk to GPT

After running the following command the EFI directory was automatically created.
The command is supposed to be non destructive. Change the disk to whichever disk your trying to change to gpt.

gpt2efi /validate /disk:0

Other commands

If running the above command did not work then you may give the following command a try. Change the drive names where appropriate.

bcdboot c:\windows /s s: /f UEFI /v

You may be able to get away with just using

cdboot c:\windows

You can check if the above worked by seeing if it created any files in the directory, if new efi partition is S:, then from a command prompt run

S:
dir

Commands for recreating the EFI partition (WARNING! MAY DESTROY DATA!)

diskpart
list disk
select disk # Note: Select the disk where you deleted the EFI System partition.
list partition
create partition efi
format quick fs=fat32
list partition
list volume


Windows 10 – How to “fully” shutdown

Windows 10 by default does a hybrid shutdown which is supposed to make it quicker to start back up.

To fully shutdown you can hold the Shift key down while clicking the shutdown button.

Side note. A Restart will do a full shutdown before starting back up.
