MSI BurnRecovery ISO files
« on: 20-August-16, 04:54:36 »

I made a backup from my WS72 6QI-026US using MSI BurnRecovery and selected ISO image.
Now I want to use this backup and tried to burn them on DVD but one of ISO images requires DVD 9.
I tried to make a bootable flash from first ISO using RUFUS, the system starts up and shows a window of recovery message then restarts in a loop.

How can I transfer or convert the ISO recovery files to USB flash?

That is not the correct way to use Burnrecovery media.  You need to rebuild a USB recovery media by MSI burnrecovery again, otherwise it can't work if you transfer ISO file to a bootable USB.

Check out these FAQ and build a USB recovery media.

Thank you for your reply and the references.
At this point I just installed Windows 7 on the system and can not backup Windows 10 on USB. But the new version of CAD software that I use will be compatible with Windows 10 in 1st quarter 2017 and I want to switch to Win 10 then.

Is there any utility that converts BurnRecovery ISO images to USB flash?
For Windows installation images there are several utilities like "Windows 7 USB DVD Download tool" from Microsoft and "RUFUS", but none of them work with BurnRecovery ISO images.

hossein.g, Burn Recovery only creates Recovery Files for a Windows 10 install.  Found that out the hard way myself.

But the good news is that you can Download Genuine Windows 10 Insallation Media directly from Microsoft.

You shouldn't need a Key to install as well, as you should have an SLP (System Locked Preinstallation) Key in the BIOS / UEFI.

Hope that you find this information useful, good luck.

Hi Both,

One thing I have to remind you is that not only the DPK key in BIOS is required to activate WIN10, you also needs to use OEM preinstalled Windows system, therefore the OS will not activate if you install the ISO file from Microsoft.  Retail version is different from OEM version.

Hi runningman,
So I have to use the backup that I have.
Any suggestion for loading ISO to USB flash?

runningman, the SLP Key will activate a downloaded Win 10 Installation Media.  Just as OEM.

When I downloaded a USB Install Media, I was not prompted for a Key during setup.  And as it is valid Win 10 it will show as activated when Windows loads.

I think you can still try the solution hatandclogs41 suggested, and share us your test result, thanks.

Microsoft “MediaCreationToolx64.exe” tool.
