I have a new system upgrades to Windows 11 pro. Then I installed Macrium Reflect and made it dual booting (win 11 and Macrium on Windows PE) . I do that always to have a simple and secure way to image the system drive. But the computer won't boot at all, The icon of HP wolf Security stays there forever. So I have two questions:
1 - how to pass this blockade, and get the machine booted anyway
2 - when the machine is running again: how can I adapt Wolf Security to allow for dual boot ??
The machine does not boot from a USB with Windows PE on it either.
If I hit F10 upon restarting, the "automatic repair" begins, but it solves nothing
But with F10 I got to the Start menu and the BIOS setup - But I have no idea what to change there!! I picked "restore all settings as from producer" but to no avail.
Thanks, for any advice for I'm completely stuck now
On advice of telephone support, I did a complete reset of the computer, Then the computer booted.
Very strangely, it booted as a dual boot with Macrium Reflect. But as I tried later on to make Reflect to create a Windows PE boot, it did not work. I had to delete the dual boot menu. Ten I restarted and Macrium Reflect made a dual boot menu and it functions. I have no idea why it functions, as I had no idea why it did not on Saturday.
Still this machine (HP Z1 G8 ) has a strange and unpredictable security policy. E.g. I can't install a Firefox browser. The installation is cut of before the end and Firefox starts, but does not function at all.
I have to phone them again?

Insert or attach the rescue media (CD, DVD, or USB stick).
Power on the computer.
Select the Macrium Reflect System Recovery option and hit enter.
In the Macrium Reflect main window, select the Restore tab at the top left.
Click on the backup image you wish to restore.
Click Restore Image.
