Cannot restore client from USB error "access denied" when trying to start client from USB device. SBS essetials 2011 and WHS 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I can not restore a client PC from an restore client USB stick. I have this problem both on WHS2011 and SBS essentials2011.

    When i tried to start the pc from the USB drive i get an error "access denied". The problem is not the USB drive. When i use a bootable USB drive with an OS the drive works fine. Annyone an idea?

    OS client = WIndows 8

    server OS = WHS 2011 or SBS Essentials 2011

    Annyone an idea?

  • Did you create the USB recovery drive using the Dashboard? Was it created before or after you installed the GPT / UEFI Hotfix on your server ( required to back up W8 assuming it is a UEFI installation)? Perhaps recreating the USB Boot drive and trying again might work?
