I have some quesries about macrium reflect-

1) Is it possible to restore a system image containing  c partition(windows partition) if the backed up system image file is in c drive(Source)

 

2)  Are there advantages of having a rescue media on usb as compared to booting directly to win PE environment?

1)  If I understand your question correctly, the answer is no. The image must be on a separate partition or drive. How could an image overwrite itself when it must overwrite the original image?

2) The advantage is that the USB is bootable, and much easier. Plus the fact that the rescue media does not ONLY have PE environment on it, there are other algorithms that scan for the Reflect image, etc.

What one can do:  have MR6 or MR7 insert itself into the boot menu as a "second OS choice".  Then, if invoked, one can restore an image or images from any external media onto any internal hard-drive and/or partition(s).

That's essentially the same thing; you would still need an external source for the image to restore from. The boot menu would still have to point to an installed boot program externally; the boot option menu in and of itself will not provide the boot algorithms.

The only advantage of the MR6or7 being in the boot menu:  just one more way of accessing a full image on an attached external device.  :)
