Hi all,

just a quick question regarding OC. I have finally managed to install OC 0.5.9 on a comet lake/Z490 board and I have cloned my system on a separate SSD. THe backup drive is a full clone. This includes the EFI partition as well as the OS partition.
Is it recommended to back up the full SDD or only the O partition and leave the EFI boot partition with OC on the main SDD?
The reason I am asking is that tonight I switched on my system and after OC picker it started booting straight to my main OS partition then got the "no go" sign with a 'started image failed". I had this before in the past where I had an SDD with Oc EFI as well as a USB key with OC and also an EFI. The issue was resolved by unplugging the usb key.
Hence I was thinking OC might have been confused between the OC EFIs. I current have my main one and 2 backups (one was a trial for OC)
The above issue was fixed by just rebooting the PC.
Thanks
