    Restore system image without system repair disc


    Hello.


    I've created a system image and was trying to restore it. I did not have a blank disc, so I did not create a system repair disk.


    I got into Advanced startup > Troubleshoot > Advanced options > System Image Recovery


    After selecting the system image, the computer asks for a system repair disc, which I do not have.


    As far as I know, this used to be the only way to restore a system image without a system repair disc, is it still possible now?

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand your inconvenience. We will assist you with it.



    What is system image?

    A system image is an exact copy of a drive. By default, a system image includes the drives required for Windows to run. It also includes Windows and your system settings, programs, and files. You can use a system image to restore the contents of your computer
    if your hard disk or computer ever stops working. When you restore your computer from a system image, it's a complete restoration—you can't choose individual items to restore, and all of your current programs, system settings, and files are replaced with the
    contents of the system image.

    What is system repair disc?

    A Repair Disk is a bootable disk that is used to boot the computer if there is a problem and you are not able to boot into windows. The System Repair Disk can also be used to replace the windows installation with the System Image backup.

    I suggest you to refer the follow Microsoft help article to turn on file history.

    Note: The steps for Windows 8/8.1 applies to Windows 10.

    Hope it helps. Do let us know if your issue is resolved. For any further query, feel free to contact us.

    Restore system image without system repair disc

    Using system Image external hard drive or system repair disc.

    Could some one give me step by step instructions on how to use either a system repair disc or a system image on a external hard drive. My computer has been acting up, losing files, documents, music and pictures, right clicking on start button will not produce context menu, and clicking on edge does not open it. I created a system image and a repair disc a month or so ago, but do not know how to use them to see if my problems could be fixed. Also, can't I just reinstall windows? How do I do that without a CD. None came with the computer; Thanks for any help.
