  1. USB Image Clone?


    This might be a simple question for some, but I am stomped on this one.

    Is it possible to create an image of a PC and use that to Clone it into other PCs, same brand, same specs.
    We do a lot of Terminals and take it to clients. But every once in a while one of them will not boot, for whatever reason.

    I would like to be able to take a that image into a USB, boot from it, and load it back into said Terminal.

    Currently using Windows 10 on the terminals. Is Macrium reflect able to do something like this? Any guidance is appreciated!

    :)

    Do window 10 offer a clone image feature for backup system?

    Hi, oemSoft

    I am sorry to tell you that there is no built-in clone feature in Windows 10. If you just create a system image backup, you can follow the steps below to create a system image in Windows 10.

    Step 1. Open Control Panel, go to System and Security > File History, then click System Image Backup at the lower-left corner. Or you can directly type backup and restore in the search box and select it from the search result list.

    Step 2. Connect the USB drive to your computer and select it as the destination path, then click Next.

    Step 3. Confirm your backup settings and click Start Backup.

    However, if you want to clone your system directly, you can choose a third-party software like AOMEI Backupper. This is a professional clone software that allows you to

    clone system
    to different places such as external hard drive, USB drive or Network, etc. without booting problems. With it, you also can clone the entire disk to HDD or SSD.

    cloning / imaging


    As long as the thumb drive has enough capacity for the image or clone.
    I suggest using Macrium Reflect as it uses compression when making images.

    USB Image Clone?

    SSD not booting Windows 10 after cloning from HDD.


    Hi there

    Ok copying has failed so now try the Imaging method - OK it's an extra step but I've always found it works.

    Create a bootable Free Macrium USB and boot from it to create the image and restore. Use Rufus to create a bootable USB from the ISO.

    People often suggest cloning - but I've found in spite of the extra work Imaging always works.

    Do include the windows reserved system partition in the image and ensure the boot partition is active.

    Cheers
