The following email is from a user of ours who was asking about backing up/restoring
system from bootable media:
Thank you so much for your prompt reply.
Unfortunately, my system has crashed already and I can’t even access into Windows
now. But I do have created a system image. Is it possible for me to restore the
system without accessing into it? Like in Win PE. Because seems to me, that’s the
only option left for me right now.
If you encounter the same problem above some day, you can find the solution with the
help of AOMEI PE Builder in which AOMEI Backupper, AOMEI Partition Assistant have
all been included.
Builder offers Windows users a possibility to create bootable media that not
only provides an access into Windows PE, but also provides two powerful hard disk
partition management tools: AOMEI Backupper and AOMEI Partition Assistant.
AOMEI Backupper is an reliable and easy-to-use Windows backup freeware. It allows the
user to backup system, partitions and the entire disk. But the awkward thing is
system backup image often seems useless because the user cannot even access into
Windows to use the system restore function in AOMEI Backupper after system crash.
Fortunately, this time we can launch and use AOMEI Backupper in Windows PE with the
help of AOMEI PE Builder. AOMEI PE Builder can help the user to create a Windows
7-like environment in which Desktop, Disk Management, AOMEI Backupper, AOMEI
Partition Assistant are all included. Then the user can put this ISO into CD/DVD or
Once the image file of the system is created in AOMEI Backupper, we can download and
install AOMEI PE Builder then.
Launch AOMEI PE Builder. After you agreed with the terms and conditions, select the
device that you want to save the ISO to. This ISO could be CD/DVD and USB device.
The ISO requires more than 1GB storage space because it’s the original Windows PE
plus AOMEI Partition Assistant and AOMEI Backupper. Once the device is decided,
click on Next. The bootable media will be created in a short time.
If you get bad luck one day and your Windows system is unable to boot, you can
use the prepared bootable media to restore the system.
Go to BIOS and change the boot device to CD/DVD or USB device. Thus we access Windows
Double click AOMEI Backupper on desktop. In AOMEI Backupper’s main interface,
In backup list, click on “Path” button to locate the system image manually. The
follow the wizard to complete the restore task.
