Cloning a partition or Windows OS using a bootable disk

You can use a bootable disk to create a clone of your disk partition or Windows OS without needing to be logged on to the computer. This might seem a bit complicated but it is quite easy. First, download and install the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) along with the Windows PE add-on for the ADK. You can download the ADK setup from here. Make sure that you have select both the  Deployment Tools and Windows Preinstallation Environment(Windows PE) while installing the ADK.

Once that is done, on the iSumsoft Cloner app, click on Make Boot Disk. It will then start making a PE (Pre-installation Environment).

Once that is done, restart the computer and go to the BIOS settings. The shortcut key to enter the BIOS menu should be mentioned on the monitor screen while the computer is being restarted. If not, then refer to your motherboard manual. In the BIOS settings, set the boot option to the USB device. This will then restart the computer and you will be prompted with the iSumsoft Cloner menu. From here, you can use the previous methods to make a copy/backup of your Windows system or partition.
