As for the answers about “why need system restore” and “preparations before system restore”, you can refer to the last tutorial “How to do system restore”. This article mainly discusses how to restore system with AOMEI Backupper to avoid system reinstallation when Windows can not boot normally.
If Windows can not boot, that means, we can not run the restore software on Windows. Then, we need a bootable CD, which can help to restore system by running AOMEI Backupper from a disc. Before carrying out the operations, we need to make a bootable CD first. For detailed tutorials, you can refer to “How to make a bootable CD”.
First, insert the bootable CD into the CD driver, and when starting the computer, set CD-ROM as the first boot device in BIOS settings. As for the question about how to access BIOS, you can refer to the motherboard instructions. In general, you can access BIOS of desktop computers by continuously pressing the button “Delete”. The BIOS of laptops can be accessed by pressing “F2” when starting the computer. There will be prompt information when the computer starts, by which you can easily set the first boot device. For more detailed operations, you can refer to “How to Set BIOS to Boot from CDROM”.
When the computer has been successfully booted from CD-ROM, AOMEI Backupper in the disc will run automatically. And then you can complete the operations of system restore easily. The detailed operating steps are as follows:
First, enter the BIOS, and set the CD-ROM Drive as the first boot device. And then press “Enter”, the AOMEI Backupper will start automatically.
Second, click “Restore” option, and then click “Path” item to browse a path so as to select the system image file to restore. Click “Next” to continue.
Third, in the pop-up window, select “Yes” to commit the system restore.
Fifth, select a partition to restore the operating system, and then click “Next”. Here we set Disk 2 as the example.
