AOMEI Backupper allows you to create both Windows PE (WinPE) and Linux kernel based bootable disc easily, to be used as rescue media for emergency usage.
To create a bootable disc click the "Utilities" tab, and then select "Create Bootable Media". In the pop-up window, there are two bootable disc types: Windows PE and Linux. We suggest you create a bootable disc based on Windows PE, which provides more flexible and convenient operations than a Linux bootable disc.
1. Select "Windows PE" and click "Next" button. AOMEI Backupper will check whether your system meets the corresponding requirements. If not, you may need to install Windows AIK. Learn more about Windows AIK and how to install it.
2. Click the "Next" button to continue.
3. If you want to use a USB device or CD/DVD as the bootable media, please plug it into the computer in advance. You can also choose "Explore ISO File", which enables you to create an ISO image file. Then, click the "Next" button to create Windows PE bootable disc.
4. Wait for the process to complete and click "Finish".
Creating a Linux bootable disc is similar to the steps of creating Windows PE bootable disc. The only difference is that you can create this kind of bootable disc without meeting any requirement, so there will be no need to download and install Windows AIK. However, as mentioned, a Linux bootable CD might be less compatible.
