Resore a backup to an external disk

Before I wanted to reinstall  Windows 10, I made a backup. The reinstall went wrong - now I can't even get into the BIOS. Can I now load the backup to the removed HD? Maybe the computer will start again when I install the HD again.... Thanks for tips.


  • You can always get into the BIOS/UEFI. No program can prevent that.
    If you made a backup image with Backupper, you may restore that image to a disk.
    Backupper WinPE USB:
    Add custom drivers, such as NVMe, if necessary. Does not work with some monitors.
    Aomei WinPE Builder USB:
    Best for PCs from or before 2019 x32x64, includes Partition Assistant, Backupper, Recuva, 7zip, OSF Mount, CPU-Z, Bootice, DiskMgmt.msc. Supports x64 portable apps. Does not support any additional drivers, such as some internal M.2 NVMe disks.
