Windows 10: Does Cloning or Imaging with Macrium copy the boot menu? Solved

    Does Cloning or Imaging with Macrium copy the boot menu?


    I recently decided to add Macrium Reflect to my boot menu (for convenience) and it had me wondering...If I cloned or made an image of my computer and copied it to a new machine, is the boot menu retained?

    Meaning...would the option to boot into Macrium transfer over to the new PC or will I have to create it again? I don't see a MReflect partition on my disk but I do believe the BCD store is saved on the C: drive.

    Yes a disk/SSD Image is just that an exact Image of that disk/SSD Clone is the same it copies your disk/SSD exactly the way it is to the new disk SSD with the exception that if your going larger or smaller you can adjust your C: partition to use the extra space or shrink the C partition to fit the new disk.
