Hi there
Cloning requires using a whole disk !!!. Also this isn't very good if you want to create a physical version (i.e on a Real PC) from a Virtual Machine. Create Image and then restore seems the best way to do this especially if your VM is on an AMD machine and you are restoring to an INTEL laptop.

No ‐ Macrium Reflect allows you to clone a partition to spare unallocated space.

If you want to clone to an empty internal hdd, you would need to boot from a Reflect Rescue drive if only one internal drive (other drive would have to be mounted as usb hard drive).
