    Using Dism to capture and apply windows 10 images to a partition


    Hi guys, so a few days ago my windows 10 crashed so I had to format and reinstall windows 7 then upgrade to windows 10, a hard work to do. So I started to search about how to capture the image of C: where the windows 10 is running and I found Dism. Now I have a lot of questions about it, let me start with the capture of C: as an image.wim.

    1- Does dism Capture-Image works for windows 10?

    I used the following comand to capture a image:
    Code:
    dism.exe /Capture-Image /ImageFile:D:\Image_of_Windows_10.wim /CaptureDir:C:\ /Name:Windows_10 /compress fast
    It generated a .WIM file with 16 Gb.

    2- Is FAST option better than MAXIMUM? Or should I use NONE instead?

    3- Now with the image of the c: stored in hard drive, if my windows 10 crashes, is this how I should recover it? applying the image file .WIM or should I format the partition first?

    Code:
    dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:D:\Image_of_Windows_10.wim /Index:1 /ApplyDir:C:\
    4- After using DISM to apply will windows 10 boot and work like a charm?

    5- Do I have to configure the boot with BCDBOOT?

    Code:
    C:\Windows\System32\bcdboot C:\Windows
    That's all folks, please someone could be kind and answer me?

    Here's the main question...

    If your Windows 10 crashes, how do you plan on running the DISM command to restore it?

    A much easier solution highly recommended by myself and a lot of others on this forum is to use Macrium Refelct Free to create a backup image and a rescue USB/DVD.

    To capture the image I had to use a bootable cd, so to apply it I would use the same cd, an instalation mídia of the Windows.

    And I'll put the .wim image at the partition RECOVERY, the one the came with the Dell notebook. So I could use it in the future and I will burn it too
