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:
It generated a .WIM file with 16 Gb.
dism.exe /Capture-Image /ImageFile:D:\Image_of_Windows_10.wim /CaptureDir:C:\ /Name:Windows_10 /compress fast
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?
4- After using DISM to apply will windows 10 boot and work like a charm?
dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:D:\Image_of_Windows_10.wim /Index:1 /ApplyDir:C:\
5- Do I have to configure the boot with BCDBOOT?
That's all folks, please someone could be kind and answer me?
