  • Restore partitions or vloumes under WinPE:

If the PC fails to boot or has been crashed, you need to create a WinPE bootable media with AOMEI Backupper and boot your PC into WinPE to run the partitions or volumes restore.

Please follow the steps below:

1. Please create a WinPE bootable media using AOMEI Backupper or AOMEI PE Builder on another healthy computer.

2. Then, insert the bootable media into the failed computer and boot from it. ( You may need to change the boot sequence and Boot Mode in the PC's BIOS (Also referred to as UEFI).

3. When the PC boots up successfully, AOMEI Backupper (already installed on the bootable device) will run automatically allowing you to start the partitions or volumes recovery just as the a process under Windows.

  • If you regularly backup your disks, each backup will generate an image at a given time, so there may be multiple time points to choose from.

  • The destination disk/partition will be totally overwritten. If the destination contains any important data, it should first be copied to another location.

  • If any applications are running on the destination partition/disk, AOMEI Backupper will require you to restart computer and execute the restore operation in "Restart Mode".
