Hi,

At last I am replacing my old Motherboard and CPU (Intel H55 Chipset) for a more recent MoBo and CPU (Intel Z97 Chipset).
The rest of the hardware remains the same, case included, so my rig will consist, among other stuff, of the following:

New MoBo and CPU (Intel Z97 Chipset)
One SATA SSD (C. drive) containing Windows 10Home x64
One SATA 7200 rpm HD (D: drive) on which I have among other stuff a recent Macrium Image of the complete SSD (C.drive)
One Optical drive (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM) and...
One USB device containing Windows PE 10.0 Rescue Media


After putting together everything and double checking all connections, I will select to boot from the USB device containing Windows PE 10.0 Rescue Media and restore the image located in D: onto  the  SSD  drive overwriting all the partitions included of course,  the C: one with the Windows 10 operating system.

After the restore operation finishes and before rebooting, I will use the "Redeploy Restored Image to new hardware" option (restore tab) and insert the DVD which comes along with the new Motherboard, directing Redeploy to it so it can find the necessary NEW drivers for the new Z97 Chipset.  After redeploy finishes, then I´ll reboot the PC and hopefully, it will boot fine with the new MoBo and CPU. ...so far so good!

But I have a couple of questions:
  • Is it  MANDATORY  to restore the recently created Image from D: to C: before the redeploy process?
  • Can´t I simply boot from the  Windows PE rescue USB and just go to the redeploy option and skip the image restore process completely?
I don´t understand why should I restore the image located on D:  if I am NOT replacing my SSD ( C: )  for a new one and also, if I just recently created the image!

...isn´t the same exact data contained on the SSD ( C: )  the one that is copied to the Macrium image on D: that I just created minutes ago? 
...so what is the purpose of doing the restore process IF everything on the SSD ( C: ) will remain the same as if I never did it (the restore process)?

Thank you very much for your understanding and hopefully, despite my very limited experience BUT with your support, I will be able to perform this procedure without many problems.

Greetings

Hi Diazruanova

Thanks for posting.

Can´t I simply boot from the Windows PE rescue USB and just go to the redeploy option and skip the image restore process completely?


Yes  you can. There's no need to restore, you can just run ReDeploy on your existing file system.


Kind Regards
