How to Build a USB boot drive

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Laptop 15t-eg000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Looking to find a method of creating a USB boot drive for my new Laptop.  I'm a bit stumped as my 3 year old Spectre came with a Recovery backup on the harddrive and app that prompted me thru creating the USB Boot disk.  This laptop has neither.

Hi:

 

I also checked the support page to see if you could create a bootable USB recovery drive with the cloud recovery tool.

 

I did not see an info link for how to use the cloud recovery tool on the support page for your notebook's model series.

 

However, enter the product number of your notebook in the window at the link below to see if by chance your notebook is supported.

 

Cloud Recovery (cloud-recovery.s3-website-us-west-1.amazonaws.com)

 

If it isn't...

 

What I would do is this...use the free Macrium reflect disk imaging software and save your hard drive's image on a portable hard drive.

 

Under the  Backup at Home section of the webpage...Reflect 7 Free

 

Macrium Software | Reflect Free Edition

 

The software will have you make a bootable USB or DVD 'rescue drive' that you boot from to access the system image stored on the portable hard drive.

 

In case you need to recover the PC, you boot from the rescue drive, access the system image stored on the portable hard drive, and in a few minutes, you will be back in business.
