In a Scenario that your Windows laptop got crashed and it’s not booting up. So what can you do now? Are you try to repair it? I don’t think I’ll try to repair the OS as I know that can make things worst sometimes. I suggest using Veeam Endpoint Backup and Recovery media to restore the laptop/desktop operating system with all installed apps and data.

First of all, we need to take Operating System backup using File-Based Backup and Select Operating System, as I mentioned in my previous post. In the following example, you can see the File Based (Operating System Veeam Endpoint) backup completed in 10 minutes for the dell laptop.

Better to select Include hardware drivers from this computer option.
