I have a system image saved on an external hard drive that I wish to apply to a new laptop. The problem is that the machine has no optical drive. Using the Recovery Options in Windows 10 to recover a system image will ask for a System Repair Disc. Unfortunately I don't have an external cd drive either.
I've tried to create a Recovery Drive on a second external hard drive and boot from that (http://www.howtogeek.com/131907/how-to-create-and-use-a-recovery-drive-or-system-repair-disc-in-windows-8/) but going through that process still ultimately asks for a Repair Disc.
Any tips on how to get around this so I can recover from the image short of buying an external optical drive?
