I thought it could just reformat the new drive like that and put the image on new ssd i am replacing.
Because windows looks for the same exact drive to do the re image on, use Macrium reflect instaed.

Again thxs, and yes i have a system image created from win 7 not a third party software. It's on my storage hdd drive. The reason i said repair disk is cause i can boot from that and have before to restore a image. A for instance would be like when my game would not play properly after installing win 10 because it does not support the new os i simply from my repair disc booted up into recovery environment it found my system image of win 7 i had saved and restored my os back exactly like it was before i had installed win 10. So that is what in my minds eye i thought i could do.

I understand now what you all have been telling me and sorry for being ignorant to how it works. I see that i need to use a different program other than windows itself to create a system image. And thank you for helping me out.
