Client Computer Restore from Virtualized Server Essentials RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I am trying to restore a client computer from its backup. However as the the server is virtualized I am unable to access the USB flash drive to create the recovery key.  Is there a way around this or is the client restore service the option I need?

  • you can create a bootable thumb drive and copy

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Server\Data\ClientRestore\8.100.25984_8.100.25984_6.3.9600.16384\0409-0407-0411

    to it from the server  Or if you client supports pxe boot just do that\

    Thumb drive should be formatted fat32 especially if the client is uefi
