  • Yes you can restore BMR backup to alternate hardware. Only Requirement is if you are restoring a 32 Bit OS backup then you need to use 32 bit Setup/Install media/WINRE media to restore it. BMR recovery is very efficient, its even faster than backup, it uses the disk/network to its maximum available speeds.
