  • You can use imagex which is built into windows or you can also use gimagex which may make it a bit easier:

  • Hi,

    If you have backup your original system before, I think you could convert it to the original status.

    ImageX is used to capture reference PC’s image. It’s a useful tool to capture image with .wim format. For the detailed information about ImageX, you could refer to the links below:

    At the same time, ImageX is not provided with separate download by MS. It’s integrated in WAIK. So you need to download WAIK then install it. You could download the latest version of WAIK below:
