Of course, you can. You can use the EaseUS to create a system image and then restore it to another computer with a few clicks.

EaseUS Todo Backup is a professional and reliable backup and restore program for Windows 11/10/8/7. It can help to restore the system image to a new computer without reinstalling Windows operating system.

Before the system transfer, you need to prepare the following issues to ensure a smooth system migration:

  • Ensure the new PC supports the same boot mode as the old one
  • Download and install EaseUS Todo Backup on both the old and new PC with the same account
  • Prepare a new empty external hard drive that has enough storage space, and connect it to the old PC

When all these preparations are done, you can start to create the system image:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Todo Backup and click "Create Backup" on the home page, and then choose "Select backup content".

Step 2. Select "OS" as the backup source.

Step 3. Choose a location where you want to store the system backup. (Choose the external hard drive as the target disk.)

Step 4. Click "Backup Now" to start the process.

After the system backup, you can connect the external hard drive to the new PC and restore it.

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Todo Backup on the new pc, and click "Browser to Recover" on the main page.

Step 2. Guide to the external hard drive that saves the system image, and click "OK".

Step 3. Choose a recovery disk, and click "NEXT".

Step 4. Click "Proceed" to start the recovery process.

After the recovery, you need to set the computer to boot up with the transferred system. Save all changes, then restart your computer to check all drives and programs are working well.
