Using NHV-BOOT to BACKUP and RESTORE Windows (*.TIB)

Yes, on the blog, Admin and collaborators have shared a lot of tutorials on how to create ghost files with Acronis True Image software.

And the way to use the versions is relatively similar, I mean the versions of the Acronis True Image software. That is, as long as you know how to use one version, you can apply the same to other versions.

However, in this article, I will still show you how to Restore and Backup Windows with Acronis True Image software included in the NHV-BOOT rescue toolkit.

In fact, the usage is no different, but I want to dive into the NHV-BOOT toolkit so I still want to rewrite it completely


After creating USB BOOT with NHV-BOOT done => you access Mini Windows to start using.

#first. How to Backup (backup) Windows with Acronis True Image (*.TIB)

+ Step 1: You open the MiniTool Partition Wizard software (this software is on the WinPE desktop). Here I will explain more to you about the partitions that need to be backed up.

As you can see, Disk 1 is in the format of GPT => so your computer is running in UEFI standard.

We will need to back up 2 partitions, which are:

  • FAT32 (100MB): This is the boot partition, the EFI partition.
  • C: This is the partition containing the operating system, usually the C . drive

+ Step 2: Okay, after determining the partition to backup, then open the Acronis True Image software.

In this tutorial, I will use the 2014 version of Acronis True Image, because in my opinion, this version is very good and faster than the Acronis True Image 2021 version.

You can use Acronis True Image 2014 version + MiniTool Partiton Wizard 10, this will be a perfect combination for computer rescue 🙂

Because after a long time of use, I found that MiniTool Partition Wizard 10 version is fast and not as annoying as MiniTool Partition Wizard 12 version.

For computer rescue tools, it is not necessary that all software is the latest, as long as it works fast, stable and effective.

Both of these software have been taken out by the author on the Desktop (for the toolkit I am using, in the future, newer versions are unknown).

Okay, now you open the software Acronis True Image 2014 on the Desktop => select My Disks to select backup partition

+ Step 3: For UEFI-standard Windows, you need to back up at least 2 partitions for Windows to work.

The first is the partition EFI (formatted as FAT32) is usually 100MB in size. The second is the partition containing the Windows operating system, which is usually the drive C. As in Step 1 I saw it.

Please note that you can select those 2 partitions for backup, if you are missing one of them, you can’t extract the backup file.

+ Step 4: Next, you click the Browse button..

You wait for the process of creating a successful backup file, you will get a file with .TIB format, the speed of backup fast or slow will depend on the hard drive and hardware of the computer.

So you have successfully created a Windows backup file with .TIB format already, very simple, right 🙂

#2. How to Restore (restore) Windows with Acronis True Image (*.TIB)

First, you need to delete 2 old partitions EFI (FAT 32 – 100MB) and C: Windows go first, (remember to copy the data in this partition to other drives if available).

In addition, if your hard drive has many partitions with a capacity of


+ Step 1: Open the MiniTool Partition Wizard software => then right-click on the partition to be deleted => and select Delete.
