    If you have a large enough USB stick you could use Macrium Reflect Free to put both the boot restore program and the image on the stick. There may be a way to do something similar with the Windows imaging tools but I have used 3rd party tools for so long I haven't tried the built-ins.

    Perhaps another poster can answer about using the Windows imaging tools.
    But the Macrium imaging is about as easy as it gets. No need to read the manual.
