Cloning HDD in Pre Windows Environment - USB bootable drive

Is it possible to use the Acronis Software before booting into WIndows?

 

I want to create a bootable flash drive so I can clone all Partitions and I don't want the software installed on the SSD's to have to later remove.

 

Does teh Acronis software allow you to make a USB drive or is there other free software that allows this.  Not sure why Crucial can't do there own.

 

I have a number of mechanical drives I'm repalcing with Crucial SSD's for performance and reliability.

 

 

Not sure if this post is duplicate as I thought I'd posted a topic but doesn't appear to have shown up in the forum list.

Hey mschmitt,

 

Thanks for your question. Acronis True Image for Crucial does provide a bootable version that can be run outside of Windows. I have provided a link below providing steps to create this media on a USB Flash Drive or CD.
