Starting Bare Metal Recovery

Once you have created bootable media (you can select one of two options in the Type step of the Bootable Media Wizard: creating a bootable flash drive or configuring the downloaded .iso file), you may proceed with bare-metal recovery. Before you begin, make sure that the bootable drive is plugged into the target physical machine. Proceed as follows:

  1. Boot/reboot the machine in BIOS/UEFI mode to enter firmware settings.

  2. Configure the boot options so that the machine boots using the previously created bootable drive.

  3. Save changes and reboot the machine again. The bare metal recovery appliance will launch upon restarting.

  4. Launch the NAKIVO Backup & Replication shortcut located on the desktop.

  5. Enter your username and password and, if needed, a two-factor authentication code to log in to NAKIVO Backup & Replication. The Bare Metal Recovery Wizard opens.

    Logging in as a user with a Master Tenant access level is not supported for this step.
