Step 3

Select the correct drive and click “Start”. You will be prompted by a warning that states that the drive will be wiped. Continue by clicking “Create BootWell™ Drive”.

Step 4

Now Drive Genius 4 will start to create the BootWell™ drive. Once it is completed, you can boot the desired Mac with the new BootWell™ you just created.

Step 5
