Restore backup direct to SD card?

Is it possible to restore a backup directly to a fresh SD card without needing to boot IPFire and restore from there? It would be great to be able to be able to directly swap a SD card with a new version that has already been restored. I’m guessing not possible, but thought I’d ask.

Thanks!

This is possible, if you generate the ISO, see https://wiki.ipfire.org/configuration/system/backup.

But this is possible only for restoring the same system.

So this could not be used as part of an upgrade strategy, correct? In this case, I’m on 172 and was hoping there would be a way to create a new SD card with 173 + my restored backup. It sounds like that is not possible. Not a surprise if so.
