Perhaps you misunderstood? Marking the Linux partition active does not allow the computer to boot, as per my message above.

I have no idea - that's what I am trying to determine. Recall the original problem:

1. Fully-functional dual boot working 100% without any trouble
2. Macrium used to create two separate images of Windows and Linux
3. Disk wiped and images restored in exactly the same sequence as they were created

Windows boots, Linux does not - I'm trying to work out why that is. I'm not trying to fix the Linux boot issue manually - I'm trying to work out why I can't simply restore the images to the same state as in step 1 above.
