Verify that you have a System Reserved partition of 100 MB
If yes, right click on this volume and select Properties.
View used and free space.
You must have around 40 MB free space for backup to complete successfully
I had not heard this but A Guy knows his stuff so having less than 40mb free space on the Sys Reserved partition must have been what was blocking your image from being created. I have 73mb free on mine and it makes an image.
However this problem should now be solved by recovering the System MBR into Windows 7 as the 100mb is no longer System Active, correct? Please post the Disk Mgmt screenshot so we can see.
And again: can you now make a Windows 7 backup image stored to data drive?
