Windows 7: Network Location Cannot be Reached

14 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate
Network Location Cannot be Reached

Dear all

Can anyone help me with a System Image restore problem.

I have 2 PCís running Win 7 Ultimate which can communicate together on a Homegroup network using a cross over cable. One of them is new so after getting it set up how I wanted, backed it up to h/d on the old PC (over the network) using Windows Backup and Restore. It all worked fine but now I canít work out how to restore it.

During restore process I get as far as getting prompted for a user name and password and can get no further, error is ĎNetwork location cannot be reached (0X800704CF). I've entered the credentials of an administrator level account on the PC which stores the system image, using computerName\userName format for the User Name.

Iíve noticed the procedure and resulting error message are the same even if I remove the cross over cable. It seems booting into the recovery environment does not give me enough network functionality to make connections to any other PC.

Thanks in Advance
