If you have moved the WindowsImageBackup folder to the external drive, then the option one of the tutorial System Image Recovery will guide you to how to restore using that image .

If MBR is missing it is to run Startup Repair to fix mbr . If a single run of this repair failed to boot windows properly, we suggest to Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times with restarts .
