Windows 7: W7 Restore System Image

W7 Restore System Image

I am trying to restore a system image using Windows 7 Repair Disk.

The drive to which I am attempting to restore the saved system image is part of a RAID 1 array.

The system image I am attempting to restore from was created on a non-RAID disk in another machine. In other words when the system image was created on another machine, that machine was not running a RAID 1 or any other RAID array.

On Restart at the end of the restore process the new machine will not boot into the restored C: drive which is in the RAID 1 array. System Repair cannot fix the problem.

Is the fact that the non-RAID image I am attempting to restore into the new RAID 1 array fatal to my plan? Is there any work around?

If you can go back to the machine with the non-raid disk, open up that pc (with it shut down of course) and temporarily install the raid card you're using. Boot up; the unit will ask for drivers for the raid card to be installed. Do that.
You do not have to set up the raid!

Then make another image on that non-raid machine. Take out the raid card and rebuild the RAID 1 where you had it. Then restore the new image to the raid. Should boot into Windows 7 now.
