The Windows installation allows you to select where to install. Just chose the unallocated 100GB space.

If you do what I told you... disk layout with partitions is the same as prior to clean command. And hopefully the same as the time when making system image (?)

If the layout is not EXACTLY the same you CANNOT restore the system image!!! You can but it will reformat everything so also D and E.

so if you want to restore.... do what I told you

I did follow you exactly you listed. But after mbr rebuilt, ran the recovery and chose 100mb reserved and 100gb, but when I click finish, it came up with the warning in the picture.
Have you seen it?
It says, if I recover, one of existing will be lost. So i didnt? Thatz what Im waiting on, what should I do?

Is it okay about that warning?
Which said that I may lose 1 existing partition?

cancel the recovery! Run it again. It shows you "system reserved" C, D and E? Correct?
If so.... check them ALL!!! And recover

and here is a sugestion from me,
Now, there is my D and E without drive letters. And my system image contains only 100mb and C.

So, what if i make this unallocated space partitioned with windows instalation console ( as it make the 100mb system reserved, and 100gb C and mark the system reserved as active automatically),

And then if its possible to acces these recovered partions with macrium rescue disk, I may get my image restored or if its not, i dont care, I can reinstall, its not a problem.

Thing im afraid is, what does this status 'none' means? And if I re install windows(on newly allocated C), would these two partitions be able to use readily? Wil windows recognize it as formated and data contain readily available partition?
