Not sure what you mean by "run the DVD to start the system image recovery process".

BTW... there is a "WindowsImageBackupFolder" on the DVD.

Regarding "WindowsImageBackup folder from where and how it was originally saved at", when I created the Windows image backup, all I did was specify that I wanted the image saved to DVD discs. I really appreciate this help. I really need to do this.
Could you post a screenshot showing what you see at this point?

Are you able to select (dot) the Select a system image option?

I don't remember where I would have been in order to Snip the screen as it has been 18 months since I purchased and set up this pc. Yes, I can select (dot) the Select a system image option.

How are you getting into the WinRE to load the system image, booting to DVD or F8?

The Windows Backup gives a message while doing a DVD image recovery to put the last DVD in the drive.

What is "WinRE"? Sorry, I'm not good with computer abbreviations.

I've tried two approaches: (1) via Control Panel; and (2) I respond when prompted to "hit any key" during boot up. Both approaches eventually take me to "Select a system image". I select this option, but it appears that the PC is not looking at the DVD drive.

Are you saying that I should put the last system image backup DVD in the DVD drive first?

Thanks for helping...

Windows Recovery Environment.

I am not saying it, Windows is ! But yes, the last DVD should be used first. The reason probably is because all the info on the image, like number of DVDs, is written to the last one. It may ask for the first one after it reads the last one.

This happens most often to my Windows 7 Forum shortcut. This what it looks like now....... Now and then, it would change into something like a globe. A little later, it would revert back to the " normal " image. What causes that ? NO, I did not install anything when this happened...

Online image as desktop image
How can you display an online image on your desktop? In XP you could go into "customize desktop" and there was a WEB tab where you could enter the url. So if the online image from the url changed, you would see the changes on your desktop as well. Isn't that possible to do with win7?
