O. K. hereŽs what I do:

1.)Start EaseUS (in WIN XP). 2.) Click Recovery (file, disk, partition)/System Rescue 3.)get interface Dis/Partion images (0) -zero i. e. No image File Images (0),Mail images(0). 4.)Right down I clicked Browse - and get Please select the backup image file. 5.)Click computer and geta menu with among other things HDD icon (C and another HDD icon marked Windows 7 (D Here I get stuck, even if I click the Windows 7 icon, I cannot go further and continue with the recovery - obviuously, as no ISO image is available according to EaseUS - see point No.3. When I check the contents of the Windows 7 (Dpartition, all the files from the original working system partition are there, but either it is not ISO (.i. e. the original partition just got copied without ISO, or something with ISO got corrupted during the backup imaging process.

Whichever the case is, the fact remains that there is No ISO image on the recovery partition, only what appears a pure files copy of the original working partition.

(D) is where the backup file is located (at least you saved it there)?
Start windows explorer and browse if file is still there

Yes, the "backup" file on the D partion (C is where my temporarily installed WIN XP is) of my HDD is STILL there. It refuses to get copied to an external HDD or USB stick though (I wanted to copy it to work on it on a separate medium in order to prevent further mishaps) probably due to some device in the Windows 7 on the backup copy to prevent making illegal Windows 7 copies? Anyway my thought was to make an ISO out of this non-iso backup file if this is possible and feasible,then make the D partition bootable and be back in business.

D partition is your original Windows 7 partition? Did you resize/move it? if so did it boot afterwards?

the "backup" file on the D partition => What's the name of that file? Sorry I don't understand

Kaktussoft, thanks for your tremndous efforty to help me. As my Asus Eee PC where the problem is, is not online (the version of WINXP temporarily installed on partition C does not agree with my network card) IŽll have to figure out how to transfer a screenshot to my wifeŽs PC (which IŽm currently using). Also, the language is not english, so in the meantime, IŽll describe what it looks like:

Volume Layout Type File sys. Status Capacity
Disc icon (C) Partition Standard NTFS Error free(system start) 119,47GB
Disc icon (D) Partition Standard NTFS Error free(System) 113,40GB

Picture below:

Disk 0 (C) Windows 7 (D)
standard 119,47 GB Error free (system start) 113,40 GB NFTS error free(system)
232,88GB
Online

The original working Windows 7 system was on partition C and the "gone bad" backup was done to partition D. The term "backup file" you ask about was a wrong expression on my side - the so called recovery partition (D) to which I did the backup contains now a full copy of all files from the original working C partition. I have not resized any partitions in the backup process. I want to add that when I swiched "Boot" from partition C to Part D where the Windows 7 is, the computer will not boot at all.

C and D are on SAME physical harddrive?
How did you try to switch boot from partition C to Part D where the Windows 7 is?
