Restore from system image & affect only one partition?
- I've got an hdd split into two differently formatted partitions: HFS+ and NTFS
- OS X is already installed on the HFS+ partition, if that's at all relevant it's an apple device on bootcamp
- The NTFS partition is blank. I'm planning on installing Windows 7 Ultimate x64 to that partition.
- I plan to "install" by restoring from a backup.
- The backup is a typical "full backup" of my Windows 7 Ult64 installation; existing as a system image on an external USB HDD.
I booted from my system repair disc (64bit), planning to restore from the image. From reading the instructions on-screen, however, it's to my understanding that the entire hdd will be formatted and re-partitioned before "applying" the system image, wiping away the HFS+ partition. I only want to replace all the files in the backup image to the NTFS partition, thus *restoring* the original config, leaving the HFS+ partition unaffected. Is this possible? Or will I need to manually reinstall everything? Doing the reverse process by restoring windows first, then adding OS X second is unfortunately, not an option for me.
All help is appreciated !
If at all possible, I'd prefer a method where I can put my backup to use. I do have an installation disc, if needed, however.
