Windows 7: System Image Recovery cannot find system Image (W7)

System Image Recovery cannot find system Image (W7)

I have a mid 2013 Macbook air which I'm trying to restore an image on.

I've successfully booted off of a Windows 7 Recovery USB stick (with my mouse and kb working, due to some trickery on my part).

I'm now using the System Image Recovery program in attempts to restore my VHD windows image to my C drive. I have the VHD file on a USB stick plugged into the machine.

Using the command line, I can see my d:\WindowsImageBackup (on the USB stick) along with the VHD files contained within it.

Unfortunately, System Image Recovery is too stupid to see it. The error I get is "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer. Attach the backup hard disk etc etc".

Cliffnotes:
  1. Booted from a Windows 7 Recovery USB stick
  2. I have my WindowsImageBackup on another USB stick
  3. System Image Recovery isn't giving me any way of pointing to that backup.

What can I do?

Would it help if I copied the backup onto the same USB stick I booted from?
