Windows 7: Which program is associated with windows image backup?

Which program is associated with windows image backup?

I have a Dell L501X, Windows 7 64bit. I had to replace my hard drive. I got the hard drive from Dell and it is a little larger than the one that crashed. I made a windows image backup. I changed the program associated with the 2 backup files to media files. (Don't ask me why they are VHD files.) I cannot restore my image and I need the programs on this image. The system sees that there is a "windowsimagebackup" but does not see the files. I think it is because I changed the program. Which program file do I need to change them back to and how do I change them back. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am new at this and appreciate your patience with my ignorance. Thank you so much.

Hello Icec, and welcome to Seven Forums.

By default, .vhd files are not associated to open with a specific program. If you like, download and merge the .reg file I attached below, approve the merge, and restart the computer when finished. This will unassociate .vhd files.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn,
I have disassociated the programs and tried to restore the image backup. I am stuck in the create a repair disc part and the system will not let me get past it without creating a new disc which I have already created. Any ideas? Should I go ahead and try to create another disc? I am not sure it will help.

If you do a System Image Recovery at boot to the new HDD, it wouldn't matter what associations you had set since they wouldn't apply at boot.

Starting with the vhd file you can restore the image with this procedure:

Icec,

You might see if doing a startup repair may be able to help with this boot manager error.
