Windows 7: How to restore SystemImage taken in Win7 /Win8 dual boot environment

How to restore SystemImage taken in Win7 /Win8 dual boot environment

Hi y'all

Lately I have added Win8 to my Windows 7 x64 PC, so it is now dual-boot.
After that I have taken an Image of the system drive(s) using the built-in imaging function of Windows 7.
Now in trying to restore this Image file I had to realize that both Windows 7 AND Win8 using their built-in restore functions refuse to write back that image file

Of course, from now on I will use 3rd party software for that,
but is there any way I still might succeed?



(attached is my systemdrive layout)

Thanx in advance, eXPerimentator :-)

Well thanx very much. This seems 2 B quite tough.
I didn't plan 2 dig so deep into the matter but maybe I will.

Anyone has an easier solution?
