Windows 7: Having major trouble restoring from system image.

Having major trouble restoring from system image.

So basically I've got an acronis 2010 image that I want to restore from but acronis is being painful. I'm sure what I've done in the past is converted the acronis image to a VHD file and then restored using windows backup but I'm having trouble with that as well. I can't chose the file location so what I tried was create a system image with windows backup. Then replace that file with my converted acronis image but it still restores the windows backup. I even tried now creating a windows backup then straight away deleting that VHD file and then tested restoring thinking it would give me an error such as can't find " ".VHD file but it still manages to restore. I noticed when making the system image in windows backup it said something about a shadow copy so I thought there must be two copies of the same file but when I search for VHD files I cant find any apart from my converted acronis image. I have just the one hard drive split into 2 partitions and am trying to restore from my hard drive. I know I managed to get it to work in the past but I'm struggling to now. Would my life be a lot easier if I went out and bought a external hard drive and then copied my image file to that and restored that way?
