Can't restore system backup after raid-0 crash
While trying to remove a partition on a raid-0 configuration holding a trial version of w7x64 using the w7x64 installation dvd the systeem freezed. After restart and loading the proper raid driver the installation dvd did not see the raid-0 anymore. The raid-0 configuration also contained my standard w7x86 and ubuntu 9.10. Non of them could be started by my mandriva bootloader ona sata disk. Only mandriva on that same sata disk started normally. Gparted in mandriva did not see the raid config either (just the two separate disks). The ubuntu live-cd did not load anymore. According to my bios the raid-0 was still working
So I fear my partition table or any other software to access the raid partitions is in shambles. I decided having made systembackups of my standard w7x86 to delete and reinstall the raid-0 hoping to restore the system backup of my default operating system.
After reconfiguring the raid-0 I partitioned it to the best of my knowledge with regard to size of the partitions. Then I tried to restore the system backup but failed.
The backup was found on a D: partition but when putting it back I got a window containing the message:
The system image is on a hard disk, but Windows needs to format that disk to restore your computer. Choose a different image to restore.
The only option that was offered comprised a choice between the two backup images I had. No possibility to get to a screen enabling repair and repartitioning of the disk.
I am completely stuck. Is this the end or is there still a way out?
