Windows 7: System Image Recovery, Win PE, Recovery Partition

System Image Recovery, Win PE, Recovery Partition

Hi all,

I'm new here. Experimenting with Windows 7, WDS, the AIK, BitLocker and System Image Backup.

I have a problem with the 'System Image Recovery' in that the backup I saved to my recovery partition is not listed (I'm using Win PE 2.0 from 'winpe.wim' uploaded to the recovery partition to access the recovery GUI). As soon as I hit 'System Image Recovery', I'm told no images could be found. There's no opportunity to browse to find one, only specify a network location or upload mass storage drivers for removable media.

I created the 20GB recovery partition as per instructions previously found on other forums (it is of type 'ID=27', primary) and I had no trouble saving the image here through the Windows 7 Backup utility on to the recovery (D partition - Both the Windows system and recovery partitions are BitLocker enabled (but have been unlocked and I can browse the contents via the PE command prompt), I have not moved the image to a different folder... I notice when I type 'Hostname' in Windows PE I get something entirely different to the actual host name, so I have experimented with renaming the subfolder of 'WindowsImageBackup' to the same but it makes no difference.

Can someone please tell me why I can't see it?

Thanks in advance.

Ben
