Windows 7: reboot and select proper device (after restoring backup)

no boot device detected (after restoring backup)

I used Paragon to do a full backup of my Windows XP hard drive

After restoring the backup, i can't boot my system - error "no boot device has been detected, please press any key to reboot"

Of course the correct HDD is selected in the BIOS (i only have 1 HDD in this computer)

As far as i remember i have set Paragon to include ALL partitions in the backup, including the system reserved one.

But when i open my backup file with Paragon i only see the "Local disk" partition

Any way to fix it and get my system to boot ?

Remove any CD or DVD from your optical drive.

Do you have a CD or DVD in any device attached to your system?

PS; Including System Specs is always useful.
