milanmpq posted a problem getting his system image recognized on 9-1-09, post #12. I have the same problem: I created a system image on a network drive, carefully noting the credentials and folder path. I booted to the System Repair Disk that I had created with the MS Win 7-64 Ultimate OS Backup and Recovery function, and went to Advanced, selected Network, put in the \\path
exactly as reported when created, put in credentials exactly as created when the System Image was created, etc., and I get the same error as milanmpq: The network path was not found. (0x8007035) I have another computer on the same network so I have verified that the boot OS is connecting to the router (it reports a domain name which appears on the router's DHCP client list, further the NAS is also listed in the router DHCP client list and accessible from the other computer on the network (right down to the folder/files constituting the System Image). The System Image is just created--no changes in name, path, etc. This NAS doesn't require credentials, but I followed the Win Help instructions on this and created the required credentials when creating the Image.
What I wonder is if there is some trick in this. Is the path name case sensitive? I have tried pretty much every possible verision upper/lower etc. Or does this function simply not work? Has anyone been able to access their System Image stored on a NAS? Too bad, as I had hoped to use the canned function in my Ultimate instead of buying ShadowProtect, but I may have to see if the ShadowProtect trial version can handle this--bet so.
I did try Markah1's suggestion in the many path name iterations I attempted--didn't work.
Anyone else? Does System Image Recovery from a network not really work?
