Windows 7: Trouble Restoring From Image

Trouble Restoring From Image

I just tried again to restore one of my other computer from an image
I had created last month. Since I use this computer to experiment and
try new thing, I end up having to install Windows again.
And once again I could not get my image to work. I have tried many
restore programs including Windows and could not get it to work
to save my life.
Could someone point me to a guide or app. that is idiot proof that
I could use.

I've been using Acronis True image for years and years and have never had a image not load on a good HDD.

But then I always make and restore the images from a Boot USB thumb drive loaded with Mustang PE and the Acronis image program.

Thanks for the reply.
But the problem was not in the loading, but in
getting program to work for me.

What do you mean by getting "Program" to work for you? Are you talking about the Image Program itself?

Personally I only load the Imaging program on my PC to make a Boot system to use the program Off Line. Never cared for how any of these programs work when installed in the OS. They seem to always want to start something when the OS starts, Make backups when I don't want them to, Ask me to use part of my internal drive as some type of recovery system (when if the backup image is on the internal drive and that drive fails the image is lost. Real great idea, NOT).
