Windows 7: System restore from a USB stick does not work

If you replace the harddisk and have the image on external harddisk (use usb2.0 port if usb3 is not working!):
  1. Boot from the usb stick with macrium winpe on it.
  2. Restore the image to the new disk.
Of course make the new disk totally clean first

Code:
diskpart
list disk
select disk 0 (or 1 or 2 see output of previous command)
clean
exit
Of course select the correct drive if you do it!
Above commands can be done from "command prompt". "command prompt" is also available on winnre macrium. Somewhere bottom-left of screen as far as I can remember.

Also check if these settings are still what you want System Protection - Turn On or Off

That's all you have to do!! Up and running in maybe 30 minutes. Of course you have to recreate D later (it is not in backup yet). And recreate E.

I have now created an image of C: on an external media as well, so I assume IŽm fully prtotected, even if (God forbid!) the internal HDD crashes. Kaktussoft, thanks a lot for your patient tutoring and advices! The only thing you have to do now is to teach me how to send a couple of bottles of red Merlod as an e-mail attachment, so that I don Žt owe you any more:)

IŽll also attempt a similar procedure for my 64-bit WIN7 desktop, if I do not manage to solve the problem with the USB stick that has an original factory version of the OS, but is not bootable, IŽll just download WIN 7 Proi ISO from Digital River and activate it, then IŽll create a recovery partition - the procedure should be the same, with the difference that the WinPE/Macrimum would be 64-bit?

On 64 bits machines you can use 32bits code as well!! Use same stick... you don't need to modify anything to the stick! Forget the bottle of wine.... went drunk last night... pfff feel like a zombie already.
