Windows 7: Backing up hdd in separate machine via acronis nukes system restore?

Backing up hdd in separate machine via acronis nukes system restore?

Many of my clients have been bitten by the MBAM snafu last week, so I have a boatload of unbootable pcs here.. . Anyways,

Booted win7 64 machine with win7 recovery boot disk, showed a restore point available.. Thinking to be on the safe side, I better back up the hdd before running system restore.. Pulled drive, slaved it into another pc *xp* and imaged it with Acronis backup and recovery 10. Didnt boot the drive, didnt change anything on the drive.. Just imaged it.. Now when I put the drive back in the pc and boot it off the win 7 boot disk, there are no restore points to be found.... WTF? I`m guessing I`m not the first one to run into this?
