Windows 7: Windows 7 System Image not finding image files

Can your PE disc project restore an image created with the built in Windows imaging program?

If it can, what steps do you take after booting with the PE disc?
I click the MsImageRestore icon under start menu\program files

Windows 7 64 bit

Does the build you create change the system it is being built on ie. registry etc?

Also, I don't know if you already have this or would be willing to do it but in my case I do not know about a lot of the tools available on your PE disc. If more of the same info above on how to use the items on the PE disc was available it would definitely help promote the project.

Thanks for taking the time to create it. I will be building the PE disc after I get this thumping 4TB Gold drive replaced

2. It includes the exact same MS recovery tools already present in winre ( startup repair, system restore, system image recovery ).

It also includes windows explorer, windows disk management, windows device manager, windows service manager.

It supports usb 3.0 and includes most nic drivers.

I assume people know how to use those standard windows functions.

3. It offers to download and include qtweb ( small web browser) and the well known file recovery program Recuva, and ESET free offline av scanner. It checks if you have installed any of the popular partition managers/ disk imaging programs and if found, it includes those also.

I assume people know how to use their own installed software.

4. There are a couple of small programs included you may not have come across - a gui for dism, and an nt6 repair tool ( basically a boot repair tool ). They should be self explanatory.
