Windows 7: Will Macrium restore work without being able to boot W7.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

"...I was under the impression that Macrium Reflect restore process would create a mirror image of my old hdd partitions and all. Is this assumption correct ?" Yes, if the user had MR make a full image backup of all the existing partitions or if the user had MR make a full image of the entire hard-drive.

Any ideas what may be causing this.
This happened to me. I found that if I did the recovery after booting with the rescue disk, I didn't get this error. A question popped up at the very end of the process, indicating that there was one more task to do. I did that task (don't remember what it was), and it booted into Windows after that.
