So more or less it acts just like ATI, but the restore disc is actually the system repair disc , yes ?

Thanks ...

The restore disk contains a program wizard specific to the particular imaging program that can pull the image in. Has nothing to do with a Windows repair disk. You have to burn that from the imaging program depending on which one you use.
If you were using the Win7 imaging, it should have asked you to put a CD into the CD reader after the image was done. If you use e.g. Macrium ( here is the tutorial I made ), burning the recovery disk is the first thing you do. But you have to do that only once and keep the disk until the day you want to restore from an image.

Actually you place a fast temp install of 7 on the intended drive if the original has to replaced for some reason in order to run the restore option found in the Control Panel>Backup & Restore. Review the guide on this for the two methods outlined. System Image Recovery

With the Windows Easy Transfer once you start that to restore a backup the tool will restart the system in order to complete the transfer and put the settings into effect since the registry is involved there for different things. Try two displays with each having a different wallpaper and seeing go into effect on a brand new install of 7.

Yes I did do such . I made a backup image and afterward I made the restore disc which from what I understood is call system repair disc . I then gave the disc a try to see whether it would boot , it did and I notice in there that there was many options one can do , like repair, restore, and so on . Is there 2 different types of restores ?

The option to create a repair cd with the startup repair and other tools found on the 7 dvd is now seen in 7. That option will burn the appropiate files to a cd-r making it bootable as well rather then the need to have your installation disk in the drive or for preinstalls without any recovery media provided. The option to restore a backup rather using a system restore point is also seen in the repair tools on the 7 dvd there too.

The same is seen with a fresh install of 7 if you are unable to boot into the present one and going to restore an image. The tool will automatically load itself into ram and restart the system since the clean install will then be gone with the image unpacked onto the drive to replace everything.

The fast temp install of 7 is more for the convenience of going into the Control Panel>Backup & Restore section to get things going there rather then booting live from a disk. Circumstances with a laptop where the optical drive is either not working or substituted for a second hard drive is where the usb flash tool may have been what was used to install 7 if not preinstalled. The second HD or external drive would then be where the system image was found.
