The only remaining question I have is about whether to replace the MBR during the Image Restoration like the program recommends?
Do this only if the MBR is on your C partition (C is the active partition). If you have the little 100MB partition as active partition, then you must not restore the MBR.

Thanks WHS! That was the last piece of information I needed to confidently do a Reflect Image Restoration! Its been a long haul in that my Win 7 x64 desktop refuses to recognize either the Reflect Rescue CD or the Windows 7 Rescue CD, but I got that solved and I thanks to the help I got here on the SevenForums I was able to complete the Image Restoration.
