    Hi.
    I unzipped, rt clicked on RunMeAsAdmin.cmd and selected Run as Administrator.
    New window opened up with msg "Setting up....." but nothing happens after that.
    I noticed the window shows "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe".
    My environment is 64 bit - that make a difference?

    You can try the new one I posted - adjusted it slightly so should be fine for 64 bit Here.zip

    Just tested it on my 64 bit 7 - works perfectly.

    The idea is to save you a moderate size download.

    It uses winRE.wim - which is on your windows partition in a hidden folder folder named Recovery.

    If you don't have that - then it won't work. I don't know why you wouldn't have winre.wim there - unless the oem has removed it and is using their own version which they have put somewhere else - e.g. on an oem partition. But..from your disk management screenie - it looks like a normal installation.

    You should get this when you boot it up:

    Click Explore on the menu

    Get your drive letters from the explorer window, then click Shadows on the Menu - select your backup drive on the dropdown , click " Get Shadows"

    It will take a few secs to find them all , then this pops up:

    Click on the mount points above to acces the contents of each Shadow.

    Interesting - it gets further on one pc but not the other even though they are supposedly identical.

    So, I got to the Making iso stage but failed - cannot find specified path.
    I did press key to continue but there was no image file to burn.
    Cheers.

    Curious.

    Have a look in Here\ISO\sources folder - if there is a boot.wim in there - you can make an .iso from the ISO folder.

    BootIsoMakerV2.zip

    EDIT - are you running it from your downloads folder?

    You will have better luck extracting the 7-zip file directly onto your drive - so you will have C:\Here

    Hello DesDevil, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    When you are not given the option to format and repartition the disk, then this will usually occur if you are restoring Windows from a partition on the same hard drive.


    What other options do you have listed that are not grayed? You could compare to the screenshots in steps 7-9 of STEP TWO in the tutorial to help make it easier.

    Is the HDD that you are restoring to part of a RAID or anything other than a normal SATA connection?

    If so, then you could click on Install Drivers, and select your RAID drivers to load them and see if that may allow you to have any other option.

    If not, then you can still click on Next to proceed with the System Image Recovery.

    As Brink points out the formatting is not an option when the image resides on a partition of the same disk.
    In addition to the answer to Brink's last question........
    Are you trying to restore to a dynamic disk?

    Generally, I think the option you are presented with is the safest. Other partitions should be protected.
