Hi jokehb, and welcome to sevenforums

The way that you'd need to restore your cloned drive depends on the way that you cloned or backed it up initially. What program/method did you use?

Restore your computer from a system image backup
  1. Insert the installation disc or system repair disc.
  2. Restart your computer using the computer's power button.
  3. If prompted, press any key to start the computer from the installation disc or system repair disc.
    If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You might need to change your computer's BIOS settings. For information about which settings to change, check your computer manufacturer's website. For more information about BIOS, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.
  4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
  5. Click Repair your computer.
    This step only applies if you are using a Windows installation disc.
  6. Select a recovery option, and then click Next.
In step 6, you'll need to select "restore from a system image", then browse to where you saved the back up image to (on either the old disk or removable media).
