I created a system image and move around some partitions

I created a system image and move around some partitions.

I got this error when I try to restore to my old layout.

Re-image your computer

Choose additional restore options

To restore this computer, Windows needs to format the drive that the

Windows Recovery Environment is currently running on. To continue with the

restore, shut down this computer and boot it from a Windows installation disc

or a system repair disc and then try the restore again.

If you don't have a system repair disc, you can                       Create Disc.

create one now.

                                                       <Back      Next>      Cancel

It’s asking me to format and repatriation disks to match system image.

Has a checkbox to select as well.

I never get such an error after doing these things.

Please help me on this.

Hi Christ Hilyard,

First thing you should know is that, after creating a system image (of particular partitioned space) your image is made with the partition specific options which are currently found on system.

For example, You have created a backup of a system whose partitioned space is divided into 30GB+ 10GB+ 10GB, and after backing it up restore it into the same partitioned space which is already divided into 30GB + 10GB +10GB (that's what you can) but you cannot restore with the previously backed up data (with 30+10+10) into a drive whose partitioned space is divided into one logical drive of 50 GB.

For this thing to be done correctly you will first have to create a backup disc of 30+10+10 and then make another backup disc for 50GB to be restored in one logical drive.

The message is correct.

You must have to make specific partitioned area in your drive that you allocated while you were creating your backup disc.
