Vista - complete PC - cannot restore without a good Vista DVD backup

I did a complete PC Backup using the tools system of Windows Vista on an external USB drive.

When I tried to restore from it as I did the following:

1. plugged in USB drive
2 startup PC, press F8 until I got the recovery menu
3. choose the option to restore complete PC
4. we find the USB key and asked me to confirm that it was the backup I wanted to restore
5. but then he stopped, saying that she had need to format the drive that the system recovery performed from and I need to boot from a different disk.

6. the Toshiba restore disk is useless for this because it allows you only to return to the factory settings.

7. to solve this problem, I had to find a copy of a Vista bootable CD. None is supplied with my laptop Toshiba A10 - d16. I found an ISO to neosmart image and allowed me to create a bootable CD. Then, I used this to boot from and was then able to restore from the backup.

Is this correct? Is - this Toshiba not question a CD that can be used to restore from the utility Windows Vista complete PC Backup?

If that is correct, what a nonsense this is. How can you count on Microsoft to provide a complete PC backup solution if they haven't thought through how to use it for real!

> How can you count on Microsoft to provide a solution for complete PC backup if they thought about how t n use it for real!
That of the point. This tool is developed by Microsoft and it would be interesting to know what they have to say about it.

Idea with an external USB device is OK and I wonder why it will not work properly.
Google, a little bit and you will find many useful articles on the procedure using Vista backup save tool. Computer laptop manufacturer is responsible for own tools and operation of the equipment, but for Vista offers...

  • Win 7 - cannot restore some files from a successful backup

    I recently bought a new laptop with Win7.

    I managed to restore all my important files to a backup of my old computer which was under Vista.

    When you try to restore my emails from the old vista computer, although I can see the files in the backup file real (using the tool of restoration provided by Win 7), after the execution of restoration, it is said that the restoration was successful, but the records seem to be empty and that's why I can't download my old emails to my new computer that represents a major problem for me.

    I noticed that, well I can see the folder Windows Mail in the file backup using the restore backup Win 7 laaredj, the folder that corresponds to Windows Mail seems to be on a color much clearer than the other files, however, if I double click on it, I can navigate and see its contents, but nothing is restored.

    Can anyone help? I would certainly appreciate any ideas, I tried to recover individual files, the entire file, one together records, tried to use different locations for the restored files but nothing seems to work. All other files in the same backup have been restored without problem.

    Thank you!


    Check if by chance the folder you are trying to restore is hidden (as you say that the folder is located in a color lighter than other folders).

    To verify the folder property

    (a) right click on the folder

    (b) select checking properties of the attributes.

    Try to restore the folder on another computer and check if it is successful.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • My computer has happened in a power safe mode and I cannot restore without rebooting. How can I prevent this from happening on the Vista operating system?

    My computer suddenly goes into safe mode of power and I am not able to restore in normal mode without rebooting the computer. How can I stop this from happening? My OS is Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit.

    Thank you

    You should be able to solve this problem by activating the mode Hibernate in the command prompt. If she hibernates, it will save an image where you are on your hard drive and you will be in business once the power returns.
    You must also make sure that your power options would spend in hibernation mode when the power is lower at some point.
    1. Click Start and type 'CMD '.
    2. Right click on CMD and run as administrator.
    3. Click on continue when you are prompted.
    4. "Type in the command prompt" "" powercfg.exe /Hibernate on.
    5. Go to the options to be able to enter the control panel by typing in "Power Options."
    6. You will see the different power options. The one you have selected, that's what you are currently using. Click on "change plan settings".
    7. Click on "change power avancΘs."
    8. Scroll down to the battery and you will see the options of low battery and critical battery responses. Make sure they are set for the hibernation.
    I hope that after these steps, your problems. Please let me know if you have any questions.
  • Cannot restore backup successful - 0x8007007A Vista Home Premium error code

    I use Vista Home Premium that came with my laptop. I had a nightmare with my Dell Inspiron for the last two months. I finally gave up and decided to do a clean install, after completing a successful using the Vista Backup Backup Assistant. Now, here's the problem. I reinstalled Vista, and made sure I had all the Windows updates available. Now I want to restore my data from my removable hard drive files.

    I click on the Control Panel, system and maintenance, restore the backup files, Advanced Restore and select my removable hard drive (which is cool). Then, I get the following error message:

    "There was an unexpected error. The data area passed to a system call is too small. (0x8007007A).

    I tried to copy the backup file on my computer and going through the same process, but I get the same result.

    I'm at my wits end with this, I can see all the files on my portable hard drive so I know something is there, it's just Vista backup restore will not do its job.

    Help, please!

    First, disable any security software you have running on your system.

    Then connect the external drive and go to start / Control Panel / Adminiistrative tools / computer Managmernet / Disk Managment and change the drive the drive letter of bacckup (I don't know why, but I saw an answer where this atually worked so it's worth a try).

    If this does not work, try a boot minimum  If the problem goes away then it's just a matter of tracking down the culprit at the origin of the problem.   Follow the procedures described in the article.  Once found, remove, delete, disable or uninstall.  Once remember to put Vista in normal status, as described in the procedures. If the problem occurs in clean mode then just restore the system to normal and reboot - this solution will not work.  More than finding the cause, I want to eliminate anything that might interfere with the process.  Try the restore in clean mode to see if the tht works.  Don't forget to return the system to normal when done regardless of the result.

    There is not much on this error code and absolutely nothing of a value - only valid suggestion posted above.

    Here is some general information that can help (although unrelated to this particular error)) but it may be useful to solve the problem as a whole.

    Here is an article on the restore procedure: to make sure you do this right.  It's a selective restore of a full or selective backup (not a full restore from a full backup) - but since you did a full backup, it matches your process more closely than would a full restore.

    This is a GREAT article on the backup and restore processes in Vista , but he won't go into detail about the restoration process - considering almost as easy, of course.  But it teaches you a lot about what is possible and how to do it.  It also focuses primarily on the full backup process, but he did mention the full backup and restore process as well.

    Here is an article on the advanced use of restoration (during normal restore does not work):

    Restore files from a backup

    Back up and restore: frequently asked questions

    I also found the following (but don't know if it of true or not):

    1. after the start of "backup and Restore Center."

    2. I chose "Advanced Restore"

    3. I was did not an administrator password... maybe because my account is an administrator account.

    4 choose "files from a backup made on a different computer.

    5. in the dialog box indicating "Select the location of the backup to restore", select "hard drive, CD or DVD...". »

    6. under the drop-down list box, select your drive/partition and continue

    7. If all the backups on your drive, it will show a list of them.

    8. in my case, he showed a backup, but in the backup location, it will show "backup location is not available."

    9. I was frustrated, but then I somehow just select this backup ("Yes... even if he said that the backup location is not available ' )

    10. and you press "next".

    11 guess what... no error!

    12. a window appeared asking me if I wanted to do a full restore, or I want to select specific folders or files.

    13. I selected the folders I wanted to restore and bingo... it their restored smoothly.

    14. so that the next time see a mistake, try to continue with him... ;)

    I don't know if this will help, but it does not provide much information about the process (when it works).  I hope you find any error or discrepancy in your procedure and it will clear up and allow you to restore.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Cannot restore backup image Vista Home Premium Vista Ultimate

    So recently my house was broken into and my laptop stolen.  Fortunately, considerate thieves left my backup hard drive external, I used my destination for Vista Ultimate backups.

    Advance of 2 weeks and now I have a new laptop.  It has Vista Home premium installed. It is deplorable that I must pay for 2 because Microsoft OS assumed that I am a software pirate and does not give me an OEM OS disk, but I also use a version with fewer features.

    But I'm better.  Soon I discovered that my non "backups" are not all files that are not some base document/text/music files.  All my encrypted volumes that have my REALLY important files were not considered sufficiently specific to save Vista, probably because their extension wasn't .txt, .doc or .mp3.

    Fine.  In fact, I did disk-image backups.  As recently, you mind, but at least most of my stuff should be there.

    And, I can't restore my own disk-image backups because Vista Home Premium does not support.  Great, not only bought Vista * double *, I'm not allowed to retrieve the files that I recorded with a BONE that I bought and supposed to be always clean, but only in certain intellectual property of Kafka-esque fantasy land.

    I tried the 3rd party virtualization software to try to start the image (.vhd files). No go.  Can someone tell me how to recover my files?  Thanks in advance.

    Hi Ixne,

    We will not be able to recover an ultimate Image on Home Premium. However, if you have a backup of your entire PC, then you can try to do the same thing in Windows Recovery Mode.

    Starting with the DVD of the operating system, once you see the manufacturer of the screen, Tap "F8". Choose the option "full restoration of the PC.

    Hope this helps with your problem.

  • Cannot restore an Alienware M11x

    Hi people, so I have a little problem, and I hope that someone can help out me.

    My beautiful new Alienware M11x was delivered last week and after playing with him for a while, I had to install a bunch of things to make a demo. Demonstration at the wire, I looked at all the things I had to uninstall and thought - "Hah!" "Easy - I'll a factory restore the right thing" connected DVD player external, stuffed in the disc that came with the machine rebooted and let it install. Uh oh. I now have an Alienware M11x with a completely standard base installation of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit there is no driver installed. No application installed Dell. No nice decorations. No request for Alienware. Nothing. Zip fastening. Nada. The only "customization" is an Alienware logo in system properties.

    So I called the technical support - it seems that what I has to do is to use Dell Datasafe Local to restore - but this is the crisis - reinstall Windows 7, Dell/Alienware provided Media has removed the repair option in the system to restore the Dell Image

    I can't find Dell Datasafe Local to download from the Dell support site - only Dell Datasafe Online. I can find patches for local, but not the actual application itself.

    The recovery partition is still there - all the 16 GB of it.

    Dell support tell me they will send me a new hard drive, with the original image to this topic, so I have to replace the hard drive. WHAT? Surely, there must be a download of Datasafe Local somewhere on the site of Dell support, or a way to restore the option in the menu of boot/F8/repair. I can't believe that there is not.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Please?

    Then... I wanted to tell you all that I have solved the problem. For people who told me that I was basically a certain Creek without a paddle, and to accept it and put it down to experience you can save this information, as one day you might have this as well.

    So, how you reimage one machine Dell/Alienware, when you have is no longer the Dell Datasafe Local tool, and by reinstalling a generic copy of Windows 7, you lose the ability to recover the image of Dell on a F8/repair of your computer? Here you go...

    First of ALL - a WARNING - it just worked for me. It may, or may not, work for you. Whatever it is, it will DELETE EVERYTHING on YOUR STARTUP DRIVE. Don't try this unless you feel comfortable with that. I am not responsible if you louse things up. Sorry, but I just want to say that up front. There are many other instructions for this, and if you don't like the sound of the present, then just do what everyone else has said and reinstall a clean version of Windows and download the drivers and Applications on the site of Dell my downloads. I'm-I REFUSE to believe that something is impossible, until I tried, so me hard on that until I have to work FOR ME.


    1. Ensure that you always have the recovery Partition. If you do not, you 're screwed, but if you the make, you'll notice everything is hidden. You can check by going into Options of folders and properties and saying to show him everything, including the protected system files. You will see a massive directory structure. You need to do attention to that is x:\DELL\IMAGE where x:\ is the recovery drive - on my machine, it was d
    2. In this directory, you will find a file called FACTORY. WIM - it is a format Image Windows Dell file created after the installation of your machine - this is the snapshot of your hard disk after a clean installed.
    3. Then you go to another computer, go to and find, download and install the WINDOWS AUTOMATED INSTALLATION KIT (WAIK) for Windows 7 - DO NOT install the version for XP or Vista
    4. Once installed, you can ignore everything, part of a file - IMAGEX. EXE - find this file--there will be three copies of it--one in a directory of a in a 'ia64' 'x 86' directory, directory of one in a "amd64". For my machine - an Alienware M11x - you need to copy the amd64 directory - I know, I know, the machine has an Intel processor, but the ia64 directory is for Itanium or Xeon systems. Believe me, it's one in the amd64 folder, if you try to use one of the other two it will tell you just that they do not work.
    5. Copy the IMAGEX command. EXE on a USB flash drive file - you can now uninstall WAIK on the other machine if you want.
    6. To return to your Dell/Alienware machine. It reboot and remain deaf F8 until the Windows Startup menu appears. Choose "repair your computer".
    7. The system will load in an environment Windows (called Windows re or "Windows recovery environment") and ask you to select your language and then log on. You MUST log in with an account that has local administrator privileges.
    8. If it pops up saying that it found problems with your boot options and what did you want to fix, say "No" - you're going to annihilate the start anyway, so it's okay
    9. Keep clicking Next until you get to a menu with options like "Startup Repair", "System Restore" Windows Memory Diagnostic","command prompt ". In a moment, we'll use the command prompt, but first he must know what drive letters WinRE has allocated to your partitions then choose option that resembles "Windows PC Restore" or "restore the System Image.
    10. You will see a dialog box that he cannot find backup locations. Press Cancel.
    11. Click the Advanced button.
    12. Click "install the driver a" to continue - we are nto going, so don't worry, but it will open a dialog box where you can see the drive letters.
    13. On Dell Windows 7 machines, it seems to be two discs, labeled "OS" and "Recovery". Make a note of each drive letter. On my M11x in WinRE drive as d: (the 'normal' Windows boot drive") operating system has been a drive and drive C: is the recovery disc - is behind what they should be, but stick with it. You can cancel it now and keep hitting cancel until you return to the Menu.
    14. Choose command line
    15. Paste your USB key with a copy of IMAGEX. EXE in the machine and wait until Windows re to recognize. Now just keep typing in the drive letter (C:, D:, E: etc.) until find you it. On my machine, it's G:
  • When you press ENTER, the machine will begin to decompress the image and copy it to the drive you have selected. In case you're wondering the '1' in the command line is to specify the number of images, as WIM files can contain several images.
  • You can get warnings like decompression. Yes, I did. I am brave (or stupid) and simply ignore them and crossed my fingers
  • When it's over, which for me was 10 minutes, type EXIT and press ENTER, then remove the USB key, unplug the other drives, you can be connected and press RESTART.
  • If it worked, you will start (with the correct drive letters - C: will now be the boot drive ) and Windows will run through its OOBE (box experience off) making Setup for the first time again
  • . Congratulations - you did it.
  • Buy now something like Acronis True Image or something else that makes the backup images and make a backup of your machine if you do not have to tear your hair works this out without any help from the printer Dell 'support officers' who do not have the slightest idea how to do that, promise you they will send you things and never go there.
  • Hope that helps someone. He has been the education, and I want to thank those of you who have commiseration or ideas. I hope that it is something that you can all add to your arsenal of solutions to problems that you hope you will never need to use

  • Cannot restore from a backup

    I cannot restore from a backup and don't know why.

    I have a Crucial SSD of BX100 in my mid 2010 MacBook Pro. It is divided into two partitions. I got Snow Leopard on a partition and Yosemite on the other. For some reason any I've never understood the Snow Leopard guarded beachballing partition. This happened if often that I decided to wipe the disk and reinstall from my backup, do it before the beachballing began to occur.

    But I can't restore. I wiped the drive of a Snow Leopard system, repaired and reformatted. The drive is not Core Storage, this is Mac OS extended (journaled). When I try to restore the restore on it works for about two minutes and then stops. Finally, I get a message saying that the disc has been ejected incorrectly.

    I noticed that when I receive information on the drive, an element appears different from other readers and which corresponds to the element, owners enabled: no each other drive I've seen says owners enabled: Yes. Is it all just because there is no system on the partition?

    Also "ignore ownership on this Volume" must be checked or unchecked?

    Suggestions welcomed, I am baffled by this.

    Snow Leopard erase and install

    1. Insert the Snow Leopard DVD in the optical drive and restart the computer.
    2. Immediately after hearing the chime hold down the C key.
    3. Release the button when the Apple logo appears and wait for loading to complete.
    4. After the installer loads, choose your language and click on the continue button. When the menu bar appears select utility drive in the Utilities menu.  After disk utility charges select the entry out-bumpy in the list aside (mfgr. size ID and disc drive.)  In the right side of the disk utility window, click the Partition tab.  Set the number of sheets to (1) on the menu drop down. Click the Options button and select GUID, click on OK, the value of the Mac OS Extended journaled format type. Finally, click on the apply button.
    5. Once the format is complete, quit disk utility.  Continue with the installation of OS X and follow the directions.
    6. Once installation is complete, the computer will restart in the installation wizard. After completing the Setup Wizard, you will use a new installation of Snow Leopard. Open the software update and install updates recommended.
    7. If you plan to sell or to give to your remote computer, then proceed as follows: once you reformat your hard disk and reinstall Snow Leopard, the computer restarts with a welcome screen. To leave the Mac in a State OOTB (Out Of The Box), do not continue with the Setup program. Instead, press the command and Q keys to stop the computer. The installation wizard will guide you the new owner through the installation procedure, after that it turns on the computer.
    8. Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 v1.1 updated Combo. If necessary. It is not necessary if you are selling or giving your computer away.
