I have replaced a hard disk in my media center and now I need to restore the system from a previously saved system image. It was saved on a network drive but the recovery program (on the repair disk) is unable to find the image. Using the command line IPCONFIG it does not appear the computer has an IP address although a DHCP server is available and working.

I copied the image to a USB flash drive but once again the recovery utility does not see the image.

I would appreciate any help with either method to restore the hard disk image.
