Windows Setup Rollback

I recently started to install Win7 in what I thought was a virtual machine (Virtual Box). But I found that I was installing it on the main machine, already running Win7.  I cancelled it.

Now when I boot up, I get 2 choices Windows Setup Rollback or Windows 7.

Is it safe to run the Rollback?

Thanks in advance.

it restores the entire boot and system drive.

how you confused the real machine from a virtual machine is only something you can kick yourself for.

Live and learn.. how you confused the two I have no idea. Hope you used the system image backup before you started this

FYI.  I thought I was installing in a virtual machine.

If I restore to a system image backup, does this also restore user data?
