I have used windows server backup to make a backup of this server. According to the console, the backups have been working correctly. The drive (single) died in the server and I went to restore. I replaced the original drive. I have the backup image on an external drive. I put in the Windows 2008 setup disk, get it running, go to repair my computer. It looks for the system image file but can't find it. I try 'retry' without any luck. If I skip and go to the network / install a driver section and I go into the dialog from finding the driver, I see the external drive with the proper designation. Why can't the restore see the image file? Is there a way that I can make it see the image file?

Thanks in advance for your assistance with this.

Regards,

Bill
