"Windows cannot find a system image on this computer" X____X
Posted 07 August 2011 - 04:45 PM
This is my exact problem, down to the tooth. Spent ages Google searching finding zero results. This is the situation:
-I just wiped my previous 750GB internal HD clean, and I put in a brand spankin' new 1TB internal HD. I assume it's relatively blank.
-I had a copy of Acronis True Image, and I made a backup with it. It wouldn't recognize the .tib file in System Recovery. Thank God, I was able to convert the file to a .vhd file as I have access to another laptop, which is where I'm posting from.
-I go back into System Recovery (remember, this is a Windows 7 64-bit edition recovery disc, there is nothing else to work with, it's a blank HD) and I attach my MyBook 1TB to the computer once more, praying to God something shows up, annnnnd nothing. "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer"
Yet, the SystemImage is certainly there. In both the command prompt and the next page where you can search for drivers, I literally see it sitting there.
I thought the problem might've been that the name of the SystemImage was wrong, because it was originally created in Acronis. I'm regretting that ever since, but now I think it might just be a really weird problem. I renamed the system image from "System_Image.vhd" to "WindowsImageBackup.vhd". That didn't work.
Then I figured, maybe it needs to be in a certain folder structure. I did some Google searching and made a makeshift folder tree, "WindowsImageBackup" --> "NameOfComputer" --> "Backup" and then I placed "WindowsImageBackup.vhd" in that folder. Didn't work.
This is all or nothing, I really need what's on this system image, and I know for a fact that my system image isn't corrupt. Please, PLEASE help!!!

IF ANYONE ELSE HAS THIS PROBLEM, the problem isn't your system image, it's Windows Recovery, which sucks compared to wonderful, wonderful ~~~ACRONIS~~~ all you have to do is make a bootable disc in Acronis and you're all good.
