Can I recover from a complete drive backup located on an EXTERNAL hard drive using Vista Ultimate (Once I insert the manufacturer recovery DVD)?

My present understanding is that once I get to 'System Recovery Options' dialogue box that the complete computer restore is only only available from spanned DVDs and partitions located on INTERNAL hard disc(s) of the computer iteself

Thank you in advance.

I don't think you can. When the recovery CD is inserted it will get all the info from it and when accesing the recovery partition this partition will get all the info from it.

Not sure though...
