I am trying to restore my Vista from a Complete Image Backup. I have it on an external drive. When the system finds the backup and I press "finish" to launch it, I get a message that says "The Windows Recovery Environment is loaded from a hard disk, but Windows nees to format that disk to restore your computer. Reboot from a CD or DVD and try the restore again." HELP!! How can I do this???
