Greetings:

 

To an external USB drive, I backed up a system image as well as all my partitions CDEFG.  Now I want to restore them all from the external USB drive to a new internal hard drive.  Should the puter be connected to the web during the restore, or should I keep it disconnected ?  Will much appreciate advice.

The only way that a system is connected to the Internet usefully...is via a network device and the drivers for such.

 

Those items exist on your backup.  You should follow any directions provided by the software used to make this backup...regarding restoring such to a system hard drive.

Doing a complete system image restore isn't affected by internet connectivity. I have restored images with the computer connected via both wireless and internet successfully. During the restore there is no internet connectivity until the restore is completed.
