I am try to restore an system image from a 160G hard drive to a new 320G hard drive using a repair disk I made on the same computer.
After the repair loads , it finds my restore image on D drive, the 320G drive is not checked in the excluded window.
When i start the restore, I get "No disk that can be used for recovering the system disk can be found".
I have even installed win 7 on the new 320 drive in hopes that it would allow the recovery, it does not......
I finally just got it working. Trying to go from a 500gb drive to another 500gb drive and getting the same error. I went into Diskpart and type "select disk=0". Then I type "detail disk" to make sure I had the right drive. I typed "Clean", and then "exit" to get out of Diskpart. And then I started the image recovery and finally it works. Before I did these commands I had formatted the drive to one large partition, set the partition to active, and made sure it had a drive letter assigned.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
