Partitioned the HD, restored the DMG file to 1 part of the HD and put it back in Macbook and it comes up again with the Folder with (?) inside. 4.

I cant seem to know what i'm doing wrong i mean reading some stuff in this forum and some research in google/youtube its still abit different to what i'm use to, any help would be really appreciated.
