    Apparently device '/dev/disk1' doesn't have a valid NTFS. Maybe you selected
    the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/hda, not /dev/hda1)?

    "Between the Hedges"
    It is saying your partition you are trying to restore to is not a valid NTFS partion and is suggesting you selected the whole disk (including your OS X partition) in error.

    Make sure you have selected the Boot Camp partition and not the whole disk

    If that does not work, you may have to delete the partition with Boot Camp Assistant and recreate it again
