    Hi guys, did a search but no luck related to restoring a win7 image.:(

    Basically, I thought my HDD had died a week ago - many HDD's later found out it was the flex cable connecting the logic board to the drive. New one bought and installed and everything is okay.

    I have bought a new WD 750gb scorpio black drive and restored my OSX using time machine, then used bootcamp assistant to make a new bootcamp partition.

    I then went to restore my win7 winclone image but keep receiving the erros message. I have formatted it to FAT 32, and NTFS - with no luck on either. I have seen some XP specific forum posts with some really helpful log viewings, dissections and eventual resolutions, but these seem to be slightly different from mine. Here is the log output if anybody can help:

    Efficiently clone NTFS to a sparse file, image, device or standard output.

    If FILE is '-' then send the image to the standard output. If SOURCE is '-'
    and --restore-image is used then read the image from the standard input.

    Hope someone can help - It has a hell of a lot of clients work on. Although this is backed up separately getting this image to work would be so much less hassle!
