    Exclamation Restoring windows Partition


    Hi,,,
    I am trying to restore windows 7 using partimage.
    To restore MBR for the image i am using:

    dd if=/dev/sda of=/mnt/usb/b.mbr bs=446 count=1.

    next, using partimage to restore windows. this procedure works fine for windows XP but for windows 7 it is not working after restoring the image system reboots and left with black screen and blinking cursor. what i noticed is when
    i do parted /dev/sda for the first partition i get:

    start:1049 kb but for windows XP it is 32.3 kb so since this value has been changed
    image fails to restore. someone can help to resolve this issue thanks

    the dd command will copy the mbr to a file at /mnt/usb/b.mbr ... at what point are you restoring the mbr contents and from where?
