    Default win 7 image restore - HOW?


    have z78 pro mb.

    installed win7 64bit, etc., have made regular win 7 image's to various media.

    need to restore image backup due to hd corruption.

    used win 7 repair disk (created on this pc) but get as far as selecting image to restore then get error message:

    cannot use this disk as it is efi not bio (or something very similar).

    PLEASE, what's going on?

    how do i get around this problem?

    In order to restore efi partition, you must first boot from an efi media.

    1- What media are you booting the OS from, is it an efi or MBA partition?
    2- What application are you using to restore with?
    3- How did you initialize(partition&format) your media(s) before you put your backup on them?
