Ok so I have a backup image of my OS (Windows 7) on an extrenal HDD. I have used it multiple times to restore my PC no problem. I tried to do it again and I got an error message saying that "I needed to format the partition before I could reinstall the OS." The only that changed since my last install is I split my HDD into two partitions. It reccomended that I create a system restore CD and boot from that. I did that and I got a error:
"0x40012000100" (thats not it exactly, I am not on my pc to look)
I tried looking up the error and got no real leads. Anyone have any insight?
