There are a couple of methods to try and restore in that
this method if the automated Factory Restore procedure does not work. If the factory-installed Dell Backup and Recovery Manager is missing or damaged, it may imagex.exe download be possible to manually restore the factory image using Microsoft's ImageX utility. imagex.exe download windows 7 64 bit The procedure that follows assumes you have a copy of imagex.exe and you still have a Dell Recovery imagex 64 bit download partition with a factory image on it. The factory image is located at c:\Dell\Image\factory.wim. Restoring the Factory Image will erase any user-installed programs and user data. Before proceeding, make http://www.sevenforums.com/backup-restore/135785-no-factory-image-restore-choice-2.html sure you backup any user data you want to save (documents, pictures, music, etc.) and make sure you have the installation media to reinstall user programs.

Screen 1: Before starting, copy the imagex.exe file to a USB http://www.goodells.net/dellrestore/win7/win7recovery.shtml flash drive and insert the flash drive into a USB port on the computer. Turn the computer on and follow the first four steps here until you get to the System Recovery Options screen. Screen 2: This is the main System Recovery Options menu. We will use the "Command Prompt" option to perform the factory image restore. However, to avoid accidentally overwriting the wrong partition, it is very important to make sure you know which drive letters the Recovery Environment has assigned to the Recovery partition, the OS partition, and the flash drive. The next few steps are to identify those drive letters. To check the drive letters, select the "System Image Recovery" option. (Note: this option is for restoring images made with Microsoft Backup, so it won't find the Dell factory image. However, this is the only menu option that lets us explore the drive letter assignments.) Screen 3: As anticipated, a Microsoft system image is not found.

I've built a boot.wim with WinPE 3.0 with automated scripts for partitioning and imaging. The main image is about 7GB and is located on a server. ImageX version 6.1.7600.16385 My problem is, when i deploy this image i get imagex.exe download about 60% of the way and then i get: [60%] Applying (with verification) progress: 5:07 mins remaining [ RETRY ] Restoring c:\blah blah blah\some file (Error = 64) [ ERROR ] c:\blah blah blah\same file (Error = 53) Error restoring image. The network path was not found. The system cannot open the device or file specified. I've tried a couple times and get this error restoring image on different files between 50-70% complete. Looks like network is dying or something. So more info for you to think about: I have 3 local servers built running windows server 2000 that work fine with same scripts and image (fciv checksum ran against all good and failing network server) The network server that is not working is running windows 2003 server and is controlled by my IT department. 1GB network connection and is a stand alone server (we also run virtual servers for other things but i told them i needed a dedicated server for this project) 3GHZ Xeon 4GB ram. I've put in a help ticket to my IT department and now im waiting. Maybe someone has same issue and can point me in the right direction? I do have remote desktop acces to server to make changes. But the It department controls the network im using. Thanks in advance :) Wednesday, July 27, 2011 6:38 PM Reply | Quote Answers 0 Sign in to vote Hi, If the image is more than two partitions, it might happen when diskpart change the drive letters.
