  • Windows Complete PC Restore Internal Error

    Hi all,

    I had to wipe out my Vista business installation . But I have a full PC backup that I want to restore but the Recovery Console won't load it.

    I restart with the Windows Installation disc and then go to Repair PC...etc
    But when I click on Windows Complete PC Repair i get the error message:

    "An internal error occurred while enumerating back up sets."

    the full PC backup image is in an external USB Hard disk.

    Any idea what this means or how to get around it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe tell us what you've already tried to fix this? Anyway, 30 seconds in Google produced this - try his suggestion if you haven't already. While he doesn't give much detail, the command he suggets will have plenty of documentation available.

      I tried that:
      X:\windows\system32>wdadmin start recovery -version:0518/2009/20:05 -backupTarget:e: -machineell1000 -itemType:voulme -items:C:

      but it gave me an error:
      original volume backed up no longer exits ( or has been recreated0: c:.

      but I use "wbadmin get disks" find my local disk X:[ recovery], C:[OS]....
