  • image cannot be restored in this recovery environment

    Hi Guys,

    We are currently looking for a full state backup / imaging software for our servers,
    I thought, lets try windows backup

    I've made a full backup of all drives to an external disk (HP Proliant dl360G6 test server, with 2008R2X64).

    After this, I entered the raid controller, deleted and recreated the raid 1+0 and then booted up Server 2008 R2 x64 DVD.

    I followed the steps for repairing my server, and then it discovered my external driver, it shows the image and when I select it and press "next" it saids:

    image cannot be restored in this recovery environment......


    Anyone Ideas?

    Re: image cannot be restored in this recovery environment

    Have you tried restoring to a non-RAID disk?
    Alternatively have you tried doing a basic OS setup, then a restore?

    I am going to guess the RAID drivers are causing problems, hence the message
    Have you spoken to HP?
