Cannot restore a crashed Win 7 machine - Unknown network error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to restore a crashed Win7 computer with the Restore CD. Windows PE boots on the restore CD, I connect to the server and confirms the computer selection and select the latest complete backup. Then I select only one of the three partitions in the backuo (the boot or system partition). Then it starts to calculate the time required and soon thereafter fails with the following message: "An unknown network error occured".

    I have tried to dissconnect the router from the internet (and booting both the router, the server and the crashed client (still using the Restore CD) afterwards) but to no avail.

  • Can you submit a bug on Connect, with server logs collected using the Vail log collector tool?

    Also, have you tried setting your server to use DHCP (if it isn't normally configured that way), then using a direct network cable connection (no switches, routers, or hubs, just a wire) between your server and the client PC you're trying to restore?

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
