Cannot locate files for bare metal system restore windows 2008 r2 server

    Question

  • Hi 

    I have a backup of a machine.  Looking at the files I can see:

    \WindowsImageBackup\machinename\Backup
    \WindowsImageBackup\machinename\Backup\contains a load of xml files and a big vhd file
    \WindowsImageBackup\machinename\Catalog
    \WindowsImageBackup\machinename\MediaId
    \WindowsImageBackup\machinename\SPPmetaDataCache.

    I've loaded these onto a volume and booted from the Windows 2008 R2 server boot disk and hit "repair my computer"

    I can't seem to point the Recovery at the right files.  It scans for recovery files, and even if I drop to command prompt and type

    wbadmin get versions

    It does not find them.

    In my folder or network share I tried that  http://blogs.technet.com/b/askcore/archive/2009/02/04/windows-server-backup-2008-restore-from-network-location.aspx

    I'm running it at the top folder, and have tried lower ones too.

    What am I doing wrong?
