I'm having issues trying to restore from a Raid 0 Failure on my Intel SSD's.
After giving up on trying to recover the drives, I formatted scanned for errors recreated the array then tried to restore the machine from the WHS2011 images.
First I tried using the USB solution but when it tries to boot it claims that a required device is inaccessible 0xc000000d
After giving up on that, I figured, since I have XP still on my old 1TB hd that I retired to just data, might as well boot to that. When I do that I cannot install the connector due to misc errors that others seem to have.
I then tried using the client recovery wizard, and you can double click the 32/64 bit versions as they do absolutely nothing at all and just crash as soon as you launch and asks to send MS a report. Testing that exe on my laptop which has win 7 works fine.
I cannot simply remove the HD and slave it to the server, or to the windows 7 machine because I recreated the Raid array and want to restore the image to these drives.
I finally broke down and tried using the WHS2011 DVD to boot the machine and go to the recovery there. When I selected use network for the recovery files it asks for the password for the share then gives another error message....
Help I'm running out of options, the last thing I can think of is installing windows 7 on a spare drive and running the recovery wizard

Your are trying to restore a Windows 7 system from the WHS2011 in your network, correct?
Have you read through this article:
and many just like it? You may want to give it a rest for overnight and come back fresh.

Ok so more news since I last updated this thread.
I've tried the method in your link first before posting here, but that was a total bust for a few reasons (#1 in my frist post I got device inaccessible) following that, I was able to resolve that, I then got
RestoreCDInit.exe - Application Error
The exception Cannot Continue
Windows cannot continue from this exception.
(0xc0000025) occured in the application at location 0xff43b477.
Click on OK to terminate the program
Regardless if I tried in EFI/Forced BIOS mode
The link above explains how to fix, however, I think there is a problem with ASUS boards as I along with someone else have the same problem regardless if I select EFI or Bios mode.
I'd like to understand the windows 7 Recovery options, and if you select restore form image on network why does it crash when after entering user creds?
The only method I could come up with was using my windows 7 laptop as a stating ground to recover to a spare HD. Then ghosting that HD to my raid array in my Desktop.
Since I did not backup EVERYTHING on the machine it didn't restore windows nor may other folders, so i'm not quite sure how to boot the machine now becuase if I install windows 7 over the old stuff which is just the users directory and a few others it will not carry over the profiles and I will have to manually copy, unless BMR copies everything regardless if you have all folders setup for back up?
I think the lack of clarity for initial backups and what is needed and the constant errors which have zero meaning to end users really make this product subpar for a MS product IMO.
Now, any suggestions on getting this WINPE usb to boot up correctly? Ultimately that would be the best way to restore.
