Windows Server 2012 restore error: The volume ID could not be found


  • We are trying to do a bare metal recovery of a Windows 2012 R2 Server from the Windows Server backups to a new disk drive and we get this error: The volume ID could not be found.  We are booting to the system recovery from a Windows server 2012 bootable image on a USB thumb drive.  We did go into DiskPart and do a clean all on the drive were trying to restore to so that it didn't have a partition image or anything else on it.  That didn't help.  Windows 2012 Server backups should be able to restore to different disk drive because hard drive failure is one of the reasons you might have to do a bare metal recovery.
