Recovering a drive in Symantec Recovery Environment with Norton Ghost 15.0

  • When you restore a Windows 7 backup image, you need to restore both the System Reserved boot partition and the C drive with the operating system. To boot the computer successfully, restore the hidden System Reserved partition first and set it as active partition. After successful restore of System Reserved partition, restore the Windows 7 system partition (C:) in the remaining unallocated space on the drive.
