I downloaded Veeam Endpoint 1.5 and made a full image of a Windows 7 system on a WD external drive. The Windows system is an HP Z440. I then installed Linux on it to do some specific work. Once done, I proceeded to do a VEEAM restore using the recovery disk made with VEEAM. I booted and selected the bare metal restore option, which starts Veeam endpoint recovery. I run through the steps, selecting the VEEAM backup file and proceeding to the Restore Mode step. I select "Entire computer", press Next and I get:
Unable to auto-match disks, please use manual restore mode.
If I use manual restore, it will properly list the system and OSDisk (C:) volumes from my backup, but when I select them, it says:
Cannot find original disk layout. Do you want to partition this disk manually
And if I choose this option, then the program displays a blank disk map and at this point I am stuck. I seem unable to do a simple restore of the whole disk.
Any ideas? (someone suggested that I reformat the disk, which is now holding the Linux OS)
