    0x80070057 error at the end of system image restore


    A couple of days ago I made a system image backup (there were no error messages that it was unsuccessful), now I need to restore it, I boot Windows 10 DVD, point to a network location and start the restore, but after an hour or so, at the end it errors with "0x80070057: Parameter is incorrect". After that Windows boots to diagnostic mode but fails to repair anything. Diskpart shows that the partition which used to be C is RAW, I also have an impression that the order of partitions is different (C was 3rd, after restore it seems to be 1st).
    I checked and I'm able to mount VHDX with C partition and access all files, chkdsk doesn't find any errors on it.
    It's a UEFI computer with GPT installation.
    Is there some way to restore it with some 3rd party tool, or manually? What can I do?

    PS: there's a lot of clues on the internet about fixing similar problem when such error popups at the beginning of restore from a USB thumb drive. The solution is to unplug the thumb before starting so the restore doesn't get confused with the additional drive. It's not the case here, I'm not using USB thumb and I get the error at the end of restore.


    Update: I managed to restore an older backup of Windows 8.1 from before upgrade to Windows 10. I used Windows 8.1 DVD for the restore.

    The difference between an old image and the new one is that after upgrade to Windows 10 I removed an optical drive and replaced it with a SSD which I was using for page file and ReadyBoost. Also, Windows 8.1 had 3 partitions, while after upgrade to Windows 10 I noticed that there's some additional 4th partition (so there were 2 restore or EFI partitions, not sure which), but the backup image of Windows 10 still consists of 3 VHDX files. The image of Windows 10 isn't an image made from a scratch - when I was setting up the backup I simply pointed to the old 8.1 image and Windows 10 was making its images on top of the old one (I wanted it to backup the differences only, to avoid huge transfer of the whole drive).

    Anyway, as I already stated I'm sure that VHDX of Windows 10 isn't corrupted. It's probably some problem with XML metadata so the restore procedure can't recreate proper partition layout corresponding with images, or something. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Failure at the very end of System Image Restore: the parameter is incorrect 0x80070057

    Thank you Frederik.

    Instead of paid software I used free version of Macrium Backup.

    1. Convert vhdx file to Macrium format(map vhdx as virtual disk in Win Disk Manager and just create backup via Macrium)

    2. follow this steps How to Restore an MBR System image to UEFI/GPT (Convert, GPT, MBR, Restore)

    Now, my old win is up and runnig.

    What else to say other than that Windows Recovery sucks and if you need help from MS support they want to charge you for their mistakes!

  3. Failure at the very end of System Image Restore: the parameter is incorrect 0x80070057

    I have checked several threads regarding this problem, but none of them helped.
    I had to send may laptop to warranty repair. Prior to that I had done system image backup via Windows Backup and Restore tool.
    After my laptop was repaired(mother board was changed) both disks were wiped out.
    I have one SSD for system and second HDD for data. I am running Windows 10 64bit.
    I copied my system image to HDD.
    I booted from usb and chose system recovery from HDD. Selected format
    SSD.
    All looked good so far, but at the very end I received error message: the
    parameter is incorrect 0x80070057
    I have tried recommended tricks with removing usb before restoring, but it did not worked.
    Any idea?
    Is there any third party tool to convert win10 system image and copy it into
    SSD?
    I would like to mention that I tried to do system image backup/restore of fresh system and it works fine.
    Thank you for any help
