    Restoration of Windows 10 System Image failed etc.


    My version of Windows 10 Pro 64bit 10.0.19042 Build19042. Did a system image backup torestore it to a brand new 1TB HDD. When the restoration was near finish I gotthe message that the restoration failed with the error code 0x80070057. The system repair disk I used was created onthe same PC immediately after finishing the image backup.


    I thought perhaps doing a sfc /scannow will correct the situation. It didn't work. I got the error message “WindowsResource Protection could not perform the requested operation”. Same error message when I tried doing it in safe mode.

    Similarly, I tried DISM. I got the error message “The WOF driver encountered acorruption in the compressed file's Resource Table."
    Next stop, I did a CHKDISK with the parameters /f /r/x. Chkdsk completed but no information on the state of the files checked. I thought I could use a Windows 10 installationmedia to repair any corrupt files. Down loaded the latest ISO file using MediaCreation Tool and burnt it on a dual layer DVD media. I booted from the newly created DVD mediaand selected Repair Your Computer/Advance Options/Command Prompt. From CMD Itried to run SFC offline in the same PC and on another PC with the following syntax:


    Sfc /scannow /offbootdir=X:\ /offwindir=X:\windowswhere X is either C: or F: where the drive letter where Windows10 in installed.


    Same error message “Windows Resource Protection could not perform therequested operation”.


    As a last resort, Itried to repair Windows using the installation media that I used above. I did ain place installation without losing my data and apps. I had previously triedupgrading this PC online but I got the same result as doing a in place installation. Onboth occasions everything went well only when the updating process hadcompleted I have the message “ Undoing changes made to your computer”. My PCrebooted to one as before the update with the message “The installation failed in theSecond_Boot phase with an error during PRE_OOBE operation” with the error code0x80070428-0x4001E. So, what was going on ?


    I had explored every avenue for the last 4 days but nothing seems to work.

    :)

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    4. Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    5. Boot up with your new HD.

  3. System image restore fails

    I'm replacing the hard drive on my laptop since my original is full.

    1. Using Windows' Backup and Restore, I created a system image.

    2. Since I do not have a DVD drive, I created a Windows 10 install media (here) directly to a USB.

    3. I boot up using the USB and attempt to restore the image.

    I receive the following error -

    Windows cannot restore a system image to a computer that has different firmware. The system image was created on a computer using BIOS and this computer is using EFI.

    It's the same machine. I tried the same steps listed in this Microsoft Community question

    here
    . Didn't work.

    1. I went into the BIOS and disabled Legacy Support so it would boot up in UEFI.

    2. And vice versa, re-enabled it.

    3. Tried it with Secure Boot disabled as well.

    I'm not understanding why this is happening as everything has been done on the same laptop.

    Any ideas before I have to go out and purchase third party imaging/restore software?

    Thanks.
