    Hi. I am trying to restore a system image to my laptop. I received the following error message: A Volume Shadow Copy Service component encountered an unexpected error. Check the application event log for more information.(0x80042302). I Have restarted the VSS in Windows 10. No help. I do not know what to do. Any assistance will be helpful. *Sad

    :)

    System Image failure with error: The system image restore failed. Error details: The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057)" on Windows 10

    Here's my issue in a nutshell. Had an issue with my HP Envy 17 Leap Motion. I have Windows 8.1 upgraded to 10. Made a system image disk on an external hard drive and sent the unit back to HP for repair. HP had to replace the motherboard and some other small
    issues. Got the system back and attempted to re-load the system image disk and got the following messages - "The system image restore failed. Error details: The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057)"

    Tried to do a recovery and got this message:

    "Your PC/Device needs to be repaired

    A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.

    Error code: 0x000000f

    You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device, contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer."

    (btw...I have installation DVD and a USB recovery drive)

    Next it was suggested I reset the PC. I got this message:

    "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again."

    Have no clue how to do that.

    I hope I've give you enough information to offer a suggestion.

    System Image Restore Does Not Find System Image In System Image :D Drive, External Drive, Etc. Windows 10 Pro V1709 64 Bit

    Hi Luis,

    This might be caused by a corrupted file. Do give us an update once you're done with the disk cleanup so we can provide further assistance.

    If the issue persists, if it is the system image for Windows 10, try downloading a new installation media that you can use through this
    link.

    We'll keep an eye out to your response.

    Boot from a windows 10 installation drive and use repair pc link. You can navigate to advanced options and restore image from there. As you have no booted into full windows, VSS is not used (VSS allows you to backup from Windows)

    Hi cereberus. Tried your suggestion. Did not work. Is system image being depreciated in newer builds. My build is 1709. Thank you.

    Oh dear, then I do not know what to do. Regulars here advise use of Macrium Reflect (see tutotials in tutorials section). Windows tool is deprecated but still functional at moment, but FCU could be last version - nobody really knows. What is important for people to understand as it is now deprecated, MS are unlikely to maintain it anymore so if bugs arise, they will not get fixed.

    Just had a thought. Maybe you could try and restore image in a second installation of Windows 10 ie temporarily create a dual boot drive, restore and then delete first copy of windows 10.

    Never mind - it would take too much time to explain. It requires a bit of knoeledge to do what I suggested. It will easier for you to te reinstall.

  10. I’ve seen at least one report of people getting same error message as you after upgrading to v1709. Here’s a link to the discussion on Microsoft TechNet:

    Win10 1709 System Image Restore VSS Error

    Going forward you may want to switch to a 3rd party solution. Many people in this forum recommend Macrium Reflect Free. I switched to it myself after I learned that Windows System Image Backup was being deprecated in v1709.

  12. Hi,
    I've had my share of issues with reflect and verifing system images after creating them on the fall creators update it fails every time for some reason.

    I have started doing it all through the winpe or reflect recovery cd and or flash drive media.
    This youtube video helped me a lot before the other tutorial was made

  13. System Image

    The bug on the windows image backup and restore is fixed on build 16299.214 and 16299.248, if you update windows 10 1709 to the February 2018 updates the backup and restore will work.
    Still you will not be able to restore backups made with build 16299.192 or earlier if you need to reformat the disk..
