    Re-image failed. 0x80780088


    While trying to restore from an image, I get an error:

    The system image restore failed.

    Error details: The specified list of volumes to recover contains
    duplicates.
    (0x80780088)

    I'm trying to recover windows 8.1 x64.
    I googled the error but nothing came up.

    Any advise ?

    Could you attach a picture of your Disk Management Windows showing the partitions?

    I have seen that error, and I believe is caused by multiple System partitions being present in some manner.

    If you have 8.1 are you using the 8.1 recovery media?

    Edit: When you try to re-image, are you using a Flash Drive, and are you using the check box to keep it from being reformatted?
