Not sure everyone will know where to find their SATA drivers. ( or even what SATA drivers are, for that matter).

I don't use windows system image - but perhaps if your windows installation sees the backup HD - might be easiest to point at your install partition driverstore.

Applies to win7 too, I imagine.

Hi Si
For this example, I am using JMicron JMB36X SATA/RAID Controller card.

Would greatly appreciate help/insights.

Having trouble seeing created system image backups on backup drive--using created system repair disk. Worked before I thought, but not now. Backup drive is older Seagate Freeagent firewire (IEEE 1394) drive. I am told "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer," etc. So, I would try to install a driver, but have not been able to find what's needed. Snips of what I know obtained via Device Manager are below. Still, what is happening does not make much sense to me because when I try to locate the needed driver, I can go directly to the Freeagent drive and see my created system image backups. Same problem occurs when I connect the drive via USB alternative.

This is the best I can do (no snips being allowed):

driver name: disk.inf
Seagate FreeAgent Pro IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device
Driver Date: 6/21/06
Driver Version: 6.2.9200.16384
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows
Device: SBP2\Seagate&Freeagent_Pro&LUN0&REV10\0020370100003d92



Sorry having trouble with my snips right now. Don't understand that either. Will get them up ASAP.

Help. Why can't I upload two small png files?

This isn't my day.
:D

If use a USB 3.0 port, try loading the drivers.

Thanks much for the help. I think you probably saw this above: "Same problem occurs when I connect the drive via USB alternative." The old clunkers I am using are USB 2.0. In this regard, device manager does not "tell me" which driver(s) to load. USB 2.0 would be very slow, but I'd use it if I have to--and it would work. On the other hand, I might be able to reinstall faster. Don't know.

Can't use esata. Computer doesn't have a port.

You might need to install the drivers in winre.wim, before you boot it up.

Hy,

I have tried to load the system image using the above method. Once I upload drivers it says I have to restart.

I downloaded the drivers x64 bit from:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=23060&ProductFamily=Software+Products&ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Rapid+Storage+Technology+(Intel%c2%ae+RST)&lang=eng

I initially was running on windows 8 on my hp pavilion dv7. Kindly help

I had a main C drive of apprx 650gb and a small D Drive of approx 15GB. How do I install the drivers in winre.wim?
Will this let me restore the image because currently the system image recovery does not detect the image at all.

Hello CVJ, and welcome to Eight Forums.

What drive did you save the system image to, and is it connected?

It can't be on C:, and D: is to small. A system image is not the same as the factory recovery partition or a custom refresh image.

The image was about 40gb and was initially created on the C drive via command prompt. I copied the same to my external powered hard drive.

I have a HP pavilion dv7

Where are the sata drivers???

You are so right! Can someone please give nice step by step instructions on what to do if your computer cant find any system image backups?

I have a factory reset 1 month old HP Pavilion laptop, windows 8.1. I want to restore the image I saved from it with recimg to a 3TB USB hard drive. The drive is plugged in to the laptop. The CustomRefresh.wim is in the RefreshImage folder on it exactly as per your instructions elsewhere. It can find it easily in file explorer. Cant find it in the "re-image your computer" window as per your screenshot above. I tried copying the wim file to desktop, then to C:\. Did the setcurrent instruction as per your instructions. NOTHING WORKED. Still reported "cannot find a system image on this computer". I tried straight refresh as read somewhere that it uses the recimg file. That returned an error, "nothing has changed".

You say "copy your SATA driver to a disk". Um, where is the SATA driver located please? What is it named??? Will this fix the cannot find problem if the backup image is already on my C drive??? Can I just drag it to a USB drive? How will the laptop find it if it can't read USB drives??? I don't understand any of the discussion on this page. Tried dragging .sys files showing in properties as drivers for the backup drive to a USB, but clicking each of these returned :does not contain information" error message.

I am really glad I tried this on a spare laptop and did not wait until I really needed it...

Can anyone help please?
