Restoring an image as a 2nd partition

Postby ghedrick » Mon Mar 14, 2016 9:42 am

Is it possible to restore an R-Drive saved image as a secondary partition? The bootable program is only allowing a restore to the beginning of the drive (overwriting anything else on it) I'm trying to restore a Windows 2008 System Reserved partition and the OS partition to the same drive. They are separate image files, originally coming from different disks (entire drive image was not an option)

After restoring just the main OS partition, I ran the Windows 2008 Server R2 disc in repair mode. For some reason it could not find my OS partition. I was able to get my system working using a separate drive for the sole purpose of holding the 100MB system partition...this is not the ideal situation how I want to run my server though.

I think that's simply unfeasible. The Windows loader should know where the system and reserve partitions are placed.
