You have a DriveImage XML image on the network on a USB drive and want to fully restore it to a hard drive on a PC.
You can use a UBCD4Win boot CD (see KB articles on UBCD4Win) to boot from a CD on the PC and then find and restore the DriveXML image from the network.
The steps to do this are below. We take our notes from this article:
Create the UBCD4Win CD if you don’t already have one.
- Boot from the UBCD4Win on the PC you want to restore.
- When UBCD4Win desktop loads, click the DriveImage XML desktop icon.
- Click Restore
- Locate the drive image XML file
- Select the destination drive
- Restore the data
If the data is not on a local disk or USB drive but instead on the network, you’ll need to access the network drive.
