I've been testing the ability of various imaging apps to restore an entire drive image of a UEFI Win8.1 system to a new empty HD. Simulating a HD failure. These fail... AOMEI Backupper Pro 2.2 Drive Snapshot 1.43 Clonezilla With AOMEI the First Track is not being restored as LBA-0 to LBA-2047 contain no code after a restore. With DS the First Track isn't being restored correctly. Using TeraByte's MBRWork the First Track was backed up on a system that had already been imaged by DS. MBRWork was used to restore this First Track backup to a new empty HD. The DS images were restored (Restore Partition Structure wasn't needed as the partition table had been restored) and Win8.1 loaded normally. I'd already done something similar with AOMEI where I restored the First Track after the AOMEI images had been restored. Using MBRWork fixes the non booting issue but I'm certainly not suggesting it as a solution. These apps need to be fixed.
