it is first created within the Windows environment. If I use the boot CD to create the image, then I can restore an image (starting) from the Windows environment. I need a command line solution that will force True Image to go to a pre-Windows environment to create the image instead of creating it during the active Windows session. The error I get is that during the final reboot after the restoration, the DOS screen reports: File \Windows\System32\winload.exe Status: 0xc0000225 The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt. This forces me to do a repair job with the original CD.
