This is presented as an experiment and my result. Paragon doesn't officially support Win 8 yet so your results may vary!!!!! I thought I'd see what would happen trying to backup Win8 with Paragon paid B&R 11 using the WinPE CD on a MBR disk. I made an image that included the MBR, System Reserved and C partition using the WinPE CD. I put in a spare HD and restored the whole disk, that is the above imaged partitions. Paragon did a search for Windows as it always does at the end of the restore and then presented the successful completion message. Restarted the PC and up came Win 8 and it appears to be just fine but obviously I haven't tried everything but this usually isn't where incompatible image restores fall down - they usually just plain don't run. I should mention that the Windows 8 imaged just had the 35 updates applied before imaging.
