I'm getting the "blue screen of death" UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME page on my IBM ThinkCentre XP Professional Edition desktop computer. (I think I screwed things up a bit when I attempted to restore the system using a XP Home Edition CD which came with my Compaq netbook, as the IBM didn't come with any CDs.)
Anyway, I regularly backed up the C: drive using the inbuilt Windows Backup utility. However I didn't use the Automated System Recovery Wizard mode, just the standard Backup Wizard. There's a backup file sitting on an external hard drive I have.
How would I go about restoring this backup file to the (possibly corrupt) internal C: drive? And if I need to end up buying a new OEM hard drive, is it relatively easy to restore my old data to it using the file created with the Backup utility?
