Cannot restore laptop C: partition using external drive and amd64 WinPE boot cd

Please help

I had a hard disk crash in my laptop and can’t restore the backup. I have created a WinPE boot CD for Windows 7 (amd64) with Comodo Backup on it. When I boot using WinPE and run CBU and try and restore from my external hard disk to the C: drive I get a message “The restore destination is in use. Do you want to schedule a restore at the next boot” and “error code 15 (Busy or in use)” is displayed in the summary box. When I reboot CBU does not start the restore it just boots up as normal.

How do I get around this problem? I thought WinPE boot cd was supposed to avoid this!


Sorted it myself.

Formatted the new disk and the restore worked fine.
