Windows – System restore from NAS drive using system restore disk

nassystem-restorewindows 7

I have a Seagate Flexdrive, onto which I save my backup Windows 7 images. To test that system image restore worked, I tried a dummy run. When I booted system restore disk, it said that it could find the NAS drive. I'm assuming that its system restore disk does not load up network drivers. Anyone know what might be causing this or have a workaround?

When you select "System Image Recovery" from the tools list in Windows RE, it will give and error "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer", click "cancel" then "Next" then "advanced" button, here you will be able to search for a network location or load a driver for your NAS if it is needed.
