hi Josh, i seem to get a feeling that partimage-ng cannot support 'UEFI; based partitions, hence when it tries to restore an image to a disk with a previously installed linux partition, results in an error.
could you confirm that if partimage/partimage-ng could be used to capture/restore bare metal images of Windows? if this isn't true, then is WinPE the only option? ?? regards, prem.
