I am running ghost 2003 command -fdsp, but once we have cloned the image and restored it onto exactly the same make and model machine, we are force to run win7 setup and run a repair which fixes the boot menu, I want to prevent this requirement to fix the problem, any suggestions besides the obvious of using Windows AIK tools, new versions of ghost/clonzilla.

I want to prevent the problem in the first place, it's 1 partition only, on a levano workstation m82 with UEFI and a 100mb system reserved partition.

Windows Boot Manager screen and states:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1.Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2.Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3.Click "Repair you computer." If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Status: 0xc000000e

Sometimes Windows creates 2 partitions so I think you need to copy that 100MB system reserved partition too. –  ZippyV Aug 21 '12 at 11:51
    
the ghost image contains the 100mb partition - after checking it's content it contains system volume info, boot manager and bcd settings. –  hirogen Aug 21 '12 at 13:36

You need to make the restored partition ACTIVE by using DISPART. At a command prompt:

DISKPART
LIST DISK  
SELECT DISK x (where x is the physical boot disk)  
LIST PARTITION  
SELECT PARTITION x (where x is the partition where Windows resides)  
ACTIVE  
EXIT  
EXIT  

Then reboot.

You may encounter the dreaded "BOOTMGR is missing" error after rebooting. You will then need to use the Windows 7 install DVD and allow it to repair or manually by entering BOOTREC /FIXMBR and BOOTREC /FIXBOOT.
