I had a Windows 7 system, which was hibernated. Then I took an image of the drive while it was hibernated. I'd like to restore the state of the system. I've mounted the image, which is 320gb. The contents are less than 30 gb, though. So could I do the following and still have it work?
- Format the internal HDD from which the image was taken as NTFS.
- Copy all the files and folders including hiberfile.sys from the mounted image to the newly formatted drive.
- Boot the original machine from the external drive.
Thanks in advance.
