I'm unable to make a virtual disk large enough to satisfy the Windows restore process, so I'm giving up. But I think it might have been possible otherwise, so I'll mark this as the answer.

Okay, I have created a write-through virtual disk backed by the physical disk that contains my WindowsImageBackup. If I add that vmdk to my VM then it can see the backup! However, a new problem... (See my updated question above)

Hmm, this is a good idea but I'm getting the message "Windows cannot find a system image on this computer" when I try to restore from a Repair Disk. No matter what I try it doesn't seem to be able to see my secondary SATA drive, which is where I stored the WindowsImageBackup. I guess I would need to add it as a SATA device to the virtual machine? But I can't do that because it only supports virtual disks, not physical disks? Is there any way around that?

It looks like this only works on a physical disk, which I don't have. I made an image of the disk and then reformatted and installed OS X. So even if I could run a Windows program, it would need to work on a system image, not a physical disk.
