Hi, I have a compac (HP) laptop (CQ61-41us notebook), running WIN7 home premium, 64 bit. Aside from the normal file backup via the western digital software, I have several windows 7 generated iso images of my laptop stored on my external WD drive. Using windows repair disk, my computer does not recognize the external drive to access the disk images. It just asks to insert the last disk into optical drive. My images are on a folder on my external drive. There is no option to navigate to it!!! This is the first time I've needed to restore an image, and I can't access them!! This should be an easy operation that could be started in a few minutes. I have been screwing around with this for more than 24 hours! Am I missing something simple here? any ideas?
