    Hello,
    I created an image of all the partitions of my notebook (win8.1)
    1=efi
    2=boot (fat32), I mounted the partition and then I created a image otherwise I get a ntfs-3g error
    3=reserve
    4=windows 8.1
    5=recovery

    The "boot" is a fat32 partition

    I load the gpt scheme with sgdisk then I format the drive en restore the images. (all scripted)
    When I boot I always get a 0xc0000225 error (/windows/system32/winload.efi) error, but the file is not the issue.

    When I check bcd, the boot device / os device is always "unknown". I can manual fix this with bootrec, then it wil boot to windows.

    But where does it go wrong? Everything is the same! I dont know if I should ask this somehwere else, but maybe someone has experienced this before.

    Thank you

    I think I found it. I restored the partition scheme with sgdisk en then I did the -G (randomize the guid). I think this caused the bcd could not find the drive when the image was restored.
    I remove the -G option in the script and now windows boots fine.
