Thank you Paul for your guidance.
I had experimented before with diskpart just to display the situation and not yet trying to delete the two remaining superfluous partitions. Surprisingly, it listed 3 partitions only for disk 0 (see
I then tried to delete the two remaining superfluous partitions in IFW just to learn what the procedure would be (I had not seen any delete menu item or button before in IFW). It was not as straightforward as I had hoped. I worked through Steps 1 to 5 of the Chapter "Using Image for Windows to Restore an Image" of the IFW Manual until I arrived at Step 6 (page 92 of the Manual) where I found the Delete item in the context menu of the destination partition (which need not be the proper one to host the partition to be restored but can be any partition that I want to delete) (See ATTACHMENT 2).
At that point I deleted successfully the two partitions in question. The result after the first deletion is shown in ATTACHMENT 3
Is there a shorter way of deleting partitions in IFW?
I then thought I was prepared to run chgdtype.tbs. But there is more to it than I had foreseen. I am not good at command line operations and make a lot of syntax mistakes, which results in a perceived never-ending trial-and-error phase. I finally managed somehow to run chgdtype.tbs (without parameters!) starting from my TBWinRE/TBLauncher – Command Prompt where I accessed the path to the unzipped "tbosdts_pro_bootit_en" folder (contained in Win7), which is "D:\TBOSDTS Pro for BootIt\TeraByte OS Deployment Tool Suite Pro for BootIt V1.61a" in the Recovery Environment. I ended up with the following error message:
"D:\TBOSDTS Pro for BootIt\TeraByte OS Deployment Tool Suite Pro for BootIt V1.61a\scripts\chgdtype.tbs
Interface not supported."
So, would you please give me the correct command lines for applying chgdtype.tbs to the GPT disk from within the TBWinRE (which TBLauncher Item?) and from within the booted Win7 (on SSD)?
