Hi Robert,

You should be able to use the procedure outlined in the 6.2.2 manual.

Important note: WinPE 3.0 has issues that can cause the ASR part of the
restore to fail. Therefore make sure you use WinPE 3.1, which consists of
installing the AIK for Windows 7 (WinPE 3.0), then applying the
"supplemental" package for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 SP1 (which brings
the WinPE version to 3.1).

WinPE 3.0:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=696DD665-9F76-4177-A811-39C26D3B3B34

Supplemental package that brings WinPE to 3.1 (must be installed on top of
WinPE 3.0 using the XCOPY command described in the link):
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0AEE2B4B-494B-4ADC-B174-33BC62F02C5D

We are currently evaluating the best way to update the documentation for
ASR restores on NT 6 OSes, but the version in the client manual for now is
the procedure.

After booting the WinPE media, you don't need to do anything prior to the
restore. ASR handles the partitioning of your disks for you.

And yes, there can be multiple versions of the system state available for
restore.

Important note: The ASR restore method is supported only with BIOS-based
systems. If you have a physical system with EFI, it won't work.
