I have an image of Boot Camp with Windows 7, which was created by Carbon Copy Cleaner. I didn't realize that the image wasn't bootable until I had already deleted the partition.

I'd like to restore the partition with the image, and make it bootable, so that I can return back to where I was before deleting the partition. Is this at all possible to do?

Why don't you make a new Bootcamp partition, download CCC for windows and let it do its job?

There is no CCC for Windows. If you mean CCC for Mac, then it doesn't restore entire Boot Camp partitions because it won't be bootable; it is only able to restore individual files for a Boot Camp partition. It IS capable of making a bootable Mac partition, though, but that's obviously not what I'm looking for. – Gary Jan 24 '12 at 17:23
