Re: Full System restore

The only way that you can hope for a successful recovery using that TN, is to follow the TN.
Since you need to start with reinstallation of the OS, (This procedure requires Windows installation media from Microsoft in order to perform reinstallation of the operating system. The same version/suite must be used) you should ideally choose overwite.
Just my humble opinion....

Do not restore non-system (data) drives at this point.
