You may need to include the -FDSP switch to restore the image so that the original disk signature that includes information such as drive letters is preserved.
If all of the above fail to capture/restore a working image, you may need to use the -IA, -ID or -IR switch when you capture the image.

For more information about sector switches, see the document Switches: Sector Copy.
