    Here's a a post from someone who reported similar problems (system image restore worked fine in Win 8.1, but fails in Win 10 with same error code: Solved 0x80070057 error at the end of system image restore - Windows 10 Forums.
    .....
    Nice find John - thanks!

    I followed the post to the resolution on SysNative.

    This might be exactly what Nick needs to fix the System Image restore. We've danced around using Macrium and I had to try the solution in order to understand the process. I did not take it all the way to a restore - I only mimicked what the steps would be.

    Before Nick tries this approach there are two things already in motion:

    1) I asked Nick to make Disk 0 inactive - waiting to see if the machine booted or not after the change
    Nick might have to use his phone to let me know the status - not sure at this point.

    2) The disk schema has to be returned to Disk 0 as the Windows drive and Disk 1 as the HP partition.
    I'm not sure how the change occurred, but changing the physical connections of the disks will revert the order to what it was.

    Well, I tried what you said, but the repair didn't work. It keeps booting to disk 1 ???? After I exit diskpart from doing an inactive to par 1 of disk 0, and reboot, then check Disk 0, it's active, how come?

    I've read that solution, but got lost with the Macrium Reflex stuff.

    I'd like to see your Disk Management - again

    Please use the dmDskmgr-vg.mmc in dmDskmgr-vg.zip that you downloaded before (might be in your Downloads folder)
    I bolded the part about grabbing just the Disk Management window since the last screenshots were full screen and that makes the important information smaller

    Here is the custom Disk Management instructions (without the download part) again so you don't have to rummage through the thread to find them

    1. Open the compressed folder, dmDskmgr-vg.zip
      Double click dmDskmgr-vg.mmc to launch it
      Press the Open button if prompted Do you want to open this file?
      Answer yes to the User Account Control prompt

    2. Press Alt+PrtScn to grab a snapshot of just the Disk Management window
      Open Paint and Ctrl+V to paste it, then save the image


    3. Attach the image to a new post


    Thanks

    Ok, that looks as it should - Disk 1 is Active & Disk 0 is not Active

    The next thing is to switch the disk positions of HP_Pavillion ( E: ) and HP ( C: )
    The drive letters are not important right now, only the disk positions

    Your Disk Management image shows

    Disk 0: HP_Pavillion ( E: )
    Disk 1: HP ( C: )

    What you want is

    Disk 0: HP ( C: )
    Disk 1: HP_Pavillion ( E: )

    again, don't worry about the drive letters, I only included them to help identify the disks

    You'll have to shut down the machine, open the case and swap the cables
    Restart the machine and - yep ... another Disk Management screen shot if you please

    Thanks

    Uh, yes I will proceed with your question first though. Disk 0 is plugged it SATA 0 and Disk 1 into SATA 1, so why isn't the drive numbers correct?

    There was some discussion earlier between fdegrove and myself where fdegrove suggested in post# 44 changing BIOS instead of physically pulling the cable.

    Furthermore, to the best of my knowledge, there's no need to physically pull SATA or power cables to disable a drive. Disabling it in BIOS should suffice.
    .....
    Could you check the BIOS to see if that might be causing it?

    If the disks in BIOS are OK, then all I can offer is that you swap the cables anyway, even though the correct drive seems to be connected to the correct port. I have to rely on you for this sort of thing since I can't reach the box from here
