Are you saying that you used dd to backup a partition to a file? If so then you can use dd to copy that file to the appropriate partition on the hard drive. If you can't run Linux from the hard drive during this process you can boot Linux from a live CD such as Knoppix.

Backup Partition file system must match source file system. In other words. If backing up a Linux EXT3 file system. Destination partition has to be Ext3 File system. Using DD.

If backing up Windows. NTFS is fine.


My POST on How I do it.
