Image Backup

I'm using an application that allows be to boot from cd and then select the partitions that will copy saved as image files that can be used for restoring the system. The application created its own secure partition for the files.

I've restored the partitions and then rebooted the system but I get the message - reboot failure, incorrect mount point.

Can anyone advise what might be the problem.

At what stage do you get the error message? This is important as it could either be a message from the Linux kernel, or (more likely) from the application. And if it is the application, you're going to have to give its name so that people familiar with it can suggest possible causes.

Since the partition created its own partition to store the image file, it may of changed how the linux partitions should be referenced. Since you said it is a secure partition, it may be of an unknown type that looks like it is empty.

If your system boots with grub, you can try to select the kernel manually. The grub shell has autocompletion, with makes it easier to use. Another option is to boot with a live distro, or your rescue system and see what the partitions look like. Finally you will need to chroot to your system and correct your fstab file, and either the /etc/lilo.conf or grub's menu.lst file.
