    I found this on another forum, I don't take credit for it, but I hope it helps you

    the cause of the "glue parts error" problem - the
    active partition had changed.

    A. go to
    http://support.microsoft.com/defaul...&NoWebContent=1
    and find out how to use FDISK to get to this DOS menu:

    1. Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive
    2. Set active partition
    3. Delete partition or Logical DOS Drive
    4. Display partition information
    5. Change current fixed disk drive
    (this option is only available if you
    have two physical hard disks in the computer)

    B. Select option 2. You will get a menu that looks something like:

    Partition Status Type Volume Label Mbytes System Usage
    C: 1 A PRI DOS (your label) 1200 FAT16 50%
    2 EXT DOS (your label) 1200 NTFS 50%

    C. Select "2" to make it the active partition.

    Your restore should now run without the error.
