Caveat: “ When imaging ..  the imaging program appears to look at the old disk and if it is a different version/format the WDS application  terminates the imaging process at that point.
Different variants of the original OS and/or format will cause the application to terminate at different points of the process”.
The only way out of the problem is to completely wipe the old software including the disk partitions.
This is done by using a tool called “DiskPart”.
