Windows 10 System Image Restore Failed - The Parameter is Incorrect


I backed up my computer by using Windows Backup and Recovery System Image. I have been using this technique for years with windows 7, 8 and 8.1. I use a System Repair disc to successfully restore image copies when necessary.

So I upgraded to Windows 10 and was able to make a new repair disc.

I made an image copy under Windows 10 and went to test the ability to recover using the Windows 10 system repair disc. The recovery seemed to be going fine, then at the end I get a message that the restore failed due to "The Parameter is Incorrect (0x80070057)". That wiped out my drive and all I could do was restore back to Windows 8.1 from a different backup and recovery set.

Any idea what causes this and how to fix it in Windows 10? I have seen posts for Windows 7 and 8, but they don't directly relate to my experience.
