I've installed ubuntu 12.04 on a asus n550jv which comes with pre installed windows 8. i was able to set it up as dual boot by following the uefi guide (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI). I've also created a drive image backed up (containing windows 8, and the rest of the partitions) in an external hard drive using window's system recovery tool. When ubuntu trusty was release, i wiped out my entire hard drive and installed ubuntu 14.04, thinking that i still have the backup image of windows 8 together with the recovery partition on a separate drive.

I would like to restore the win 8 partition and it's recovery partition without removing ubuntu trusty, what are the tools i can use to to this using the vhd file(s) that i have from the backup?

Thanks
