You linked the solution with your question, so I am not sure where to start. You tried running from a command prompt and failed, did you try verifying VSS and SPP were running correctly?

I am guessing you are trying to do a full system backup, but it's generally easier, more efficient, and more useful to run "windows easy transfer" to an external disk or flash drive to backup all your data.

If you want to create a 100% usable image, I would recommend using GImageX to create a .WIM image.

These can be applied from the recovery console / boot up repair of any Windows disc. Full system backups can only be applied from a working operating system.
