invalid system disk

hi everyone, I'm new here
I try to explain my problem.
I have in my company old machines that work with win98 and 2,5 HDD max capacity 8 GB.
2 years ago I made an image of the HDD in case of drive failure (with AOMEI Backupper).
Today I tried to load the HDD image on a new (used) HDD to restore the system after a problem but I received the following error just after the bios splash screen and HDD detection: "invalid system disk, replace disk and then press any key"
Where I do wrong? the image seems to be the same ( I took also some screenshoots from HDD management to evaluate partitions)

the problem is about MBR?
thanks for all your suggestions

    Did you Clean the new HDD with Windows Diskpart before you did the restore?
    And is Windows 98 supported by AOMEI? I doubt it.
  • Windows 98? Not supported. It's 2019 now, time to upgrade your system.
  • it's no time to joke please 
    I know exactly what I'm asking but maybe you think that this is a only a old pc.
    This is a old OS istalled in one more than 150K $ machine; the OS cant be upgraded so what are my options?
    anyway the problem was solved yesterday
