"Error Loading Operating System"

I am new to Mac and I am trying to find a solution for a full backup recovery. I have made a full image backup of my drive and stored it on an USB NTFS disk. I then created a HPFS+ partition on a USB drive and restored the image to it. I also set the partition to be bootable. However, when I try to boot from the USB drive, I get the error "Error Loading Operating System".

I tried a different hard drive, with the same problem. I tried restoring with SD, and I also tried Disk Utility. Both with the same problem. I even tried direct copy with SD from system to USB partition, with no success.

All I am trying to do is make sure that when I need to restore my backup image, it will actually work. I used WD and Seagate USB drives both work fine otherwise.
