  • Tool to convert partition into image for restoration?

    hi,
    i have a machine with 1 hard disk that has 2 partitions of 20 GB each; im looking for a tool that create a bootable image of my active and primary partition so that if i have to rebuild my machine with new OS and relevant software then i need to install everything from start.

    i tried norton ghost and true image from acronis but i was not able to use it properly due to lack of usage.

    what i want is simply a tool that can create a bootable image of my active partition so that i can restore a preinstalled WinXP with ms office from the image to save time and efforts.

    thanks in advance,
    Thanks,
    Bhavtosh

    Both Ghost and Acronis will do what you want.

    What do you mean by the above quote as I do not understand?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.

    2 2 1 1 2

      I've been using ImageX and WinPE which are included in WAIK. This page should have all the info you need: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...8WS.10%29.aspx.

      There is also DriveImage XML which can be installed on BartPE CD.

        Hi

        Did you try Acronis' Utilities>Clone Disk?
