Creating an image of my Windows XP computer and burning it on to CD or DVD
Posted on 2004-10-23
I want to setup my home computer with Windows XP Professional, all the applications I wish to use, printers, Direcway Internet software, screensavers, AIM (AOL instant messenger), etc. I want to be able to setup my computer completely, then create a bootable image of my computer setup. I wish to create the image on bootbale CD's or DVD's. I want to do this to enable myself to wipe my hard drive clean and install the image I created when and if my computer should need a fresh start. I tried using Norton Ghost before, but I had no luck. I originally wanted to Ghost the image to a spare hard drive, then when the time came, Ghost the image back to the original drive, to get a fresh start. I think it would be easier if I were to put the time and effort into creating image CD's or DVD's. However, I'm not sure how to do this, or what software I should purchase. Any help I can get would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
