Hi All,

   I have a laptop on which I have installed Win 7 O.S and all the updates and other software required.
 
   Whenever I want to format my laptop, I want my current image which has all the software installed at the initial setup and use the same whenever I have issues with.

   Symantec Ghost is one tool I think we can use. Any other s/w by which we can ease up the process and keep a copy in my DVD .

   Help Appreciated.

Thanks
Aman Khan

Here is a good starting guide. Although I prefer to make the boot cd directly and boot to the menu.

The Builtin Backup program of Windows 7 does exactly that, it creates an image of the complete system. You can restore the image via the Windows 7 installation DVD, and you can also mount the image and copy back files or folders if needed.
