Yep. But your first post mentioned restore points, which are available only in System Restore, which is completely unrelated to Windows Backup and has nothing to do with making an image or restoring a C drive.
Back to making an image. I know a bit about Windows Backup (imaging), but like many on this forum have given up on it and instead use other applications for imaging purposes.
I can't help you with Windows Backup imaging. It's a world unto itself, non-intuitive, cranky, etc. That's why I gave up on it.
I'd seriously advise you to not put images on a set of DVDs. They are much more prone to issues. Use a hard drive if at all possible.
