Windows 7: Another Reinstall

29 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Another Reinstall

Happened again. SSD boot drive failed after just 5 weeks. It takes me an entire weekend(at least) to reinstall and reset everything. Not to mention lost saved passwords and some other important data that I did not get backed up which leads me to my question. Can I use my Last Windows Image backup to install on the new boot drive and if so how? Thank you for your response in advance.

I assume you backup up your system image to another disk.

If so:
System Image Recovery


Restore your computer from a system image backup
I would also recommend reading through the stickies in the Backup and Restore section of the forums, they have excellent advice.

Make sure you are getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Steps are the same for retail.

Then you'll know the image is a keeper, and can use it in place of reinstalls.
