Hello all, I was browsing the forums trying to find out how to create a recovery partition on my hdd. I stumbled across this tutorial: Recovery Partition - Create
This is very similar to what I want to do and I am hoping you guys will help me with this since I'm a noob to Windows 7. What I want to do is:
1) have a partition that I can f8 into or a startup option to boot into if f8 isn't doable.
this f8/boot option (stored on the HDD of my computer) will launch the Windows RE, for fixing startup issues etc, same as running the Windows 7 reapair disc.
2) I want to be able to choose the "restore windows from a sytem image" option, BUT... I want to use my own image that has all MY software and updated drivers
etc as opposed to a generic day 1 windows image.
I don't know what you guys would need for info so I'll provide all the info I think is pertinent.
system: IBM intellistation mpro 6225-22u, 3.6GHz intel p4, 3.0Gb RAM, 320Gb HDD, Galaxy (Nvidia) GeForce gt620 graphics card, CD/DVD burner, HDD has 2 partitions: C: (windows 7 OS and programs) D: (my music/pics/vids/etc)
please note I have used folder properties on most of my user folders, to change location to D:
Log On Password is set but can be turned off if it makes it easier.
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.
Any help accomplishing this would be greatly appreciated.
I usually triple boot my systems Windows XP/Ubuntu/New Linux Distro I want to try. I'm not computer stupid but I'm not some IT guru with 27 years experience either.
Thank you for helping/taking the time to read my post.
