Windows 7: System image save location

System image save location

I followed the tutorial to enter system audit mode. From that point on, I installed all third party drivers and apps. My question is, how do I make a single system image that I can save to USB to restore to a fresh state should I need to? All I need is the image so I can save it to USB and restore from if necessary.

Any help guys?

stupot65, first you must have a usb device that has the required storage for a whole image of your drive.

Is your usb device a external hard disk or a usb stick?

If you are still in Audit Mode, quite Sysprep first selecting as highlighted in screenshot below:

Then use any imaging solution to create image. This way the image when restored to any computer will always perform a so called OOBE (Welcome) boot, first boot after installation, asking initial user credentials and PC name etc.
