Creating System Image with Windows 7/Ubuntu dual boot

Hi, I currently have Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) and Ubuntu dual booted on my Dell XPS M1530. Everytime I run it, it locks up at about the half way point then it freezes. Then I have to hard shutdown the system. It does this everytime, do I need to uninstall Ubuntu? Can anybody help me out with this? Thanks

Welcome!

It doesn't sound like Ubuntu is causing the problem, as long as you're booted into Windows okay.

Try saving the backup in a different location. You may also test the drive you are saving to: Hard Drive Diagnostics Tools and Utilities (Storage) - TACKtech Corp.

ok, I checked my hard drive and found no errors and I tried using a different external hard drive to save the image. I left it running all night and it's still the same problem

Try updating your USB and chipset drivers.

If that doesn't work, you may need to do a repair install.

ok, i'll try that. For the repair install, will I need to reinstall Ubuntu and any Windows programs?

Nope, the repair install shouldn't touch any of that.
