Windows 7: Repair Install has created random freezes every few hours

Mark,

All of them will either image or clone the entire drive, but it's the amount of data on it that matters. You can always resize the partitions later if need be.

Is there any way to save the image onto a USB drive? It keeps saying it's not a valid location. I've free'd enough room to save a backup image to an HDD but I cannot keep it on that drive for long... would transferring it to the USB stick afterwards work?

You really need another internal or external USB drive to store images due to size.

Did you look at the steps for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are same for retail? These explain how best to sequence the program and add-ons reinstalls.

Okay I have created a system image on one of my internal HDDs.
My USB stick is large enough to hold it. I can safely transfer the folder to a USB stick, correct? I don't mind if I have to transfer it back to actually use it if needed.

WindowsImageBackup files don't like to be moved. It needs to stay where it is first saved.

Okay, so far so good. The PC is yet to freeze once since re-installing Windows. I've installed things in steps and finished installing the last apps/games last night. We're about 16 hours later now and still stable. If I reach 48 hours stable I'll mark this solved.

Another problem has seeped in as well. If anyone is able to assist that would be great.
