Instead of the recovery disk, the tutorial that DavidW7ncus states that a backup image is an alternative. Does this have to be saved to a USB device or can it be saved to the laptop harddrive? In all honesty I dont quite understand the recovery disk/backup image thing.
And @AddRAM, by virtual copy I only meant a digital copy rather than the file on disk. As for switching, I was going to reformat my laptop anyway and it has the option for 64bit and therefore use all the available RAM. so I decided I'd go with that this time.
