So, I just got Windows 7 Ultimate, and I am currently running the RC (Which is Windows 7 Ultimate as well, so I figure I don't need to do a clean install). I want to do a clean install though.
What I am wondering is whether or not I can just use an image. I have two hd's, so could I just make an image and save it on the second hd (as well as a program to interpret that image), wipe my first hd to do a clean install, install Win 7 Ultimate, and then just use the image to get all my files back?
And I cannot remember exactly now, but would i still need to reinstall everything if I used an image? I'm guessing I do, in which case it would probably be simpler to do a clean install and use the install disks to put everything back (considering this is a recently-built computer with maybe 50 files, a few hundred pictures, and then like 2 10+ gb programs (those are what I don't want to re-install lol))
