You can use the following tutorial to create a system backup image

Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

If you format the partition you can copy/move the backup data (may need to format the partition first)

If you ever needed to, Using the Windows 7 DVD (booted) you can use the restore option in 'Advanced Recovery Options' to restore from the image you copied/saved onto the blank partition.

Hope this helps

Please note

If your laptop has a POST recovery app then you cannot use it to restore your Windows 7 image

Quite possibly

I've not tried it though so wouldn't know 100%. You will however need to 'Upgrade' and not 'Clean Install' in order to utilize the OEM Restoration Tools
