Create system image problem/errors ???

Whatz up everybody ??

Hey anybody else having this issue with the upgrade of Win7 HP on a HP machine as a matter of fact as well with there upgrade version.

It's like what i am trying to do is this.

New with True Image - Couple basic kinda questions ??? | Forums

That is my post an explain pretty much what i am trying to do (even though that one focus's on that certain program for questions there but)

mainly trying to do a system restore image disc. That way every time i want to or have to reformat i do not have to go through the whole damn going back to Vista then the whole upgrade process again.

Anyways so speaking with HP of course we know there is no way to do this or for me even to get a HD with factory Win7 installed on it WITH a win7 recovery partition factory done. So this is really the only way to do it. Where it would kinda actually be like a Win7 recovery partition.

OK with that being said. Speaking with HP came up the idea and notice the new features and system in the backup and recover section where you can create a repair disc or create a system image.

Well they said to create a repair disc and i could use it to go back to a so called day one install or fresh install/upgrade of win7.

OK we know this is not true as it is only a repair disc only so.. This is where it gets back to "is these screwed up and not working for you guy's either" as the title say's.

The one link inside the backup section that says "create system image" is not working. It kinda stops and freezes up half way through on same spot every time. When it gets to disc#3. It tells to take out and insert another disc label it blah blah blah.. but at that point will not even open the disc tray. Gotta cancel it out and then restart (even to open the tray and get the disc out). More less to even try and finish the process. Which i tried it 3 times and same thing every time.

Using dvd-rw's as well. My systems fine and plenty bad azz so i know that's not it either or that that is what is making it freeze up. Soo.. anybody else try this yet and having the same problem with that feature ??

Thanks in advance.

Can you rewrite the paragraph that begins with "which we know" so we can better understand what you are trying to say?

I tried to make a system image using DVD. I needed about 5 disc's. On disc 2 about 1/2 way through, it just kept running without burning anything to the DVD. I tried to stop the process, but could not. Finally, I had to just stop the process, just to get the CD out. I decided not to try the process again, since stopping the computer, without a proper shut down, is not the best thing for the Hard Drive.

yeah did the same thing to e basically as explained above.

Im using a different way and image program now as i didnt want to put it on my EHD because wanted a fresh clean upgrade install back up image i could fall back on if needed. Kinda kinda a self made win7 recovery partition. But on disc. i now plan on making both. one on EHD and disc.

Him,

yes since this way above isnt working with the default image backup the way i need/want. Im going to use a program like trueimage. im not going to use it now though because of support paid reasons plus because of a few others like linux boot up and as said a few other reasons with the program itself. as i found a couple better ones plus with better support if needed.

thxs tho for the input.
