Just because I may need it .. (to be possibly discovered later) ..
Many times .. I Image the old system .. Before I recover it.
After I'm sure the old Image is not needed .. I delete it.

It's one of those situations .. Where if you don't do it ...
the odds are greater that you'll wish you did

Ok, I did everything. Quite frankly I'm very happy I did it, because now my fingerprint reader works again .

The first time I installed win7, I also downloaded all the drivers from the HP website, but it seems now that it is a better idea not doing the updates. the software still works perfectly.

Glad to hear all is running well. Well done.

As already pointed out, the easiest way to make images is free Macrium. Here is a tutorial I made that shows you the whole imaging cycle. This is not to say that other imaging programs like Norton Ghost, Paragon, Acronis, etc. would not do the job. But I have used many of those and find them much more complicated than Macrium. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
