Red- I was confusing the built in imaging tool in windows 7 yesterday with imagex. It's the built in tool that wanted to image all my drives. By default it wants to image all system partitions but I guess if you have programs installed onto other partitions it can confuse them as system drives. Not that I have programs installed onto each partition, I'm still not sure what was going on.
But making a PE disk with Imagex on it was on my list of things to do. Being able to make free "cold images" would be handy. Being a lazy person I was also wanting to try one of the GUI's, I think it's called Gimagex.
I was also hoping that I could put the necessary files together and have them work as a "portable" tool that I might be able to start with existing PE disks instead of making one just for imagex.

I have a 64-bit laptop with Win 7, but I think for now I'm good. I typically restore a system either from a full Ghost backup or reinstall from scratch. I don't see myself ever restoring a system to to original image.
