Creating Recovery BackUp Image of Whole Computer

Hello

I had seen many articles and tutorials but i didnt found a right tutorial on how to create a reovery backup image of whole computer.

In brief, i had recently purchased a new laptop and created partitions using hiren's boot cd and installed windows 7 ultimate. And we know that windows 7 creates a system file partition when installing the OS.

Well, i had installed motherboard and other required drivers and softwares. Now, i would like to create a whole computer (all drives including system files drive) drives backup image to recover on system drive failure.

I had a 160GB external hard disk and i want to create a bootable recovery image of whole computer onto my external hard disk, so that i can "Repair/Recover" my whole computer drives when it fails

Can anyone provide me a step by step guide on creating the bootable recovery image using norton host?

Thanks

Only if you install Win7 into unallocated space.You can easily avoid getting a 100 MB SRP.

Ghost 15 creates partition images (not entire drive images) so look in Disk Management to view your partitions and then create a Ghost 15 image for each partition. If you have a HD failure then restore the images to a new HD, in order, one at a time.
