I recently messed up my PC, sent it to a shop for repairs and got back a fresh working Windows XP. I also used Norton Ghost to backup my HDD, since I messed up my PC for around 10 times and hope I would not do it again. My question is: Did I backup my entire HDD correctly? I asked the guy at the shop and he said reinstalling would require activation, which is a troublesome process, and I deleted my partition(OOPS.) So immediately upon switching on, I installed Ghost and did a backup so as to just use this image to restore back afresh if anything goes wrong.

Edit: I also would like to ask if there is any way to burn this image to disc, since I get errors when trying to burn this data to disc or save it to an external HDD.
