A few years back,when I got my PC formatted from service centre,the engineer created a ghost backup and told me that i could use it in future to quickly format my PC.I didnt have much knowledge about PC at that time,and whatever he told me is history.
Now ,I was planning to use it to format my PC since I dont have XP cd,
but I dont have any idea how to go about it .Can anyone help me with it ??

Thanks in advance

** I am not going to format very soon,but I wanted to keep the option open in case my PC detiorates due to persistent problems I am facing as mentioned here.

When you don't have the Xp cd, then you have a problem, indeed.
But you told that the mechanic have in the past installed a program that you can use in the future for quick format the drive.
From my opinion can you still use that program.
I don't know, why you said, it is history.
I can tell you, you must do this and this, but with that you don't come far.
I think that it is smart from you, that you ask at a good friend or he\she has still Windows Xp install cd., if not than is there only the possibility that you buy a new o.s.
