I have a windows vista system from Dell (xps). On the C drive there is a c partition and a D partition. On the D drive I believe there is the data to reset the system to factory original conditions.
Lately I have been having some hard drive problems. Upon boot up the system occasionally runs a consistency check (chkdsk) and sometimes finds some problems. I think the drive may not have a lot of time left. I am about to get a new PC, but would still like to keep this one (son plays games, etc.)
Is it possible to buy a new C drive but have the image from the other D partition used to create the image on the new drive?
Not sure if I have the original Vista install disc or not.
Thanks for any suggestions.
