No, use Disk Backup to create an image to a USB external hard drive. Remember to create the bootable media but on an XP computer this requires a large download. If you have a Windows 7 computer than create the bootable media on the Windows 7 computer as the download is smaller.

If you do decide to create the bootable disk on the XP computer you can burn the iso with isoburner and install on the XP computer instead of mounting it with Magic Iso to install.

So to start with the first thing I need to do is create the image using Disk Backup.

When I do this does that mean that everything I have on my external hardrive will be wiped out?

No, it will create a disk image and the file will be copied to the external but you need to have enough free space on the external drive to accept the image file. Disk Backup will create a folder on the external with the backup image file.

Yes I have created the disk image file on my external hardrive successfully what is the next step?

Verify the image. If it verifies as valid then keep the image and after installing any new programs or updates create a new image. It can be incremental or differential or another full backup.

 

Did you create a bootable disk of Aomei backupper? This is needed if your hard drive fails and you need to recover the image.

 

Other than the above your good to go.

Yes I have verified the disk image and it says it is good.

No I did not create a bootable disk of Aomei Backupper.

The computer that I am typing on now has the option of XP or Windows 7 when it is first started up but my computer is just Windows XP.

No my computer is Windows XP and my mums computer has 2 hardrives in it and when I start Mums computer up you have to decide if you want XP or Windows 7.

I need to create bootable media I will have to study the tutorial.

If you are dealing with only your computer then create the bootable media on your XP computer. You will need to download the AIK as I posted. Install the AIK and then create the bootable media.

If your mother's computer is dual boot with XP and Windows 7 you would select Windows 7, then install Aomei Backupper. In Windows 7 create the bootable media. There is no need to download the AIK in Windows 7.

It says "Right click on Windows AIK ISO file->select MagicISO->Mount->the ISO file path"

When I do this instead of getting the ISO file path I am prompted to install  Magicdisk Virtual cd/dvd manager.

You don't need to mount with Magic Iso. You can burn the AIK iso to a CD using isoburner in XP and then double click the exe file.

 

Don't use Magic Iso. Use WinCDEmu. Install. Then right click and click Select Drive Letter and Mount.

Edit: Uninstall Magic Iso then install WinCDEmu.

The AIK iso is 1.7 GB and a cd is only 700 MB, does this mean that I need to burn it to a DVD disk?

I have used WinCDEmu to mount the AIK iso and have successfully installed it on my computer.

I am still not sure about the next step though about creating the bootable media cd/dvd.

If you successfully installed the AIK on the XP computer then you should be able to create the bootable CD or USB flash drive per Aomei's wizard.

 

You want to use Windows PE Legacy Boot Mode.

Yes after all this time I have finally created the bootable media disk and have tested it and it works so this is good.
