Hello gang.. :trumpet:
A blonde moment.. :inlove:
Well I was thinking how would it be if I created my own install disk with all programs and windows updates running recently on my machine..
I don't think I have to explain how much pain we all go trough after windows crash, and having to reinstall all everything all over again.
I did some googlin' but all I found was few pages on how to slipstream SP2 into Win. XP (without recent security patches)
something I already have, but nothing on how to include existing programs/updates.
Does any of you guy's know how to do it and is willing to share the deep secret with us? :flowers:
Thanks in advance.. :thumbsup:

WARNING: You can NOT clone an OS which is currently in use. That's why we have a small second Linux installation on all of our machines so that we can boot this to clone our regular Linux partition.

Sounds like I'd need to make dual boot first to be able to do this.. Does it have to be a Linux? Besides I'm not familiar with that OS.
Thanks anyway Oldf@rt.. :thumbsup:

Not real sure. There are all sorts of Linux distros that run as a live CD. That is, it runs off the CD, it's not installed on your hard drive.
Of course, you'll still have to create a new partition

I prefer Acronis True Image (although it costs $50 US). It'll let you create a rescue CD which you can use to restore your system from an image that you have stored somewhere.

I install the OS, update it, install all my drivers, my security protection and my "must have" applications. I also put links to the data in my various applications to point the profiles at a different drive (particularly my Firefox profile, my Thunderbird profile, and My Documents) - this "pointer" lets you restore Windows and still have it pointing at the data on the other drive so you'll have access to all of your current data (that's a separate backup issue). Then save it all to an image that you can restore at a later date.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
