so badly that it wont even boot up, you can start True Image from the Bootable CD.
You have to create this from the programme while the OS is still bootable, of course, which you have done.
Put the CD in the drive and restart the PC, choosing to boot from the CD. How you do this depends on the motherboard/BIOS...
You may have to change settings in the BIOS, or you may have the option, during the initial starting up, of pressing one of the "F" keys on the keyboard which will give you a choice of what to boot from.
Naving booted from the CD, the programme is very much the same as if you'd started it from windows.
With regard to needing to restore after the 15 days... you'll have to pay for the full version!
Does that help?
