anyone know if i can use nero to do this as it is pre installed

EzBackitup won't work. Great backup program (i use it myself) but not a Restore program.

Nero is also good for backups but you can't make a restore disk with it.

I don't know of any free Disk Imaging software (which is what you are after) however I'm worried about the PC not coming with some sort of recovery disk. Are you sure there isn't a recovery option somewhere you can invoke when needed?

I thought all manufacturers had to provide OS disks at least????

all that is supplied is a operating system cd for software that is preinstalled on hard drive

"all that is supplied is a operating system cd for software that is preinstalled on hard drive"

That is your Restore disk then - surely?

Double check with the PC manual that it is the Recovery Disk.
