Does anyone know if its possible to make a bootable backup of windows. i.e. so as to be able to start and use windows from the cd drive in the event of problems with the operating system on the hard drive.
The reason for the question is that following recent windows/hard disk problems I was unable to bootup windows, Use of a rescue floppy disk or booting up using the windows installation CD gave very limited access -no CD writer etc- so what I'm actually after is to create a bootable windows mirror on CD to enable access to these facilities.
Data recovery. 2 daughters, university work, files too large to go on a floppy. Needless to say the last time I had a problem they had deadlines that had to be met. Because the work had been quite intensive there was a significant ammount that hadn't been on the last regular CD data backup.
