vista/windows 7 upgrade, bootable new disk

July 7, 2011 at 20:34:15
Specs: Windows 7
I have a vista machine which I upgraded to Windows 7, and would like to make a bootable new disk to use as a backup if my machine fails. It won't let me make it boot-able. How can I do that?

create a recovery disk from the backup and restore center and then create an image of your drive and store it on another partition or external/internal drive

you can boot with the rcovery disk and reimage your drive with all your files and proggies in 20mins.

I would recommend to stick with Windows back up as in response #1 since if you ever need to restore to a completely new installation of Windows 7 (complete drive loss) you will not need to find and download the program again and you will not have to worry that the program is no longer available.
ALSO, I would recommend creating a Windows 7 Repair Disk while you are at it since it will offer you additional options for repair if you do have major problems in the future. It will let you do a start up repair, a system restore/repair (when you cannot get to the built in system restore or it does not work), and a few other options.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
