Hard drive failing OS on DISE Partition Help

  pavel 14:29 26 Jun 05

I have an Aries pc running XP Home, As is the way nowadays the OS came as a DISE partition on the Hard disc with out a CD Disc of the OS.
Unfortunately I think the HD is about to give up the ghost (Started making noies and occasional error reports are becomong more frequent).
So what do I do ? I can backup my data onto another HD (yet to be installed) but what about the OS DISE Partition ? All I want to do is avoid
A. Losing my data. B Paying for XP on cd
Thanks fpor your help
