How to make a full system restore CD

Hi Folks,

This comes about as a result of trying to give someone some support with their PC (that I built) from a distance.

I see that if you buy an off the shelf PC, HP for instance it comes with a system restore disc which will reinstall windows and drivers for installed hardware. A one shot solution.

I have seen these discs deal with crashed and damaged installations and full clean installations on new hard disk, all virtually hands free.

Anyone know how this is done and how a numpty like me can make one?

Thanks all, Epirb.

Ray,
Looks like t, it also loks like I have been over ambitious about the amount of time I've got this morning.

Apologies, will revisit this this evening,

Many thanks, Epirb.

Not wishing to be 'off-topic' but why not go to the page and add the page to favourites? It can then be renamed memorably. Saves all the 'added to my postings' etc.

I use GHOST or DRIVE IMAGE, never have a problem. Either copy image to CD or DVD or even create a hidden partition on the HDD. Saves many hours re-installing everything bit by bit.A format and re-install here took me 32 mins from start to finish. Most PCs have large HDDs and/or CD writers these days, not to have a Restore Disc is criminal !!

Please correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that link for a Linux boot CD?
