the maual supplied states that the o/s is located on the h/d and not accesable,so how does one make a backup copy against any future mishaps should a full wipe and reinstall become needed.the o/s on the sys is xp home, can anyone tell what happens if i upgrade to xp pro,or indeed if i wish to install a differant o/s altogether,will the original o/s be lost forever,i ask the forum before makers site as i know help is quicker and better here than there,fingers crossed
chaosman thanks

Its just on an unactive partition ,therefore hidden ..A utility like partition magic or drive image would enable you to see and even copy using Cdrw(dim2k2)or hard drive to hard drive,but do read the guideline on powerquest site
