Just received my win 7 and ready to install. I want to ghost my Vista just in case. Can I buy an external hard drive to do this job, or will I need to buy an internal? Its for a laptop, if win 7 is as good as the reviews then i do not want to return to Vista

Using Acronis True Image and an external drive, you could backup your Vista completely to the external drive.

With these two, you can create a complete image of your current system prior to installing 7.

If things go badly, you can restore your system to it's previous (Vista) state.
