I use Paragon and others here use Acronis. You can try Chronos the 2nd 's suggestion. I haven't heard of it before. When it comes to drive management/backups I think the paid for versions are best, plus you can get good support (from Paragon anyway) if updates are needed for newer OSs.

By the way, how did it go changing to AHCI in the bios?

rdave 13 posted this which lets you download W/8 ISO.

W/8

I know it is not the image you are looking for but it will come in handy if you do not already have a DVD of W/8.

Just over 2Gb download so use a DVD and not a CD if using it.

Have a look here.

I had partial success with Win 7 trying out a restore from an image, some programs had to be reinstalled. Some here couldn't find the image on the external drive using the DVD to boot from. Worth a try anyway but not for me.
