    How to create Windows bootimage backup...


    Is there a way to copy Windows data to a file on another disk or CD, such that if the Windows install gets broken, I could boot Linux, and do a 'copy' task of the file BACK to the Windows device/partition, and have bootable Windows?

    I've done it once with an Ubuntu install like so:
    Code:
    sudo cp /dev/sdb<x> /dev/sdc<y>
    but that copied an entire disk (120G to another 120G). I want to copy only the data necessary for Windows to boot.

    Check if PartImage support Windows OS.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
