How to Build a Restore CD???

By gbishop ·
I would like to ask for some help in creating a bootable cd that will be able to restore my operating system to some default setup Like Hewlett Packard or Aptiva brands do
I want this because their is a optimum system configuration that I want frozen in time so to speak and to easily reset my pc to this state
My ideal restore cd could do a full restore
formating the drive first
A partial Restore just updating or resettting default settings

All feedback or links to howto sites are welcome

Kind Regards
Greg Bishop

Windows 98 has a system tools that has backup files that were created during the time you installed the system that could be used to accomplish what you want,Click Start>Programs>Accessories>Systems Tools,then select the Tools menu and check the drop down menu for the appropiate file that points to the backup files.

almost all cd write programs have a boot cd option ie:nero and easy cd 3/4 you would have to explore the full range of options available with the software but using easy cd 4. I created a pretty good boot cd using the combinded win98 start disk and adding a full system backup.

I would recommend trying Symantec Ghost for the full restore. Although this would not work for the Partial restore. You can download a trial copy which should be adequate for your needs with the full restore. Ghost works by snapshot of your machineat the time you want and stores this data as an image file to a specified location i.e CD. using a floppy disk you would then be able to read this CD and restore your machine to optimum system configuration.
