And armed with G4U (or Acronis if that's too hard to use) why can't we save an image of that drive to something else like an external USB hard disk?
The title says it all. I've got a 'modern' pc with Windows XP home installed, but my C drive is 16 years old(Don't ask how that happened). Just yesterday it has started making noises and will only boot half of the time. I almost always get the Bios message "Boot disk failure" when starting up the machine.
I no longer have my Windows XP "companion disk" that was purchased with this machine. How do I save my installation of windows? Can I make a cd/dvd boot disk or something and transfer my Windows over to a new Drive?
