Intallation Backup for cloning an instlation process?

I have just just purchased some new PC with different configration AMD Phenom II X4 965, Gigabyte 890GLX Motherboard, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and 2nd AMD Athalon 635 with Gigbyte 875 Mothboard -4 GB RAM, 500GB HDD.I want to use these machines for Gaming as well as for teaching and for Internet browsing and web site development

What i Did i had Installed Multiple OS Windows XP SP3 32Bit,
Windows XP SP2 64 Bit, Windows 2003 server 32 and 64 bit, Windows Vista 32 & 64 Bit, Windows 2008 server 32 and 64 bit , Windows 7 32 and 64 bit.

Now i want to install general softwares like Office, Adobe Master collection cs5 , Autocad, Coral , Visual studio Java, C, SQl Server, Oracle and the list caries on

I want that i dont have to install these software again and again on every software so that the space is not occupied and i can use same program files folder for each and every OS and time is also saved from installing the software.

For that i have seen some installation copiers (backups) which remain in memory before installation and records the information of registry and system files being copied and records and the can again be copied to the different OS.

Is there any ways to do these which installation copier backup is good for doing this .

Can any one help me finding such softwares which can copy or backup installation files registries and i can just use the same installers.

Thank you in advance

I am waiting for the same reply with web link and complete information and help for doing such things

The answer by Bob Proffitt in
was "No".

I doubt if any answer here will be more positive. So I'm afraid you've got to spend some time to install all those programs on all those OS'es. The big advantage: any automatic or manual updates will have to be done in all OS'es also, so there can't arise any complications caused by an unexpected situation due to the cloning. Even if you could find an 'install cloner' there wouldn't be an 'update cloner', I think.

in another post you write you downloaded a "Multi Windows Installation dvd" from a torrent. That immediately means the end of this discussion. We don't support non-genuine versions of Windows in any way.
