You need a utility that will do a drive image. There are many that cost and there are free ones.
Here is a link to DriveImage with instructions on how to use it. I beleive this one is free.

It depends on your operating system.

Most versions of windows have a nackup facility that can APPEND new files to an existing backup.

You may have to install it from your CD if you are talking windows.

his is done by using ADD REMOVE programs and then selecting WINDOWS COMPONENTS

You will find it listed in one of the sections there and when you add it it will ask for your windows CD.

  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot
