Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
You' want to set aside some space where to create these backups, they are generally 25% of the total drive space.
the assumption is that there is no data on the drive to save. During the install it will ask where you want to install windows, if there are existing partitions delete them all. Then create one partition and specify it to be 75% of the drive (or whatever you prefer). Leave the rest unpartitioned.
Select the partition you created to install windows on.
Once you have installed windows and all the drivers etc, format the rest of the drive in Disk management (part of Computer management in Control Panel). Finally install your favourite software to create backup restore images, and set it to save on the partition you created.
NOTE: you will still need to back up on some external media, if the drive fails all data will be lost.
Hope this helps
