    I have a hidden partion with the img of windows XP Home on it, and all the system and driver files for my PC, the manufacturer also gave me a reload cd and i belive it just extracts the img from the hdd...

    Now if i wanted to burn this Img to a CD ... how could I extract it?

    I really need to do this for piece of mind because I dont want to destroy this ...

    any input appreciated

    I have no idea. For your piece of mind have you put the Restore CD in the drive and browsed it? What does it contain?

    I am not sure what else to suggest. Which Computer Manufacturer is this?

    If you want to backup the physical image, maybe something like GHOST will backup the whole partition, I don't have anything like to to try it on. :)
