I don't think this is the right place to ask this question but here goes:
How do you make a ghost image of your harddrive?
Ive seen people load windows and essential software such as office on a clean hard drive in a jiffy. They don't format the drive or have to spend time waiting for windows to install or formatting the hard drive. How is this done? I want to learn this art. Thank you

There's a host of free and retail software that does this for you. It's as easy as running the software and having another harddrive to put the image on.

Free drive backup software (imaging, cloning, and archiving - backups can be created on a second hard drive, internal or external, or on DVD's, or BluRay disks. One BluRay disk will hold most peoples' entire system drive's backup at 25 GB's using compressed images, 50 GB's double-layer):

Paragon Backup & Recovery (Recovery boot CD or USB key)
Macrium Reflect (Free)
O&O Disk Image Express or (mirror)
Easeus Todo Backup
Redo Backup & Recovery (Boot CD)
Clonezilla Live (A bootable CD of Debian with Clonezilla.)
Drive Image XML
PING (Partimage is not Ghost) (Boot CD with option Clam Antivirus)
Partition Saving
Clonezilla
Passmark OSFClone (Bootable, cloning only)

There are also many commercial products with more features.
