    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.
