I recently bought a new netbook from Malasia. It doesn't have a brand name, or officially supporting drivers. It came with a version of windows, and working drivers for all the hardware - but I want to install Ubuntu on here.
Being a netbook, it has no CD/DVD drive.
I want some free easy to use software to image the entire drive onto a thumb drive, which I could later use to boot up a recovery program to reinstall windows, should I fail to get all the hardware supported on Linux.
I have already done some research and found driver backup/restore software in this thread, and will probably use that failing a more all-encompasing solution.
