I bought an HP laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium preinstalled. It has a label with Windows serial number. However a Windows Installation DVD was not provided. I want to repartition the HDD to install Ubuntu and create a data partition. But I want to be sure that I will be able to restore Windows even if I reformat hdd or replace it by another one.
Is it enough to burn the system image on a bunch of DVD+Rdl and System repair disc using Windows 7 standard tools and save them in a safe place?
By standard tools I mean:
- "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Backup and Restore -> Create a system image" and
- "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Backup and Restore -> Create a system repair disc"
Is there any other way to achieve this?
