Thanks. Very much appreciated. Sorry for the misconception, just want to copy my hidden image partition to a media and make a complete restore of my system. There is something wrong with my current OS - the OEM advance boot doesn't work i.e. press F8 ; "Repair your computer" and nothing happen just start normally. – user173514 Jul 11 '13 at 9:10
