Help me out here.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
m'k well i have partition magic figured out and i am about to partition the drive to put on windows 64 bit

i need to know how to make a bootable floppy to restore everything in case it f's itself

can you help me out here?

and is it even possible to put an image of your drive onto a couple of floppies? i think it just "photographs" your hard drive before the changes so if it messes up it just looks there and sees what the file layout was like before the chaos

hard to explain but yah i need to do this!

dude...nothin will fark up, dont worry about, 64bit is no good anyways, no programs that take advantage of it, so youre just wasting hard drive space.

i have 120 gigs, plenty of space to waste. and i feel like i'm using half of my cpu for some reason and i can't get over it.

i think its an acual mental condition where something has to be the way you want it.

ok for one thing, when u install partition magic, it will ask u to make a boot disk. if it did not then u can still make one from the program. next thing, u can instead of making the images on the floppy make them onto cds and boot the cd instead.

What I suggest, back up your documents to some form of media, and then re-install everything. Give 30GB for 32-bit windows and its programs, 30 for 64-bit, and use the final 60 for documents.
