Installing windows from image


OSNN Senior Addict

i would like to know if foratting my hard drive and installing windows is as good and stable as formatting and installing from acronis image that has windows installed already, but no other programs.

thankyou :)
Yes, as long as you're restoring the Acronis image on the same machine that the backup was made on, of course.

I prefer using images actually. Restoring an image is faster than reinstalling Windows, and you don't have to re-activate your copy if it was already activated before you made the backup. :)

Create regular backups using Acronis is good. When you restore, you start from where you last saved.... a bit like saving your progress when playing games really. :)
