    Asking me about the different partitions on the hard drive; should I just back up the one partition?

    The first time you create an image, create it for the entire drive including all partitions. That way, it will be bootable when restored. An image of the entire drive captures the MBR info which makes it bootable. Just backing up one partitioin and then restoring it may result in an unbootable drive.
