I wanted to prepare for restoring a corrupted Windows environment without touching any of the user data on the same drive. This would need to include all of the installed programs, registry, the desktop, preferences etc. I restored from my C: drive image backup. I did a specified files/folders restore specifying Documents and Settings, Program Files and Windows. Now Windows XP SP3 will only boot into safe mode. What is the proper way to backup/restore everything needed by Windows XP without affecting the rest of the drive?
