    I have created an image of my HD and I saved it on an external HD (firewired); after I have created 7 bootable diskettes; i would know: if my OS is corrupted can I restore the image from an external HD and so restart the OS?
    thank you

    I assume you created boot diskettes because you can’t burn a CD.
    Anyway, I would boot from the diskette and be sure that TI can recognize your external drive and find the backup image file. If so, then you should have no problem doing what you proposed.

    excuse me I forgot to tell you I had the version 8. I created the diskettes because floppy disk has the priority when I start windows (excuse for my bad english)
