nice idea...wont work. it is an hp computer im trying to get this from. They dont use a cd, the but the backup image on a hidden partition. now getting to that abckup partition is not a problem, but there is two issues with that....first, the image uses some special program to extract it and the second problem is that even if i could extract it...it will not install on any pc other than that hp...it can sense the computers hardware.
anyways...im at a loss, any other ideas?
