Hello,

I am using Toshiba Portege 3500 Tablet PC Laptop. This Version of Notebook does not contain any CD-ROM at all . So i get extremely into trouble when my windows corrupts.
I want to ask you that can i re-install XP using Image of C Drivre i.e; i take image of c drive and save it to a backup device. When my windows corrupts or fail to start my operating system, so i remove my Hard Disk and attach it with a working PC and restore the Image of C Drive (Which i backup up) to the C Drive of my Laptop Hard Drive and attach it back to my Laptop and have my Windows running again.
Is it Possible ??????

Well, if you can still get into Windows it is possible to reinstall from your hard disk, but you need to store it on a different hard disk because Windows is going to wipe C:/ clean. You can try buying a 1GB flash drive and just putting windows on that, that way you can always have it in case anything happens. What model is your computer?

Sorry, I'm not familiar with Toshiba laptops, Do you know if it supports USB booting? If so you can download WinToFlash (http://wintoflash.com/home/en/ and install it on a 1GB or more USB drive.
