I know windows 7 has a recovery option that supposed to allow you to restore from an image you created earlier but now sure if this puts on a fresh copy of windows like factory reset ect. with out having to reactive everytime
I am basically looking to store a image of my windows 7 after it has been activated on my hard drive in a spare partition and then later recover it if needed to reset my pc back to like it was after a fresh install.
But what i want to know is
A - will i have to reactivate every time i have done factory reset/restore to fresh install
B - Be able to restore from a separate partition that can be made hidden like the pre built factory versions
The pc is custom made and basically got a version of Pro that can only be activated once
