You can make recovery discs through RnR [assuming you are using factory preload]:-


Else, it can also be done through software like Acronis, Norton Ghost image etc.

Re: backup my factory state

If you don't already own a disk imager like Acronis or Ghost, download a copyof Hirren Boot CD since it includes fully funcionatl trial copies and make a compressed image and verify it before burning it off to two copies and preferably one a DVD to stored offline and away from housepets.

Don't just sit there, take a second and use the Kudo's button to compliment the people who help you.
