There's nothing worse than having to re-install your entire operating system and then realise that you have to reinstall all the drivers, codecs and programs too. It can take a valuable working day to do. One solution is to create your own personalised Windows CD which installs everything in one go.
This is basically what WinFuture XP-Iso-Builder, through 11 simple steps, does by creating a CD or DVD custom installation of Windows. You can integrate all the service packs you may have downloaded (a major time saver in itself), determine which user accounts are created and include drivers and programs, among other options. The program works by taking a snapshot of your system and creating an ISO image that we can be burnt on a CD or DVD.
This is an essential solution for anyone that has an highly customised Windows installation and doesn't want to wait if the worst happens.
