    Give me the exact procedure of how to do this. I need to know how I can make an image an perform my tinkering. I have been looking all around to make a recovery image of Windows. Please site some references via which I can do this. Please.

    That's easy - this tutorial applies to 7 and 8.1.

    Can't I use Windows System Image Backup ?? I am kinda apprehensive about using third party tools to make backups, because if anything goes wrong then not even God can help me. Plus does the software that you have specified above work for GPT disks, because that's what I am using.

    Windows imaging is no good. It has failed many times in the past (e.g. for recovery). I would really stay away from it. I had to write a special tutorial for recovery of a broken Windows system image It helped many members.

    Macrium is a very safe and efficient program that many people of this forum use. I have never heard of any complaints.

    Sorry for the long delay.

    Please have a look at the screenshot below-:

    This is the layout of the partitions of my first hard disk which contains the Windows installation(The software used was Paragon Partition Manager). Now does Macurin do a sector by sector copy of the data ? When I back up from Macurin will the partitions BE EXACTLY THE SAME not just data wise but will their GUIDs be the same ?

    Also please note that my system has an EFI System Partition and a Microsoft Reserved Partition. Can Macurin back up and restore that also ?

    Does Macurin support GPT disks ?
