How to create an image iso system without my personnel files?


New Member
i want to make an iso image file from my Vista system but only the operating system + drivers, i don't want any of my programs files and personnel files!

i tested a few softwares but the only choice i have is the complete "C" drive!

How i can do that?

i want a copy for trying my Vista in Virtualbox!

it would be much easier if my personnal files was on another partition but it's not the case here!

I'd take a complete image onto an external drive using something like Macrium Reflect (free edition), run a full recovery/reinstal of Vista, install any system/driver updates, create the iso then run Macrium Reflect to restore.
