BootItNG or Acronis (Drive Manager) will both do what you want to do. You are imaging with these utilities and do not have to reinstall. (BootItNG has a trial -- get to either by Googling.)

1. install acronis true image home 2010.
2. If you could mount the drives at the same time (ie: desktop pc, external HD) you can use the clone disk utility under the tab tools and utilities or you can use the backup under the home tab (select sector by sector if you want to backup everything even deleted and hidden files(ie: DCV partition)

If you need a more step by step process (with images) just reply to this tread and if my schedule permits, ill try to provide one. :)
