System Image Recovery From OEM Partition

Gigabyte Xpress Recovery2

Gigabyte Xpress Recovery2 supported motherboard provide system image recovery from OEM Partition for desktop computer with just pressing F9 while booting, when your computer face any problem. Xpress Recovery2 back up data on hard disks on SATA and PATA IDE controllers.

System Requirements:
  • Intel x86 platforms.
  • At least 64M bytes of system memory.
  • VESA-supported VGA cards.


1. Everything from your hard disk will be deleted. So backup your important file and data before proceeding.
2. Xpress Recovery2 will backup system image file at the end of the hard disk, so you must have enough (At least 4 GB recommended. But in actual you must have free unallocated space depending on the size of the data to be backed up) unallocated hard drive partition space in advance.
3. If you have not enough hard disk unallocated space then delete and make free unallocated space for data backup. As Xpress Recovery2 will backup image at the end of the Hard Disk so the last partition must be unallocated and must have enough space(As shown in the picture below) otherwise you will be given an error message like "Not enough Hard Disk space".

4. As you can see in the above picture, I've deleted all the partition. And made only one Partition to install Windows (System Reserve partition has been created automatically) and left the remaining partition unallocated. After the completion of data backup you can create other partition with remaining unallocated partition.
5. To install Xpress Recovery2  with clean Windows installation, boot from your Windows Installation disc. Go to window installation page. Delete all hard drive partitions. Just create one partition(Drive C:) and install window in the very partition and left the remaining partition unallocated for data backup(as I've already mentioned in Step 3)


1. Go to BIOS setting and make you CD/DVD ROM as your first device.Save setting and exit.
2. Insert your motherboard driver CD and restart your computer. After restart a message will be displayed.. "Boot from CD/DVD:"... "Press any key to boot from CD..." Press any key to enter Xpress Recovery2 setup
3. Xpress Recovery2 takes a few second to load.

6. Data backup will start. And it may takes a long time depending upon the size of your data to be backed up.

7. After completion restart. Data backup with Xpress Recovery2 has been done.

Additional Info:

1. The driver CD is just required for the first time only to install Xpress Recovery2. Thereafter user can access Xpress Recovery2 just by pressing F9 while booting.
2. Install Xpress Recovery2 immediately after installing OS, all required drivers and softwares.
3. Data restoration will replace everything of Drive C: with the backed up System Image.

Some Errors:

1. 'Not enough Hard Drive space'- That means you've not sufficient space to backup in the last unallocated drive in your hard disk.

2. 'All primary partition is in use' or 'IDE Drive not detected'- That means you've no unallocated space at the end of your hard disk.

I have a question if you don't mind.
Now I have backup my system with Gigabyte Xpress Recovery2 but when I need to restore my C: drive I was worry that the Gigabyte Xpress Recovery2 may format my whole physical drive C: and D: the interface didn't show which partition will be recovered and the warring is very scary.

my question is: does Gigabyte Xpress Recovery2 restore the system partition only (c: drive only in my case?) or it will re-partition my whole drive and maybe I will lost my all data on drive D:?

Delhi with its extreme weather conditions, clamorous streets and a humdrum life can get to your nerves at times. And the best cure at

such moments is to just pack your bags, drag a couple of travel companions, or not and head out straight on the road.

Don’t worry, it won’t be a long drive! The best part about Delhi is that right at the outskirts of the city are amazing resorts that

offer an all-inclusive getaway.

The fact that the resort is located at such a close proximity from Delhi plays the biggest role in making it one of the best resorts

near Delhi for picnic. The resort has a village like set up with thatched roofs and clay walls, however, all necessary amenities are

kept intact.

Best Features:

You can enjoy the meals in quintessential rural custom with floor seating and the food presented is typical Rajasthani cuisine.
There are numerous activities that you can take part in while at Surjivan Resort like Village Safari on Tractor, Gun shooting,

Rappelling, Zip lining etc.
There are also few cultural programmes that takes place
