1. I've tried creating both methods:
create a test image and compressed ISO.
Closed all background applications that were running.
A compressed ISO was saved on another hard drive partition and apparently was successful. I only attempted to backup main hard drive partition.
Always the same result. Hangs at 20-30% and locks up machine.
2. Reinstalled software numerous times - update software -
Nero Burning version 126.96.36.199.
Also tried other applications and got the same result.
3. Yes, data and CD to CD copies work fine.
4. CD's are 48X 700MB 80 minute Memorex
I even tried setting CD storage limit for 600MB and 40X

Since another ISO was successful, it leads me to believe that there is something wrong with the ISO you created for the main partition backup. What exactly is compressed in the main partition backup ISO and how does its contents differ from the successful ISO on the other partition?
