    I still missed one of the main points here,
    Deleting all partitions on this disk and redoing the partitioning is certainly the way to go once you have your backups.

    i have a 1 Terabyte external hdd, its nearly full but i can make some space. (or does it have to be empty?)

    it is save to give the unallocated space from D: to C: ?

    how exactly can i copy partitions to my external hdd ?

    when i have the backup and format the complete hdd,
    how can i install windows 7 ?

    thx for all the help

    Ensure you have accurate copies of /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2 the method used to initiate an install I am unaware of.Check with the vendor.

    There are many ways, You could look at the linux program dd, use the "man dd" command to find out more.

    I have not seen what
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    shows us now, I expect it to be different to last time, so I can't answer.

    we don't know how much space you have available.

    To the extent that it's possible 'Parted Magic'
    Using Parted Magic an Introduction - openSUSE Forums
    Will let you mount usable partitions in a UI
    You can use 'dd' from a terminal otherwise

    Allot of PC manufacturers who don't supply instal DVDs give you a way to create one from the restore image on the hard disk, check there web site, and documents that came with the PC.

    Ooooooh, take a good look at the beginnings and ends of the partitions in the pic, no good. Correct me if i'm wrong.
