You will encounter a problem attempting to backup a Windows system image to writeable discs (CDs or DVDs) using the Windows Backup utility.
Microsoft's support site states that the Windows 7 system image backup process does not support backing up to a writeable CD or DVD. Reference: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Where-should-I-save-my-backup
Microsoft recommends that you save your backup to an external hard drive.
