first you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall windows, only after that you will be able to restore the file system

PQI is an image, like using Norton Ghost files, but for Drive Image software, no need to install anything first.

You will need to look at the Drive Image manual and find out how to make a bootable CD, or a USB drive to use. There are programs that can make a boot CD out of your floppy, but you need to play around a bit with the software on them to make them work.
