<system administration>

To re-install a computer's operating system, and possibly other software, by writing a disk image to the hard disk, replacing the entire contents. Re-imaging is quicker, easier and more reliable than going through a complete install but it relies on having a disk image available.

"Sometimes if your PC has a virus, the only cure is to re-image it."
