Did you know that Windows 7 contains an utility to create a “System Repair Disc”? I highly recommend that you take the time to create this disc, in the chance your Windows 7 becomes broken or will not boot.
The System Repair Disc is an option designed to help users “fix or repair” Windows 7 without resorting to a complete re-install or resorting to your system recovery software. The System Repair Disc is a bootable disc, that provides accessible options for using System Restore, Complete PC Backup, Automated System Repair, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and a Command-line Prompt for manual advanced recovery.
The easiest method to initate the process to create the “System Repair Disc”, is to click on “Start“, go to the “Run” dialog, type: recdisc, and hit “Enter“. The following dialog box will appear prompting you for a blank CD or DVD disc. Once the CD or DVD has been created, label the disc, and store it in a safe place. This simple process may save you a whole lot of headaches later.
If for some reason you are unable to create the “System Repair Disc” from your Windows 7 PC, you can download and create a bootable copy of the System Repair Disc at NeoSmart.
