How to Create a System Repair Disc in Windows 7

With Windows 7, you can use a system repair disc to boot your computer when all else fails. It is one of several recovery tools you may need in order to restore your computer. A system repair disc can be used if there is any hope at all of saving your files.

Your PC manufacturer most likely included its branded version of a system recovery disc with your computer, and you can also use your Windows 7 DVD to boot your computer. Having a system repair disc provides additional insurance in case you encounter problems with other recovery tools.
