What is a recovery and repair disk

Windows 7 LogoMajor PC manufacturers no longer give customers a real Windows 7 installation DVD along with their purchase of a computer.

A Windows 7 installation DVD can be used to recover your PC, not just install a Windows 7 copy. The DVD has a “recovery center” that gives you options to Automated Recovery (attempts to fix automatically any errors found), System Restore (restores your computer to the last working state) or you can access a command-line for advanced recovery options.

Instead, customers are expected to create a recovery media themselves – on a CD, DVD or USB drive.

Your computer’s hard drive might have a recovery partition added by the manufacturer, but what happens when your PC or Windows isn’t working or you’ve lost the disks you had?

If you can’t boot into Windows or your PC isn’t working, only a bootable recovery and repair CD/DVD/USB can save you.

  16. Hi,
    since last week my netbook has been receiving an error everytime I try to turn it on
    “missing BootMGR Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart”
    I know that this is probably because I accidentally marked the wrong drive as my active partition.
    I was wondering if this CD would help me fix this error. I’m also concerned because my netbook does not have DVD/CD rom. Is there anyway that I can fix this error using a thumbdrive?
    Thank you for taking the time to read

  23. I have PC problem. Register is merged with a backup of the full register. Now PC is not working.
    I can select BIOS, reboot sequence, but the different boot menu’s of W7 don’t work. The system hangs. I can use a recovery disk, and remove the total register from the PC this way. However I want to import the backup register of Windows 7 back to the Windows 7 PC X64 that does not have a functional register any more. Does your recovery disk provide solution to Import the Backup Register into the PC Windows 7 x64 register, that is currently empty. I removed all items because of the incidentally merged register causing the problem.

    Tks for response.

  24. Thank you so much! My computer crashed and I use your windows 7 repair and now it is up running!
