Our recovery discs provide an excellent way to recover a non-booting system if you don’t happen to have Windows boot media, but what if you’re one of those unfortunate cases that don’t have access to another private computer to obtain and use to burn the recovery discs you may need? In this tutorial I’ll go over the process of obtaining our recovery discs and burning them to disc in an environment where you may not have the administrative rights to install applications such as uTorrent, ImgBurn, or 7-zip needed to download and create the recovery disc. 1. You well need the following: a. ImgBurn (http://imgburn.com) (Older Portable version here) b. 7-zip Portable (http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/7-zip_portable) c. uTorrent Portable (http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/utorrent_portable) d. The correct torrent file for your operating system. See here and here to download. e. A blank CD-R. No CD-RWs! 2. Next, extract 7-zip and uTorrent by starting their installers. The portable app installers shouldn’t require administrative rights on the computer. 3. Now to make ImgBurn portable: a. Start up 7-zip and browse to where ImgBurn’s installer is. Single click it so it is selected before hitting the “Extract” button in 7-zip’s toolbar. Follow on screen instructions to extract ImgBurn’s files to where you would like to store them. b. In ImgBurn’s directory, create a new file called “ImgBurn.ini”. You don’t need to add anything to it. Make sure there is no .txt extension at the end of it. You can do this using Notepad or by right-clicking and using Explorer’s new text document and rename file features. 4. At this point you are ready to download the correct ISO for your operating system. Start up uTorrent and go to File -> Add Torrent. You than navigate to the *.torrent file you downloaded from our website earlier and have uTorrent download it. 5. The final step in creating the recovery disc is actually burning it to disc. ImgBurn well take the *.ISO file you have downloaded and do this for you with the “Write image file to disc” mode. For screenshots and detailed click by click instructions see our article on ImgBurn here. For instructions for using our recovery discs see here. Please also remember that our recovery discs contain absolutely NO installation files what so ever. The only functional part of the disc is the “Repair my computer” link that takes you into the Windows environment needed to recover a non-booting Windows system.
