Create A System Disc In Windows 10

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015 by | Filed Under: Windows 10

A system disc can be an important tool for your PC. Vicki is trying to figure out how to make one in Windows 10.  I installed Windows 10 and did not have any problems but I need to make the backup disc or the system disc and I can’t get it to work. When I ask what to do, it gives me the instructions for Windows 8 and I guess I am not computer savvy enough to figure it out. Can you help me? I love your site, read it everyday!

I want you to open  up the Control Panel and choose Back up and Restore under System and Security.  Don’t worry if it says Windows 7 or Windows 8 there. It’s just letting you know that you can restore backups from other operating systems.


To create an image of the whole system,  choose Create a System Image.


A window will open asking where you want to save the backup. A system image will contain your OS plus your programs and files. You’ll need a large external drive or multiple DVDs to do this backup.


Once you select your location, you can click next and follow the instructions of the wizard.

To create a repair disc, choose Create a system repair disc.


Once you choose Create a system repair disc, just put your DVD in the drive and choose Create disc.

    I know this applies to many Dell laptops with W7 and W8. I have three of them, and after hours of frustration called Dell Tech Support. I cannot boot to a bootable DVD, flash drive, or CD-ROM. Yes, I know how to create them. The ONLY way to configure boot sequence is inside Windows. One goes the the settings and changes boot sequence. It takes several steps and not simple.

    This completely negates the function of a bootable recovery disk. After many chats with Dell, they finally admitted one cannot boot to Setup and change boot sequence. Those days are gone. They blame it on Microsoft, and I never found a way for booting to an ext drive. It’s related to UEFI [or something like that] Would LOVE to see an article on that, because Dell is clueless.
