Did you know that Windows 7 has a utility that allows you to create a system repair disk? If you’ve ever turned on your computer and found you can’t get into Windows, this is a great thing to have, because it contains a suite of recovery tools that will help you recover from a serious system error or restore your computer from a system image.
Here’s how you do it:
Click Start, then in the Search Box, type Create a System Repair Disk. An icon should appear in the list above. Click on it.
A wizard will open up. Put a blank CD/DVD in your CD/DVD Writer and follow the on-screen instructions.
That’s all there is to it! If you ever find your computer in an un-bootable state, just pop this baby in and you’ll be on your way back to good!
Note: You may need to go into your system’s BIOS to change the boot order of your devices so your CD-RW or DVD-RW is the first boot device.
