When Windows 7 Will Not Boot

Did you know that Windows 7 contains an utility to create a “System Repair Disc”? I highly recommend that you take the time to create this disc, in the chance your Windows 7  becomes broken or will not boot.


The  System Repair Disc is an option designed to help users “fix or repair” Windows 7 without resorting to a complete re-install or resorting to your system recovery software. The System Repair Disc is a bootable disc, that provides accessible options for using System Restore, Complete PC Backup, Automated System Repair, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and a Command-line Prompt for manual advanced recovery.

The easiest method to initate the process to create the “System Repair Disc”, is to click on “Start“, go to the “Run” dialog, type: recdisc, and hit “Enter“.  The following dialog box will appear prompting you for a  blank CD or DVD disc.  Once the CD or DVD has been created, label the disc, and store it in a safe place. This simple process may save you a whole lot of headaches later.

Windows 7 Recovery Options

If for some reason you are unable to create the “System Repair Disc” from your Windows 7 PC, you can download and create a bootable copy of the System Repair Disc at NeoSmart.

  1. Hi,

    I just bought a portable computer with windows 7, but it doesn’t have a cd/dvd reader. How do I create this System Repair Disc?

    Thank you


  2. Since I haven’t used W7 yet, all I can say is that the
    post and image you used is great and reminded me of my wrath against Microsoft 🙂
    More power to WOMP Rick!


  3. Sad but I can’t do this on an Acer Aspire netbook because it has no CD driver. I wonder if all netbook brands are this way. Can I do this with a USB drive instead?
