Need to recover or repair Windows 7 and you don’t have a Windows 7 DVD
Many of you out there bought a new Computer or Laptop with the Windows 7 operating system pre installed.
And usually you do not get any DVD for Windows 7 with it as it is pre-installed on your new machine.
What to do, if you have some , not unusual system problems, and you didn’t made a recovery CD / DVD or your manufacturer didn’t give you a recovery CD / DVD when you bought the machine.
The CD/DVD is the only way to recover a broken installation.
The Windows 7 DVD has a complete “recovery center” that provides you with the option of recovering your system via automated recovery (searches for problems and attempts to fix them automatically), rolling-back to a system restore point, recovering a full PC backup, or accessing a command-line recovery console for advanced recovery purposes.
Thankfully, Microsoft seems to have realized this problem, and have thankfully made a recovery disc for this purpose. It contains the contents of the Windows 7 DVD’s “recovery center,” as we’ve come to refer to it.
It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows 7, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC.
Technically, one could re-create this installation media with freely-downloadable media from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK kit, a multi-gigabyte download); but it’s damn-decent of Microsoft to make this available to Windows’ users who might not be capable of creating such a thing on their own. You can make your own copy from Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, but now you have an easier alternative.
We hope this gives you the help you were searching for.
