Windows 7 is undoubtedly the most stable and crash recoverable operating system that Microsoft has ever released, however catastrophic problems can still sometimes occur, and it’s best to be prepared for such eventualities.
With the majority of Windows 7 systems now coming pre-installed, it’s very common for people not to have a DVD with their operating system on, which in turn means they don’t have the necessary tools for recovering a troublesome system.
Windows 7 includes a utility that allows the user to create a system repair disk that can be used to boot your computer. It also contains Windows system recovery tools that can help you recover Windows from a serious error or restore your computer from a system image if one exists.
To create the disk, click the Windows ‘Start’ Orb, then select ‘All Programs‘ and from the ‘Maintenance‘ menu select the option ‘Create a system repair disc‘
Follow the on-screen prompts, and you will be able to build your own recovery disk that could be used to get you out of trouble should the worst happen.
