Cannot Create A System Restore Disc(s) (Cannot Do A System Recovery)
Mar 21, 2011
I want to have a Factory Reset of my computer. In order to launch a System Recovery, I need to create Restore Discs. When I launch the Recovery Disc Creation, it says:"This computer does not have a burning drive, which is required to make DVDs. Please contact HP Support for asistance."My computer did not come with a build in CD Drive. Even plugging in a USB CD Drive will not make creating the discs possible. So. I ask you. How can I reset my computer to Factory Condition?
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit)
Model: HP Pavillion dm3 Notebook PC
edit: This notebook came with a Recovery Partition built in.
My Windows 7 32 bit laptop has crashed. I do not have a instalation disc and like a dumb fool I never made a recovery disc. Can I make a recovery disc on a 64 bit Windows 7 that a relative of mine has. Can I just download it from a link and burn it onto a blankd dvd?
I am unable to create a system repair / recovery disc by either running recDisc.exe or using the option to create a recovery disk in Backup and Retore. It says System Repair Disc could not be created. "The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057)". I have tried using both a blank CDr and a DVDr. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I am wondering if this is caused by how I setup my dual boot system.
I installed Win 7 to a clean HD first. I noted that it set up a 100 Mb recovery partition. I then realized there was no good way to convert this to a dual boot, so wiped the partitions and set up four news ones: one for XP, one for Windows 7, one for data, and a 133 Mb one in hopes that the installation process would find and use it for the recovery partition. I installed XP first, and then Windows 7 and directed that installation to the partition I had previously setup for it.
System Restore will not create a restore point or restore to a previous date & time.The error message was: A restore point could not be created: An error was detected in the Volume Shadow Copy Server (VSS).The problem occurred while trying to contact VSS writers. Verify that the Event System Sevice and the VSS service are running & check for associated errors in the event logs (0x80042318).Volume Shadow Copy is started & running (done in system events).Event System Sevice and the VSS service are started and running. But no cigar, SR still broken.
Known good cd drive & dvd drive installed in my pc.Tried discs separately in each drive three ways.Have tried Search box typing recdisc.exe.Have tried going through Control Panel to reach the part to create repair disc.Have tried using an elevated prompt & then typing recdisc."System repair disc could not be created. The parameter is incorrect. (0x80070057)."
i have a Sony Vaio laptop with windows 7 home premium 32bits and i wanted to create a system repair disc with the windows 7 tools but this laptop has no CDDVD drive so obviously the tool gives an error asking for one to be pluged in...o the question is, is there any other way to create a system repair disc or do i need to get an external cddvd drive?EDIT: forgot to say, the point is so i can create an image of the system repair disc so i can put it on an USB drive
Just picked up my first Win7 computer, and it came with no discs. No surprise there, but I'd like to make some recovery discs, but not the kind that Windows says you can make. I don't want access to tools for recovery, I want access to a physical install of the OS and the drivers.
Like the discs enterprise people get when they buy their machines. I must be googling wrong, because all I'm finding are results that teach me how to create a recovery tools disc, which isn't quite what I'm looking for.
My old computer I know had a partition with some bootable software where you could boot into it and it would then copy Windows back from a restore if you had a problem It was called like PCAngel or something I can't remember the exact name and can't find it But I'm looking for a bootable sort of software that I can store on the last partition of my HDD on my laptop and have an additional partition for storing system images. Like on the backup and restore thing on W7 you can make a"system repair disc", is there a way to make a restore disc but instead store it on a bootable partition? Basically I want to just store a system image on a seperate partition and leave it alone then some way on the computer to also be able to overwrite my old windows OS with this new clean system image whenever I want, without external discs or anything. I want it to work even if my disk drive and USB ports stop working, that's the important part
I am in the process of restoring everything to our laptop after doing a Recovery. How to make this process simpler? Right now Windows Update is installing 103 updates. I have downloaded virus protection. Any other "must have" or "must do" things I should be aware of?
can we write a windows 7 system restore point in a dvd or cd coz some virus delete the system restore point in windows 7 therefor using this cd /dvd can we restore the system can't we but c drive System Protection is on?
I am performing an image recovery. I have 4 DVDs that came with my laptop from geeksquad. They say HP System Backup. Everything runs smoothly in disc 1. When I get to disc 2 nothing happens at all. I do have an external hard drive. I was considering trying to copy the System back up discs from a different computer onto the external and then trying to do the system restore.
I was trying to completely restore my system using factory discs. I upgraded my ProBook 4525s from 32 to 64 bit. because of all the problems I've been having, I tried putting on the 32 bit version again... well somehow I'm miss a whole lot of stuff. I'm not super computer savy, but figured that i've bdone it in the past, I can do it again. Well the first thing I noticed is that my wireless isn't working. So I go to HP website and try and download some different drivers. Nothing is working and when I try to open and install anything downloaded it doesn't work properly. Went to update my bios and it needs F.0A which I can't download because I don't have a burning software that is compatible. Why I need to burn something to disc when I want to download it directly I don't understand..
I currently can't make a system image or restore point. The error I receive for the system image attempt is: The backup failed. Windows Backup timed-out before the shared protection point was created. (0x80780021)
Does anyone know how to schedule/automate a rollback to a system restore point at a set time each day?What i'm trying to do is:1. Disable the standard system restore behavior for creating restore points when installing apps and drivers.2. Automatically/schedule a restore point to be created every morning. (probably using Task Scheduler)3. Automatically/schedule a rollback to that morning restore point every night.This should allow users to mess up the workstation during the day, and restore a working rollback point at night when users are not using a workstation.Updates are scheduled at nighttime, so before that happens, it should rollback to a good restore point, apply updates, then create a working "new" restore point with the updates in the morning....etc.
My sister gave me her laptop to do some repairs. I have been working on this thing for more hours than I wish to admit (mostly scans running like the Ad-Ware scan that is now on hour 7). Between her, and her 2 kids using it its has too much going on that need to be removed.The Laptop has a Vista sticker on it but was upgrade and is running 7 Home Premium. She purchased it from her neighbor who she no longer associates with. So the odds of her getting the 7 Home Premium DVD from her are slim to none.I have went through and cleaned up most of the crap and am working on getting it to run a smooth as new (or better once de-crapped). can I create a restore disc once I get it to the point I am now that will be just as good as any restore disc?
Microsoft Windows Repair Disc refuses to work. What should I do to allow creation of a System Repair Disc?I created (I think successfully, as the Finish window seemed normal) a System Image on a USB hard drive. The image was created overnight.After the image was created, while still inside Backup and Restore, I received the sub-window, asking if I wanted to Create a System Repair Disc. I inserted a new DVD, and clicked to start the process.The "Create a System Repair Disc" subwindow opened, to allow the drive selection.Immediately thereafter, (with the drive selection window text greyed out) before the I could even see the drive selection drop-down arrow, a failure window opened on top of it:Microsoft Windows Repair Disc has stopped working?If the debug option was chosen, the same window appeared, but without the Debug option, leaving only the Close the program option.I rebooted, and via Backup and Restore, again tried to Create a System Repair Disc. This failed the same way. I rebooted, and used another freshly unpacked DVD. The same failure occurred.Following forum post suggestions, I have subsequently successfully burned and verified a DVD on the DVD drive.I use Windows 7 Professional on an Asus U50-F.Yesterday -- maybe a coincidence -- before this failure I also installed (successfully) all of the most recent Windows Updates.
