Windows 7: Error - Windows cannot restart into recovery environment

27 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 64 bit


i have the same issue. But unfortunately i don't have the install win 7 disc so that's not an option. I created a system repair disc but it won't boot on it. And when i try to restore the system image (which i made on an external drive) through the regular system restore, it won't work because of this "windows cannot restart the computer into the Windows Recovery Environment.

So i'm seriously out of options here...any idea what i can do at this point?

any help MUCH appreciated...i've been struggling with this for weeks now.

Try downloading and burning an iso of the install image (perfectly legal according to the article since you need your key to use it). Then boot into the install and choose repair, then restore a system image.
