Backup reports error in creating System Repair Disc

Hello,
In the process of doing a complete reinstall of W7 Ultimate. Did backup as alerted, but get an error message when I try to do a System Repair Disc. I get the Create System Repair Disc Prompt showing the DVD drive but receive the error message "The Parameter is Incorrect (0x80070057)" when I hit the create disc button. Thanks for any assistance

Do you have TrueCrypt installed?


Post number 4 of this thread seems to have helped quite a few,
