Windows 7: Total Windows 7 repair DVD?

Total Windows 7 repair DVD?

Is there a multifunctional Windows 7 32 bits repair DVD?
I encounter different versions of Windows 7 yet I cannot make repair DVD for every one of them. Is there something like ERD Commander from Microsoft/Sysinternals being able to repair/recover damaged files from Windows 7 system? I mean being able to automatically identify the start-up problem when it is a tough one. And being able to disable startup items such as programs and services/drivers. The ERD Commander has such an option for all kind of Windows XP versions .

One repair DVD should suffice for all of them - they are generic anyhow.

A lot of repair and recovery options are available from the advanced boot menu itself- sfc scan, startup repair, command line access etc. In case the system cant boot at all, the win7 install dvd lets you run these options when you boot off the dvd- Carl has already linked the repair install tut.

If you dont have a win7 disk or dont want to use one, download the win7 repair disk (about 140 mb download) from the Neosmart site, thats a win PE that lets you use System Restore, Complete PC Backup, automated system repair, and a command-line prompt.

If you are looking for something in the way of diagnostics, you could try Ultimate Boot CD.

For data recovery in desperate situations use a live linux distro cd/dvd such as knoppix or Ubuntu.

When you said ERD commander, i immediately thought of MSdart (MS diagnostics and recovery toolset). Unfortunately, its not free, worse its bundled with the MSDOP which is available only to VL customers or technet/MSDN customers.
