Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Error message, insufficient space on disk for temp files.

Error message,, insufficient space on disk for temp files.... SOLUTION!

While attempting to do a factory restore using manufacturer disks, Windows 7 System and restore and language.

I could run the System disk but when it told me to insert the first recovery disk I got the error.

What I discovered was, while using a bootable USB. There were two partitions on the Hard drive. One was 100 mb and the other was 283.8 GB. Apparently it was trying to use the small partition. So I had to delete the partitions and make one big partition.

Make yourself a bootable USB or dvd or cd, place a hard drive utility on it that will allow you to modify the hard drive. As in add or delete partitions, format hard drive, etc.
