Windows 7: create 32-bit system repair disk

Another thing that comes into play is Service Pack 1

A service pack 1 install disc may not work on a machine that was originally sold or installed with a non service pack 1 Operating System.

Don`t ask me why, but it`s happened.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit
 
 

The computer was purchased in 2010. Is there any way I can verify whether or not the factory install included SP1?

SP1 came out on Febr. 6, 2011. So a 2010 PC would not have it originally. But it could have been updated later to SP1.

And AddRam is right. An SP1 disc will not work on a pre-SP1 system for startup/repair.
