Did you save your windows installation to wim files? (using tools like imagex)
If so you better do a simple "system image backup" instead

You might try Vlite which has the ability to span multiple DVD's but you are in uncharted territory trying to make a bootable Win7 installer at 12gb on DVD's.

Believe it or not, recovering using Image on external from booted DVD/Repair CD might be easier. It is easier than Repairs when I walk noobies through it on the phone.
