Are these the same as the repair discs created in control panel?

My guess is yes, it is the same. Not really needed if you already have a Windows 7 DVD because all of the same tools are already there.

I created one too, months ago, but I quickly found out that all I did was waste a disc.

These recovery discs are for people that don't have a Windows 7 installation DVD.

That's exactly what they are SUP3.

Mahmoud has made them available for those who don't have the dvd to hand , or haven't run off the recovery disc before disaster strikes.

There will be plenty of those in the weeks/ months to come.

NST also hosts the Vista recovery disc download -there has been an enormous demand for those - saved a lot of people's bacon since he uploaded them.


If you have experimented with the 7 recovery options - while they appear to offer the same options as the Vista ones - there is much more automation.

Terrific for those who can't use the command line.

They also repair Vista perfectly - and are easier to use.

NOTE: These discs contain the system recovery options only - they are for repairing your Vista/7 installations - they do not contain the installation files.

Yes I agree that it is very helpful of him to make these available for people. And good of you to post it, thanks.

Well, last I knew, with the RTM of Windows 7 Ultimate, the repair utility can be accessed at Startup by tapping F8 repeatedly (same method to get to Safe-Mode).

Things are much easier when you don't need the disc(s).

but F8 is not going to help you if the system can't even load the boot manager.
