See the last post in this thread on 2nd page, see if it helps you: Cannot create recovery disc: getting The parameter is incorrect - Microsoft Answers

Did you per chance delete the built in recovery partition? That seems to cause this problem.

Much obliged, Senor Ztruker, this was successful.

Booting from Windows installation disk and running recdisc from the c prompt gets it done.
