Is the disc this utility creates any different than just using your installation disc?
Yes, this does the exact same thing as if you clicked on the "Repair Computer" option from the Windows 7 installation disc for the "System Recovery Options".
This is to have a backup in case something somthing should happen to your installation disc, you can't find the installation disc for now, or if you have a OEM Windows 7 installation disc that only does a factory restore without this option.
