Yes windows came preinstalled. When i click on create disk I get the following message. Insert windows installation disc. The files needed to create a system repair disc were not found on this computer. You can still create a system repair disc if you have a windows installation disc.
Unfortunately this method will only let you create one using a DVD. However, you can create a Windows 7 installation USB key to use to do the same thing with instead from your Windows 7 ISO file.
Hope this helps,
My new notebook does not have a CD/DVD drive. Can I create a Windows 7 System Repair Disk directly to a USB key or external HDD without first burning an image to a cd/dvd and then copying that image to a USB key?
If so, can you advise how to do this or point me to a tutorial.
