Remind me - what program are we talking about. And what is WIC ??
Sorry Wolfgang perhaps it is just me but I could quite catch what you said about that WAIK it sounded like wick. I Googled WIC and got this Download Windows Imaging Component from Official Microsoft Download Centre That would not install so hence why I asked the question again I am really sorry if what I have said causes any offence I just could make out the word

The rest of the tutorial I have no problems with in fact it all falls into place. It was the recovery disk part that had me flummoxed.
No problem. If I said 'WIC' it must have been a typo. The problem with the WAIK is that it takes at least 2 hour to download (1.7GBs). That's why I posted the ready made .iso on my Skydrive so that people could shorten the process.

John you only need WAIK id you are going to create a rescue disk (WinPE) yourself. If you download the iso as Wolfgang suggests you do not need it. https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=475a0...A6D4035%211812

Wolfgang I have selected the rescue for the Windows ISO and gone through the instructions and insert a disk (DVD) and it goes for two seconds and then ejects it with this message. If I am doing something wrong can you please advise. I have tried 6 different empty disks soi don't think it is the media.

PS Meant to mention the image went fine

Are you using the correct opto drive John? What are the settings under the error message?

Is the disc blank/formatted? Try the USB option too.

All I can think of is one of the drive's cables is loose, maybe?

If you are using the preprepared ISO supplied by Wolfgang you just need to burn it to DVD with something like Imgburn.The Official ImgBurn Website
