Hi kintomaniac,

It will fit on a cd.

If you already have a dvd with 7 on it, or an iso - burn that to dvd.

Do not format the dvd - just use an iso burner to burn the image straight to dvd .The iso burner built into your 7 installation will do. It provides everything the recovery disc does and more.

The recovery disc will be useful in the future for those who buy a e.g. laptop with 7 preinstalled and have no dvd supplied.

Hope it helps

Hi,

You will be pleased to know it contains bootsect.exe, so you can use the commands which require that.

Bootsect.exe wasn't included in the Vista recovery download from Neosmart.
