How browse/Verify Restore Point [DVD] ?

Hi folks.

My laptop´ uses to crash (3th time now over the last years)
So I recevied a new replacement-HDD by warranty.
Thereafter, I installed the Windows 7 with my dvd.

So in this very moment, I have a complete new fresh installation...

lets call it current_state2016

But for about ~1 year ago I did this very same process.
I Installed windows7 with the same clean ISO [DVD]
and then did a great work installing all the drivers,necessary extras for my hardware,peripherals.
Setting up my enviroment, installing some programs and tweaks.

And when finish, I did burn recovery disc you know before using it. I probably even created restoration images with the computer manufactors aswell.

I believe one DVD is a so-called Windows Restore point.
This restore-point should contain my system,settings, enviroment as the

1. But How do I know this for sure?
How can i Browse this DVD before proceed?
And how verify its 100 % OK ?

2. And what is the correct procedure in this moment ?
Is it really a good idea at all?

Should I insert the DVD
boot >
and try to restore 2015_state
on my new current_state2016 (overwrite)

or could it be problems, conflict? The difference between my current installation and the old one is the username and password (!)

I have a better idea. Weekly or bi-monthly, make at least one if not two full images of your OS and data partitions onto at least one if not two usb external platter-clatter hard-drives. Then, you can experiment, and be able to restore the now well-working windows OS :)

or buy a Mac with timemachine

"What-If" and "next time, Do this" doesnt really help me right now, does it?

1. I do believe my 2015_state is a typical DVD/restore image made in windows

Thats why I reach out to you guys, that can help me determine if that is the case.
And proceed with information and method of how verify that DVD

And also contribute with precise information how to start this "Restore" process with accurate skill.
I am not really sure how to do this, And I also fear that this system-roll-back could backfire.

4. Right now I have a clean win7 installation, right.
There is nothing to backup, I have data elsewhere and if anything in the process above (3) goes wrong i simply reinstall the machine.
