System Repair Disk?

Let say I have five machines running Windows 7 but are of different makes and models. My question is would I need to or is it most appropriate to make a repair disk for each machine or could I just make one for all machines?

Also if you do a clean install on a computer but have a clean repair disk from an old computer with the same operating system do you need to make a new repair disk?

I know this kind of sounds stupid but I do a lot of installs at least 7 a day and I would hate to think I would need that many dvd's for each install ya know, but I'm not sure that why I'm askin'.....

If you are going to Create a Recovery disk for these machines then you will only require 1 CD

But if you are planning on Reinstalling Windows on Multiple PC's then you will need more than one Licience key

See System Repair Disc - Create For More Information

Hope This Helps,

Got ya so basically the information that the repair disk has from one machine to help fix the problem would still work for another machine even though I didn't make the disk on the other machine it?....and I understand the second part, but didn't know that...

System Repair Disk not booting into repair options
Created it with no problems, apparently at least. My BIOS is set to boot from CD drive...so why won't my machine boot from the system repair disk? There were no errors when disk was created. My machine just boots to windows. Anyone else experience this with Win 7 Professional? Any tips?
