Run recdisc.exe and it thinks that is your cd\dvd drive

Otherwise, or in addition, you can make a much fancier recovery media iso file ( which can the be extracted to bootable usb) by using the thing linked on my earlier post. I haven't updated that in a long while, but you could give it a try.

here it is:

new7x64upd.zip

Extract the zip and run the .cmd file

Create system repair disc on Win7 w/o DVD drive or Win7 .ISO file?-new7x64upd.jpg


This can extract iso files to usb Usb7ice.zip

This is what I see instead of your pictures (even when you posted them here):



The URLs you're using:

are probably not accessible with other user's credentials. Google console gives me this error:

When I go there, it brings up the login screen.

So better use some good image sharing site. I use imgur.com

Strange. They show up for me. Maybe something to do with your browser.

I must have posted thousands of images over the years. Plenty of other people can see them.

They show up for me too. I have had this same conversation with another member on another thread. No matter how I posted the images they (and only they) couldn't see them, never found out why....

Just download Macrium Reflect Free. When installed you can make images to your heart's content from within W7. Once set up it will also ask you if you want to make a rescue disk/flash drive, aka a Win PE drive. You plug in your USB drive and simply let it make a bootable version of MRF. You can then backup or restore existing images without booting into W7.

Never had to do a re-install again since using MRF years ago, not that W7 ever caused me many issues.
