Windows 7: Windows 7 Embedded System Restore Disc

12 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Embedded System Restore Disc


I've downloaded Win7 Embedded and burned it onto a DVD.
Win7 Embedded is installed on one of my computers, and I've created a
System Restore Image.

Problem is;
When I try to install the System Image, It say's I need a Windows Restore Disc.
I have one for Win 7 Pro, but when I try to make one for Embedded it says I don't have
the correct files on the computer or something.

Best Regards!

Make your life easy and use free Macrium for imaging. It is far superior to Windows imaging.

Imaging with free Macrium

And for the recovery disc, download the .iso from my Skydrive and burn it to CD. That saves you a lot of time because if you make it from within Macrium, you have a 2 hour download.

To use your WIn7 backup image to do a System Image Recovery, you can make a System Repair Disc - Create or make Win7 installation media for your licensed version from Steps 1/2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
