Windows 7 offers an easy way to create a System Repair Disc—and you can often do this without even using an installation disc. This is a great option for situations when you don’t have an installation disc or the original system manufacturer discs readily available.
Click the Start button and then in the “Search programs and files” box, type system repair disc
and press enter. This launches a simple tool that will create a bootable recovery disc. Note that if all the necessary files are not available on your system, the tool may ask for a Windows 7 installation disc. But in many scenarios, this will not be required.
The resultant disc can be used to boot your system and access various system recovery options.
