Specs: Windows 7, Intel Pentium D 925
I just dutifully created four Recover Discs as suggested by Windows 7. Now, how and when do I use it? Is there a manual to put with the discs for handy reference?

Thanks for your interest. Uncle Dewey

✔ Best Answer
When you press the power button be ready to press the ESC key -- left top corner. You only have a few seconds or you will have to start over. This screen list things like
ESC for Boot menu -- F9 Diagnostic -- F10 Setup -- F11 Recovery. If using the ESC key their will be 3 selections. Use the arrow keys and select -- CDDVD -- Put the number one Disc in and close the tray and press Enter key and wait. After it loads their will be a chance to back out and restart your computer. You will also be given a chance to create a backup of your files. --------------------- I haven't tested F11 Recovery because my computer is set to go to Acronis True Image if pressed for my complete system recovery. -------------- You should also create a Repair Disc and it is used with the ESC Key to load. -- Start -- Control Panel -- Open the Icon -- Backup and Restore -- at the left top corner -- Create a system repair disc -- follow directions. This disc when used can let your computer fix problems without your help. I don't use the driver part.

Hey Cboy,

That looks like what I need to do the job. I have writeup from my previous Windows Vista Computer which looks like I could use on Windows 7 which gives some warnings about what I'm about to do. Hope I never use them--I never did on my last computer which I had for seven years.

Thanks a mil, Uncle Dewey
