As was the case with Vista when Windows becomes unbootable, you can look up to Neosmart’s recovery discs. These discs are extremely handy to have especially if you didn’t receive any installation media with your new computer, which is a common occurrence when purchasing from a majority of manufacturers including Dell and HP.
The Windows 7 DVD has a complete “recovery center” that provides you with the option of recovering your system via automated recovery, rolling-back to a system restore point, recovering a full PC backup, or accessing a command-line recovery console for advanced recovery purposes. But, as I said earlier, most of the PC manufacturers don’t give you the DVD.
But the good news is that Microsoft has tried to address this problem and have thankfully made a recovery disc for this purpose. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows 7, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. You can create a system recovery disc for Windows 7 yourself or else download the recovery discs prepared and hosted by Neosmart.
Download NeoSmart’s recovery discs for 32 and 64-bit systems, burn them to CD, and pop them into any system that claims it’s unable to find the files needed to boot or is otherwise corrupted.
These Windows 7 System Recovery Discs are a free download via BitTorrent from NeoSmart
