Is a system repair disc the same as a recovery disc?

    Just bought a new laptop with windows 7, was going to create a recovery disc but it just gives the option for a system image and a system repair disc? Is the repair disc the same as a recovery disc?

    Thanks all.



    the same

    its the disk you insert at boot time to give you the option to do a full format / reinstall OR restore from the system image.

    Cool, thanks for that


    make sure you do a system image to restore though (after getting rid of all the junk pre-loaded software, setting it up how you like it!)
