Create recovery DVD for Windows 10?
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:05:37 PM »

With Windows 10, I have just been reinstalling fresh from installation ISO that they provided that they keep updating. Important data I have been storing on my google drive so that I dont need to recover data on a crashed system prior to reinstall.

There is always the option to repair the old install using this media too, but I havent gone that route with 10 yet as for I have only had Windows 10 64-bit corrupt on me once when I was messing around with trying out different video cards for benchmarking different ones on like hardware and Windows 10 didnt like the switching back and forth between nVidia and AMD cards of different generations where I think the problem was that I put in an older video card than that of the last driver version to where a driver too new for an older card was trying to run and I found myself stuck in a BSOD boot loop. I probably should have started with older cards first and worked my way forward with drivers.

Start->Run recdisc will create a System Repair disc.

Otherwise, from what I can find, Windows cannot create a Recovery Drive on a DVD without additional software. You can burn the standard Installation Media through the Media Creation Tool to DVD though.
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

Thank you both.
 Windows 10 is a work in progress. Some information seems to be not up to date.

One of the links I found lead me around and around and I ended up doing a download that I though would result in just a ISO file. But after that., it asked me to burn to DVD, which I did. It did make a 32 version of Windows 10, but I have yet to use it.
I an going to prepare a hard drive and see if it will install.

So, now it seems you can create a  a DVD install from Windows 10 in some process. Sort of. I will let you know if it works.  :)

Phew, I thought it may have just been me!  ???
couldn't see him in the previous posts and thought maybe a Mod had deleted an entry that made it make sense!?!

Geek-9pm is referring to a spam post. I saw it before it was removed.

It was SPAM? I did not know.  :-\

Anyway, I was able to make a USB boot device. I think I can make it into DVD.
Maybe I will try this:

Overview
When you download Windows from Microsoft Store, you have two options: You can download a collection of compressed files, or you can download an ISO file. An ISO file combines all the Windows installation files into a single uncompressed file.
If you choose to download an ISO file so you can create a bootable file from a DVD or USB drive, copy the Windows ISO file onto your drive and then run the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool. Then simply install Windows onto your computer directly from your USB or DVD drive.
If it works, you will hear from me.  :)

Mark.
