    How to Create a System Repair Disc in Windows 10

    information   Information
    A system repair disc can be used to boot your computer. It also contains Windows system recovery tools that can help you recover Windows from a serious error or restore your computer from a system image or restore point.

    A system repair disc is the CD/DVD version of a USB recovery drive.

    This tutorial will show you how to create a bootable system repair disc that only boots to advanced startup options used to help troubleshoot and recover your Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to create a system repair disc.

    Note   Note
    A created 32-bit system repair disc can only be created in a 32-bit Windows 10 and used to repair a 32-bit Windows 10.

    A created 64-bit system repair disc can only be created in a 64-bit Windows 10 and used to repair a 64-bit Windows 10.

    Does one Repair Disk work in both Win 10 Pro & Win 10 Home, or do you have to make separate disk?

    Hello Clint,

    Yes, it'll work in both. The only requirement is that the system repair disc must be the same 32-bit or 64-bit as the installed OS.

    Just stumbled upon this tutorial. Very interesting!

    Does this mean that, together with System Image Backup there is no need now for third party disk imaging software like Acronis True Image? - which I used with Windows 7 but found very complicated. Also use Carbonite to backup my personal files.

    Hello equoox,

    Yes, you could use this and a system image to no longer need 3rd party software.

    However, it's always best to keep multiple images as a backup. Acronis is a good choice if you already have it, and Macrium Reflect is another good option.
