I have a Lenovo G570 laptop and I want to create a recovery disk.  I made one when I first got the computer but the disks are scratched and I fear they won't work.  I went to the Lenovo forum and I can't find instructions.  They have a one-key recovery system but I want the disk.  Besides being infected (and still waiting for help) I am having problems with my Windows Notepad and want a disk.


Anybody know?

From what I read One Key recovery will create those disks.

I see the following note:

If you use CD, you'll need 17 CDs
If you use DVD, you'll need only 3 DVDs

You should wait until you are given a clean bill of computer health to avoid any problem with creating a system repair disk.

I think that is what you are wanting to create....a System Repair Disk. A System Repair Disk can be created using any Windows 7 computer.

I would seriously recommend creating an image of the entire drive and store it on an external medium such as an external hdd or DVDs.

That's after you finish getting the malware removed.


You can use the backup program in Windows 7 or another program such as Macrium Reflect to create an image. That image 

can be easily used to reinstall on existing hdd or onto another drive when your present hdd fails.

To create a system repair disc
  1. Open Backup and Restore by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Backup and Restore.

  2. In the left pane, click Create a system repair disc, and then follow the steps. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    • If you're prompted to insert a Windows installation disc, it means that the files needed to create the system repair disc can't be found on your computer. Insert a Windows 7 installation disc.
