I have tried all the suggestions I could find in a search of Bleeping Computer and still get "System repair disc could not be created. The parameter is incorrect. (0x80070057)". I don't have any kind of cloud storage or data encryption. I have a PC I built myself. I have tried running from command prompt. I ran sfc /scannow without errors. I tried CD-R, DVD-R, and DVD+R. I can burn CDs and DVDs so I don't have a burner problem. Is there anything else I can try?

It's possible you get this error if you have any Truecrypt volumes open.

 

If you do not have Truecrypt, Type CMD in the searchbox Right click > Run as Adminsitrator and type

 

recdisc.exe

 

Does it work using the above command?

Thank you for the response.

I don't have Truecrypt or any data encryption on my PC. I had already tried recdisc.exe which resulted in the same error but I tried it again running as administrator. Same error.

I know this does not solve your problem but you can use the Windows Install disk to preform the same tasks as a System Repair Disk. A System Repair disk created on another computer (same 32bit or 64bit) will also work.

 

See if the following fixit it will work.  Edit: Can you create a Restore Point or does that also fail?

Good to know. Thanks.

 

No problem with restore points. I monitor them frequently just to be sure. I'm a little paranoid about restore points.

Method one: My clock setting already had a decimal. 

 

Method two: Fix-It did not work.

I am out of ideas then, sorry. Hopefully somebody else has run into this problem and found a solution.

 

Just a side note and this is not a rescue disk but could help if the computer does not boot and you need to recover data. Take a look at Aoemi PE builder. It's a relatively small download and will build a PE disk with optional programs you add.

I forgot to mention. Do you see anything in Event Viewer that may give a clue to the failure?

I see nothing in the Past Hour column for Critical, Error or Warning Event Types. Other than that, I wouldn't know what I was looking at.
