    Q1) Perfect.

    Q2) any practical experience like that?

    Q3-Q4) When you don't get the "Copy contents from the recovery partition to the recovery drive" option, then it means that you do not have a recovery partition, or one that will work with this.

    a)I have that option what i want to know is the difference between click/unclick

    b)"What if I need to do a clean install,where will get the Win disc(files) for clean install,as original Microsoft cd was not there?"As using recovery drive will also install all that unwanted bloatwares,so its always better to go with cleans install

    Q5-Q6) Researching on this, will comeup back on this.

    If you know the brand and model number of your laptop, I can look up how the manufacturer says you can create recovery media that can be used to reinstall Windows if needed. If all else fails, the manufacturer should also have a way for you to be able order recovery media for free or at a low cost.

    You would want to check that box to include a copy of your recovery media on the USB. This will allow you to be able to reinstall Windows back to factory conditions with the USB if you should not be able to from the recovery partition.

    It depends on your PC's model number, but here's a link from Lenovo below for more information on how to recover Windows.

    This is the second thread I've seen from Nancyeig requesting someone to use Gchat. Something fishy here.

    I finally obliged her & chatted on Gmail chat & nothing was amiss in her conduct.

    I would rather post in the forum though.
    I think & type slow.
    Posting in the forum gives me time to think about things.
