    Cannot create Systems Repair Disk only Recovery USB


    I have an HP Envy with a recovery partition. I did indeed create a dedicated USB drive that copied the recovery partition from the partition on the hard drive that shipped with the unit.

    I wanted to create a restore registry type of system repair disk as you could in Windows 7. However even though I read that the option should appear in the Recovery Options that says: Create a Systems Repair Disk with a CD or DVD (see System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8), that option never appears.

    While I do have Acronis as a backup I would like a quick bootable CD/DVD that offers a registry restore option. But perhaps that is what the recovery partition is for and when the time comes it will offer me that option, not sure (????).

    Or may be there is a separate .iso I can downlaod and burn like I did for Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit

    Thank you in advance

    Thank you but I am not sure what it does before I use this?
    Is there another reference with some screen shots and such?
    THanks

    It makes an .iso file , then offers to burn it to cd/dvd.

    Similar to the make a recovery disc thing on windows 7, with a few other options in there as well as the standard windows recovery options. Pretty easy, you just run as admin on the command file. Screenies here

    The button called RECOPTX64 takes you to the standard windows recovery options.

    Or ctrl+alt+r for rec options , and ctrl+alt+e to get back to the menu

    A registry restore is entirely different from a system recovery. I'm a bit confused by your original post.

    I think he means system restore.
