    Error When Making Recovery Disks


    Hi,

    I bought a new PC the other day, and it has Windows 8. It advised me to make recovery disks, so I started the Setup Wizard. However, when it tried to actually burn the first disk there was an error, and it didn't complete.

    Now, when I try to do the recovery disks again, right after it has prepared the files, the following error comes up: "Unhandled Exception: cannot create a file when that file already exists.".

    So i'm a bit stuck. Is there a way to get my recovery disks done?

    Thanks

    Connect the MF and see if you can get a copy of your Systems disk. I did that with an HP that wouldn't boot up from the recovery disk nor make a set (similar to your problem). HP sent me a new set no questions asked.
