Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

information   Information

We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)

I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
or
You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.

No I haven't made any OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks.Now I have an stabil pc, eveyrthing works properly.I have made an backup using Acronis Backup , I've made an Cd for that and as you told I've prepared an system repair disc . Now I have an question.Are those things I did the same with a original system recovery disk.I mean do I need anything to create this partition again?

If you backed up all the partitions, you can Reimage with that backup to restore all partitions.

If you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks, YES, will restore all partitions.

In general, a "repair disk" only contains WinPE and allows you to boot using it to run repairs on Windows. It does NOT do a Windows restore and can not be used to do a Windows installation.

A full image of a Win7 install would not begin to fit on a CD and probably not on a DVD, either -- which is why you make a "set" of recovery disks for doing a factory restore.

If you want to be able to restore what you have right now, you need to do an "image" backup, and personally, I would recommend using Macrium Reflect (free version) to do an image backup to an external drive.
