    Problem: "System repair disc could not be created" "the parameter is incorrect. (0x80070057)".

    Hello rdwray,

    Do you have a TrueCrypt volume mounted? If so dismount the volume, and try creating the repair disk again?

    TrueCrypt is a free program to encrypt with.

    Try a sfc /scannow command for the last message. Afterwards, try creating the repair disk again.

    I tried the sfc /scannow just a little bit and it did not find any issues.

    In that case, you may need to refresh Windows 8 to fix this.

    It depends on what you wanted to do, but not for most things.
