    There is no recdisc.exe. If you remember, Vista didn't have that function either, just a non working stub, oddly.

    Well, hopefully the final final version in October 18th will have the recdisc.exe file. If not, then I'll just have it available for download in the tutorial if it will still work in the 8.1 RTM.

    Well, no good news.

    After testing a copied recdisc.exe file from a 64-bit Windows 8 to a 64-bit Windows 8.1 system32 folder, it still will not work to create a system repair disc.

    I sure hope so. Although using a USB would be faster, easier, and more handy.

    Create recover drive works ok for usb. It has the annoying habit of formatting the usb stick, and you just get the bog standard options in winre.

    This may have been ask before. If you create the recovery USB in 8.1, can you copy that to a CD and use that?

    Can this be exported to an ISO? I have an ISO booting device.

    Hello xbliss,

    You could create an ISO file from the DVD.

    If you like, you could just create a bootable USB directly using the method below instead though.
