Default Windows 7 recovery disc....

Okay so my friends laptop is blue screen crashing, due to bad windows files...

And since laptops don't have a recovery partition (stupid), nor do they come with a windows disc for issues (more stupid, so many reasons i hate laptops. not because they suck but mainly the fact that manufacturers put very little effort into a laptop compared to desktops) So looking into being able to make a recovery disc.... but it microsoft is super vague. So can I make this recovery disc on my computer to fix his?

Or is it like making on specifically for THAT computer....

Rephrase, is their any way to repair his windows 7 without messing with the bios and drivers needed for his laptop

Default Re: Windows 7 recovery disc....

try to enter repair. i think you do that with F9 or something like that. you will see a black screen where you can choose things like "safe mode" "safe mode with command prompt" "repair" and some other things.

if this does not work then just call the manufacturer and demand a recovery CD for your machine.
i did that with my DELL long time ago. i got the CD's needed for the recovery after 1 week.
but yes, it does suck that laptops does not come with recovery CD's.
