I recently completed building my own custom system. I installed it with Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit onto a RAID 0 array of two identical SSDs. (The BIOS setting for my SATA interfaces is set to RAID (as opposed to AHCI) and is maintained by the Intel X79 chipset and driver.)
When I try to create a system repair disc, I receive the error "System repair disc could not be created" along with "The parameter is incorrect. (0x80070057)". I have an LG Blu Ray burner and a 4.7GB DVD-R in the tray.
I have read all the articles I can find about this problem, but none of them seem to apply:
- I don't have an HP system.
- I'm not using TrueCrypt (it's not even installed).
- sfc /scannow found no errors. (I ran sfc in a cmd window that I started by right clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator".)
I tried running recdisc in three ways:
- Start->All Programs->Maintenance->Create a System Repair Disc
- Start->Control Panel->Backup and Restore->Create a system repair disc
- Starting a cmd window by right clicking the cmd icon and selecting "Run as Administrator", then typing "recdisc.exe".
In all three cases, I get exactly the same error. The GUI starts and asks me to select a CD/DVD drive and insert a blank disc into the drive. I only have the one drive, which shows up in the GUI as "BD-RE Drive (D:)". I already have a 4.7GB disc in the drive. The instant I click the "Create disc" button, I receive the aforementioned error.
What am I doing wrong?
