Unable to create System Image or System Repair Disk, unspecified error: 0x80004005.

Original title: Unable to create System Image or System Repair Disk

I just purchased a new Windows 7 computer. I tried to Create a System Repair Disk, but keep getting the error msg - unspecified error (0x80004005). I've tried - and wasted - several DVDs in the process. Also, not able to create a System Image Disk. The computer says I have to format the disk and, when I click Okay, it goes thru the motion then gives me an error msg that Format was unsuccessful. (Also, it does not give me the option of not formatting the disk.)  Very frustrating....

Hi iamkira,

This issue may be caused by a conflict with other programs installed on your computer, usually antivirus software. Follow the steps in this document to create the disc in a clean boot state.
