Unable to creat a repair disk under Windows 7

Unable to creat a repair disk under Windows 7. Was able to create a system image on external hard drive. Message: "repair disk has stopped working." Windows will attempt to find a solution etc. This appears right after I start to create the repair disk. Also, I can install Acronis Tru Image Home 10, but when I try to run it I get a similar message even though it is listed on the Microsoft compatibility site as compatible with Windows 7

Hi writeon1,

Welcome to Microsoft Windows Forum.

I would suggest you to create the system image in C drive itself and try to create a startup disk.

You may follow the steps mentioned below to Create System Repair Disk in Windows 7.

Step 1: Press the Start button on your keyboard (the one that bears the Microsoft logo) or click the Start button from the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
Step 2: In the search box type in System Repair.
Step 3: Select Create a System Repair disk
Step 4: Take a blank DVD and put in the burning drive (DVD writer). You could also use a CD, just make sure it is large enough to store the System Repair Disc.
Step 5: Select the burning drive from the dropdown menu.
Step 6: Click Create disc. Wait for the burn process to complete.

Tips and warnings
•Here is how you can replace steps 1, 2 and 3 in the tutorial presented above: Start -> All Programs -> Maintenance -> Create a System Repair Disc.
•If you have a Windows 7 DVD you can use that to boot to the Windows Recovery Environment. If you bough a PC with Windows 7 preinstalled (OEM license) then you do not have a DVD. Use System Repair Disc to create a system image -> use the disc when something goes wrong and you cannot boot Windows 7.
•Be careful where you store the System Repair Disc. Keep it somewhere safe, but not so safe that you forget where you put it.
