  2. cannot create repair disc

    Hi,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with creating system repair disc. I will certainly help you with the issue.

    To understand the issue better, I would like to know please check if the CD/DVD drive is detecting in Device manager and check for yellow color exclamation mark next to it?

    This issue could occur if the media is corrupted, hence you need to replace the media which you are using as some of the media may cause this type of issues while burning. Try the below steps and check if it helps to resolve the
    issue.

    Step 1.

    In the search bar, type recdisc.exe and hit
    Enter.

    Step 2.

    • Now press Windows key + X and click
      Control Panel (All Items view), and click on the
      Backup and Restore
      icon.
    • Now click on the Create a System recovery disc link in the left blue pane.
    • Insert a blank CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive and click on the Create disc button.
    NOTE: If you are prompted to insert a Windows installation disc, it means that the files needed to create the system repair disc cannot be found on your
    computer. Insert a Windows 10 installation disc.

    • It will now start creating the System Repair Disc
    NOTE: If any Auto Play window pops up, just close it.

    • When it's finished, click on the Close button.
    • Click on OK.
    • Now remove the remove and label your new Windows 10 System Repair Disc from the CD/DVD drive.

    Hope this helps. If you need further assistance with Windows, let us know and will be glad to help.

  3. Unable to create System Repair Disc with some files missing on Windows 10

    Hi Duncan,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about creating a repair disc on your computer. We will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the complete error message of this issue?
    • How exactly are you trying to create System Repair Disc?

    Try the below troubleshooting steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run the SFC scan as System File Checker utility in Windows allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a
    Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected.

    Refer: Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files


    Step 2: I suggest you to refer to the below Microsoft article about creating a recovery drive and check if it helps.

    Create a recovery drive

    For more information refer:
    Recovery options in Windows 10


    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue and with the required information. We will be happy to help you further.
