System Repair Disc Failure - Incorrect Parameter 0x80070057


  • SBS 2011 Essentials.  Trying to create a System Repair Disc via Start-All Programs-Maintenance-"Create a System Repair Disc".  

    A blank CD is in the internal burner, drive D:\

    The burner works fine, and I did a couple of test burns.

    Getting error:

    System Repair Disc could not be created.  The parameter is incorrect. (0x080070057).

    This is on an evaluation version of SBS 2011 Essentials (which shouldn't matter), and I am trying to confirm that a bare metal restore actually works.  So far, it has been an epic fail!  

    Or is there some other way to initiate a bare metal recovery that doesn't involve the System Repair Disc?

  • Hi Stan:

    Have you tried a DVD instead of a CD?

    I have not seen the dl for the trial.  What format is it?  If ISO you can make a DVD from it in another computer.

    I found a link from Grey Lancaster that said "any same version Windows DVD would repair Windows".... ymmv.
