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.
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?
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.
