Can't create a system Repair Disc

    Question

  • I have a new HP PC with factory installed Windows 7 Home Premium.  Back-ups are always successful but whenever I try to create a system Repair Disc I immediately get the message, "System Repair Disc could not be created.  The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057)."  What's it trying to tell me?

  • Here's one way to get around it

    Boot up with the installation, click on repair, then the Command prompt type in recdisc, put a blank CD or DVD in the drive and you're off.

    This problem also occurs when it doens't like the media you are trying to use. Whatever you're using, try CD-R or DVD-R anything except what you're trying to use and I'd guarantee you it will work.

  • As I know HP has their own repair disks. Maybe HP has customized their system to disable this feature so users can only use their own repair disks. I suggest you contact HP support for more information.
