creating windows bootable dvd for backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have just had to pay to have my Windows 8.1 laptop reloaded because the harddrive crashed and so I would like to create a bootable backup disc in case it happens again.  I downloaded Windows 7 DVD downloader but it requires framework 2.0 or later.  Since I could not find version 2.0 I downloaded ver 4.6 and it still complains asking for the .net version.  How do I fix this?

    Also I am not sure if this will do what I want as it needs an iso file.  Can I just down load win 8.1 iso without buying it again?
