Hi everyone, I don't want to be creating a repeat discussion but I have checked out the links including bootdisk.com and the disks you create there are only for floppy disks. I just would like to know, does anyone know how you can create emergency boot disks for free in xp, vista and windows 7? Thanks. Andrew

The XP boot disk says for XP with SP 2. Will a computer with SP 3 throw a monkey wrench into it?

Hi Fiddle, I'm not sure about this, but others can correct me if I'm wrong. I'm thinking that if you have a system with xp service pack 3 then the disk would be useful in getting your xp working again and then it's just a case of getting the service pack update once again from Microsoft updates.

If you do a Repair Install from that disc you would have to reinstall SP3. If you just use it to get to the Recovery Console, to type chkdsk /R there would be no problems.
