    Default Windows 7 64-Bit (x64) Recovery Disc






    Download Windows 7 64-Bit (x64) Recovery Disc





    These days people who get Windows 7 with a new computer or laptop from the major manufacturers like Dell, Acer, Toshiba HP and others will find they don’t get a Windows 7 DVD with their new computers. It doesn’t matter that you spent hundreds on your new computer with a valid Windows 7 you still are not entitled to the DVD.

    The problem with that is simple, when you have problems with your Windows installation and it’s not booting you need to use that disc to recover from the problem. For some people they have downloaded or borrowed Windows 7 discs from PC who purchased a full copy of 7 in a shop. Windows 7 has gone a step further having a simple recovery center with automated tools which will fix your install (unlike the XP days where you had to use Recovery Console and command lines to fix it) yet despite this without a disc customers can’t get to use this feature!

    Luckily Microsoft has listened to peoples complaints and have kindly made a recovery disc. It contains the contents of the Windows 7 DVD’s “Recovery Center”. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows 7 but does provide you with all the Recovery tools which should hopefully get you back on track.

    Download:

    Download Windows 7 64-bit (x64) Recovery Disc
    Edit: Sadly we received a DMCA Takedown request for these and can no longer provide download mirrors for these. Sorry about that :/

    Alternatively:

    Are you using the 32-bit version of Windows 7? (If you are unsure, you are most likely using 32-bit). If so:
    Download Windows 7 32-bit (x64) Recovery Disc

    Its important to ensure you use the right version (32/64 bit) for the Windows 7 you have otherwise it can cause problems!

    How to use:

    Unzip the recovery disc you downloaded, then burn the CD Image (ISO file) to a disc, if you are unsure how to do this why not have a look at Digiex's How to burn BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI images to disc guide.

    If your bios is set to boot from CD / DVD you can now put the burned disc in your computer and boot the recovery disc. If not you will have to set your computer to boot from DVD before the hard disk. You have to do this in the computers bios which is usually accessed by pressing F2 or Delete when you power the computer on.

    Cool upload, should come in handy. I still prefer to use the command line tools to do the fixes though, the automatic tool never seems to work for me.

    You can use both on this recover disc so it should be perfect for everyone.

    I've attempted to use this image twice,& I get the same error message.
    "Windows cannot open the required file D:/Sources/Install.wim
    The file does not exist."

    The first time,I simply extracted the files from the download them,& burned them to a DVD+R.The 2nd time,I used WinZip to unzip the file,before burning the image.Both times,I get the same error message when trying to reinstall Vista 64-bit.I'm using a friend's computer with a cheap Atapi burner (eMachines desktop) so I can't do too much tinkering with it.It didn't seem like the image took to long to burn,so maybe that is it.Please answer sonn,because I need to figure this out now.I don't have the cash foa Gateway Recovery disc (online websites take advantage of the fact that Vista isn't available anymore) so please help.

    This will not allow you to re install / do a clean install, its to recover and fix problems on your existing Windows 7 install. To perform a clean install you will need a proper windows 7 install disc, not this recovery cd.
