Agreed - very generic. Google searchs on this error have not been very specific.

The recovery is made using an internal cd on my desktop.

Frank FreeseAuthor Commented:
yes - but there's nothing in it. what a bummer. Do you happen to know of any third party software that could create a system recovery disk for Win 7?
0
 
nobusCommented:
you have to create one for each different system
you can try a repair one from here  : http://cybernetnews.com/windows-7-recovery-disc/

nice to hear that, but did it work as expected?

Since I just purchased from HP their recovery creation CD the other day it presented a different set of problems when trying to upgrade to SP1 after I ran it. I am now trying to resolv that problem and if I can't I'll use th recovery disk I download and create as you suggested. I can't imagine why people get so angry and frustrated with MS. If I have to revert to Plan B as suggested I'll keep you posted.
