"Do you need to make a Windows 7 recovery boot disk? Yes. It is essential for techs and end-users to have access to Windows 7 recovery options if it fails to boot. While most techs will have a full install disk, many users will not. In fact, many users don’t have any recovery disks, as they have purchased a new computer with Windows 7 pre-installed. That is why this disk is important. If Windows fails to load, you will need some way of booting into a mode that will give you options to load a restore point, run diagnostics or automatically repair issues you are having with start-up. This disk will not reload your Operating System, so users are still encouraged to burn recovery disks as instructed by the PC manufacturer."
