This is a great feature, particularly for those folk with Windows 7 pre-installed and who DO NOT have a Windows 7 installation DVD.
Windows 7 when installed as the only operating system to it's own hard drive creates a small separate System partition
. On this partition it places the boot system files and access to a complete set of recovery tools, including Startup Repair, System Restore, Complete PC Restore and the Command Prompt. These and more recovery options are available WITHOUT having to insert and boot to a Windows 7 installation DVD.
In the past with Windows Vista, folk without an installation DVD either had to borrow one from a friend, download and burn one, or restore their systems to state in which they received them, losing all settings and independently installed programs in the process. This also makes providing online support to these folks a cinch!Select the Ramdisk Options to access the Recovery OptionsThe file loading process is the same as when booting to installation DVDSelect a keyboard layout Log on with your administrator passwordFull access to all the recovery options
