Restore Disk Set from Recovery Partition (D:)

Howdy.

Can anyone direct me to instructions on how to create a DVD restore disk set from the (DSmiley Happy hard drive restore partition?

I'm going to restore to factory settings and reinstall Win Vista on my Inspiron 1521, and just want an external back up set in case something goes wrong during the restore process and the HD gets hosed.

Thanks!

You cannot create a "restore" DVD from the restore partition.

Bummer.

I'd assumed it was possible because I once did create a restore disk set from an HP computer running Windows XP.

Okie dokie. Thanks!

Hi David, Bad news, it cannot be done. If you need an dell reinstall cd/dvd, and live in the US, then use the link at my signature. Also what you can do is use Ghost, or True Acronis, and make an copy and put it on another Hard Drive as backup.

EDIT Sorry,  never read your post Rebel9. Opps.
