R500 Preload backup.

Can anybody tell me the number of CD's required to do a R500 Vista Preload backup? I was in the process of doing a a backup and had got to end of writing recovery disk 10 when Microsoft rebooted my machine after doing an update  while I was away from the machine. I am not sure if disk 10 was the end of the recovery or not. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't know the number of CD's but for me it's 1 start CD and 2 recovery DVD's.

Re: R500 Preload backup.

Hi Basil,


To preserve the preload, all you are required to do is create RnR discs. Double check whether you are not saving RnR backups.


This tells how to create RnR discs:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-68317


Hope it helps.
