Cannot create recovery dvds

Any idea why I can't click "ok" ?

 

I really need to restore.

Re: Cannot create recovery dvds

I see the box with the question voulez-vous continuer is also greyed out but did you try putting a tic mark in the box anyway? I know i have encountered such grey boxes that are still working even when greyed out -- just can't remember if this message when starting to create the recovery disks was one of those instances.

Re: Cannot create recovery dvds

Cereal, welcome to the forum,

 

are you able to click on the box next to the statement that the disks will only be able to be used on that system and then click on OK?

 

Don't know French, but I've seen this type of message in German and English.

 

Hope this helps

Andy

I believe it is because a set of recovery CDs have already been made in the past. You are only allowed to make one copy apparently.

Yes it is,

I just tested on my machine where I have burnt the disks once and this is the message I get (in Swedish.)
