ERD or emergency repair disk

By northwood ·
Can you create an ERD, or Emergency repaor disk with XP Pro? IF so, then how?

In windows 2000 you can use the NT backup utility to create an ERD. But I don't see an option for ERD in the XP version of backup.

you will be glad to know that this does still exist just under a differnet name, ERD has been replaced by ASR Automated System Recovery.

To create ASR disk do the following,

Launch Windows XP backup Utility in Advanced Mode(programs->accessories->system Tools->Backup)

Click on Automated System Recovery Wizard buton and click next on the welcome screen

Select a name and media type for the backup and click next, and then Finish.
