Lost your Windows Restore CDs?


If I had a nickel for every time I went to reformat a computer for a customer or friend that didn’t have their original install discs I would be a millionaire. What most people do not know is that most of the major computer manufacturers actually offer a way to get new Recovery Discs; you just have to know where to look.

What to do if you lost your Restore CDs?
