To make a recovery disk for an eMachines computer, turn it on, use the recovery management feature and press the create disk function. The standard hard drive of a computer already utilizes a recovery partition, so creating a disk essentially transfers those files onto a CD-ROM. However, it is important to note that the procedure for installing the recovery partition changes according to the model of the computer.
Every procedure begins by booting the operating system. The next step is also virtually the same, and requires navigating into the Start menu, and to the eMachines Recovery Management section. However, the steps afterward vary according to the operating system, as explained below.
If using Windows XP, press on the option to create a Factory disc. Then continue to follow the prompt by inserting a CD into the drive and pressing the start button. Wait until the disc is finished, then exit out of the recovery prompt.
Users who use the Windows Vista operating system utilize a different recovery prompt. This process requires two discs, instead of one. Insert the first disc and wait for the partition to be installed. When the prompt asks for the next one, remove the other one and insert it as well. After both discs are finished, press the done button on the prompt and close out its interface.
