How do you order a recovery disc for a Altec laptop for windows 7?

anyone know the phone number and how much should expect to pay for this?

also, if can actually get a Windows 7 installation disc..what is the difference? (Btw, this Windows Installation disc is for 1 computer only..but can it be used again and again like a recover disc?)

WHAT IS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A "RECOVERY DISC " AND AN "OPERATION DISC"?
PLEASE EXPLAIN.


Answer

Recovery disc is a Windows disc made especially for that particular PC
years ago, people used to be able to do a recovery disc on machines that not came for, but not anymore.
In another word, recovery disc is a special version of that OS with all additional drivers and software.

Here is the answer to your question:
Some companies lately have the option to save your recovery disc on your hard drive instead, and have a special software that enables user to create those recovery disc(s) for you. If you have that you can create recovery discs for free. Search something called "Recovery" on your start menu.

While Operation disc, or so called OS disc, is the OEM version of the system that should be installed on only one machine (unless they authorize you to do more)
IT IS ILLEGAL TO INSTALL ONE OPERATION DISC ON MORE THAN ONE MACHINE if it was not made for that (Some Windows7 versions allows you to install on 3 machines like Windows7 family pack)

Otherwise, it is illegal.

Let me know if that makes sense
