    I'm building a computer for my grand son. Trying to create a multi-boot menu with recovery option when running into "default windows" boot failure.

    1 - Microsoft windows 7 (default in 5 secs)
    2 - Recovery

    I'd created a 40GB recovery boot partition, copied the system repair disc into it, also copied "WindowsImageBackup" folder then made it bootable.

    When I rebooted the system immediately went into system repair mode with repair mode menu and no other boot options available.

    Can someone pointed out what Id missed or done wrong? Perhaps it's not possible doing this with default built-in windows tools?...
