    is there any place online where i can find recovery disks for desktop and laptops??

    it would be cool if we can start a thread and have users post there recovery media.

    Maybe handy but it is a lot to ask someone to upload for example two dvd's , when all the information is available here to make OEM:SLP dvd or even AIO Multi manufacturer OEM;SLP dvd.

    Yes it is alot to ask for someone to upload the two dvds, but i do see his point, making the oem dvds gives you the basic windows install. Sometimes would be nice to get the original software that came bundled with the pc when they bought it.

    Now, most of the today's Laptop's or PC's coming pre-installed (if there is an OS!!) and the user has to build the Recovery CD/DVD on his own.

    To upload some of those Images would cost the Uploader quite a bit of time and also he has to pay for the Bandwidth used while uploading is also very slow.

    Wit a little bit of effort, most of those images could be get from the manufacturer directly!

    You're right, many don't, include I!

    OP asked for recovery CD/DVD and that 's the originals from that machines with all needed drivers.

    The HP G7 2233cl comes with 3 DVD's and I cannot skip the 3'rd one lol. So I paid 12 or 16 something USD for dvd's I probably wont use, other than playing with (and I already did that). All new systems I've worked on now give you an option to build your own unless you like pay for disks.
