Can I make a Windows 7 Boot disc

Can I make a Windows 7 recovery Disc if I have the WinOld Folder after upgrading to Windows 8 Pro? I have an Acer Aspire Desktop M3470G.

You can not make recovery disks after upgrading to windows8, but here is a tip. IMMEDIATELY copy that winold folder to a flash drive or external hard drive. It will disapear after 30 days. This way, if you want to revert back to win7, you have the files and can copy that folder back to the C drive if neccessary.

Tabbiekatz, Thank you for the reply. I could copy the Winold Folder to another formatted drive and install it on there, could I not? Rather than a Flash drive Icould copy it to a CD, correct?  Smiley Frustrated
