My guess would be the ASUS disk would be what is called a "BOOT " disk and what the store created were the OS disks. You would use these for system failures and ONLY then. The store disks (usually 2 or 3 DVD'S) would/should contain the total operating system and would restore the system back to "as new" . The boot disk would be used IF the system failed to boot and would/could recover the system from within the system (OS). ONLY use these IF you need to, store them in a safe location as a just in case.
I recently bought an Asus CM1730
Windows 7 desktop. It came with an 'Installation Disk' -- the retailer created a set of 'Recovery Disks' for it.
What is the difference between them? When would I use each of
them? Do either contain Windows?
Thank you for your help.
