SO needless to say my windows is broken and I think I broke it. Won't go into the detail atm. Basically I'm looking to do a System Refresh since System Restore is failing no matter which of the three restore points I do and I don't want to backup so I figure this is the next best thing short of formatting. However it says I need a recovery media. I tried using a recovery media I made off my laptop but that didn't work. SO here is my question. Will a recovery media created on a broken windows, only just recover windows back to its broken state? Cause if so I don't want to even bother doing that. HOw does it work, does it just restore basic file systems. I need my registry to be fresh.
