I have a suspicion that the recovery disc 1, unless it was used only to access the repair your computer options, if the disc offers such. has commenced a reinstallation of the operating system
Turn on computer, put in Recovery Disk #1.
Tell it to run from hard drive, Click "Next"
Take out disk, Click "Finish"
and that is why you are now presented with no restore points have been created.EDIT
Although you have not provided the exact model of Elite I see now what you refer to and providing you did not proceed past the option for the repair etc. then it has not of course started the reinstallation.http://h10025.www1.h...ct=4160012#N696
although that is for Windows 7 the principle is the same.I suggest you make this CD and boot from it
and then folllow the guide and use it to recover your data
ALSO which Elite model please.
and if this
Microsoft Start-Up Repair Tool" - it repaired 1 item
refers to the start up repair on repair my computer, then it only fixes one error at a time, so you should run it until it reports that it cannot repair the error or alternatively another report that indicates it is pointless running it again. However it only fixes windows file problems, it is partially the replacement for the repair install as it was called on XP, so it will not help with a problem if it is within the windows file system
