Mine out of the box without any apps installed totaled to 1 cd (master boot) and 1 DVD. So I am guessing a total of 5 or 6 cds.

1 off Rescue and Recovery

5 off Product Recovery

(I think that it is a pity that you are not informed at the start when creating the discs; after all, what do you do if you only have 4 spare CD's?)

As supplied by IBM..... 1 x Boot CD and 6 x Product Recover CDs, for a total of 7 CDs.

Too bad I don't have a DVD burner on my laptop, otherwise that would've saved me the pain of burning 6 CDs....

can you burn to DVDs if you have a burner?

As I recall, the first (Rescue & Recovery) has to be to CD, while the rest (Product Recovery -5 discs) can be to one DVD.

That is good to hear. I need to burn off the recovery set and I have an external DVD burner so that makes my day. Thanks
