Usually a restore CD is used upon boot. Pop the CD in the drive and then reboot the machine. What make/model machine is it?

Sorry, I mis-understood what you were asking. You really can't "make" a new CD that specific to your machine. However you can contact the place where you bought your machine and they should be able to make another for you specific to your machine and software.

if your current operating system is not corrupted you can ghost the partition to image with norton ghost 2003 or 2004. this is a temperay solution. call up your pc manufacturer and ask for a replacement restore CD. this should cost you about $10.

given any series there are many variations in hardware. you must have the exact model number. example: presario 5600 series, you would need to know MT33-SR for your specific computer. their tech support will tell you where this number is.

another solution is make a cd copy of the restore disc, if it is scratched get it polished first. my opinion is your CD is not corrupt, that is not possible. i think what really happened was a hidden partition that held restore data got corrupted or changed. tech-support is what you need to call, not tech forums

no offense but uhm, e-machines blow lol, if you spend like 500 bucks on one of their machines, i'd build you one that's faster and way more reliable, plus i'd give you a free copy of winxp and office xp, and.. art programs, whatever =X
