Can?t create recovery disc in windows 7 error the parameter is incorrect (0x80070057) in windows 7
  

I am getting an error if I am trying to create a System Repair Disk in Windows 7 that states "System repair disc could not be created. The parameter is incorrect. (0x8007057)". I have checked that the Samsung DVD-RW drivers are up to date and also dont have any problems burning any discs from other softwares but still cant create it? Can anyone tell me how do I solve this problem? Thanks

To solve this issue, open cmd and then type bcdedit /enum all. You will get an entry like this or more - C:\Recovery\(some long string)\winre.wim. You need to make the below directory based on the value that is shown before:
md c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb

After that put Windows 7 install DVD and cancel any autorun prompts. So, if your CD/DVD drive is D: then use the below code or change it accordingly:
copy d:\sources\boot.wim c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb\winre.wim

copy d:\boot\boot.sdi c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb

copy d:\boot\bootfix.bin c:\Recovery\0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb

Note that the folder "0b3447fa-c429-11de-afd2-bdec487c77bb" wont be the same on your computer, simply run bcdedit /enum all and then find the proper name of the folder from the list. After that run recdisc.exe and then you will be able to make the recovery dvd or cd.

I just found an easy solution for this issue. I used to have the same problem in my Windows 7 64bit operating system. The CD drives were also on E: and I was not able to create a repair CD, so I dont think that it is a drive letter problem. After searching on the net I found a software called Tweak7 and installed it in my pc. After running it, I went to the Misc Tweaks \ Systems tools tab and used their "Create a system repair disk" and it worked for me without any problems. So you can also try this same software and fix your issue.

If the above solution doesnt work for you then try to use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files. To do this, click on Start and then in Search bar type cmd to open command prompt. After that you need to type sfc /scannow in the cmd and then press Enter. This command will scan all protected files and replace the corrupted files with the working one as well. For more information visit this website - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833
