I need to create a bootable mobo disk using the 'express recovery2' exe file from the GB website. When I download it, it shows up as a .exe, which I didn't think was an image, but I've tried directly burning it to disk, and changing the extension to .iso and burning it as an image, but no worky. I know there is a difference between burning to cd and making a disk bootable from an image file, i just can't seem to get this exe file to work as a bootable image. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

ah well, that would be because they release a zipped version that exe's out to the iso. :whistle:

Just dl'd it - run it, when asked where to extract, give it a name you'll remember; it will extract to "XR2 Ver.1.01.iso", which you'll then want to burn to disk...
